Opening statements:

 

Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago: There would be a uniform rule of law, not the rule of men or of people who bribe judges and other arbitrators in litigation... In the field of the peace and order, the police and the military will have bigger budgets and will have better training and will have better equipment.

 

Mayor Rodrigo Duterte: I would like to correct certain injustices in this government. But I can assure you that it will be a clean government and you will have a peaceful country and of course I said, drugs, which is my main target, I hope to suppress them to the end.

 

Vice President Jejomar Binay: Sa bahagi po naman ng hanap-buhay, ‘yong employment...wow, halos lahat ng Pilipino ay may trabaho... At sa pagkain po naman. Sa Binay administration, lahat po ng pamilyang Pilipino ay nakakakain ng tatlong beses. Sa bahagi ho ng pamahalaan. Ah, wala na hong kapalpakan.

 

Sen. Grace Poe: Permanenteng trabaho, pagkain sa bawat mesa, paggalang sa karapatan ng lahat, lalung-lalo na ang mga kababaihan na dapat siguro ay bigyan ng pansin at hindi maliitin at hindi apihin. Sa atin pong administrasyon dadalhin ko kayo sa isang lugar kung saan ang bawat lahat ay may patas na pagkakataon at hindi ang iilan lamang.

Sec. Mar Roxas: Sampung milyong trabaho ang malilikha sa anim na taon ng ating termino. Itong mga trabaho sa pagawaan, pabrika, call centers, sa turismo, construction, sa small and microenterprises, lahat ito ay uusbong dahil magiging malago ang ating ekonomiya.

 

 

On traffic:

 

Poe: Ako’y mag-aappoint ng isang secretary na traffic terminator. Wala siyang gagawin kundi babantayan ang bawat proyekto na matapos, right of way, dapat mabilis na maibigay para hindi nakababad. Cebu, dapat meron ding MRT, dapat Cagayan de Oro at ibang parte ng Pilipinas.

 

 

On contractualization:

 

Binay: Habang ikaw ay walang trabaho eh magagamit mo ‘yong savings mo. Kasi ako hindi ko lang bababaan, tatanggalin ko ‘yang income tax.

 

Roxas: Makaka asa ka sa loob ng tatlong buwan matapos ang pagupo ko bilang pangulo matatapos ang "endo" (end of contract).

 

 

On health:

 

Binay: Lahat ng barangay, magkakaroon ng barangay health center. Lahat ng barangay health center, kumpleto sa gamit, at lahat ng barangay health center, magkakaroon ng isang barangay health worker...At 'yong mga gamot...gamot, pagpapa-ospital, eh libre. Libre sa mahirap.

 

Duterte: It would be a good idea if you can place one doctor per barangay and he acts as the physician of that barangay...May 911 kasi ako. It’s free. Hot call [nang] 911, hatid sa ospital and I pay. Ako ang magbayad. Now for the entire Philippines, I will commit the PAGCOR funds...it’s about 30 billion, is it? I will commit it as a trust fund to be used only for the payment of the Filipinos who are in hospitals sa mga medical expenses nila.
