LEGAZPI CITY, Feb. 22 (PNA) -- With certainty, she is now decided to vote for the upcoming 2016 presidential election after watching the 1st Pilipinas 2016 presidential debate on the national television late Sunday afternoon.

I am very convinced by what former DILG secretary Mar Roxas said. He will continue what was started by the Aquino administration. Being the future leader of this country, I want a president that is firm, honest and with clean hands," Siena Lei Tabuena, a graduating engineering student of Divine World College of Legazpi, said after watching the verba tussle among the five presidential aspirants.

For her, she said, Roxas is a man with will power to serve the country.

"Mar Roxas is my president. Among the presidentiables, he has a good track record in good governance, with his experience as a public servant, I really believe he will win," Christine D. Villanueva, a mother, a professional teacher and a wife of a police officer, said.

Roxas has a heart for the policemen, she added.

Joan Arango of EM's Barrio believes that Grace Poe is the right one for the position.

"Lahat 'yan corrupt, lahat yan may sariling interest. Try naman natin ang bago at 'yan si Grace Poe," Arango said.(PNA) RMA/FGS/CBD/EDS
