What stars would like to tell the next president

/ 12:53 AM May 02, 2016

It’s a week before the presidential elections. Do you know where your loyalty lies? The  candidates’ dramatiques beat all the telenovelas combined.

I asked some celebs what they would want to tell our next president, if they were to write him/her a letter.


As we anxiously wait for the moment of truth, let’s not allow the election frenzy to muffle that little voice inside us. Maybe more than choosing the right one, we must vote for the “ripe” one.

MARTIN Nievera

Martin Nievera: Your excellency, I know you will have your hands full with running our country and all, but I have a small request.


Please, no matter what, no matter why and no matter when, before you make any decision, please ask yourself, “What would Jesus do?”

Marvin Agustin: Please think of the youth; they will determine our nation’s progress. Educate them, empower them and inspire them, so that they will be better leaders than us when it’s their time to lead our country.

AIKO Melendez

Aiko Melendez: I hope that under your leadership, you can address the  drug problem   and crimes. And I also hope that corruption and red tape will finally end.

John Estrada: Dear Mr./Madame President, it is an understatement to say I am disappointed with the current state of our country.

I have been a law-abiding citizen and taxpayer of this country, that’s why I demand change. I want a complete overhaul of the existing…[practice] of finger-pointing, nonaccountability and apathy. I want a working president who takes his/her  job seriously.

I will also keep my end of the bargain to work harder [and observe] discipline. My hope is dwindling, but I’m willing to work with you for a better Philippines.



Zanjoe Marudo: As a Filipino citizen, I will follow all your laws. You can not do it alone. To make our country more progressive and to reform the system, it should start with each of us [doing his or her own share]. Please don’t let us down. Be good, and love our country.


Tom Rodriquez: I would urge our president to  look at the current state of the economy, to realize that we need a dynamic and open economy to generate jobs for every Filipino here and abroad. Perhaps a constitutional reform is in order.
