Senatorial aspirant and Bayan Muna chairperson Neri Colmenares on Monday called on his fellow candidates to “keep the people’s interest above everything else.”

“We are running because the people need us. We seek public office to put their needs as the government’s priority. We are running for public office because we aim to serve our people without any strings attached,” Colmenares said.

Colmenares said candidates should also keep the public discourse at a high level.

“We are presenting platforms and solutions; we owe it to our people to help them make an informed choice when they vote,” he added.

He also reminded the need to exercise added caution amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Let’s not forget to observe proper health protocols. I know that can be a challenge, especially as we all want to meet as many people as possible. But the last thing we want to do is create a spreader event during our sorties,” he pointed out.
