Dingdong Dantes Endorses Risa Hontiveros
Primetime star and youth icon Dingdong Dantes expressed his support to senatorial candidate and former PhilHealth Director Risa Hontiveros.
Dantes said that Hontiveros' advocacy of universal healthcare and track record as a legislator make her the candidate of choice for the Filipino family.
"As a family man, health is very important to me. It is high time for us to have leaders who give premium to the Filipino family's well-being. Yan, Zia and I are lucky to have good healthcare, and would like everyone to have the same", Dantes remarked.
"Klaro sa akin na lahat ng ginagawa nya sa kanyang laban para sa kababaihan, sa kabataan at lalung-lalo na sa kalusugan goes beyond just being advocacies kundi panata niya sa kanyang sarili at sa bayan. At nakita ko yun sa kanyang trabaho over the years", says Dantes.
Hontiveros, when she was partylist representative, pushed for the Cheaper Medicines Law.
Dantes finally expressed his hopes this coming May 9.
"Fanboy na nya ako mula nung tumakbo sya nung 2010 and until now, she has 100% of my support. I'm really hoping that the third time's the charm", Dantes concluded.
