BACOLOD CITY, May 20 (PNA) — The election is over and it is now time for the new set of public servants to unite for the common good of the people, said Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra.
“If they belong to different political parties, they should set aside partisan politics and work together,” Navarra reiterated.
The bishop, who has been very vocal in campaigning against the senatorial candidates supporting the reproductive health law, added that elected politicians should focus more in uplifting the lives of poor Filipinos and not their personal interests.
Navarra also called for the new leaders and lawmakers of this country to work closely with the Church, especially in educating the poor.
Meanwhile, Navarra said he is happy of the results of the senatorial elections even if not all candidates endorsed by the Church won.
The Diocese of Bacolod under Navarra has endorsed JV Ejercito Estrada, Gregorio Honasan, Koko Pimentel, Antonio Trillanes, Mitos Magsaysay and Cynthia Villar. Of the six, only Magsaysay failed to make it to the “Magic 12”. (PNA)
