What if Poe loses? Chiz reacts

ABS-CBN News

Vice-presidential candidate and Senator Francis ''Chiz'' Escudero on Sunday guaranteed that he would give the same dedication if he is elected even if his running mate, Senator Grace Poe, loses.

During ABS-CBN's "Harapan ng Bise" on Sunday, Escudero said their duo chose white as their campaign color as a symbol of their belief that public service should not be limited by political alliances.

"Walang kulay pulitika dapat sa serbisyong-publiko. Dahil ang kahirapan, wala iyang pinipiling kulay. Ang pangangailangan at kalamidad, wala rin po iyang pinipili, kakilala man o hindi," he said.

He added that while he has full belief in the ideals of Poe, he will perform his duty even if she fails to win the country's highest seat.

"Layunin po naming tiyakin na sa serbisyo-pubiko, pareho naman ang aking gagawin, sino man ang naroon, ano man ang opisina. Papasok ako ng maaga, tatapusin ko ang trabahong takda, uunahin ko ang interes ng nakararami," he said.

"At kailanman, hindi ko po kayo pagnanakawan."
