The promises of Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III
January 19, 2011
The promises made by Noynoy Aquino from the time he was running as a candidate to the time of his oath taking as 15th president of the Republic of the Philippines was compiled by ang_mungo. The fact that these all came from his own mouth makes it better than those put together by his staff. As of June 27, 2010, there are 24 promises. If you know of a promise that is not included here and have the appropriate reference, you can also email [email protected] so that we can add it.
Aquino said that while he made no judgement about Arroyo’s guilt or otherwise, she should be investigated over a phone call she allegedly made to an election commissioner during the 2004 presidential poll.
“The bottom line is, these allegations of vote manipulation during the 2004 elections have never been settled,” Aquino told AFP in an interview as he awaited official confirmation of his victory in Monday’s election,
Aquino also promised to end corruption in military procurement, reviewing for possible irregularities contracts made by Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s outgoing administration.
“Every peso stolen from the budget of our security organisations represents a drop of blood of our soldiers, airmen, sailors and police officers who risk their lives in the service of our nation,” Aquino said in a speech to diplomats, security officials and foreign journalists.
Liberal Party standard bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III said Friday he will not extend favors to allies and supporters, particularly from big business, even as he vowed to level the playing field during his administration.
“The most they can expect under my presidency is a level playing field. I will not favor anyone. The market will decide if their business grows or not. If they have pending cases, I will not help them. That would be playing favorites,” Aquino said in a radio interview on DZBB.
Leading presidential candidate Benigno S. “Noynoy” Aquino III, in celebration of Earth Day on April 22, 2010, has vowed to make disaster preparedness and the strict enforcement of environmental laws as key objectives of his administration should he be elected.
Greenpeace called on Aquino to live up to his promise made on Earth Day last April, to strictly enforce environmental laws, and Greenpeace added, prioritize policies that will ensure clean energy, clean water and safe food for the country.
Presidential frontrunner Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said last Sunday that the Freedom of Information bill — a landmark piece of legislation that will lift the shroud of secrecy over government transactions and data — will be a priority of his administration.
This was after Congress adjourned sine die last Friday without the bill’s ratification by the House of Representatives due to lack of quorum.
We will transform our systems to foster service to the public instead of making citizens jump through hoops. We will streamline the approval process, not only for setting up new businesses but also in the regular day-to-day transactions with government, such as the payment of taxes. We will do this on a national as well as the local level.
Aquino noted the absurdity of a P50,000-a-month president presiding over a P1.5-trillion annual budget. “What we want is tolead government officials away from temptation because the pay scale they have right now practically guarantees that they will be corrupt,” he said.
Nuclear energy has reemerged as an option to satiate the world’s present and future electricity needs. However, it continues to face “social acceptability” problems because of fears about the safety of its use. There are other sources of energy that have less chances of endangering the lives of people.
In the case of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, it has a large amount of documented safety hazards and may pose a threat to the safety and/or well-being of the residents around it.”
“My administration will fully support the crafting of a firm policy that will address the serious problem on population. It will bebased on the idea of responsible parenthood: imposing on parents that they should play a key role in ensuring that each and every child they bring into this world has the opportunity to lead a good life, and educating them about the means with which to plan their families so they can create families based on their ability to sustain their needs. In the process of providing a range of options and information to couples, both natural family planning and modern methods shall be presented.”
The need for amendments to the Constitution, and whether there’s a public clamor have yet to be determined. I will support the creation of a body to determine these. If the Constitution must be amended, it should be through a constitutional convention.
The current administration more than anything else has shown us that the 1987 Constitution has loopholes that could be abused in order to stay in power. I am in favor of tightening the Constitution against these abuses at the start of the presidential term to avoid suspicion of foul play.
He told members of the Makati Business Club that he would pursue the rationalization of fiscal incentives given to investors as part of efforts to plug revenue leaks and lower the budget deficit.
“We will refrain from imposing new taxes or increasing tax rates,” Aquino told the business forum. “I strongly believe that we can collect more taxes at the BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue) and higher duties at customs if we become more serious in curbing and punishing tax evasion and smuggling.”
Begnino “Noynoy” Aquino, who is on track to become the next president of the Philippines following last Monday’s elections, haspledged investigations will be held into the conduct of the outgoing leader Gloria Arroyo.
“I will not only not steal, but I’ll have the corrupt arrested,” Aquino, 50, told reporters in his first comments since Monday’s polls.
Philippine president apparent, Benigno Aquino III, and nominees to what he pledged would be a lean, graft-free Cabinet promised today to travel overseas less, investigate corruption and renew peace talks on ending decades-long insurgencies.
Speaking before 3,000 doctors, Liberal Party standard bearer Senator Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III vowed today to achieve a “holistic and comprehensive” public healthcare system at the Philippine Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP) Universal Health Care Forum at the Philippine International Convention Center, Pasay City.
“We will go beyond ensuring that each Filipino has a PhilHealth card. Universal Health Care should mean that every PhilHealth cardholder will get not merely the card; but more important, the essential health services, basic medicines and appropriate quality health cards,” said Aquino.
The campaign platforms of President Noynoy Aquino are no longer found in his website during the election period. Even Ms Monsod is having trouble finding the campaign platform of President Benigno “P.Noy” Aquino III…
IT IS a pity that President Aquino’s campaign platform, recorded exhaustively in his website during the election period, is no longer available there. What remains is his campaign slogan, his logo, his picture and a short message thanking us and reminding us that we’re all in this together, and that we, the people, are his strength. A great message, but I sincerely hope that the platform be returned, to serve as a constant reminder, to him and to us, of what he intended to do and how he intended to do it.
