Video: #blogwatch livestream with @TingCojuangco

Tingting Cojuangco says if she wins in the coming elections, she will serve as the broomstick (walis tingting) in the Senate that would wipe out all of the country’s dirt.

Cojuangco said UNA also wanted to embrace the “Tuwid na Daan” (straight path), advocacy of the administration.

If elected, Margarita “Tingting” Cojuangco said she will put focus on public safety, the environment, agriculture and housing for the poor.

She will also propose to make Barangay Health Workers (BHW) regular government employees and review the criminal justice system so that jail inmates, particularly the women, do not have to spend more time behind bars than the sentence imposed by the court.

“I’m talking about this as a mother,” she said, citing risks on the road and at home due to fire.

In ensuring public safety, she raised the need for regular checks on the seaworthiness of passengers ships, and improving fire prevention measures, as well as disaster preparedness and management.

She also cited the need to improve national defense, and the possibility of tapping nuclear development.

“Ten years ago, I would have said no…but now. I’d like to think more about that (nuclear development),” Cojuangco said. But she added that nuclear development should involve weighing defense implications with the environmental risks.
