‘Youth vote can spell leadership change’
by Mary Joy Ildefonso

The youth is a voice to reckon with in the May 13 midterm national elections, National Youth Commission (NYC) officials said.

Malaki ang role ng kabataang Pilipino dahil kung gusto mong baguhin ang bansa kayang-kaya mong simulan yan sa pagbabago ng leaders ng bansa,” NYC Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer Ronald Gian Cardema said during the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) national convention in Baguio.

“The Filipino youth are the biggest voting block and will play a big role in choosing leaders in our country,” he said.

Cardema said 24 million voters are young professionals, aged 18 years to 30 years.

Kaya ng kabataang Pilipinong magpanalo ng mga senador, at dapat lang ‘wag niyong ibenta ang inyong boto,” he said, adding that those elected in public offices have an important role in forging the future of every Filipino.

An election is an exercise of a right, Cardema said, urging the youth to go out and vote on May 13.

“The youth should vote to show that they are part of the change in the leadership of the country,” he said.

Asec. Victor del Rosario, NYC commissioner representing the Visayas, said every vote counts so the electorate should exercise their right of suffrage.

“One vote is very powerful. You should not waste your vote because it can make a difference,” he said.

Del Rosario said the youth must have criteria in choosing which candidate to vote for.

“The youth should consider the competence and records of the candidates, which includes having no record of corruption,” he said.

“We are discouraging the young people from voting for candidates who have a corruption or any pending case,” del Rosario added.
