For the life of me, Yorme Isko Moreno reiterated his rhetoric that he will not vote for anybody who is only inheriting a position.
That’s what he said when asked during the News5 program hosted by Ted Failon and DJ Chacha why he left the NUP (National Unity Party) and jumped ship to Aksyon Demokratiko.
For context, the NUP has expressed the willingness to support the candidacy of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte in the event she run for President.
On that note, the Luminous (Attys. Trixie and a “certain” Ahmed) remarked that since he just regurgitated what he said previously, they found it convenient to simply reiterate their previous rebuttal.
Dahil inulit na lang niya itong retorikang ito, siguro dapat ulitin din natin ang sagot.
Here’s the response of Attys. Trixie and Ahmed on Yorme Isko’s statement regarding elected position being inherited.
Hindi po namamana ang posisyon sa gobyerno. May eleksyon po tayo kung saan nakikilahok ang lahat. Kahit mapili si Inday Sara ng kanyang mga kapartido at kapanalig, ELEKSYON PA RIN at BOTO ng taong bayan ang magiging dahilan sa kanyang pag upo, sakaling magwagi sa paligsahan.
The Luminous advised Yorme Isko to refrain from using such rhetoric to avoid getting labeled as “fake news” purveyor.
Iwasan po sana ang ganitong klaseng retorika at baka masampa sa “fake news” yan.
Netizens did waste a second to criticize Yorme Isko’s statement.
One netizen called this one of the dumbest of Yorme’s statements.
“Isa na yata yan sa pinakabobong statement ni Yorme. Wala naman sa monarchy ang Pinas para magmana lang ng posisyon. Eleksyon pa rin tayo at taong bayan ang magpapasya. Kahit pa buong pamilya Duterte tumakbo kung hindi naman iboboto eh di wala din. Tolongges ka talaga habang natagal.”
To which another netizen replied: “you nailed it .pinakastupid na statement ng isang bitter na naghahangad.”
If the position (elected) is inherited, then having an election is pointless? A netizen asked.
“kung namamana pla ang posisyon mayor tolongges di wala n sanang eleksyon,gusto kong angkan na lng ni PRRD forever ang mamuno kesa sa mga wannabe na kiyaw kiyaw db?“
“tumpak, wag ng mag election, ipamana na lang ng Pangulo kay daughter kung ganun, total majority nman Duterte ” borrowing Yorme Isko’s logic, a netizen commented to agree with the above commenter.
“I wonder how he came up with namamana ang pwesto? The president is not like a king that will be passed on to a prince. We vote for the next president and whoever we think should be the next president is for us to decide contrary to what he is saying,” chimed in another netizen.
