Roque in ‘Magic 12’ for 2nd time in Tangere–Bulletin survey

Harry Roque - Presidential Spokesperson

UniTeam senatorial aspirant and former presidential spokesman Harry Roque landed anew in the winning circle of the Tangere–Manila Bulletin senatorial survey.

The former presidential spokesperson placed 12th in the survey conducted from February 25 to 27 this year with a voter preference of 20.3 percent. Roque was also in the ‘Magic 12’ in the survey from January 26 to 29 this year.

According to the Manila Bulletin and Tangere, the February survey was conducted among 2,400 mobile application users across the nation.

Roque said he was encouraged by the latest poll survey results and attributed his high rating to his intense nationwide campaigning with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte through the “Mahalin Natin ang Pilipinas” caravan.

“My deepest thanks to our unwavering supporters for believing in our platform on health care, job creation, right to food and potable water, and justice system reforms,” Roque said.

The former party-list representative in the House of Representatives also thanked UniTeam party standard-bearer Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. and running mate Sara Duterte for their solid support during the campaign season.

“Despite the absence of television and radio advertisements since February 8, we still made it to the magic 12,” said Roque, who principally authored the Universal Health Care act.

Roque expressed the hope that his survey rating would further improve once his new tri-media ad with Mayor Duterte is aired in public.

Roque praised Duterte for being a ‘thinking and feeling’ local chief executive who understands how the law operates to advance the greater good of her constituents.

He said the nation’s top two positions need persons with an extensive local government track record.

“The brave and caring Mayor Duterte can leverage her nine years of executive experience to respond to the Filipinos’ needs and aspirations on a national scale,” Roque said.

Roque authored the Universal Health Care law, which has enabled the government’s Covid-19 vaccination program and free PCR test for medical frontliners.

He was the principal proponent of the National Aids Law, which provides free HIV medication and lowers HIV-testing consent to 15 years old.

Roque was also the principal author of the free irrigation for farmers, free tuition in state colleges and universities, free wi-fi in public places, and free lunch for elementary pupils.
