Netizens Slam Philip Salvador after Announcing Senate Run

Philip Salvador, a well-known actor in the Philippines, recently announced his intention to run for senator in the upcoming elections. However, instead of receiving a warm welcome, he was met with criticism from netizens, particularly regarding his perceived shortcomings in serving his child.

One netizen took to social media and criticized Salvador, pointing out his alleged neglect of his son with Kris Aquino, Josh. The comment highlighted a perceived irony in Salvador’s aspiration to serve the public when he seemingly failed to fulfill his duties to his child.

“Serbisyo? Yung anak mo nga kay Kris di mo naserbisyuhan eh, yung mga di mo kaano ano pa kaya???”

Salvador’s candidacy was endorsed by the camp of former President Duterte, adding fuel to the controversy. Despite the endorsement and assurances of effective public service, some members of the public remain skeptical, citing Salvador’s personal affairs as a cause for concern.

The early endorsement of Salvador by the political party PDP-Laban raised eyebrows, prompting questions about the party’s motives and the potential impact on public perception. With the elections still a considerable time away, the premature endorsement may backfire if not carefully managed.

Meanwhile, the Duterte family faces its challenges, with issues arising between Sara Duterte, the daughter of former President Rodrigo Duterte, and Liza Marcos, the first lady. Calls for Sara Duterte to resign from her position as Secretary of the Department of Education (DepEd) have intensified amidst controversies surrounding confidential funds, ghost scholars, and excessive spending within a short period.

The convergence of these controversies underscores the need for discernment among the electorate. The endorsement of Salvador, coupled with calls for Sara Duterte’s resignation, presents a complex landscape that demands careful consideration from voters.

As the political landscape evolves, it remains uncertain how these developments will shape public opinion and influence the outcome of the elections. However, one thing is clear: the Filipino electorate must exercise critical thinking and prudence in evaluating candidates and their platforms. In a democracy, the power lies with the people, and they must make informed decisions for the betterment of the nation.
