Duterte pushes #MaBaGoKoTo


As the official campaign period goes into full swing, no less than President Rodrigo Duterte expressed his full support to five Senate hopefuls for the 2019 midterm elections come 13 May.

The President previously said that he will back the candidacy of the administration bets composed of former Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Ronald dela Rosa, former political adviser Francis Tolentino, Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III and Maguindanao Representative Zajid Mangudadatu.

The five complete the slate of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and with a little play of words, they are now dubbed as “MaBaGoKoTo,” which can be translated to “I can change this.”

This echoes the “Change is coming” slogan of President Duterte during the presidential campaign.
