Daniel Padilla speaks up on netizens clashing over the elections
050116-Daniel_up.jpgAmid the intense mudslinging between netizens over their respective candidates, Daniel Padilla calls for people to “think before they act.”

Daniel, who has been the subject of mudslinging himself, during a conference for presidential candidate Mar Roxas, recognizes that everyone has their own opinions. 

“Siyempre hindi naman pare-pareho tayong lahat kung papaano tayo mag-isip pero before tayo mag-act or may sabihin, make sure na alam natin ang sinasabi natin,” he said. 

The Teen King pointed out that “Wag tayong masyadong matapang” because and that people should “Make sure na alam rin natin at kaya nating i-back up ang sinasabi natin. Hindi naman tayo pwedeng salita ng salita eh hindi mo naman alam ang nangyayari sa eleksyon.

Daniel added that the debates are best for people who are actually out to vote.

“Marami kasing nagmamagaling sa eleksyon, eh hindi naman botante diba. So shut up ka. Hindi ka naman botante eh. Sa lahat nalang ng bumoboto ang gusto ko lang sabihin is maging open-minded sa nangyayari at alamin ang nangyayari ngayong eleksyon. Kilalanin natin ang susuportahan natin kung sino man,” he added.

Meanwhile, as a first-time voter, Daniel himself understands that some young people are still apathetic over the national elections.

“Kasi para sakin ang politics is maturity rin. Hindi mo naman pwedeng ipasok ang mga bata na hindi pa fully-matured tapos papasok sa pulitika, I mean sa pagboto,” he started.

“Siyempre hindi pa nila gamay ‘yun. Darating rin naman sa kahit na sinong tao ang panahon na talagang gusto na nilang bumoto. So ‘wag nating i-ano, lahat naman magiging interesado, I’m very sure,” he ended.
