Vice presidential candidate Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano said he and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will only push for doable and practical reforms for the country as they start their campaign in the next few days.

Cayetano said the public can expect ‘no big promises’ coming from the Duterte-Cayetano tandem in contrast to their rivals, as they both acknowledge that it takes years before change takes effect immediately.

Duterte is running for president in the upcoming May 2016 elections with Cayetano as his running mate.

For instance, while others claim to have a solution to the perennial traffic problem and mass transportation woes, theirs is a platform that is enforceable as their tandem is anchored on “Tunay na Pagbabago” or “Real Change” with peace and order, economics and respect for law the three priority issues they are facing.

“The edge that Mayor Duterte has among all the other candidates is naniniwala ang tao na kayang gawin ito,” Cayetano said in a press conference in Taguig City.

“That’s why he instructed me and the whole team let’s not over promise like the issue on traffic. Hindi kaya overnight yan, hindi kayang 100 days yan,” he pointed out.

“Let’s not draw up a platform na masabi na lahat ng sektor kasali ako dyan pero pag kwenenta mo naman hindi naman kaya. Kaya any salary increase, any form of taxation that we want to change, not only will experts be involved, we’ll make sure it’s doable,” the senator stressed.

On Thursday, Cayetano said he and the mayor will start “testing the waters” as they seek to elevate their campaign.

From attending private meetings, they will start to attend events to town hall meetings starting this week.

    We never expected anything from a murderer. What can a Do-Dirty Mayor do with economics. NOTHING. Like Binay, their understanding of economics is getting hand-outs from the OFW. So they can send more Filipinos out of the country to suffer as OFW instead of prepping up the economy from within to help them here . Do-Dirty the only one and Cayatano does not understand what is going in the world. Drugs and drug lords will always be a menace to society. NOT EVEN AMERICA CAN STOP IT. Not Europe, not Mexico, not Columbia, not even China, or Japan or Korea. He can BULLSHIT some of you, but he cannot bullshit all of us, with his tough approach. Do-Dirty id is more chicken than chicken shit. He will only bring miseries to the majority of the people. RO – RO 2016 is the true answer to continue the progress the Aquino administration already put into motion.
