Know Their Stand: Christian Señeres, Senatorial Candidate


christian-seneres-platforms-profile-pictureElections are coming. If you are a voter, you should know who you are voting for and where they stand, especially when it comes to issues of secularism. Here are senatorial candidate Christian Señeress responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health – AGAINST

“It might puzzle some analysts kung bakit isasabatas ‘yang population management and responsible parenthood when society natin is reliant on OFW remittances, services sector, which affects two-thirds of our work force. And yet there comes a law that will reduce one of the factors of economic production that has strengthened us according to foreign analysts. It could be economically detrimental to us.”

 

Sin Tax – AGAINST

“The only thing this will accomplish is a heavier debt burden for the country. We’re being taxed to death. Ang aming ipinaglalaban ay babaan at bawasan ang mga buwis tulad ng VAT.”

 

Cybercrime – AGAINST

“Noon pa sinasabi ng international agencies na itong Pilipinas, isa sa iilang bansa na pwede kang makulong dahil sa sinasabi mo. Tama ba naman ‘yun? Ang pinakaunang maaapektuhan ay nasa media.”

 

Freedom of Information – FOR

“Bigyan ng karapatan na silipin lahat ng pork barrel. Tingnan natin kung hindi mahiya ang mga pulitiko na gumawa ng kalokohan at magpayaman diyan.”

 

Anti-Political Dynasty – FOR

“May eleksyon every three years. ‘Di natin kailangang maghintay ng anti-dynasty law. Huwag na lang iboto.”

 

Divorce – AGAINST

“Meron nang annulment. Divorce is a fault-free dissolution of marriage, kahit walang dahilan — may nakilala siyang mas mayaman, mas bata, o nagkasawaan na sila. Anong mangyayari sa institution of marriage? Magiging cheap.”

 

Death Penalty – NO STAND

“Depende sa mood ng taon. Kung dumadami ang krimen na karumaldumal, eh ‘di sige, ibalik natin. Hindi ko sinasabing chameleon ako ‘pag dating sa isyu na ‘yan. Ang sinasabi ko lang, sundin natin ang batas, maging representative tayo. Kung gusto ng tao, ibalik. Kung ayaw, tanggalin. Obey the people.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage – AGAINST

“I think ‘di na kailangang pakialaman ng state eh. Let’s not enforce a law na dapat pwede sila, pero ‘wag din natin pagbawalan. We can make civil arrangements, pero let’s not redefine what marriage is.”

 

Total Gun Ban – AGAINST

“We are for responsible gun ownership, pero bago mag-total gun ban, siguro unahin nilang tanggalin ‘yung mga baril ng kriminal. And we should protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to own guns.”
