DFA Secretary Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. couldn’t conceal his mistrust in the wake of got notification from UN authorities that previous DILG Secretary Mar Roxas has worked to perfection in dealing with the Yolanda alleviation work. He expelled their cases and invalidated that if Roxas truly worked superbly, he should’ve won the presidential elections, however he lost. Furthermore, he lost severely.
In a post he shared on Twitter, the foreign affairs chief described that amid his first UN meeting, authorities from the UN lauded Roxas for taking care of the Yolanda circumstance genuinely well.
The authorities included that it was not Roxas but rather the common society and the multilateral guide organizations who got remote gifts.
“In fact, United Nations (UN) officials said at my first UN conference that Yolanda relief was well done by Mar but f***** up by civil society and multilateral busybodies from abroad all grabbing,” Locsin tweeted.
“I said, ‘Well done?’ Now you say ‘Well done?’ He f****** lost the election,” he added.
He couldn’t believe what he just heard and rebutted that Roxas lost the elections, which is a clear proof that the people don’t trust him and his handling of the Yolanda situation. His monumental mismanagement of the Yolanda relief operation caused his downfall in the 2016 elections.
Rise And Fall Of Mar Roxas
There was a time when Mar Roxas was seen as the apparent heir to the presidential throne. In 2004, he topped the senatorial elections with a vote of over 19 million, however, instead of focusing on serving the people, he focused on his political ambition, and caused his downfall. He lost the Vice President race to Jejomar Binay in 2010, and wounded up a very far second to Rodrigo Duterte in the 2016 presidential race.
He was the Interior secretary when the Yolanda tragedy happened. He faced a lot of criticisms on his mishandling of the Yolanda situation, especially in the rebuilding and rehabilitation of affected areas. A 2015 report by COA stated that the DILG did not achieve the desired level of preparedness needed for the Yolanda relief work.
A Senate Seat
Amid the Yolanda issue, Mar Roxas is eyeing a seat in the Senate in the coming 2019 elections. He has vehemently denied any wrongdoing in the Yolanda situation and maintained his innocence on the criticisms hurled against him. Let the voters decide.
