MANILA, Philippines — Actress Susan Roces cast her vote Monday at Xavier School in San Juan.
Roces is the mother of reelectionist Senator Grace Poe.
“Buti na yung maaga, hindi pa siksikan,” Roces said during a chance interview with reporters after she cast her vote.
When asked about her expectation on the elections’ results, Roces said: “Walang katiyakan. Lahat naman aktibong nangampanya kaya let’s just wish for the best.”
Roces also appealed to the public to use their right to vote.
“Mga kababayan, gamitin ang karapatan para ihalal ang mga inaakala nila na makakapagsilbi nang maayos sa ating bayan,” Roces said.
The latest pre-election polls survey by Pulse Asia showed Poe on second to third place with 47.7 percent voter preference, trailing behind reelectionist Senator Cynthia Villar who had 55.9 percent voter preference. (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
