As GMA News and Public Affairs gears up for its most comprehensive coverage of Eleksyon 2022, some of the country’s biggest stars are taking part in its election advocacy campaign “Dapat Totoo.”
Bea Alonzo, Rhian Ramos, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Andrea Torres, Glaiza de Castro, Barbie Forteza, Bianca Umali, Sanya Lopez, Gabbi Garcia, Khalil Ramos, Ken Chan, Rita Daniela, Derrick Monasterio, Thea Tolentino, Aicelle Santos, and Kapuso Primetime King and Queen Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera have all committed their support to this advocacy that promotes the very core value that voters, political aspirants, and news organizations must equally share: truthfulness in mind, in heart, and in actions.
While we are all different from one another — we come from different parts of the country, we speak different languages and dialects, we all come from different walks of life, and yes, we wear different political colors — the “Dapat Totoo” campaign reminds us that we all share the same dream: to live a decent life and give the next generation a better future.
Officially announced during GMA Network’s Eleksyon 2022 Partnerships Launch last November 26, ‘Dapat Totoo’ advocates for everyone – the candidates, the voters, and the journalists – to share in the responsibility for fair and wise decision-making during the elections.
For Dingdong and Marian, taking part in the Kapuso Network’s election advocacy campaign is very important.
“Para sa amin, very personal ito. Mahalagang-mahalaga ang paparating na eleksyon natin dahil ang talagang magbe-benefit dito ay yung susunod na generations,” says Dingdong.
Marian shares, “Dapat talaga isipin nating mabuti kung paano at sino ang karapat-dapat nating iboto… sabi nga nila sa isip, sa salita, at sa gawa, Dapat Tototo!”
Meanwhile, as a new Kapuso, Bea is excited to be part of this campaign.
“It feels good and I’m so happy that GMA is actually doing this. They’re being proactive ngayong election dahil sa tingin ko may responsibilidad tayo na i-encourage ang bawat Pilipino bilang mga botante na magkaroon ng well-informed decision sa May 9,” she says.
“Maganda na ine-encourage natin ang bawat botante na maging totoo sa kanilang sarili, maging totoo sa pagdedesisyon nila, maging totoo para sa ating bansa.”
GMA News and Public Affairs believes that if the candidates, voters, and news organizations are aligned in advocating the truth, it could lead to electing competent leaders that will improve the lives of the Filipinos.
Expect the best from GMA Network in delivering the widest and most comprehensive coverage of Eleksyon 2022 across all platforms together with its 51 partners from the fields of telecommunications, media, education, business, law, and public service.
