Social Welfare Secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman has been reminding partner-beneficiaries that they are free to decide, choose and express their beliefs and rights on issues concerning their lives and their communities.

“Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiaries are empowered individuals and are aware of their rights as citizens of this country. They are free to choose someone whom they believe epitomizes their principles,” Soliman earlier said.

“During the Family Development Sessions, we tell them about active citizenship and voting according to their conscience. But we never impose on them to vote for a certain political personality,” Soliman stressed. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
