BALANGA CITY — The first partylist from Bataan, Pusong Pinoy, that seeks congressional seat in the May 9, 2022 elections has for its primary advocacy the health protection of all, especially those in the lower sector of society in the country.
Jett Nisay, partylist first nominee, said on Friday that once given the chance they will craft more laws focused on health programs and the eradication of poverty.
“Ang malaking problema hindi lamang ng pamilyang Bataeño ay kapag mayroong nagkakasakit kaya pipilitin naming makagawa ng marami pang programa at polisiya na may kinalaman sa kalusugan at pipilitin naming makapagbigay ng mabilis at epektibong social services sa lahat,” Nisay said.
He said that public service is not new to him having been a barangay chairman and a member of the sangguniang panglungsod in Balanga City. Later, Nisay served in the office of 2nd District Rep. Jose Enrique Garcia III.
While in the office of Congressman Garcia, Nisay said he observed that the number of those seeking medical assistance during the pandemic tripled.
“Upang mapagbigyan ang lahat ng lumalapit para sa medical assistance, kailangang maghanap pa sa kung saan-saang partner agencies, sa mga senador tulad ni Senator Bong Go, kay Presidente Duterte kaya naisipan naming ang aming partylist ay mag-focus sa problema sa kalusugan na pangunahing problema sa buong Pilipinas,” he said.
