PROMISE: Scrap GMA's flagship programs

LIBERAL Party candidate Senator Benigno Aquino III on Thursday vowed to scrap President Gloria Arroyo’s flagship programs if he is elected President.

“Perhaps I’m being unchristian, but practically all her programs have to be scrutinized,” Aquino declared during a Davao sortie.

He said a review of the projects and programs under President Arroyo’s watch was part of the “zero-budgeting” policy he would implement as President.

Instead of replacing those flagship programs, Aquino wanted the budget realigned to job creation, education and basic social services.

STATUS: Pending.
