We asked our Cosmo Facebook followers to comment on this photo album to find out who they’re voting for during the Presidential Elections on May 9, 2016. These are 15 of the hundreds of answers we received from readers voting for former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.  


“Continuity is important. Roxas’ platform builds on the good that the Aquino administration has started—and Mar will capitalize on the momentum we are enjoying right now. As an experienced banker and economist with a solid track record in clean and genuine public service, he is the best option among the candidates.” - Redg de Vera

***

“Mar is decent, has the most experience in national-level work, and has made a lot of contributions in the government that truly are beneficial to the people.” - Majo Viray

***

"I will vote for Mar as he has the clearest understanding of governance. He's not corrupt and can build on the gains of current projects, while making improvements on some of the things that the current administration wasn't able to complete. He is not one who kowtows to the whims of the masses just to be popular. Sometimes the best results come from the most unpopular decisions." - Loida Torio

***

"Let's face it: None of our past presidents—even PNoy—were ideal leaders. I am voting for Mar not because he is the perfect guy for that position. I believe that he is ready for this, and he has the capacity to govern a country. Yes, he is not perfect, but he is capable." - Patricia Bayot

***

“He is the most competent, the most capable, and the only patriot among the lot.” - Ben Entico

***

"I will vote for Mar Roxas in order to have continuity in governance. Having a new president not allied with the current administration will drastically alter the current programs of the government. I am not saying PNoy's government is excellent. He had plenty of unfulfilled promises, but there are good programs to  be continued—and Mar should continue the good ones and improve on the others." - Noorah Jones

***

“I will vote for Mar Roxas because I saw how the economy of the country grew during PNoy’s administration. If Mar wins, he will continue that.” - Almira Celeste Saavedra Mariano

***

“Mar is the only presidential candidate who genuinely loves his country. He is the kind of public servant who will work for the better despite being ridiculed. Marangal na tao at hindi magnanakaw. - Melchaire Joy Javier Ricafort

***

“I’ll vote for Mar because he is not corrupt, and I know he’ll create more jobs for us Filipinos. More jobs, less poverty, less crimes.” - Debz Leona

***

“I will vote for Mar, because he has the most extensive experience in governance. I can’t entrust it to people with a bent sense of justice.” - Karl Lee CK

Kaya ko iboboto si Mar para tuluy-tuloy na ang naumpisahan [ni President Noynoy Aquino]. Naniniwala naman ako na malaki and nabago ng Pilipinas lalo na kung pag-uusapan ang economic growth. Ayaw ko umasa sa mga panatang imposible. Sayang ang six years kung itatapon ulit. - Velcie Felipe

***

“He is decent, knows the ins and outs of the executive branch, and has the most experience in terms of leadership. He loves his country and is not running for personal ambition. The country will be in the best hands with Mar, and he will deliver more than PNoy ever can.” - Jenny Linares

***

“Our country is so desperate for change that we want it to be drastic and instant. But I still believe in a diplomatic way of working things out. Change can take place if we do our part. Tulong tulong dapat, ‘wag turo turo at sumabatan.” - Jecca Shatalene Neri

***

“I am for Mar Roxas, because I know he’s the best. He is capable, able, and can motivate people to be successful.” - Deanna Santiago Lim

***

“There is no one person who can solve all or majority of the problems, issues, and concerns the Filipinos. But I choose Mar Roxas, because I believe he has the competency, experience, and integrity which this position requires. His platform does not have incredible promises, but he is a strategic manager. I believe Mar can bring balance and progress where they are most needed.” - Fidelita Deguzman
