NEW PHILIPINES PRESIDENT, AQUINO PLEADGED TO FIGHT CORRUPTION

Presidential front-runner Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III rejoices with supporters after attending a news conference in the Tarlac province, in northern Philippines, on Tuesday. Aquino was poised for a decisive victory in elections in the Philippines despite technical problems which caused long delays, but did not derail the polls as feared.
Manila: Benigno Aquino, who is on the verge of becoming the new Philippines president, yesterday pledged to fight corruption and bring in clean governance.
The 50-year-old senator said he would lead by example, but added that it would take more than a six-year term to bring about the social transformation of the Philippines.
  • Aquino thanked the people as he continued to widen his lead over his nearest rival Joseph Estrada by snatching more than 40 per cent of the votes cast in the country's first automated polls.
  • "It's clear that I have a significant lead over the next contender in the presidential race. I'm grateful to the Filipino people for the support and to our loyal supporters in our people's campaign who made this achievement possible," Aquino said.
  • He also called for honest and fair counting of ballots for his beleaguered running-mate Senator Manuel Mar Roxas, who was fighting a close battle against Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay.
In an AFP interview, Aquino also said that once in office he would ensure that President Gloria Arroyo is investigated for alleged vote-rigging in the last election in 2004.
