Sen. Grace Poe and running mate Sen. Chiz Escudero are set to return to Negros Occidental on April 21, and offer to Negrense voters the programs of action under their "Gobyernong May Puso" campaign platform that centers on eradicating poverty.

The Partido Galing at Puso candidates barnstormed the province last month to thank the people, including local government officials, who threw their support behind their political bid.

Poe and Escudero will lead an early morning motorcade that will pass through Bacolod City, Silay City and throughout Victorias City, where a dialogue with Negrense barangay leaders is scheduled.

In her earlier visit to the province, Poe vowed to build an airport in San Carlos City if she gets the mandate of the people on May 9.

The tandem will then proceed to Puerto Princesa in the afternoon to meet with local officials and supporters. The culmination of the campaign activities in Palawan is a political rally in the evening.

Poe's main campaign theme is premised on declaring an all-out war against poverty, which she described as the cause of most major problems of the country, like the rise in criminality and insurgency.

She vowed to put an end to "endo" or contractualization, which is a system of employment that she described as oppressive and discriminatory.
