It was also gathered in that interview, Dr.Mikee Romero, 1-Pacman partylist nominee, said that most of the partylists are representing a certain sector in the country, but 1-Pacman partylist is for all sectors in the country primarily to developed and improved the Education and Sports needs of Filipino youths, especially the less fortunate and under privileged in the country and prepare them for future job opportunities. Right now thousands of Filipino youths with potentials for a brighter future, remain untapped and harnessed for nation building, because it lacks adequate support from government in the areas of Education, Sports and Job Generation. This might be the real cause why the number of Jobless Filipino youths are growing yearly Plus the fact that the dangerous drug menace has infiltrated most barangays in the country..
