Alfredo Lim’s guiding principle is the "rule of law" and he aims to introduce "order and discipline" and "restore peace and stability," as he has done in Manila. His program of government includes "social justice for the masses" and frees college education. His vision is a "country where our families can live in safety and peace, where our businesses can thrive and create jobs, where every citizen can make an honest living."

Lim also emphasizes the need to deal effectively with the current financial crisis, to improve economic management, and upgrade agriculture, education, social services and the environment. He claims to "believe in limited government, in a government that focuses in doing well what government alone can do -- administration of justice, law and order, public health, etc.". He elaborates that providing the framework and leadership for an equity-led growth, asset reform and a stable set of policies can inspire private sector participation.
