SIBLING RIVALRY

Estrada sons disagree on LP-UNA ‘super’ coalition

It would seem the sibling rivalry in the multifamily household of deposed President and convicted plunderer Joseph Estrada is being played out in the early positioning for the 2013 elections.

Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada on Tuesday shot down the idea of a “super coalition” between the administration Liberal Party and the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) famously proposed by his half-brother, San Juan Representative Jose Victor Ejercito.

“It is highly impossible. Think about the check and balance in case only one ticket wins. The Senate would lose its credibility in acting as a fiscalizer,” said Jinggoy, the Senate president pro tempore who is the deposed President’s son by his wife, Loi.

Ejercito, Estrada’s son by San Juan Mayor Guia Gomez, floated the idea of a single senatorial ticket that would include LP and UNA candidates for the 2013 elections.

His argument was that since there was uncommon amity between the Aquino administration and the opposition, it would be “ideal” to simply create a super coalition between the LP and UNA.

The proposal was rebuffed by Malacañang and LP leaders.

Jinggoy insisted that there were no ongoing “backroom talks” between the ruling LP and UNA, the coalesced parties of his father’s Partido ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) and Vice President Jejomar Binay.

However, the elder Estrada on Tuesday appeared to come down on the side of Ejercito, making a pitch for the  latter’s “super coalition” which he said would save senatorial candidates a lot of money.

“This is just a proposal, an idea for the good of the country, not for anything else. It’s not a sign of weakness,” Estrada said.

But if the invitation is not accepted by the LP, Estrada said the UNA, already a big coalition by itself, would  “fight it out” with the administration ticket.

Estrada said the alliance could also be limited to the midterm elections. “Right after the elections, we could go our separate ways. We could go back to our respective parties,” he said in Filipino.

Sources said UNA leaders were shocked at the Ejercito proposal.

“Vice President (Jejomar) Binay found himself in a very awkward position after Ejercito’s announcement of a super coalition. But since the congressman is an ally, Binay has no choice but to support the position,” an UNA source disclosed.

“The statement came as a surprise since the congressman had no authority to speak about that. The idea is just like the Binay-Jinggoy tandem being floated last week. There is absolutely no basis,” the source added.

Other senators from both the opposition and administration sides also sounded pessimistic over the super coalition idea.

Senator Franklin Drilon (LP) cited the awkwardness of a senatorial candidate straddling or supporting both administration and opposition platforms during election time.

Senator Francis Pangilinan, another LP leader, said whoever is behind the super coalition proposal must remember not to include an opposition candidate who is vocal about his criticism  of President Benigno Aquino’s programs.

Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. noted that with the number of aspirant senators, the 12 slots of a theoretical LP-UNA coalition would be unrealistic.

“With five incumbent reelectionists, there are only seven slots left for incoming senators. The number of declared candidates is higher so this is not doable since you cannot make those who declared back out at this point,” Marcos said.

Jinggoy said it was still important for the administration candidates to face off with opponents from a rival group in 2013. With Cynthia D. Balana

    Ang aga-aga pinapakita na ni Jayvee Ejercito ang katangahan niya. Ang buong akala nya e puwedeng maghalo ang langis at tubig. Kung walang kaugnayan itong Ejercito na ito sa mga Estrada, baka di pa manalo na barangay captain.

    At any rate, let’s junk the UNA in the coming elections. Ito ang tambakan ng mga taong walang pagmamalasakit sa bayan, na ang iniisip lang e sarili umpisa kay Binay. .

  • filipinaskoh

    owwwww!!!
    Nanghihingalo na kasi ang UNA, kaya kailangan na nya ng kabalikat.
    Paano naman si Roxas at si Binay, not possible na magkaroon ng merging. Ayaw ni Roxas, at mas lalong ayaw din ni Binay, syempre, ang tindi kaya ng pangarap, nagpaUNAng nangampanya.

    Bulok kasi mga candidate ng UNA kaya:
    UNA din silang matatalo
    UNA din silang susuko
    UNA sila sa mga kulelat
    UNA sila sa hulihan

    Bakit naman kasi UNA pa ang napili nyong pangalan masyadong related kay “pandak”, UNAno.
    Bakit di na lang “ANO” o di kaya’y “NUNAL” mas maganda pa iyan kung “PUNA” .

        nakipagmerge lang si bong-bong sa NP, not necessary kasama din sya sa merging “kung sakaling magmerge nga”.
        Sa UNA, sino ba ang nandun si ERAP- plunder case din sya, jueteng “god” pa nga. Si Enrile number one corrupt at balimbing- napabango lang ang pangalan dahil sa impeachment but just in case nag “not guilty” vote sya ewan ko kung mabango pa sya. Ung Anak nya sooooooo much…. Si Mitos magsawsaw na super sispsip at walang magawa kundi sumawsaw. Si Zubiri na dagdag-bawas. Itong si JV ejercito hay! naku mga pamiltang corrupt.

  • valentinlbonite

    Enough of the subterfuge, all UNA wants is to ensure the Binay presidency on 2016.  They now realize, belatedly, that accommodating GMA loyalists and assorted P-Noy critics in their coalition was wrong and that they cannot anymore find any suitable excuse to exclude them, unless they coalesce with LP itself.  Binay tol, that’s what you get when you start your politics early.

      That’s totally correct. Imagine our kababayans idolize Dolphy who has 17 children out of wedlock, Ramon Revilla Sr who has 70 children from different women, Erap who has several children outside of his legal family, etc. And to think that we are the only Catholic country in Asia. 

      The catholic priests are not condemning these 3 key personalities in our society maybe for fear of incurring the ire of Filipinos thus scared of losing more faithful in attending masses?

      Come on guys, the clergy must condemn these 3 personalities for not following the teachings of the Lord. At para hindi pamarisan ng mga Pilipino!

    This only shows that UNA wants to get rid of scrupulous candidates in a subtle manner like Mitos   Magsaysay, Ernie Maceda, Kit Tatad and the worst of them all Migz Zubiri. Binay and his group want to find a way out of the mess that they are currently into. Senator Koko Pimentel made the best decision of his political career in choosing the right path. Senator Koko will surely land in the top 5 of the 2013 senatorial election. Count on it!

    • JK1000

      Ernie Maceda, Kit Tatad ? Itong dalawang ito ay mga alipores ni Marcos noon at ngayon mga tuta ni Juan Ponce Enrile. Yung anak ni Enrile, na si Jack Enrile ay isa din maraming nagawang kasalanan noon panahon ni Marcos ( Remember  Actor Alfie Anido ? na pinatay siya ) pero hindi nakulong noon dahil sa Tatay niya. Si Bongbong Marcos nga ay takot daw noon kay Jack Enrile dahil alam niya ang mga biktima ng anak ni Enrile.

      • PasswordFlame

         yung sinabi mong takot daw,that is HEARSAY.wag kayung magawa nang sturya na walang katutuhanan.kung dimo alam wagkang mag kwento.diyan maganda sa ibang tao na mababa ang pagiisip.tapos ipasa nanaman yang balita na galing sa kanto.pls.wag yung HEARSAY..old style nayan.think twice.dre

      • wakats

        I agree. Yung “takot daw,” it’s really hearsay pero yung suspected killer ni alfie noong Dec. 30, 1981, ay medyo credible.  Search at wikipedia on the life of Alfie Anido and you’ll see the alleged involvement of jackie on the death of Alfie.

        Kung totoo yon, jackie is really like his father who, in 1972, became the main actor on a “staged ambush” of himself that justify the declaration of martial law by marcos. Johnny was also the main supporter of gringo during his 9 coup attempts on the 6-year Cory presidency.

        I will not vote for jackie and will convince others who don’t know jackie’s background. 

      • JK1000

        Pati yung sa pagpatay kay Lean Alejandro at KMU Chair Rolando Olalia mga R.A.M. nina Enrile at Honasan ang main suspects dun.

  • Gallimaufries

    It’s possible that UNA is starting to realize that its “powerhouse senatorial line-up,”  so boastfully announced before, is not that hot after all, now that you have Escudero, Pimentel, Legarda and possibly even Honassan, all their “pambato,” walking away, headed straight to the LP side, and UNA is left with the likes of Magsaysay (the fake one), De Venecia III (na naman?) and septuagenarians Maceda and Tadad (whose idols were Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, Joni James, etc.).  Maybe, UNA doesn’t have the funds to spare for 2013 (kailangan mag-tipid for 2016).  Perhaps also, JV’s announcement had been pre-cleared, as a “trial balloon,” except that it got an immediate rebuff from Lacierda (pwede sila ni Abigail – no, not as illicit sweethearts but for senator in 2016; ok ang dating nilang dalawa, unlike si Carandang). Eh, para sa akin, UNA shouldn’t be concerned about the winnability of all its 2013 senatorial candidates.  Citing the Pulse-Asia survey results that said: 7 out of 10, or 73%, would vote for candidates endorsed by Binay, and 5 out of 10, or 51%, would in turn vote for those supported by Erap, the latter remarked that “combining Binay’s endorsement with mine, 124% ang boboto sa UNA’s line-up!”  Imagine, sobra pa sa 100%!  Was that an Erap Joke?  In fairness to him, that’s how I understood it too. So, we’re both stupid. Or the survey was.

  • wakats

    It is expected of jinggoy to oppose the super coalition idea of his “hilaw na kapatid,” since it will jeopardize his 2016 vice-presidential bid.

    It is not, however, proper for senator jinggoy to say that “The senate would lose its credibility in acting as a fiscalizer.” 

    The people did not elect their senators to simply fiscalize the administration. The senators are expected to legislate and deliberate on the passage of a law, act as a judge during impeachment trial, conduct committee hearings on matters of national interest, etc. Jinggoy’s knowledge of  the job description of a senator must be very limited.

    JV Ejercito’s statement is actually a winning proposition for a losing administration. It is one idea that could can only be conjured by from someone who comes from a position of strength. The man obviously expressed only the best of intentions to save this country from further waste of time, money and other resources that the 2013 elections will bring about. To be bold and dare go beyond partisanship for the country’s unity and development is the mark of a true statesman. Thumbs up for this statement. He actually makes a lot more sense than his brother’s statement about check and balance. But I don’t believe just because one brother thinks otherwise, a sibling rivalry is being played out – that’s media (or the writer) looking for an angle in a story. Just saying…

    “This is just a proposal, an idea for the good of the country, not for anything else. It’s not a sign of weakness,” Sen. Jinggoy Estrada said.
    Si Sen. Jinggoy Estrada na rin ang nagsabi na ang suggestion ni Cong. JV Ejercito ay for ‘GOOD of OUR COUNTRY’ and not for anything else. At least hindi self-centered si Cong. JV Ejercito.

    “Right after the elections, we could go our separate ways. We could go back to our respective parties.” Senator Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada.

    So that’s it. Prospective senatorial candidates who are set to join this so called United National Alliance (UNA) are mere opportunists who are like “moths” attracted by the brilliance of this union’s endorsers (Estrada and Enrile) which they believe would help them to an easy victory in the 2013 midterm elections. 

    There is no principle involved here, only personal interests which is no doubt detrimental to that of the nation’s.

    Why don’t this septuagenarian and that octogenarian simply rest in peace and enjoy their life in the old age and let the younger ones worry about politics?

    What are their academic records?? Do they have a college degree?? From what school??

    It will be a disaster! A politicians greed knows no boundary! Each one will fight for the remaining slot, each one with reckless delusion supposing everything revolves around them. If they will not get it, they will bolt out and VOILA, You guess it, they’ll run on another ticket!

    And that my friends is what you call – UNITY! 
    Spell ‘super-coalition’ again please? The estrada siblings are as clueless as their father.

  • amelius23

    The statement of UNA for the formation of a super coalition with LP did not sit well with the reading and voting public for whatever political mileage  it was intended but backfired and failed miserably. It was like a death wish for  UNA to have proposed this in the first place, hence, the cosmetic move now of UNA to minimize the effect of the  apparent blunder from the top political strategists of the party? Being a team to beat almost 3 months ago and now relegated to having to form the remnants of a deflated opposition stalwarts for senatorial candidates,  leave everybody in disgust. PNoy being pictured as wimpy and alleged abnoy has unleashed his “hurricane PNoy” force and collected along the way NPC and NP for a coalition with the LP, hence, their coalition   party is almost complete now with a balanced senatorial candidates for May’ 2013. Panay dada at pa porma sila na team to beat kuno, but PNoy has learned and mastered his realpolitiks this early.

    THIS IS JUST A MERE SUGGESTION! PERIOD! , As Cong. JV Ejercito said, this is “ AN IDEAL” situation for the President! But this such coalition would be very difficult to forge given the competing political interests involved. Its up to LP whether they would accept the suggestion of Cong. JV. If they can’t accept it, SO BE IT!

  • indiosbravos2002

    Ang strategy ng UNA magpop ng idea tapos hihintayin ang public reaction. Kung alaskado sila, biglang bawi tapos hirit na personal opinion lang. Bwahaha. Ang kaso puro negative reaction ang nakukuha nila. Ang di makuha kuha ni Binay, sa kanya lahat ng negative opinion napupunta, bago pa 2016 warak na warak na mukha nya. Best way for Binay is to lurk in the shadows.

  • http://twitter.com/Cherrybonghanoy MS. C

    Actually. Cong JV EJERCITO proposal intends to benefit President
    Aquino and the Filipino people, and not  a selected group of people, nor politicians. Its beneficial in the sense that it
    would promote a harmonious relationships between senatorial candidates. LP and UNA have been taking a common platform for the interest of the Filipino
    people. THE IDEA WAS ALL ABOUT UNITY which is BETTER for all of US.

    • ApoLapullapu

      And actually what JV proposed is similar to the KBL of Marcos;  There should be no viable opposition party so that there will be no checks and balances.

      • JK1000

        Tama ka Kabayan ! Sila Sila, Kami Kami attitudes.

      • http://twitter.com/jackpottka jack pott

         @ApoLapullapu: yes you’re right it is similar to Marcos’ KBL, but the difference is their purpose. Pnoy’s and UNA’s goal is positive and for the Philippine’s sake.

      • ApoLapullapu

        Definitely the same purpose – to eliminate all opposition and obtain absolute power.  For the Philippines’ sake? The justification is always the same.  Marcos declared Martial Law to “save the republic and reform society.”  But as Lord Acton says, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  ”Only the time will teach us the hour.” By the way, JV looks well as Congressman of San Juan, I think he does not really need a super-coalition to boost his candidacy. But if possible, let us go to politics of principles – not personalities!

      • http://twitter.com/jackpottka jack pott

        whatever you say, he even said it is easier said than done para lang sabihin kay pnoy na di kami kokontra sayo. anong masama don? masyado kasi kayo malalim magisip.

         he is not boosting his image for the election he is showing his cooperation with Pnoy. ikaw na din nagsabi magaling syang congressman, then why dont we give him a chance to be a senator? im sure di sya kagaya ng iba na senador o “naging” senador nga,pero parang wala lang naman,

  • $29056223

    IDEALLY ang sinabi ni JV Ejercito sa pagkakaintindi ko hindi naman inalok ang LP, ang LP naman napaka arrogant ng dating HOY PNOY PATAASIN MO MUNA ang kalidad ng SERBISYO MO BAGO KA MAGMAGANDA!

  • http://twitter.com/adhierhiz1623 adhie

    I believe UNA is not an opposition party. The purpose of Cong. JV Ejercito suggestion was to unified political parties like LP & UNA since UNA has been vocally supportive on the advocacies of the
    President Aquino. But as Ejercito said, this would be very
    difficult to forge given the competing political interests involved. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT! 

  • hustlergalore

    utang na loob a. isang malaking gimik lang ito ng UNA. kesyo ganito sila, kesyo ganire. kapag nakakuha ng negative reaction mabilis pa ang kabig. parang nagsa-slalom lang ang mga yan.

  • http://twitter.com/jackpottka jack pott

    Kung ayaw nila sa suggestion ni Cong. JV Ejercito, FINE! Wag na lang arogante sa suggestion ni Ejercito. Nag-suggest lang siya, kung ayaw niyo o fine. Dami pang-talak eh. Go JV! Support kita. At least ikaw may naiisip na maganda, sila wala…puro talak at putak lang ang alam.

  • ApoLapullapu

    Jinggoy was thinking like a Senator while JV was thinking as a Congressman.  In the lower house  the general thinking is always be with the President’s party.  But if JV joins the LP he can’t be sure of a slot in the Senatorial ticket. So, the super-coalition came to his mind.  Just being practical in today’s political climate.
