LP says common candidates cannot join UNA rallies

‘IF YOU’RE GUESTS, WHICH HOUSE’ The Liberal party-led administration coalition made a clear parameter on Saturday with regards Senatorial candidates for the 2013 midterm elections: Don’t attend rallies of the rival group. INQUIRER PHOTOS

The Liberal party-led administration coalition has made one thing clear to so-called common candidates on the eve of the filing of candidacy papers for the 2013 polls: You do not attend the rallies of the rival United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

While the ruling party is open to some of its chosen candidates being adopted by the UNA, it has strong objections to these candidates appearing in the latter’s campaign rallies, Liberal Party (LP) leaders said on Saturday.

“They could be adopted by UNA but they should not join the rallies of UNA. That would be crossing the line,” said a top-ranked party leader, who asked not to be named for lack of authority to speak on the matter.

“I don’t think there will be a relaxation of the rules,” the source said.

Reelectionist senators Loren Legarda and Francis Escudero, and Grace Poe-Llamanzares, chair of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, have emerged as common candidates of the ruling coalition and the UNA.

House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II, a senior LP member, said that “it would not look good, even for the candidates themselves” to be seen campaigning for both tickets.

Doing so would suggest that a common candidate was endorsing his fellow aspirant on one ticket while junking those on the other, he said.

“While we cannot prevent them from being adopted by the opposing ticket because that’s beyond our control, they should not campaign with the other side,” Gonzales said.

‘Where do you stand?’

Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, the LP president who announced on Saturday that he would be taking a leave from the party presidency, spelled out the kind of challenge facing these common candidates.

“You should ask the candidates: If they’re guests, which house? There are guests. If you’re a guest, then where is your house? Where do you stand?” Roxas said.

“If I were the voter, I’d ask that question,” he said.

The situation was a “reflection more on the candidate, rather than party,” he said. After all, the party’s position during Mr. Aquino’s presidency has been clear, he said.

The President will proclaim the administration coalition’s senatorial candidates at Club Filipino on Monday. Apart from the three common candidates, they are: Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Aquilino Pimentel III and Antonio Trillanes IV; former senators Ramon Magsaysay Jr. and Jamby Madrigal; Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara; former Las Piñas congresswoman Cynthia Villar; Akbayan party-list member Rissa Hontiveros; and the President’s cousin, Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV.

Only Magsaysay, Madrigal and Bam Aquino are members of the LP. The rest are from the LP’s coalition partners, the Nacionalista Party, Nationalist People’s Coalition, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino. Escudero and Llamanzares are independents.

Bam Aquino and Llamanzares, the daughter of the late movie star and defeated presidential candidate Fernando Poe Jr., are new to politics.

According to an LP official, Legarda, who met with the President on Thursday, expressed her desire to attend the rallies of both coalitions but was told by Mr. Aquino she couldn’t show up at the UNA rallies. He could not say what the final arrangement with Legarda would be.

The same official said Llamanzares had indicated that she would not attend the rallies of UNA.

Asked if he would share the stage with Escudero, Roxas replied: “I’m not a candidate. I will perform my job as DILG (Department of the Interior and Local Government) secretary and a member of the Cabinet. Campaigning and politics are a candidate’s relationship with the Filipino people.”

Escudero is known to have promoted the Aquino-Jejomar Binay team-up in the May 2010 presidential elections. Roxas, Mr. Aquino’s running mate, lost to Binay in the vice-presidential race.

Next year’s midterm elections are seen as a test run for the 2016 presidential elections. Binay has declared his intention to run for president in 2016 while Roxas is the presumptive administration candidate.

 

‘Treat parties fairly’

Deposed President Joseph Estrada, a senior UNA leader who was once adamantly against sharing candidates with the administration coalition, took the LP stance against common candidates campaigning for both sides with equanimity.

“That’s OK,” said Estrada while pointing out that UNA was open to allowing some of its candidates to campaign with the other ticket.

Binay was not as composed about the issue. Interviewed by phone from Iloilo where he had been inducting UNA local candidates, the vice president said the common candidates should treat both parties fairly.

“What the candidates will do for the other party, the same should be done for UNA,” said Binay, who pointed out that UNA had ditched its rule that guest candidates must exclusively campaign for UNA in order to be accepted into the lineup.

“The issue is they will stand up for the other party and not for ours?  What about us? What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander,” he said.

“If the common candidates take the administration party’s stage, they should also take ours,” he said.

UNA is a merger of Binay’s PDP-Laban party and Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino.

Rounding up UNA’s senatorial slate are: reelectionist Sen. Gregorio Honasan; Representatives JV Ejercito, Estrada’s son, Jackie Ponce Enrile,  the son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile who is an UNA official; Rep. Milagros Magsaysay; former senators Ernesto Maceda, Miguel Zubiri and Richard Gordon; former Gov. Tingting Cojuangco, the President’s aunt; and Joey de Venecia III.

Estrada on Saturday said the UNA slate had room for two more. He said De Venecia, who ran for senator and lost in 2010, was reconsidering joining the Senate race next year.

Walking the straight path

Leaders of the rival coalitions on Saturday touted up the relative strengths and advantages of their respective lineups.

“It’s people from different places, parties and histories coming together to support the President’s vision for the country,” said Communication Secretary Ricky Carandang.

“Our senatorial lineup has chosen to walk the path of the President,” he said.

“We are offering the voters a choice: to continue with what President Aquino is doing through good governance or to return to the transactional self-serving politics of the past,” he said.

“This is a broad coalition of parties that has demonstrated its efficacy in pushing the Aquino administration’s reform agenda. Its extensive grassroots coverage will ensure victory for the administration’s coalition slate,” said Budget Secretary Florencio Abad.

“It’s a good mix of veteran legislators and young aspirants—social entrepreneurs, political activists and professionals—who have proven their worth in their respective fields,” he said.

More competent?

UNA spokesperson JV Bautista described the UNA slate as also a good mix—of Mr. Aquino’s ardent supporters and harshest critics. He said the lineup was formed to provide voters with an alternative to Mr. Aquino’s partymates and partners in the administration coalition.

They will pursue Mr. Aquino’s reform agenda, “only more competently” than his allies, Bautista said.

“It’s a strong lineup. The candidates are doing very well in the surveys, most of them anyway,” he said.

He said common candidates Legarda, Escudero and Llamanzares were chosen because of their long association with UNA’s core leaders—Binay and Estrada—in the struggle against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

“Inasmuch as the other coalition would like to share them, we have to share them,” Bautista said.

He claimed that the three were already in the UNA lineup before the LP coalition wooed them.

In Legarda’s case, it was only after UNA announced that she had been drafted that the President invited her to join the administration coalition, he said.

According to Binay, in terms of the UNA slate’s strength, the effect of the common candidates was neutral.

“From senators down to local candidates, we are very, very strong. If you put our candidates one-on-one against the other party, we are stronger than they are,” he said.

    This election is a lot of circus. “Dog eats dog” is the name of the game and coalition, partnership, or whatever mutual arrangements only facilitate this “dog eats dog” reality in politics. Furthermore, the SWS and Pulse Asia will be feasting again with a lot of moolah from the highest giver. But look how dependable this political surveys are? When VP Binay ran in the last election, he consistently received a 2% rating by these whimsical survey outfits. And, when the BiNoy was revealed showing that Roxas’ candidacy is being submarined by Binay’s Samar Group, the rise in Binay’s rating was only 2.5% two weeks prior to the election. Lo and behold Binay won. Now, how can SWS and Pulse Asia explain that? 

    One thing is clear in this election: Whoever holds the key to the Hocus PCOS will win and that’s the bottom line.

    I will definitely not vote for Honasan, Zubiri, Maceda, Mitos Magsaysay, Gordon, JV Ejercito, and Casino.  However, I will complete the two slots based on the most likely winners to reduce the chances of Honasan, Zubiri, Gordon, Mitos Magsasay, Ejercito, and Maceda from winning.  Truth be told, the field of choices is very limited.  I would have preferred if Ruffy or Pong Biazon and Erin Tanada were included.  I did not vote for PNoy in 2010, but now, I cannot vote for anybody who will not support PNoy.

        Bam Aquino is running for his first political seat i think. He’s not a trapo by that definition. But that does not mean I’ll vote him. Maybe maybe not.

        Coco and Alan – maybe, you can call them trapos as well because even though they are relatively new in the political arena, the way they conducted themselves in the Senate is really like the way the old guards (Enrile, Honasan, Revilla, Sotto) do — although not yet quite as thick-faced and callous as those listed.

    What battle lines are they talking about?  The fact that opposing parties can adopt the same candidate shows there is no difference between one and the other except the name.  As for the adopted candidate, whose “principle” does he uphold  –  that of one party or the other, or both; which latter case precisely proves one party is no different from the other.

      The political parties here in the philippines has no  meaning what they stands for, not like the US and other countries.It is just like a jeep ni Erap, politicians can take a free ride any of them and still it takes them to their destination.

  • http://twitter.com/JasonJacoba Jason Jacoba

    Where is your house? The Philippines is the house. People tend to look over the fact that we’re actually forming one unified government here. Lines are drawn, because people insist that there should be lines! Loren Legarda is one senator who looks beyond those lines, and work together with other parties through goodwill, excellence and relationships. 
    “You should ask the candidates: If they’re guests, which house? There are guests. If you’re a guest, then where is your house? Where do you stand?” Roxas said.
    “If I were the voter, I’d ask that question,” he said.

  • AVAVAOoOAVAVA

    You know what, sometimes the problem of the Philippines is that they always want a competition. There is no competition of parties here, only an election. If lines are drawn, it is because we draw it for the candidates. I support Loren Legarda for her openness and her foresight to see beyond those lines drawn. That is something that I admire most about her. She got my number 1 vote when she said yes to UNA, especially if she’ll say yes to PNoy’s LP!

  • theEyeofSauron

    It is important that we take away from our minds our pre-conceptions and judgements, and focus only on their achievements, platform and track-record. Senators like Loren Legarda have proven, time and time again, that service to the Filipino people is something that she is actually very good at. And it is correct, that we shouldn’t mind parties. They are there for their purposes, and not ours..we should focus on the line-up we’re going to vote for in the upcoming elections. Pick the right person who does not disappoint the Filipino people, because of their commitment to service. 

  • http://twitter.com/KayeCalimlim Kaye Calimlim

    Personally, I still admire Loren Legarda. I believe in the choices that she has been making thus far, and she does not disappoint in the end. Loren is indeed someone that is easy for me to support. Her stand on women’s rights and the environment alone has me convinced she’s the perfect number 1 senator over and over.

    Mar Roxas hates Chiz’ guts for a reason. He knows that Chiz is going to just use LP slot as leverage against other senators, and he knows that in the end, he’s just going to claim all the success for himself. That’s why after all these years, he’s still a candidate. He wants all the credit.

    I wish we have another way of enacting national laws of our land. This never ending extravaganza in electing senatongs have not resulted to well crafted laws. Ang dami nga ng kabalbalan dyan sa senate. Alisin na yang senate na yan. Ako, hindi na ako boboto sa senatorial candidates. Waste of time. Pare-pareho lang naman ang kulay nila. Lahat sila may mining company.. this is mine, that is mine.     May battle lines nga.. it is the senators against the Filipino masa.

  • zeroko

    Let us not vote traditional politicians. Remember, none of the Senators ever objected against the intrusion of China to our territory. In fact, Enrile is welcoming the Communist Chinese to our country by his proposal to legalize the 100% Chinese capitalization, and also the Chinese rights to purchase lands here in the Philippines. This old goat is committing treason, he is a traitor to the PHilippine republic for even suggesting such arrangement.

    May sigalot na nga ang mga Tenant Farmers because of lack of land, eto si Enrile having the gull to suggest giving the Chinese to purchase and own lands here? He heh. Do you want these kind of politicians who just close their eyes to what the Communist China is doing?

    Gumising na kayo sa katutuhanan, for “convinience” lang ang dahilan kung bakit tumatakbo ang mga kumag na mga TRAPO. Same face, same activities. Puro pasarap lang ang ginagawa ng mga Senators. 

    Remember what Miriam Santiago, the lady Senator said, “With 200 million pesos pork barrel, at 20% that goes to the pocket of each Senator, that would be a 40 million pesos yearly intake. And with 23 Senators, it means 920 million pesos total lost by Juan de la Cruz every year. In three years term, that;s almost 2.76 billion pesos. This is not withstanding the over pricing, the ghost projects, ghost scholarship, and etc. 

    You add the maintenance of each Senator. A Senator receives almost 70 thousand salary a month. However, if you equate the 30 million pesos to maintain his office, his travel allowances, his bonus, his representation allowances, his per diems, free SUV (4 VEHICLES), FREE GASOLINE/DIESEL, FREE INTERNET, FREE LOAD ON CELLPHONE, AND THEY ALSO HAVE A SUMMER VACATION IN BAGUIO. etc. Daming privileges ng mga Senator. Para na silang anak nag hari. Compliment of millions of starving Filipinos.

    Our government is not a democracy. We have an Oligarchy type of government wherein politics is just a past time of the rich and powerful. It is a close knit group, and exclusive group. Magkakakilala lahat ng mga mayayayamang politiko. Walang mahirap na Pilipino ang kailanman na halal sa gobyerno natin. 

    Politics in the Philippines is exclusively for the rich Chinese, and sponsored by Chinese business organization. No Filipino will ever win in such a game. For the Chinese, politics is ;just a game of who will spend more. Remember what Chiz Escudero, that young Senator said. “I can not function as President had a won in the May 2010 election if I am beholden to the head of my political party. From now on, my political party is the Filipino people and no one else.”

  • Philcruz

    I still believe the LP should not have had any common candidate. They say the common candidate cannot and should not attend the opposition rallies. But what if they do? What can the LP do?

But his partner Binay is still against it..somewhat..somewhat. Funny politics.

    If we have to be serious about the list of UNA and LP then it is glaring that both coalition is almost a coalition by itself. UNA and LP is nothing but just a Samar and Balay faction. UNA has Binay and Roxas with LP. There is actually no opposition here with both Binay and Roxas are common friends of Pnoy with whom he owes them debts of gratitude in supporting him. Unless Pnoy make a statement of support to any one of the coalition or taunt Binay’s party mates with names then Pnoy’s leaning will be known. Tiyak hilo si Pnoy who to support in the election, ang grupo ba nang taga Capiz na si Roxas or taga Makati na si Binay. My conclusion Pnoy is married to both Binay and Roxas at dalawa ang kanyang puso.

  • Pia Pilar Francisco

    The battle lines have been drawn alright. But like all lines drawn on shifting sands, the demarcation will soon blur like the hazy morals of our politicians if they ever had one. I am worried for PNoy as he is squandering away political capital like a profligate heir. By allowing his cousin Bam Aquino to exploit his rockstar popularity and letting Bam stand on his tall shoulders, PNoy is turning off many of his supporters. We did not vote for PNoy so that he can populate the government with more of his blood kins. Recent events such as the Puno cover-up, the unprincipled coalition with Bong-Bong, the China backdoor channel and Tito Peping’s questionable and yet unlimited tenure in POC are slowly eroding the political trust and capital PNoy has painstakingly gained since ousting Corona. The inclusion of Tita Ting-Ting in the UNA slate is not something PNoy can remain silent about. Taken at face value, PNoy’s aunt appears to be with the opposition but that is just to avoid a glaring conflict of interest had she squeezed herself in the LP slate. By not openly distancing himself from his Tita Ting-Ting who once dreamed of ruling over the Muslim world of Minadanao and now aspiring to be a member of the senate, PNoy is passively exposing himself as the naked posterboy of political dynasty. When things are good and the economy seems to be performing well buoyed up by foreign liqudity, PNoy has nothing to worry about. But when global turn of events begin to turn the tide against PNoy, it will be too late for him to even sigh in regret.

    Now is the time to save up and invest your political capital wisely, PNoy.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WEBQQWQDFI3HXAMQFTUHVVUHNU ame mojica

       I would give Bam Aquino a chance rather than vote anybody from the UNA. I trust the wisdom of Pnoy in choosing Bam than his social climber aunt in law Tingting Cojuangco. Pnoy should fire his Uncle Peping because he is under the thumb of his power and money hungry wife. Tamang tama itong mag asawang ito sa UNA pare pareho silang mga corrupt.

    The TRAGEDY of Philippine politics is the WEAKNESS of the political party system. The political parties are UNABLE TO DEVELOP PARTY VISION / MISSION that can create national adherents, and  TO TRAIN LEADERS who can PROVIDE CONTINUITY of programs.

    Present political parties are PERSONALITY-DRIVEN, LACKING DEPTH and TRUE LEADERS. These parties cannot even fill up a complete slate. They rely on OLD NAMES, POLITICAL DYNASTIES, UNINSPIRING PEOPLE.

    At best the Filipino is given no choice outside of the USUAL PIGS => Politicians Insatiably Gorging Slop (Power, Public Funds, Dirty Money, Graft, Corruption, SHAMELESSNESS). Once in a while NON-PIGS come along, to refresh the political scene, but this is a rarity. Such is the SAD STATE of Philippine politics; EMPTY and NO VALUE.

    Same dogs, different collar.  What can we expect?  The fact na di sila makapag unit para makapag field ng common candidates, sa dami ng kandidato na ito, obviously personal interest and nasa isip nila, craving for POWER and money (?).  I understand that fielding many candidates will give the electorates more options but in reality they all have common campaign agenda and why can they just gather all agendas if it is for the interest of the country.  It is very obvious also that party interests is more important to these candidates than national interest.  Huwag kayong mga sinungaling!  Sigurado ako na ang campaign ay mauuwi na naman sa mudslinging. Bawat isang kandidato ay hahalukayin ang baho ng iba at palalabasin na mas magaling at malinis sya.  Never na ang kampanya ay about pagalingan ng perspective kung ano ang maganda para sa bayan.  Kung sang ayon sila sa plano ng Administrasyon, bakit hindi pag isahin ang slate para solid ang dating.  Trapong-trapo.  Yong mga bago, trapo pa rin, bagong palit nga lang kasi di kayang alisin ang putik ng lumang trapo at di kayang paputiin kahit sa dagat pa ng chlorox ibabad.

  • http://www.ninoyandcory.gov.ph/ It’s No Time To Doubt Now

    No matter where you stand on the issue of political dynasty, you have to admit that the Aquinos and Cojuangcos have always done right by the Filipino people throughout our history. It is no different with Bam Aquino and Ting-Ting Cojuangco. Both come from strong families with strong Filipino family values. Both have solid family brand name and name recall. Both have the seal of approval of Noynoy, which means their certified  clean and kosher. Both can help Noynoy consolidate his power and strengthen Noynoy’s mandate. In turn, this will all help in paving a bigger, faster and better Daang Matuwid.

    If you’re for Daang Matuwid, you will never go astray with the likes of Bam Aquino and Ting-Ting Cojuangco. It is high time that we put people with names that ring a bell in the senate. Bam and Ting-Ting for Senators in 2013.

    As early as now, Chiz Escudero already has my vote. I don’t mind the fact that Chiz is so in love with his own voice. Coz guess what, I’m also in love with his voice. I can imagine myself listening to Chiz go on and on and on and on and on till kingdom come, even if he’s not making much sense. His sound bites and droopy eyelids have this magical quality that never fails to hypnotize his willing audience and adulating fans. In a country where everything that comes out on TV and newspapers are bad news, we need someone who has soothing voice like Chiz to make us feel better about our country and ourselves.

    We love you Chiz.

    It is true that two heads are better than one.  Which is why, it is better to have two Estradas in the senate than one. Although Jinggoy is not as smart as JV, having both of them in the senate will complement each other.

Are this the only candidates who can lead the Filipino People.

    Source: Manila Standard
    BAM Aquino
    A day after he was inducted into the ruling Liberal Party, senatorial
    hopeful Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV on Saturday said he hopes to champion
    in the Senate his espoused principle that “economic freedom is just as
    important as political freedom” and he wants to make this part of his
    family’s legacy to the Filipino people.

    The 35-year-old Aquino is president of Hapinoy, a social enterprise
    that has been awarded around the world for its poverty alleviation
    program using innovations in micro-enterprise, micro-finance, and the
    Filipino staple, the sari-sari store.

    Since its inception in 2007, Hapinoy has already improved the lives
    of thousands of households from different parts of the Philippines.

    “Our experience in Hapinoy has shown that when you give someone not
    just a dole-out but access to credit, market, training, and other
    support services, they will be able to lift themselves and their
    families out of poverty,” Aquino said.

    “From subsistence income-earners with barely anything to eat, they
    become micro-entrepreneurs who are able to run a successful
    micro-business and support their families. Some of them even graduate to
    running larger community stores that also employ others in their
    community,”he added.

    “Now, imagine if we can adapt and apply this idea to larger programs
    and even to policy-making for the poor. That is People Power. That is
    democracy and freedom of access and opportunity.”

    A multi-awarded social entrepreneur and one of the Ten Outstanding
    Young Persons for 2012, Aquino was sworn into the Liberal Party on
    Friday by Liberal Party president and Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar”
    Roxas II, and witnessed by his older cousin, President Benigno Aquino
    III.

    In joining the LP, the younger Aquino vowed to continue the “Aquino
    legacy of democracy and freedom,” saying that poverty is one of the
    biggest obstacles to enjoying true freedom, and that “economic freedom
    is just as important as political freedom.”

    “We literally have millions of Filipinos suffering from poverty and socio-economic oppression,” Aquino points out.

    “We can’t really say that they’re enjoying the freedom and democracy
    that we have fought for, because they feel that their poverty has
    limited their options. We need to show them that this is not the
    case—that there is a way out of poverty. Socio-economic oppression is
    just as debilitating and as unacceptable as political oppression.”

    No stranger to policy-making, Bam Aquino became the youngest
    chairperson of the National Youth Commission when he headed the agency
    in 2003, at 25 years old. He was also an active student leader.

    “I hope to be able to contribute to policy-making that is pro-poor,
    pro-democracy, and pro-freedom of economic and social opportunities,”
    Aquino adds.

      hmmmm… puede to sa partylist..

  • Aber!

    Ting-Ting is a sure win. She not only has his presidential nephew’s tacit support, she has the support of her husband Peping, too. Those who know Peping should know how powerful he is. And those who know the wealthy Danding should also know that the Cojuangco clan is now reunited  and even more powerful after decades of tampuhan. Not only this. By being the mother-in-law of Jaworski Jr, Ting-Ting automatically has the loyalty and the votes of the entire Barangay Ginebra. From now until election day, Ting-Ting does not need to lift a finger and she’ll still win a senate seat hands down. Galeng!

    A brilliant woman’s time to serve the country has finally come.

    5) Cayetano
    6) Magsaysay Jr.
    7) Llamanzares
    8) Gordon

    Candidate who I might reconsider.
    9) Madrigal: One of the misunderstood candidates. Apart from her crazy antics she did manage to do some good such as supporting/funding an orphanage which I support. She also had a hand in funding/supporting the madrigal singers even if she was not recognised for it.
    My vote for Jamby hangs by the thread and it will depend upon the manner of how she campaigns. I hope to see a more improved Jamby.

    Truth be told.

    The rationale for the LP leadership’s decision to field only three LP members (two of whom are new members) in their senatorial slate is a political strategy and a calculated risk. PNoy and his LP minions know that the coming senatorial election a referendum for his bungling administration. Hence, if the LPs will lose in the election, which seems to be destined, the conclusion that the result is an expressed rebuke of the administration is certainly avoided since PNoy can always say that only three LP members ran. It’s a clever but inutile strategy of the student government.

    It’s a weird mix and match game from both UNA and LP-NP-NPC coalition. Sen. Gordon with Erap (who booted him out at SBMA) and Binay. Villar with Aquino. People will no longer vote based on party affiliation, but on performance. With that, the whole Filipinos will give Senator Dick Gordon 99.9% grade. You are the kind of President that Filipinos need. Hopefully, you will face-off with Binay. Furthermore, I just feel that Sen. Gordon is like an angel in the midst of the devils in the deep blue sea. Sayang at napunta siya sa UNA, Una sa pandurugas, Una sa Pagiging Trapo, Una sa Pagiging Epal. Pero pagtutlung-tulungan nating maging UNA si Sen. Dick Gordon sa senado. PNoy should have taken him not those trapos and some strangers who have not even proven themselves in public service.

    LP’s selection process glaring brouhaha:

    1. They are calling their ticket as LP coalition pero si Magsaysay lang ang original LP, the rest are pirated candidates like Quiapo’s pirated DVDs (maybe it’s the Political Adviser LLamas suggestion, no wonder);

    2. Selection of candidates was based on “winnability” kaya pinili nila ang mga dating talunan na si Jamby Madrigal at Risa Hontiveros Baraquel;

    3. Junking of allies – Cabinet secretaries who are perceived to have better chances like Henares, De Lima, the loyal House Impeachment Gang like Erin Tanada are relegated to the dustbin, proof that it’s all about money and campaign funds. By the way, Padaca is already appointed commissioner and it;s your informed guest of what is the motive behind her appopintment; 

    4. Finally, no to KKK and political dynasty, except Bamban Aquino who told the media that he needs the help of his relatives, friends and classmates, Di pa tinagalog dahil mahalatang Kamaganak, Kaibigan, at Kaklase. Neophyte daw pero magaling ng gumaya sa style ni PNoy. To top it all, the aunt Tingting Cojuangco runs in the UNA ticket. Another mystery? Not exactly. Masyado na kasing halata kung Aquino-Cojuangco magkasamang tumakbo sa isang ticket.

    My conclusion:

    People are in for a grand zarzuela. The super coalition is the hidden LP-UNA grand coalition itself. No wonder they have common candidates, the rest are stooges and props to show to the people that their is an existing tight race when the reality is that all is scripted. In short, nakatoka na sa Hocus PCOS kung sino ang mananalo.

  • spearheads

    To prove my point, ngayon palang I can predict that two neophytes are sure winners of the electoral charade and these are Bamban and Tingting that is why I fondly call them “Bamtingting” or batingting or batingaw, the new replacement of wang-wang. PNoy will absolutely peggy back them up to the finish line with the help of the the ‘three stooges” Escudero, Legarda, and Ll;amanzares. Events will prove me right.

    Standards:

    1. No to any administration candidate;

    3. No to political tikbalangs;
    4. No to pro RH proponents;
    5. No to any candidate with Chinese descent;
    6. No to any candidate who declares to high heavens to be independent but then appears at the proclamation of the administration party;
    7. No to any candidate who challenged PNoy to sign an unconditional bank waiver then keep his peace when his party coalesce with LP;
    8. No to any candidate who turned his back against his party’s commitment, adamantly refuses to resign as head of his party, then joins the administration leaving his allies disoriented;
    9. No to murder suspects;
    10. No to coup d etat plotters;
    11. No to a candidate who belatedly runs just so he can affect or diminish the voting result of his namesake;
    12, No to any candidate with broken marriages. If they can’t preserve their own marriage then with more reason that they can not unite the people;
    13. No to ingrate backdoor controversial double agents who does not even understand the essence of back channeling; 
    14. No to any candidate who destroyed a presidential hopeful for her own selfish presidential ambition then makes makes peace with the same nemesis because of her senatorial ambition;15. No to another Ejercito or Estrada and those who are similarly situated.
    16. But most of all, no to neophytes who only boasts of their blood relations to a political dynasty without any track record and desperately hopes for “help from relatives, friends, and classmates.
