SYDNEY, Australia—President Benigno Aquino III sees nothing wrong with the partylist group Akbayan being part of his administration and even receiving P14 million from his three sisters as campaign contribution in the 2010 parallel partylist election.

“It’s one thing to ask for the delisting, perhaps, it’s another thing to prove it. They are allied to us but it doesn’t make them any less of representative of marginalized sectors,” said Mr. Aquino.

The President made this statement when asked during a meeting with the Philippine media delegation over coffee at a hotel here Thursday about calls for Akbayan to be dropped from the list of accredited partylist groups since they are no longer considered marginalized on account of their noticeable presence in the Aquino Cabinet.

Asked about his sisters’ donation, the President said that as long as they were not violating “spending limits,” this was not illegal.

“Is that an issue? If you’re a marginal party, or a party … representing a marginalized sector, you’re not entitled to have supporters? How does a political party exist without supporters?” he said, but quickly added:

“As far as my sisters are concerned, I’ll have to check the records. I don’t remember all of the details.”

An election expenditure document submitted by Akbayan to the Commission on Elections disclosed that Akbayan received a total of P112 million in political contributions during the May 2010 elections.

It showed that Maria Elena “Ballsy” Aquino-Cruz and Victoria Elisa “Viel” Aquino-Dee each contributed P2 million while TV host Kris Aquino, or Kristina Bernadette Yap, gave P10 million.

Kris’ contribution was the biggest among individual contributors. Richard Dee, Viel’s husband, gave P3 million.

The statement said Akbayan received a total of P112,183,000 in contributions from individuals and political parties while its election expenditures reached P112,174,008.70.

The claim that one ceases to be a marginalized party as soon as it allies itself with the ruling power does not sit well with the President.

“They [Akbayan party-list members] are not marginalized because they are allied with us?” he asked.

The President said Akbayan had long been accredited as representative of marginalized sector.

“They can demonstrate [this through] the Mapalad farmers, amongst others,” he said.

Former Akbayan Representative Risa Hontiveros, who ran but lost in the 2010 senatorial election, is making a fresh run for the Senate in the May 2013 elections.

She has been personally handpicked by the President to run on the Liberal Party-led coalition of the administration.

Hontiveros counts as supporters in the Aquino administration her fellow Akbyan partymates and bigwigs—Secretary Ronald Llamas, presidential political adviser; Secretary Joel Rocamora of the National Anti-Poverty Commission and the agency’s spokesperson; and Chair Loretta Ann Rosales of the Commission on Human Rights.

Other members in government are Undersecretary for political affairs Barry Gutierrez, GSIS board member Mario Agujo, Social Security System Commissioner Daniel Edralin, National Youth Commission Commissioner Percival Cendaña, and Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor Commissioner Angelina Ludovice-Katoh.

Barry Gutierrez, Akbayan national spokesman, explained that the contributions indicated the public’s confidence and support for Akbayan advocacies.

He disclosed that Akbayan’s campaign during the 2010 elections was funded mainly by contributions from individual sympathizers.

“To be exact, 95 percent of our funds are donations or contributions from other persons. We ensured that the contributions did not come from illegal, unscrupulous, or tainted sources.

He took potshots at leftist party-list groups he did not name, saying: “Unlike our accusers from the extreme Left, contributions to Akbayan’s electoral campaign did not come from illegal  ‘taxes’ forcibly extracted from logging and mining companies under pain of their installations and equipment being burned and their personnel harmed,” he added.

    14 million galing sa bulsa ng mga magkakapatid hehehe easy money easy go lang pala pera sa kanilang magkakapatid. naglalaro isip ko pag ganyan kabilis magbigay ng pera, ano kaya habol nila buti nalang nabuko.

    • linsanity17

      nothing wrong daw sa pag donate..pro pag d kapanalig, something’s wrong…gnon lng ka simple pag-iisip ni abnoy..c kris pa magdo doante ng wlang ROI, something fishy really, d nila pera un, pera ng LP yan pinadaan lng s knila…gnyan kse ka immaculate tingin ng mga tao sa pamilya na yan…ka ganyan ka lalaki ang mga ulo…kala nila pwde na nila gwin lhat tama man o mali,wlang iimik…

      • jerome jimenez

        sir, talaga lang pong generous si kris, at naniniwala ako kaya nya magbigay ng walang hinihinging kapalit (or sa term nyo ay ROI).  Alam nyo po ba na almost a village na ang nai-donate nya sa pabahay sa mga kababayan natin. Binigyan niya si Pokwang ng isang mini bus because she simply like her.  I can go on with my list but it will be useless if your already made up your mind. 

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

        Two words for you jeremy:

        F@ck You!

    • AzkalGilasFan

      Anong nabuko dyan eh AKBAYAN nga ang nagreport nyan sa COMELEC noong 2010 pa? Transparent sila noon pa tungkol sa mga donasyong natanggap nila. Kahit nga COMELEC, sinasabing walang ilegal at mali sa pagtanggap nila ng donasyon. Bakit sino bang kandidato at partido ang hindi tumanggap ng donasyon? I’m sure ang dami ring natanggap na donasyon ng extreme left mula sa mga Villar.

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

      Pwes, mamatay ka sa inggit Kiko! You will never see that kind of money till the day you die. That’s because it’s not in the cards for you. Your desinity is written in the start. People like you with small brain and an evil envious heart will never prosper. You ought to be thankful that our beloved President PNoy is empowering the party-list groups to become stronger. Puro ka batikos, hinala, ispekulasyon. Bitterness is a manifestation of deep-seated envy and a life of underachievement. Sori na lang at isa kang LOOOSER.

      but then again, may I humbly recommend:
      vote straight LP in 2013
      Ninoy 2.0 = Bam Aquino

      • Cal_Reznick

        Unfortunately, the particular quality that is being admired is not something to be necessarily proud of.

        It would be great to admire the President for his good accomplishments but again unfortunately, one would have a difficult time finding one.

        But hey always think positive…he has 3 years left to hopefully accomplish something good.

    what is the purpose, why the aquino’s supported the left leaning akbayan.? why is Gen. Palparan being demonized as butcher and kidnapper ?. the hunted general is just performing his duty as a protector of the state, fight the enemy of the state. this is mandated by our constitution.

    There are different kinds of “left.”  If you look the most prosperous countries in Europe, some of them are “left” (social democrats, socialists). Hindi lahat ng “left” ay communists. Obviously, hindi komunista ang AKBAYAN kaya nga galit sa kanila ang mga komunista eh. As for Palparan, human rights violator siya. Iba ang protector of the state sa human rights violator.

      True. Hunt Palaparan down, cut him up in pieces and feed him to the dogs. 

  • EdgarEdgar

    There is simply no excuse for this. Soiling the partylist system of our democracy is unpardonable. Just when we’re about to forgive Noynoy for soiling his pants and spoiling the state dinner in Australia, here comes a bigger noxious revelation. It would have been less insulting had Noynoy come clean about the original sources of those dubious funds. Instead, Noynoy and his lying sisters executed an elaborate plan to cover up, deceive and mislead the public. Along the way, they destroyed and defeated the very purpose of the partylist system — to redistribute political power to the helpless and powerless in our society. After enslaving generations of peasant farmers, Noynoy and his clan are now enslaving our entire democracy by gaming the system and rigging the partylist mechanics to favor a powerful select few. From being the biggest hacienda slaveowners, Noynoy and his lying sisters effectively reinvented themselves into the most powerful organized crime family. Another place, another time, this would have caused the impeachment of the president.

    For this is nothing short of betrayal of public trust.

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

      You better watch it. Our DOJ has the ability to track you down. They have the technology but they’re just waiting for the authorization to use that technology. I hope you will be the first cyberlibel criminal they deal with.

      To the rest of you noisy netizens, be warned! F@ck you!

      and may I humbly suggest:

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

        Where have you been Agustin? You seem to be missing the whole point.

        Our beloved President PNoy signed the cybercrime bill into law to protect every Filipino from being harassed and exposed as what happened to Corona. The Cyber libel provision is to stop people like you and other noisy and ill-disciplined netizens from making too much noise that can be picked up by television or radio which in turn can be further amplified and magnified. Netizens alone account for less than 3 out of every 10 Filipinos. Half of all netizens are below the voting age of 18. You netizens do not matter demographically because netizens of voting age are only a nano-minority of our society. The powers that be can afford to ignore you. Nobody wants to become another Corona. The senators hate to become a Corona. The congressmen hate to become a Corona. Even our SC justices hate to be become a Corona. Our beloved President PNoy has no reason to wish to become a Corona. In short, the time and law are on our side and not yours. Time to live with it.

        and may I humbly suggest:
        vote straight LP in 2013

      sir edgar, san ang kasinungalingan dun? kung gusto nila itago ang contribution nila eh di sana inilagay na lang ibang pangalan na madalas gawin ng ibang politiko. In fact i admire akbayan for being transparent at naka declare talaga kung sino ang mga contributor sa kanilang campaign fund at kung magkano ang natanggap. Wala ako nakita mali dito, unless u can explain me in detail to believe otherwise

And so will the bewitchingly lovely Ting-Ting. (notice the latest GSM TV ads of Jawo and how he and Barangay Ginebra will shore up bewitchingly lovely Ting-Ting’s candidacy later). By 2013, our beloved President PNoy will finally be able to consolidate his power and fortify his mandate. You can protest all you want but the days of anti-PNoy lunatics are numbered.

    Regardless of where you stand on the issue of Akbayan, you have to acknowledge the fact that our beloved President PNoy and his administration improved so many lives so much so that even Akbayan hardly qualifies as marginalized in today’s standards. To think we’re not even halfway through yet in PNoy’s presidency. Things are only gonna get better from here on and Filipinos will be happier more than ever. Given more time, more of these so-called marginalized sector will see tremendous improvements in their lives such that nobody would find it necessary be part of party-list group anymore. And may I just say that I love the colorful scarves of Risa Hontiveros. Very fashionable, very avant-garde. Let us continue to support our beloved President PNoy in his effort to lead us along the slippery slopes of Daang Matuwid.

      Youth sektor pa lang panalo na siya. Some 20 out of 50 million registered voters by 2013 will be betwen 18-35 years old. Doon pa lang waging-wagi na ang manok namin. Bam is smart, well educated, has the right brand surname, went to the right schools, has the right political lineage and the birthright to occupy a senate seat. In short, Bam has the right pedigree which you Kaloy at 60 years of age can only dream of. Our guy Bam will win no matter what you say. For those in C,D&E, one look at Bam’s resemblance to Ninoy’s iconic stencil face and ninoyesque eyewear should be enough to win him votes to land between the 9th to 12th senatorial slots. Name recall and facial recognition are the most potent factors of increasing trust and confidence among strangers. Bam has all the advantages in life that you Kaloy will never have. To whom much is given, much is expected —  that is the sacred creed by which the Aquinos and Cojuangcos have always lived by. If you don’t vote for him, you are just one vote less for him.

      Bam will win the day. May Bam be with you.

Yes, one less vote nga yung commenter above or even me but that doesn’t gives you an assurance  na mananalo yung sisiw mo ha? 

        Alam ko binabayaran ka ng amo mo para magpalaganap ng advertisement dito , pero susunod ayusin mo yung pagtugon mo ha? Baka imbes makadagdag , makabawas ka pa ng boto . Nakakainsulto.

        Paumanhin po Ginoong Tampadong. Humihingi po ako ng tawad kung meron po akong nabitawang salita na hindi niyo nagustuhan. Ang katotohanan po niyan ay mahal na mahal po kayo ni Bam at ng ating mahal na Pangulo. Hindi naman po nila ipinamumukha sa inyo o kahit sa kaninuman na syurbol na po si Bam. Syempre po, mas makabubuti rin na makuha ni Bam ang inyong boto. Sana po, sana po, sa darating na pasko mapatawad niyo na po ako. At sana po, sana po, sa darating na halalan sa 2013, mapamahal na po kayo kay Bam Aquino. Mahal niya rin po kayo, kung alam niyo lang sana.

        Para sa mas maunlad na Pilipinas, ihalal po natin si Bam Aquino. Para sa Daang Matuwid patungo sa isang Bagong Lipunana, ihala po natin si Bam Aquino 2013.

    Kaya pala si Hontiveros she can afford to have tv campaign ad last month dahil marginalized and Akbayan. Hahaha!

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

      Even without TV ads, she’s already getting a lot of airtime because of her social activism. She’s pretty, she’s the face of change and the face of youth. And she had a cameo appearance in the impeachment trial, which made her scarves all the more famous. Like Kim K, Risa is famous for being famous. It also helps she’s smart and a milf.

    Nothing wrong to donate. But it should be more of a humanitarian and charitable givings.
    Donations to political party is okay too but not to this marginalized party who has 112 million, that is not marginalized.
    There should be some propriety in giving contribution in as much as Akbayan is a Leftist Party.

  • $14334231

    so, what is 14 million taken off from the 200 million a year of noynoy’s pork barrel while he was a senator?….it’s nothing…it is the votes that they needed from the leftists….noynoy used her sisters so as not to make it too obvious…..ballsy and viel – 2 million each…not too controversial..they’re rich, they can afford it…kris….well, she’s super rich so this is were noynoy gave much the bulk of his money…viel’s husband, 3 million…intsik, di mapera rin….akbayan promised penoy he’ll get the votes from the leftists and so he did, otherwise, he would have been left behind by estrada….now, to the 3 sisters of penoy…..remember the article about our lady of peace hospital along slex….can you ladies help the sisters with their predicaments?….it’s a charitable hospital (‘though i know they also charge minimal fees else how would they survive)..anyway, what’s another 14 million and another 3 million from richard…plus you can always use your influence…if you do this, people will ALWAYS remember you as a charitable families….i mean, A REAL CHARITABLE FAMILIES….

  • victoria_views

    As long as it’s their hard-earned money, they have the freedom to decide where to put it. There’s nothing wrong for a political party identified w/ the marginalized sector to receive donations.

    • Almighty Creator

      because it is scandalous for a political party and a marginalized for that matter to spend a whooping 112M in an election campaign. they can join the election for all they want but not as a marginalized and under represented. that is just simply ridiculous if not stupid.

  • jga94

    I agree, the sisters of PNoy can very well support any party or candidate they choose to in whatever way they can–within legal boundaries. I don’t see what this has to do with the call to de-list Akbayan….

    • Almighty Creator

      because it is scandalous for a political party and a marginalized for that matter to spend a whooping 112M in an election campaign. they can join the election for all they want but not as a marginalized and under represented. that is just simply ridiculous if not stupid.

    Nothing wrong with the contributions but it revealed the true political colors of Akbayan and the interest of the marginalized sectors that it represents may no longer be primary.

  • simondj

    nothing wrong with that because that is their money, and they have the right to give it to whoever they want,,, but i think it is good if given to the poor and to the expnasion of the word of God.

  • g219h

    AKBAYAN is a COMMIE isn’t it?

  • Almighty Creator

    PEOPLE ARE MISSING THE POINT. Akbayan’s spending is scandalous specially for a “marginalized” party. 112M? NP only spent 90M and that is a trapo party. Noynoy used Akbayan to circumvent the limit on airtime and spending. At gaya ng mga trapo ang AKbayan pa gamit naman. Kaya ang tanong ni Kris kay Walden Bello “Deal or No Deal?” Deal syempre ang mokong, Deal with the Devil!

  • Almighty Creator

    Akbayan spends money like Gloria.

  • blainz

    Will fall on deaf ears of the mindless opposition + opportunistic riders… but oh well…

    This is a non-issue.

    I’ve written this before, and got no replies; now that Bayan has exploited this issue to the hilt, nobody second-thinks the logical fallacy since the focus is on hysteria:
    ***************************
    Isn’t it the purpose of a political party to have their ideology adopted by the government?

    By the logic being applied to Akbayan, the moment a party-list gets a couple of important posts, they ought to be disqualified for being successful. Which would make the Philippines the first musical chair democracy on the planet.

    Bayan and Anakbayan seems to confuse representation of marginalized groups with marginalization of representation groups.
    ***************************
    By the same logic, any administration cannot be allied with any party-list and vice-versa.

    Another non-issue: That Akbayan is bought. This is stupid since Akbayan was not in the opposition in the first place.

    All contributions were duly filed with the COMELEC in 2010, and fully disclosed. The Aquinos can very well afford 14M, and ~100M is a small budget for a nationwide campain.

    This cacophony of a thread consists almost entirely GMA supporters and Marcos loyalists trying desperately to ride an non-issue started by people they couldn’t care less about. Anyone really think they care about Bayan Muna and Anakbayan?

    Nice job by the CPP party-lists gaining public exposure cheaply. And parasitically. Let’s see if they can survive scrutiny of their NPA connections.
