Bro. Eddie Villanueva replaces Virgines in senatorial race

By |


MANILA, Philippines – Jesus is Lord group leader Bro. Eddie Villanueva will be running as the 33rd senatorial candidate in next year’s midterm polls, replacing his Bangon Pilipinas party-mate Israel Virgines.

Villanueva went to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office in Intramuros Thursday afternoon to file his senatorial bid, a few hours after Virgines filed his withdrawal from the senatorial race.

The poll body had earlier accepted the candidacy of Virgines even though he filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) way past the 5 p.m. deadline on Oct. 5, claiming that he was caught in heavy traffic on his way to the Comelec main office.

The poll body voted unanimously to allow Virgines to participate in the elections, deeming reasonable his explanation for being late in filing his COC. The poll body also approved Virgines’ petition as he is being fielded by a major political party “capable of launching a nationwide campaign.”

Villanueva: I want to be ‘peacemaker’ at Senate

Villanueva, who lost in the 2004 and 2010 presidential elections, said that if elected, said he wanted to serve as “peacemaker” at the Senate.

“If there’s conflict among senators, I think I am qualified to patch up any possible differences and hasten the passage of possible legislation needed by our country,” Villanueva said.

The founder of Bangon Pilipinas emphasized the controversial issue on the Reproductive Health (RH) bill, saying that “the spirit of cooperation and unity are paramount to make the Senate more effective in fulfilling its duty to the nation.”

“Dapat pagkatapos ng issue, magkaroon ng healing at sportsmanship to hasten the improvement of the country. Dapat wala yung mga personal(an) (After all issues have been resolved, healing should take place and the spirit of sportsmanship must prevail…They must stay away from personal attacks) ,” he said.

On Wednesday night, the Senate and the House of the Representatives ratified the final version of the RH bill that would provide government funding for contraceptives and sexuality classes in schools. The bill triggered heated debates from both panels, especially on the issue of whether to retain the term “safe and satisfying sex.”

Villanueva, meanwhile, said that he did not want to replace Virgines but that when the latter’s application was approved, the national leadership of Bangon Pilipinas presented to him the “clamor to entertain the substitution.”

Poll Chief Sixto Brillantes Jr, for his part, had earlier noted that the poll body would allow substitutes belonging to the same party until Friday, Dec. 21.

    ganito lang ba kababaw ang pananaw ng isang bishop para tumakbo sa Senado?  Bishop Villanueva is stooping too low and could lead his congregation into disarray!  Religion must not mess-up with the dirty life in Politics!

       Di ko maintindihan ang ibig mo kabayan, masama pala sa yo ang salitang “peace”. Hindi naman nya sinabing wala nang debate, ang sabi nya pagkatapos ng mga debate ay kailangan ang pagkakasundo ng mga ,mambabatas. Let’s be fair, wala akong nakikitang mali sa sinabi nya, nasa isip mo na lang yun.

        Bakit nga hindi sa Mindanao, para bigyan ng lalong ikatatatag ang peacemaking process doon.  O kaya, kahit walang appointment, o electionm, puwede siyang mag-misssion job doon, o saan mang kakailanganin ang kaniyang peacemaking ability.

  • isidro c. valencia

    Politics and religion don’t mix. Tubig at langis yan,
    There is a separation of Church and State. Bro. Villanueva should resign as pastor, 
    then work as full time politician. 
    Pag natalo ka, baba ka sa Mayor, then Councilor, then, Barangay Chairman, then Barangay Councilor, PTA President, and so on. 
    Ilang million ba talaga ang JIL at malakas ka sa politicians?  Katulad mo ay si Bro. Mike Velarde ng El Shaddai. 
    Pinalalakas ka ni Mar Roxas kasi bad shot na si Mar sa Katoliko. 
    Wala na bang matinong politiko?

    Nagugutom na ba ang dyos nitong mga nagtatagong religious party-lists at makikiamot pa sila sa “pork-barrel”?

    Attention Comelec, di ba bawal ang mga nag didisguise na party-list ng mga religious groups?

    Republic Act 7941 or the Party-list System Act, Section 6 of which provides for the “removal” of a party-list organization if “it is a religious sect or denomination, organization or association organized for religious purposes.” This disqualification is directed against two categories of party-list groups: (1) the out-and-out religious sect, and (2) an association which, though not formally a sect, is organized for religious purposes.
