‘UNA never invites me in its sorties’—Escudero

MANILA, Philippines – He may be part of the senatorial slate of the United Nationalist Alliance  (UNA) but Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero said  he has never  been invited by the  group to any of its sorties.

Escudero, who is  officially running  under the Liberal  Party-led coalition, aired this sentiment when  asked on Tuesday about the coalition’s warning to its candidates, who were also adopted by UNA,  against joining the latter’s sorties.

“(I am) not aware of it. But I don’t think it’s an issue,” he said of the LP’s warning.

“Hindi din naman ako iniimbitahan o sinasabihan ng UNA sa sorties e (Una hasn’t invited me or informed me of its sorties),” Escudero added.

Aside from Escudero, the two LP candidates , who were  also  adopted by UNA , are  Senator Loren Legarda,  and former Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chairperson Grace Poe-Llamanzares.

Legarda did not say if the LP had indeed prevented her from joining UNA sorties as she  also refused to say if she would campaign exclusively with the administration team.

“I will go on an environmental campaign with disaster reduction risk workshops and climate change lectures for local communities,” she said  when asked about the LP’s warning.

Asked if she was then planning a solo campaign and join some LP sorties, Legarda said: “(I) will play it by ear. I cannot go to noisy rallies due to vertigo. Doctors have advised me to avoid noisy gatherings.”

      I admire Chiz for being so candid about his Dad’s ties to Marcos. All pols should be this
      honest

    Those so-called common candidates should better make up their minds and decide once and for all which party they will affiliate or risk being labelled as balimbings, which of course most of them are.

      Of all the candidates, Chiz has been the most consistent: oppo under GMA, admi under Aquino

    Escudero, Legarda and Poe are no longer torn between two lovers. With LP joining forces with UNA in tacitly supporting the abuse of MOOE and voting to retain Enrile as senate president, LP and UNA are now one big happy family. Corruption makes strange bedfellows. No longer feeling conflicted, Chiz gets to keep his heart for Heart alone.

    Basta’t para sa kapakanan ng mga trapo, magkasangga ang LP at UNA.

  • KpTUL

    Dont be dumb escudero ! UNA ka nga pero LP naman ang loyalty mo. Dapat masaya ka hindi ka ininvyte ng UNA baka ma-apektohan yung love life mo at pag gue-guesting mo sa TV. Teka, senador ka ba or artista ? Mukha yatang gusto mo angkinin ang buong mundo. OK na yung may teenager ka na girfriend at senador ka. Pati ba namn pag aartista sinuswapang mo pa. Dahan dahn chiz!

    • Guest

      Binubuhay nila ang old issues na walang ka-torya-torya. Dapat mag-isip
      na ibang propaganda itong mga kalaban ni Chiz Escudero.

  • kikomonkey

    Chiz, no disrespect man but i cant any reason to respect you..hindi nirerespeto ang mga taong walang kwenta at walang alam kung hindi magnakaw sa sarili nyang bayan..

  • akosibonjing

    si chiz, walang alam ang senador na yan..sa bibig nya mismo nanggaling na tamad sya..kayo na ang humusga kung gusto nyo magkaroon ng senador na walang silbi.

  • winnerka

    Tama na ang pagpapanggap mo chiz..tigilan mo na ang paupoupo sa senado at gastahin ang pera ng bayan!

  • YanoSantos

    I think that Chiz and
    his ex are already seeing other people so why some people are hating on them?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CUQOJLALSSXKS7YEF4YPLIXNZM Priscilla

    Hindi na uso ang mga black propaganda thru text, luma na yan. Kaya walang epekto yang panininira na yan kay Chiz Escudero.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/LBBTKVI5HPZLXYT3XVGJZJSF3Q Jhorge

    Matalino na ang tao. Yang mga text blasts kay Chiz, they know naman na paninira lang kaya hindi basta-basta naniniwala ang publiko. I said, useless

  • Guest

    I don’t believe all these intrigues about Chiz. If his wife is disgruntled,  she’d be on Korina’s show

  • Guest

    Eto pa isang text blast. Ibinenta na raw tayo ni Chiz Escudero sa mga Chinese dahil gusto niyang magkaroon ng “joint exploration” sa  West Phil Sea. Hindi totoo yan!

  • Guest

    Useless lang paninira nila thru text kay Chiz. Instead na makasira baka nga lalong makatulong pa yan para lalong kumapit sa No. 1 si Chiz.
