MANILA, Philippines – United Nationalists Alliance (UNA) senatorial candidate Milagros “Mitos” Magsaysay claimed Wednesday that the Liberal Party is using arm-twisting tactics on some politicians and local executives who are friendly to UNA.

In an interview with Radyo Inquirer 990AM, Magsaysay said:

“Tinatawagan na po yung mga mayors po na pinupuntahan namin at sinasabihan na next time kapag nag-entertain pa kayo ng UNA candidates, iipitin namin ‘yung mga puwede naming itulong para sa kampanya mo sa darating na May 2013 elections.”

(They are calling up mayors whom we have visited telling them that next time that they would entertain an UNA candidate they cannot expect any support for their campaign in the upcoming May 2013 elections.)

The Zambales representative also said the threats local executives are receiving from LP include funding the campaign of their rival candidates by the ruling party if they will not cooperate.

“Sinasabihan sila na sige kapag inulit mo pa yan, bubuhusan namin ng pondo iyang kalaban mong Liberal para matalo ka,” she added.

Magsaysay also said a Liberal Party operative even chided a congressman in Batangas for being friendly to her.

UNA candidates, she said, were barred from attending conventions and events such as Philippine Councillors’ League as organizers claim the gatherings are open only to LP members.

According to the Zambales lawmaker, she suspects that this early LP operatives are using these tactics to lay the groundwork the party’s victory in the 2016 presidential polls.

    Mitos, I agree with you. The LP head utilized the pork barrel to twist the arms of congressmen to oust Corona. A dictator par excellence. He is the negative of the his mother who was a positive person. I admire the mother more than the son.

    kung ganoon ba ang kelangan para maalis lahat ng mga kabalahibo ni mitos magsaysay, ok lang, sige tuloy lang ng LP, walang problema. Naaawa na nga lang ang inquirer sa aming mambabasa ng diario nila, hindi na inilagay pangit mong mukha sa mga balita nila alam nila kasi na nasusuka kami tuwing nakikita namin ang mukha mo.

    • doncleo

       bakit ba ito nagrereklamo si Mitos eh gawain din nila yan noong pressidente pa si GMA.? payag din ako sa ganyan taktika basta mawala lang ang mga trapo at magnanakaw sa gobyerno.

  • indiosbravos2002

    What are you talking about Mitos. Majority of the incumbent politicians have jumped ship to LP. Yong iba di nakalipat kasi undesirable tulad mo. Kaya wala talagang susuporta sa UNA. Lalo na sa tulad mong GMA supporter.

  • marlaw

    ENOUGH OF THE TRASH TALKS AND NON-SENSE GOSSIPS MITOS! NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE FOOLISH AS YOU MAY THINK.

    MITOS, masyadong mapaglaro ang isip mo; kung totoo ang sinasibi mo, iharap mo ang witnesses mo para maniwala ang taumbayan – puro ka lip-service. huminto ka na HINDI KA MAGIGING SENADOR…SAAN BA GALING ANG CASH NA GAGASTOSIN MO SA KAMPANYA, bilang kongresman ng may ilang taon, hindi sapat ang suweldo mo para ipundo sa kanditadura mo bilang senador – EH, saan galing, syempre sa PDAF, na hindi mo ginamit sa mga propose projects mo sa iyong nasasakupan. ang KAPAL mo.

    Akala ko ba walang tricks and mud-slinging from UNA? e ano itong mga pantasyang ikinakalat ninyo? Why not stick to real issues and your program of government?

    What do you know… The LP is using the same tactics that the Aquino administration used against GMA to get her in hospital arrest. It obviously worked on that, and they are trying to make it work on this as well to make their chances of winning better. Same tactic coming from the same group of people. The birds with the same feathers indeed flock together. I could just imagine how the PH is going to be if these bullies win.
