MANILA, Philippines—Administration senatorial bet Grace Poe will be a no show at the United Nationalist Alliance’s proclamation rally in Cebu on Tuesday but she will be represented by her son and cousin, actress Sheryl Cruz.

Poe, who is running under President Benigno Aquino’s Team Pnoy, was also adopted as guest senatorial candidate of UNA.

The former state censors chief would be at Team Pnoy’s proclamation rally this Tuesday at the Plaza Miranda in Quiapo, Manila, said a statement released by her office.

“The independent senatorial candidate will be represented by her son Brian Poe and cousin, actress Sheryl Cruz, at the proclamation rally of the United Nationalist Alliance of Vice President Jejomar Binay to be held in Cebu,” the statement said.

Before going to Team Pnoy’s proclamation rally, Poe will visit the grave of her father, Fernando Poe Jr., for a short prayer at the Manila North Cemetery. Fernando Poe, the late “Action King” of Philippine cinema, ran for president unsuccessfully in 2004.

Grace Poe, the statement said, is running for the Senate “on a platform of Poverty alleviation, Opportunities for all (especially the youth and the children) and Electoral reforms” or POE.

Aside from Poe, re-electionist senators Loren Legarda and Francis “Chiz” Escudero are running under Team Pnoy but were also adopted as guest candidates of UNA.

    DO NOT VOTE FOR TEAM PNOY. 
    THEY DO NOT WANT FOI TO BECOME LAW.

    THEY USED RH BILL TO SIDELINE FOI.
    THEY WILL USE DIVORCE BILL TO PREVENT IT AGAIN.

    using controversial measures to distract people is their modus operandi.

    So beware. They don’t want transparency since that will expose their well hidden corruption.

    If PNoy and LP wanted transparency, they could have prioritized it in the first 3 years. 

    • Claro_d_recto

      Sa palagay mo ba yong mga iboboto mong team ay maisusulong ang FOI? Sinusuwerte ka!

      Bugok! Sumama ka sa UNA mong tadtad nga mga babaero, mamamatay-tao, mandarambong!

    • filipinaskoh

      Kung Ayaw ni PNOY ng FOI MAS HIGIT NA AYAW NG UNA iyon dahil puro sila MGA CORRUPT.
      At least kay PNOY may pagasa ang FOI sa UNA- WALA

  • calixto909

    Ms Poe stick to Pnoy Team and you’ll win but if you have two faces like a dagger then you’ll lose. Pnoy’s charm and economic achievements will become the rallying point of the team’s vote so for your own good, cling like leech. As an example, here in the City of Baguio, the on line surveys showed that the LP candidates from Congressman, mayor and councilors had dominated the votes in a landslide manner.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Eh ano ngayon? Di ka nga sinama ng False Asia sa survey, kulang ka siguro sa tip.

  • entong238

    Mabango si Noynoy dahil sa magandang trabaho niya. Malaking bagay yon at siguradong malaki ang hatak niya sa mga boto lalo na sa kabayanan kaya kumapit ka sa pangkat niya. Dumistansiya ka sa UNA at panay bulok ang nandoon kagaya nina Binay, Enrile at Estrada. 

  • Fulpol

    if she lost in the election, who will she blamed?  Arroyo?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/PQPOCGSITYMSD2UTYIN4TJP56U Rene

       probably…

  • JuanTamadachi

    Grace, at some point you have to cross the rubicon. You either go to UNA or to team PNoy. Playing on both sides is just not good in my book.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DSUA7MULVNAP2RHHDIF2CH6IK4 Mario

    Grace Llamanzares Poe wag iboto! kagaya ka ni Cayetano ginagamit si Gloria sa pulitika para libre publicity mga Bwisit kayo! Ang gumamit kay Gloria wag iboto kasi si Gloria mas matino sa inyo dahil walang napatunayang nandaya sa election at walang napatunayan nagnakaw! kayong mga Liberal Party members mga kawatan!

    • Maitum

      Do you pretend to be telling the truth? Hahaha…

  • mangTASYO

    it’s a disGRACE na mamangka sa dalawang ilog!

    call a spade a spade…”Grace” or “disGrace”?

    • Mario Salinas

      The grand beginnings of a great Trapo.

      Like Loren Legarda who flirts from one political group to another in search of more mileage, Grace Poe shows no personal or political convictions, just plain opportunism.
       

  • Noel

    Take away the last name POE and Grace would land last in the election.

  • DonkeyKong1

    Ano ba yan si poe, absent,wag iboto, parehas sila ni chiz, mga senador na dapat burahin sa listahan.

  • AriannaDraws

    Grace poe, what are you doing?you’re like Chiz Escudero, what???you’re both tamad!

  • BonnieBailey9

    Yan ang hindi ko maintindihan sa mga kandidato na yan, tamad mangampanya, sabagay wala din boboto sa inyo, tulad ni chiz na walang kakawenta kwenta.

    the making of a TRAPO….

    Grace Llamanzares is always playing safe, like what a trapo normally and habitually does…..

  • Maitum

    She could have had my vote. For these, she lost one.

  • filipinaskoh

    Make up your mind! Where your allegiance should be, there you should stay.
    UNA and TEAM PINOY are now starting to draw the line.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GZZ67F7G4MHK2K5SJHN4EJKN3M erica

    Naku pwede palang kapatid nya sa ina ang mag campaign para sa kanya? Pwede rin palang mamangja sa 2 ilog? Nagsisiguro? Wag iboto yan dahil siguradong walang gagawin yan kundi mag balimbing din. 

    • lolo_Jose

      AY ano ibig mong sabihin apo? Si Sheryl at Grace magkapatid ke Rosemarie?
      Sus Ina ng awa, dalaga si Rositik ng makuha ni Rikitik apo….

  • Arnaldo Lagazon

    Anong tawag sa mga taong ganyan? DOBLE KARA ba? Nag-uumpisa palang TRAPO NA!

    • Noel

      Alisin ang pangalang POE kay Grace at basura lang siya.

  • bugoybanggers

    Ako manonood talaga ako kasi ang daming ARTISTA yehayyyy!! Iyan ang buhay Pilipino! Baw. Abangan na lang sa eleksyon..hehehehhe.

  • Arnaldo Lagazon

    Kung mas gusto mo sa Team PNOY eh di sabihan mo ang mga taga-UNA. Pinilipit ba
     ang kamay mo para sumama sa kanila?

  • Noel

    DOBLE CARA !

  • speaksoftlylove

    Sorry to be candid about it but Grace Lamanzares is an epitome of a political whore.

  • Garibaldi_II

    Now you know Ms Poe, politics is not everyone’s playground. You gave up your strength (uninvolved in transactional politics) for a weakness (perceived as a TRAPO at this early in your campaign). You should know the original – YOU –  is irreplaceable by the sequel – Cheryl Cruz. Be your original self. Choose one and only one party affiliation to show your sincerity and loyalty.

  • jjammess

    She lost my vote too. So disappointed she used to be d number 1 senator I’m voting. But this kind of behavior is unacceptable. Politicians use to jump from 1 party to another and we call it balimbing now we have worse.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

    PRINCIPLED POLITICS is what this country needs. NO TO LEGARDA, LLAMANZARES and ESCUDERO……

    Bakit ba naging senatorial candiadte si Grace Poe? Common pa man din! Basta anak (ampon) ng sikat na artista ay pwede na pala.

  • superlucky2

    Fernando Pwee. Huwag iboto ang anak ni Pando. Wala namnan itong alam. Huwag iboto ang mga taga Showbiz. Palpak

    • tagatabas

       Tumingin ka sa salamin bago ka magsalita. ( Fernando Pwee ) Ikaw sino ka at ano ka sa lipunan. May nagawa ka na bang mabuti o puro ka lang reklamo at yabang sa katawan. Ikaw ano ang alam mo? Pwede ka ba sa senado?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

        kailangan bang kasing sikat mo si Pardo Poe o isa ka ring senatoriable para makapag-komento? Sa tingin ko, TAX PAYER lang naman yang si superlucky2 na katulad ko…..duh

      • superlucky2

        Mamulat kana tagatabas. Be matured enough. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_L7PILUDK6IPFGJLJNCM2IROCRY Albin

    Sino kaya ang mas unang kakanta ng “Mr Dream Boy”? Si Grace, o si Sheryl?

  • XY ZEE

    Magbabayad lang ng artista…
    yung laos pa ang pinili.

    • tagatabas

      Pro Bono yun.

  • indiosbravos2002

    The publicists of UNA in this site should stop hitting on Poe. Si Erap naman yong makulit na gustong kumuha sa kanya to court the FPJ supporters and not the other way around.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

      yon na nga eh, kung may PRINSIPYO nga si Llamanzares, bakit nagpadala sa bola at “pangungulit” ni erapskie?

  • Connie Mri

    Grace is intelligent & smart like her biological dad!  Let’s vote Grace & campaign for her! 
    She’s very much better than Bongbong, Imee & Irene.  Of course walang panama sila 
    Bong Revilla at Lito Lapid.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

      Is her playing safe an indication of her being “intelligent and smart”? But where is her principle?

    • carlos_premacio

      Ano bang nagawa niya to prove na she’s intelligent to become a Senator of the Republic. If she’s running to prove to the country that she’s smarter than Lapid or Revilla, then it shows she’s more of like them and of course her showbiz father. Grace Poe? Never in my ballot. Can’t answer: Sino siya? 

    • indiosbravos2002

      Yes, she is smart because her biological dad is not FPJ. If it was FPJ, goodluck sa tin lahat. Parang si Jingggoy d’ unggoy lang sya nyan.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/RNORXCUCTB4CBN2LDLQRJTGQJE taga-masid

    ATTENTION: SUSAN ROCES / GRACE POE, hindi na ninyo kailangan na may mag-represent sa iyo (grace poe) sa political rally ng UNA – dahil hindi ito maiibigan o’ hindi magugustohan ng taumbayan = ang iisipin namin – walang kang paninindigan at na mamangka ka sa dalawang ilog, hindi ka tiyak sa iyong kandidatura. You have doubted your own wisdom that you will win this election. may panahon ka pa na huwag ng magpadala na representive sa UNA political rally sa cebu city – pag-nagpadala ka grace, maaaring ikatalo mo ito.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/5IWAARHMCGR4EYINTPSATBTJDQ bert

      I totally agree ” taga-masid “, it’s either you are with Pnoy or UNA, either black or white! no offense to Binay. simula pa lang, para ka ng balimbing agad, yun nga..namamangka sa dalwang ilog..you have to choose which one should you depend on based on your personal principles and platforms.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

        tama ka tukayo……

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5IWAARHMCGR4EYINTPSATBTJDQ bert

    what if there will come a time that both parties will have some opposing views on a certain national issue/s, where will Grace Poe stand now?!?…will she say – no comment or abstain then? 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_L7PILUDK6IPFGJLJNCM2IROCRY Albin

      She will stand daw as PG – parentalguidance

  • joeybg

    Two Faces….. disGrace.

    misguided Poe in political arena, namamangka sa dalawang ilog, hindi welcome sa panlasa ng mga pinoy, revised your political strategy para makahabol ka kay Nancy.

  • sam_aquino

    had you NOT send a representative to UNA, you would have my vote…

    only proved you have no principle…  sorry grace, :(  

  • dequis

    kasalanan ng mga UNA kumuha ng artistang na sa mga kandidato ng Pres. Noy ang damdamin.

  • delia kelly

    I am very disappointed with Poe. I thought that she is with team P noy . She did not even wear yellow in the rally. Mukhang Hindi pa nga na all kagaya na siya ni Legarda at ni Escudero mga Balimbing.

  • http://twitter.com/mahjong2011 Tatyana

    What kind of deal is that?  She is neither here or there.  Belong to one party and focus
    on it.

    Grace, how’s your mom, Rosemarie Sonora????……

  • rinom

    bawal ang mamangka sa dalawang ilog.

    LINGAW-LINGAW LANG ANG UNA. WALAY PLATAFORMA.  
    DILI LAHI KUNO ANG UNA SA KANG PNOY PANGGAMHANAN. NGANONG MAGPABOTAR PA MAN KUNG PAREHAS RA. PANAPI DALANG PANGILAD ( PDP )

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HOCSZLQBWVGXXI2NZJ2P7LMPHA Leond Yobar

    In Mindanao those who are endorsed by Erap or under UNA will be a kiss of death for the bangsmoro. I can smell the try 10-2 with them in favor of LP.
