MANILA, Philippines—”Mga Pilipinong tunay na tuwid sa daang matuwid [Filipinos who truly walk in the right path].”

This was how President Benigno Aquino III described on Tuesday the 12 senatorial candidates of Team Pnoy when he formally endorsed them during their proclamation rally at the Plaza Miranda in Quiapo, Manila.

“Ngayong gabi, malinaw kung nasaang panig ang labindalawang kasama natin sa entablado. Nagmula man sa iba’t ibang partido’t samahan, katulad natin silang bukas ang puso’t isip na mag ambag para sa pinakamainam na solusyon,” Aquino said.

“Sama sama po nating salubungin ang Team Pnoy: mga Pilipinong tunay na tuwid sa daang matuwid,” he said, and introduced the candidates one by one.

The 12 who were all present were Aurora Representative Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, Bam Aquino, Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, and former Akbayan Representative Risa Hontiveros, Senator Loren Legarda, former Senators Jamby Madrigal and Ramon Magsaysay, Senator Aquilino “Koko”Pimentel III,  Grace Poe, Senator Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV, and former Las Piñas Representative Cynthia Villar.

Aquino assured the public that the candidates of Team Pnoy will not steal and will not turn their backs on the people.

“Kumpleto silang tumitindig dito sa Plaza Miranda, sa dambana ng demokrasya’t kalayaan bilang tanda ng kanilang panata sa mamamayan: Hindi sila magnanakaw, hindi nila ipagkakanulo ang tiwala ng sambayanan, at lagi nilang isasaalang-alang ang inyong kapakanan,” he said.

“Nanunumpa ang buong Team Pnoy na iisa lamang ang kanilang pinapanigan: Sa panig ng tapat na pamahalaan. Sa panig ng tuwid na daan. At syempre, sa panig ninyo–ang nag iisa naming mga Boss–ang taumbayan,” the President added.

Aside from the President, Team Pnoy also got a boost from celebrities, who endorsed their senatorial bid either in flesh or through a taped message.

Celebrity couples Aga Muhlach and wife Charlene; and Richard Gomez and wife, Congresswoman Lucy Torres personally endorsed the candidates while singers Dingdong Avanzado, Cookie Chua and Noel Cabangon performed during the rally.

Meanwhile, some candidates turned to their celebrity endorsers who introduced them on stage through audio visual presentation.

A voice of veteran actress of Susan Roces, was aired to introduce her daughter, Grace Poe, while singer-actress Sarah Geronimo and actor Coco Martin also had a recorded AVP for Angara.

Poe also repeatedly mentioned the name of her late father, Fernando Poe Jr., as she expressed her desire to continue his legacy.

Fernando Poe Jr. ran but lost to then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2004.

Some senatorial bets also tried to crack a joke or used a gimmickry just to get the attention of the audience.

“Ako po si Grace Poe, ang pinakamagalang na kandidato…” she said, noting how her last name was often being used by Filipinos as a sign of courtesy.

Cayetano wore a red glove to show that he would continue his fight against corruption if elected again in the Senate.

  • AgapitoBagumbayan

    While I agree that LP and UNA both have flaws in their Senatorial line-ups, the fact is we don’t have any choice. And should we decide to exercise our right, please, choose the lesser evil.

    For once, be smart, wag po tayong maging UNA sa katangahan.

    • Concur_Dissent

      Anyone except – Enrile, Binay, Ejercito, Maceda and Honasan!!

  • Simplify1

    Proof that PNoy’s “tuwid sa daang matuwid” is working:

    1. International credit rating agencies i.e. Standard and Poor’s, have elevated the Philippines’ credit ratings by at least 3 levels higher (from almost junk bond rating status to investment grade levels)

    2.  Philippine stock exchanges are at record high levels.

    3.  MILF peace initiatives are working and well on its way to lasting peace in Mindanao

    4.  Our PESO is very strong against the DOLLAR

    5.  The World Bank has consistently mentioned the Philippines as one of the few economies that are relatively doing very well compared with developed and industrialized countries

    ALL THE ABOVE AND SO MUCH MORE COMPLETED ONLY WITHIN THE LAST 3 YEARS!  JUST IMAGINE 3 MORE YEARS OF PNOY POWER WITH THE SUPPORT OF A SENATE HAND PICKED BY PNOY HIMSELF? SKY IS THE LIMIT!

    PNOY HAS ALREADY PROVEN THESE LAST 3 YEARS THAT HE CAN BE AN EFFECTIVE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, LET’S SUPPORT PNOY ALL THE WAY BY VOTING STRAIGHT PNOY TEAM!

        Daang matuwid? Magkano hinihingi noon ng mga Cojuangco sa gobyerno? 20 billion . Ibibigay nila sa mga magsasaka ang lupa sa Hacienda Luisita pero babayaran sila ng gobyerno. Ayaw ng gobyerno ni Arroyo na magbayad. 20 BILLION ANG hinihinging kapalit ng pamimigay ng lupa. Ngayon na Presidente na si Aquino pwede nyang ibigay sa mga Cojuangco ang kahit pa 50 billion dahil may pork barrel nga na 60 billion a year ang isang Pangulo.gets mo? Easy lang ang 50 billion .

    • RachelleDomingo

      i think you only want to focus on the bad.. and when i mean bad i mean things you just simply hear and instantly believing.. you say the aquinos are greedy but our history does not. what about our president and bam you say? well you see our president every where :) bam has established business development for the poor.. if i recall correctly there is actually one who is richer than him now :P and just like legarda you say? hmmm well if you didnt know.. loren has been in NPC since 2007 :) what about now you say? well shes a Guest candidate.. how would you act in a house where you are a guest hmmm?

        Wow sa hinaba haba ng reply ko, ganun nila kabilis tinanggal. All I said is that ndi lng po ABS CBN ang may kopya ng history ng mga Aquino.. Pwede rin nman itype ang word na oppression sa tabi ng word na Aquino. I also mentioned on how nagpalipat lipat si Loren at ung mala artista nyang pagiyak nung impeachment ni Erap. I think kaya binura ung last comment ko is because I called her a political wh$re.. baka bawal.. BAM, nahihiya nman Si Lolong sa inyo, malamang kung walang minimum age requirement, eh pati si Bimbi gawin nyo ng congressman. Uy si Josh malapit na, sa nyo sa balak ilagay?

        your basis of arguments is really funny.. because well you didnt really answer anything i asked you :) it seems you just focus on what you want. in other words all your here to do is destroy images of people and i can tell you REALLY love ABS CBN. you keep using that all the time. if you have nothing good to say then try to refrain from saying anything or actually coming out and attacking people. you may have explianed your “attacks” further but you still havent really answered my questions :)

        What’s funny is ur inability to read between the lines… You only focus on things that you want to hear which is a typical trait of a noytard.

      lagi kong naririnig ang pagbabago, hala ano ang nabago? magpunta ka sa mga agencia ng gobyerno, kung walang lagay di aandar ang papeles. Ano na ba ang naumpisahang ginawa ni BS aquino sa Pinas? ang mga halaga ng bilihin, naku saksakan ng mahal, lalo ang pagkain. Kapag kaalyado, tahimik. Kapag kalaban, siguradong nasa speech. Masarap ang FOI para mabulgar and yaman ni BS aquino ngayon. Puro tahimik. Noong panahon ni GMA,lagi siyang kinakalaban ng mga kalaban niya, esp ang presidente mo dahil pumanig sa mga farmers ng Hacienda Luisita.

Sila mismo nag legalized sa pagnanakaw na yan by hiding it under pork barrel, presidential pork, presidential  social fund, MOOE, mga travel expenses etc. Yon lahat na yan ay diretso  sa kanilang bulsa. Bakit ba sila naging milyonaryo samantalang  tig 60 thousand lang ang sweldo nila officially? Tingnan mo si Trillantes, noong nangampanya siya ang declared assets niya ay 400 thousand lang. At sinabi na hindi siya mangurakot Ngayon, ilang milyon na ang  saln niya at may mga condo units pa.bwahahaha. Di ba bawat committee member sa senado ay may millions  na suhol or MOOE. In the end tayong mga taxpayers ang nagpapataba sa kanilang tiyan at wala namang isang batas naipasa…even in 12 years. hahahaha.

  • luvphilippines

    The vast majority of Filipinos worldwide want the incorruptible President Aquino to succeed. His honesty and good governance has made a big difference in just two years and a half. We want his candidates to win to help him fully implement all his plans and further institutionalize reforms for good governance. Go go go Team PNoy!!

  • AllaMo

    jamby madrigal, bam aquino, antonio trillanes, matuwid na daan? Omit these three, and, maybe…

    • FORTHE GOOD

      Check out Benigno “Bam” Aquino – College Valedictorian, UN awardee,
      Outstanding Youth as recognized by the World Economic Forum, one of the
      Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) of the Philippines, champion of social
      entrepreneurship even in his private capacity, helping thousands of poor families
      start their own livelihood through the Hapinoy program.

      Hontiveros is new blood. Hontiveros is not from a political family. She sponsored the cheaper medicines law, among others. Check her out.

      Jamby Madrigal – unang astig senator na kumalaban ng harapan kay enrile sa senado. Madrigal exposed enriles illegal logging connections. Check her track record.

      Trillanes – filed the most number of bills as senator even while he was still in detention. Check his track record.

      • AllaMo

        If bam is so good in the private sector, he should stay there, continue to be most effective – as well as not achieve his Peter Principle. Thus, he ought to not run, and do his unselfish share to rid the country of political dynasties.

        For the paving of the tuwid na daan, please also include tingting, and others in the junk-list. 

      • PinoyPower1

         Bam can do a lot more and faster if he is elected. He can legislate laws to institutionalize support for stronger micro enterprises and entrepreneurial advocacies. He will be the voice of the youth in the senate.

      • AllaMo

        Yeah, right. While, inadvertently, institutionalizing dynasties – totally against the Constitution; while swearing (two-facedly) to the same. Save us from our saviours, please.

  • superpilipinas

    NO to Team PNoy. They are against transparency.

    They hide corruption by not prioritizing the FOI bill.

    It is the demand of all Filipinos…..except…..the corrupt.

    LP used RH bill to sidetrack FOI. Expect Team PNoy to use Divorce bill to distract people’s attention. You already heard Belmonte bring out Divorce bill right after RH bill was passed. It’s a lame modus operandi.

    If you want FOI, don’t vote for Team PNoy.

    Don’t vote for UNA, NP, NPC, Lakas. These are full of TRAPOS, Political Dynasties, and Showbiz personalities. They are baaaddd for the Philippines.

    Vote for independents and technical professionals with proven achievement experience. If you can’t find any, then don’t vote.

    sa kangkungan ang kalalagyan ng Pilipino. Choose your canditates wisely, pag-aralan po nating mabuti ang bawat kandidato kung may maitutulong talaga sa bayan. May mga iba pang senatorial candidates na hindi UNA or LP members na pwedeng pagpilian. DAPAT TAMA ang kandidatong iboboto natin.

  • Maldi2

    We’re supposed to have a working president on important issues, eradicating poverty and creation of more jobs, and not a president who waste time campaigning.

    With his active involvement on campaign, this will only show that the LP lineup is weak that needs endorsement all the time by a sitting president.  Unfortunately, we have a president whose approval ratings is diminishing!  He can fool the MASA once, but not all the time. Gising at alam na ng MASA ang mga pambobola ni Panot!  What a pity!

    A vote for the candidates of the administration is a vote to sustain good governance and continued reforms in government.

    Better to have a pro-PNoy senate than a pro-erap-binay-enrile senate. Una’s 3 kings of trapo politics are simply not trustworthy.

    • superpilipinas

      No.

      Can’t sustain good governance without transparency.

      This administration does not want FOI for transparency. It wants to hide corruption.

      Team PNoy is just as bad as UNA.

      • PinoyPower1

        PNoy has regular press conferences, unlike during arroyo’s time. PNoy even answers questions in ambush interviews, not during 9 years of arroyo. All agencies especially the Budget Department have websites that contain all their programs, budget, biddings, etc.

        Any particular item you want to know?

        FOI is really needed if the president is like marcos the dictator or corrupt like arroyo and estrada.

        Nevertheless, I have no doubt, FOI will become a law in the hands of PNoy before the end of his term. It can be refiled in the next congress. Just like the sin tax, RH, marcos compensation bills, that were refiled and became laws.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_D3LDMMAKC6UDQLDVFP2DGSJBXY Jezzrel

        Then he shouldn’t had promised that FOI bill if that’s his reasoning.

  • PinoyPower1

    Never to United Nakaw Alliance! My whole family will vote for the candidates selected and endorsed by President Aquino. We will campaign for Team PNoy!

    UNA & LP  are our hopeless candidates. they will not pass the FOI bill, they are trapos and dynasties whose main goal is to enrich themselves out of people’s money.

  • disqusted0fu

    BS Aquino really has a lot of BS in him. Majority of what’s coming out of his mouth are BS since they are very rarely realized. The LPs team name alone already says a lot about their candidates. This star studded cast would be better off in the showbiz industry than in politics, same as their endorser, showbiz President Pnoy.

    “Cayetano wore a red glove to show that he would continue his fight against corruption if elected again in the Senate.”
    Sen. Cayetano, if you really wanted to fight corruption, why speak up only after the unequal sharing of bonuses among you by the Senate President? You should not keep quiet on that practice if you deemed to be a corrupt practices. 

    You had lost your credibility as a public servant. I will not vote for you again, 100 of my relatives and friends…
