BATANGAS CITY, Philippines—Sen. Francis Escudero said Wednesday he did not know that common candidates who could not make it to the United Nationalist Alliance’s proclamation rally in Cebu on Tuesday could send representatives to the kick-off activity.

Escudero gave the explanation because his absence from UNA’s rally was made more conspicuous by the presence of representatives sent by Loren Legarda and Grace Poe, both of whom, like Escudero, are candidates on both the administration PNoy Team and UNA senatorial slates.

“I didn’t know one could send representatives,” said Escudero, who returned from vacation just before the start of the official campaign period on Tuesday.

Trying to make light of the situation, Escudero said he no longer had a father while his eldest child was still too young at five years old to speak for him at the UNA  rally.

Legarda sent her father while Poe sent a child.

All three common candidates opted to attend the administration coalition’s proclamation rally at Plaza Miranda in Manila instead of UNA rally in Cebu.

“The campaign has just started. Sooner or later, we’ll also be together in one place,” Escudero said.

Escudero would not comment on remarks attributed to the UNA camp that he might be dropped from the UNA lineup.

    He was blind before and now he see.It takes one mistake to know what it means to be left alone.

  • filipinaskoh

    I would suggest with these three common candidates.

    It would be better to be just a candidate of just one team rather than be in two teams. Definitely, as the election comes near the DISTINCTION between these two teams will  become PROMINENT. 
     
    UNA is the CORRUPT group portraying as the BEST when the mere fact it is the WORST. 

    MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!

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

      If UNA is the CORRUPT group portraying as the BEST when the mere fact it is the WORST, then LP is what?

    At may balak ka palang magpadala ng representative sa UNA rally? Matitiis mong mamantsahan ng virus ni enrile, binay at erap? Wag ka ng magpapadala, magkakaron ka lang ng utang na loob sa mga tinamaan na mga trapo at kawatan na mga yan.
