MANILA, Philippines—The plan of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) to drop common senatorial bets Grace Poe and Senators Francis Escudero and Loren Legarda was not yet final, former President Joseph Estrada said Friday.

In an interview at the signing of an election covenant organized by the Commission on Elections by local candidates in Manila, Estrada said the decision to drop the three candidates will come from the three bigwigs of UNA, namely Vice-President Jejomar Binay, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and him.

Estrada was also asked up to when the UNA leadership would tolerate the common bets’ failure to attend their campaign sortie.

Patience tested

“We cannot say how long we can tolerate their nonattendance of our campaign sorties, but decision will be made soon,” he replied.

As of this time, he said, no decision on the fate of the three common bets have been made, but if ever this will come from the three acknowledged UNA leaders.

“The three of us have to discuss their possible exclusion from the UNA slate,” Estrada said.

Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco UNA campaign manager had earlier said that Poe, Escudero and Legarda should decide whether they would exclusively campaign for Liberal Party and not join UNA rallies.

    SA JUNE 12, 2013 ILALABAS ANG DESISYON TO DROP OR NOT. INDEPENDENCE DAY…

    Susmaryahosep! Obvious naman na di puwedeng mag-attend nang dalawang campaign sorties ang mga “common candidates” dahil iisa ang katawan nila. Dapat naisip n’yo na ito bago nag-desisyon na magkaroon ng common candidate(s). Eh kaso, palibhasa bobo, hihintayin pang magka-problema bago gagawa nang palusot! Bakit kasi biglang nauso ang “common candidate”? Wala na bang matalino at matinong Pilipino na puwedeng piliin para mabuo ang line-up? Talaga bang ang serbisyo publiko ay eksklusibo na para sa miyembro nang Political Dynasty? Pasama nang pasama ang takbo nang politika sa bansa. Dahil sa political dynasty, di na pumipili ng kakandidatong “the best and the brightest”. Basta kapamilya at kasama sa pandarambong, puwede na! Kawawa naman kami!

    Empty threat. Halatang- halata naman. UNA will lose more if they drop the 3 adopted candidates.

  • pipsirho

    Why the fuss about the three “guest candidates”? Is this the ONLY ISSUE about this STUPID campaign? PIGS => Politicians Insatiably Gorging Slop; SLOP in the form of Power, Public Funds, Dirty Money, Graft, Corruption, Influence Peddling, SHAMELESSNESS, DO NOT really have SUBSTANTIVE ISSUES to present to the Filipino voters because they ONLY have their OWN PERSONAL INTEREST in mind!!! As simple as that!!!

    PIGS will always be PIGS, and will always be TRUE TO THEIR NATURE!!!

    Why it takes so long to decide when to drop these three candidates  if the three Kings (self proclaim kingkoy) really meant what they had said they can take action with out so many but…etc.. UNA needs these three highly popular candidates to attract more undecided voters in their sorties.

    Alam ng tatlong mokong (Estrada, Binay, Enrile) na mas kawalan sa kanila ung 3 kandidato, ayaw lang ipahalata. Pag dating ng halalan bagsak lahat ng kandidato ng UNA dahil sa tatlong mokong na ito.

  • ARIKUTIK

    Kung ang plataporma ng UNA ay naka salalay sa tatlong balimbing. Ang UNA party ay walang sariling paninindigan. Mga walang sariling pag iisip, hindi dapat iboto ang “PARTY na WALANG UTAK”. Hoy UNA, sumiksik kayo sa ilalim ng palda ni Grace para hindi na kayo makita, nya….hahaha……
