UNA told: Don’t begrudge common bets in LP rallies

MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Franklin Drilon called on the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) to stop complaining about the common candidates who have so far exclusively shown up in Team PNoy rallies and instead present what it has to offer to the electorate after the May 2013 elections.

“UNA should stop whining and complaining about the failure of its three adopted candidates to attend their rallies,” said Drilon, campaign manager of the administration ticket.

“They should instead present their platform of governance and what they have done to deserve the people’s mandate,” he added.

Drilon made the remarks amid reports that the UNA planned to drop common candidates Senators Francis Escudero and Loren Legarda and former Movie Review Board chair Grace Poe due to their repeated failure to show up in UNA sorties.

All three showed up at the Team PNoy proclamation rally led by no less than President Benigno Aquino III at the Plaza Miranda on Tuesday.

The UNA held its kick-off rally on the same day in Cebu City, where Legarda and Poe sent representatives.

Marikina Rep. Miro Quimbo, Team PNoy spokesperson, challenged UNA leaders to shut up and instead go to the Commission on Elections if they have legitimate complaints.

“Team PNoy will stand or fall on the basis of its anticorruption and antipoverty platform,” Quimbo said.

“Fighting corruption will make more funds available for basic services and vital infrastructure projects that will in turn raise the living standards and reduce the number of poor Filipinos,” he added.

    sir frank drilon, sa totoo lang, walang platform ang UNA.  kasi kung meron man eh matagal nang naka-publish.  ride lang ang UNA sa platform ni pnoy/liberal party.  MALAKI ANG BUNGANGA WALANG LAMAN ANG ULO. PURO FORMA!!!

       Bakit may platform ba ang Team Banoy? Parepareho lang sila.

      Kaya nga walang direksyon yang sangandaan ni Pnoy dahil walang roadmap.

      Tumigil ka nga dyan chachapatusin na kita.

    “Team PNoy will stand or fall on the basis of its anti-corruption and antipoverty platform,” Quimbo said…. 
    Isa pa itong sinungaling na Quimbo.  Antti-corruption? Utuin mo lelang mo! Talamak pa rin ang korapsyon pero ano ginagawa nyo?? Pinoprotektahan nyo pa ang mga kurakot na kapartido nyo.. Kapal din ng mukha nito. 

    Anti-Poverty?? Sinungaling! Bulaan! Mas lalong dumami ang mahihirap di ba??

    Mga tanga at sipsip sa partido nyo lang ang magsasabi na anti-corruption at anti-poverty kayo…

    Kayo mismo sa kongreso ninanakaw nyo kaban ng bayan.. mga bulsa nyo lang ang nakikinabang sa PORK BARREL. Mas masahol ang korapsyon ngayon.. yun nga lang pinagtatakpan nyong mga magkakaalyado.

    Kawawang Pilipino at Pilipinas.. napapaikot ng mga kalahi ni LOLONG…

      Well kaya na nang Team PNoy yan lalo na sa Maguindanao and Sultan Kudarat. Sure its 12-0 for LP coalition. With the MILF as its armies, walang boto na makukuha ang opposition sa lugar. History repeats itself. In my case I will vote only for two candidate, Migz and Koko who are from opposite parties representing Mindanao. However, I’d like to hear from Koko how he will help the island. I guess, he is still bitter sa pagkatalo niya sa Cagayan de Oro City, his hometown. I would also like to know kung registered voter pa si Koko sa CDO, what I am sure is that Migz is registered in Bukidnon.

      • etomacq

        Korek.  Kung si GMA may Ampatuan, Si Noynoy may MILF na may Ampatuan pa! Baka nga 13-0 pa resulta dyan…

    Si pork chop talaga, desperadong payaso. Akala mo everything is fine in Team Banoy. Ang dami na ngang ibang kandidato sa kanila na naiinis na. Pumapel lang yang tatlong political whores sa rally nila sa Plaza Miranda pero di din naman sumasama sa campaign sorties nila, Kaya nga biglang kambyo ng tono si erap e. Hayun kanyakanyang lakad ang mga hita, pasaway talaga itong si Frank. Palitan mo na yang pangalan mo at hindi bagay.

    • etomacq

      Wala naman talagang nagawa maayos ang BULUGAN na yan..

    UNA is like a child whining and griping over the lost of his or her prized candy!

    The truth of the matter is that UNA is just banking on the popularity of its 3 guest candidates and hoping that the popularity of the 3 might rub on the rest of its own rotten candidates.
