Unlike rival party, UNA won’t bash Arroyo

By |


MANILA, Philippines—The Liberal Party’s top honcho may be fond of criticizing former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, but members of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) think there are better things to discuss in campaign sorties.

The UNA members are resuming their group sorties this week with their first stop in Pampanga, the bailiwick of the detained former president, but don’t expect UNA to attack her.

During the proclamation of Team PNoy candidates at Plaza Miranda last week, President Aquino again enumerated the controversies that hounded his predecessor, and said that her minions were still in power.

UNA senatorial candidate JV Estrada said there was no need to keep harping against Arroyo. It would be better if campaigns were issue-based, he said.

“We focus on issues. GMA [the former President’s initials) is a nonfactor. What I’m saying is she’s a nonfactor in what’s happening in our country,” Estrada said in a phone interview.

But he said he believed that Arroyo should be prosecuted posthaste along with her cohorts, although he noted that the cases filed against her by the present administration were being dismissed.

Arroyo replaced Estrada’s father, deposed President Joseph Estrada, after the latter fled Malacañang after a people power revolt cut short his administration.

3 years under Aquino

Another UNA senatorial candidate, Mitos Magsaysay, on Monday said people would rather hear about how officials could help in their day-to-day problems, and resolve issues plaguing the country.

“How will it help people if you keep on hitting GMA? We’re three years into the Aquino administration,” Magsaysay, who used to be Arroyo’s party mate in Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats, said in a phone inteview.

Magsaysay also noted an earlier statement by UNA campaign manager Toby Tiangco, who said that Arroyo’s former allies were with the LP now.

In an earlier interview, Magsaysay said the LP’s constant criticism of the former president could backfire. She pointed out that many local government officials now aligned with Aquino used to be with Arroyo.

“GMA gave a lot of assistance, support and goodwill to them to develop their municipalities and provinces. How about the Liberal Party? What kind of help has it given to the LGUs and to the provinces?” she said.

She also said UNA’s leaders, Vice President Jejomar Binay, Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, had developed plenty of goodwill with local officials due to their long years of public service.

    I have been observing  the Liberal party specially  with this President.  He has been in power for three years.So why is it he still  had to attack the former President.Hindi ba  dapat  he needs  to focus on how he manage the Country? What the heck?  Cases  against the former President had been dismissed one by one. Itong natitira, wala po silang solid na ebidensya at  ang kanilang testigo ay palpak! It is not that I   defended the former Prsident but  PLEASE LANG ABNOY,
     ENOUGH   IS  ENOUGH ALREADY !  Mismong  ang sarili mong  ina-appoint na Ombudsaman na si Conchita Carpio Morales ay nagsasabing  WALA PONG  ANOMALY AT EBIDENSYA, so  ano ba? Not all Filipino people are  stupid  to  keep  believing you at  makikinig.Dapat  you need to  discuss, is the present problem at anong iyong magagawa. Past is past.  Aquino, FACE THE MUSIC NOW.  DAHIL SINASABI MONG KAMING MGA  MAMAMAYAN AY ANG IYONG  BOSS  pwes, SASABIHIN KO SA IYO,  STOP MALIGNING PEOPLE  SPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE.Liberal Party, focus on the present problem of the Filipino people, POVERTY;NO JOBS  and  Education are the most  important issues here NOT  WHAT GMA  HAD DONE  THREE YEARS AGO? oKAY ?

Eh 9 na taong pangungurakot ang panggagahasa ng amo mong uggok sa ating bansa. yong mga nadismiss na mga “kaso” daw nya, eh mga kasabwat naman nya ang nag-file noon na alam naman na mahina ang ebidensya. Kaya nga sya bilanggo kasi di nya mapatunayan na wala syang kasalanan. Yong boss ng presidente ay mamamayang bomoto sa kanya. definitely, hindi ikaw yon at hindi ang amo mong magnanakaw!

      • jhobitz

        Where is your logic guy? Hindi mo yata alam kung anong reayalidad na sitwasyon ng pinas ngayon, si abnoy pinapalabas nilang malinis ang kanilang pamumuno, just looking back his allies now were all rubbies by the former president because most of them wanted to become leader in grafting and corrupting powers like drilon and roxas; acosta who had now pending case in ombudsman, di mo ba alam ya? Magbasa ka muna ha ng history from his mom cory down to present admin walang iba kung di ang Abnoy. Lol

        I don’t like to reread history, nasusuka lang ako kung nababasa ko ulit ang nakaraan lalo na noong last 11 years. Mukhang history will repeat itself with UNA’s lineup and brand of politics. Rubbies are not enough, they will steal our gold reserves as well.

         Would you want a president who’s legacy is to blame his predecessor as the reason for all the ills of the country,

        Or would you have a president who was able to look past it, and develop the country as it should in the world arena?

        The courts can handle GMA, as it should. The president can only criticize.

        I would not even compare the 2 presidents. I just would like to see new infra built in this administration’s time. The population grows fast here in M.Mla, and pretty soon it will be traffic all over again. I would love to see his forward solution to the problem, not his criticism of the past (of which AGAIN, he can do nothing, since it is already in the courts.)

        Reminds me of the time when Cory didn’t have a solution for the worsening electricity crisis at her time. Its legacy is that the country’s electricity cost is higher than ALL others in the region, even higher than and industrialized country as japan.

      • panaloangtotoo2

        Pinaalala lang po ng Presidente ang mga kabaluharaan ng ugok mong idolo. Despite the worst state of the nation left by magnanakaw na Aroy-ko, the president has done tremendous lots to invigorate the sick man of asia! gets mo?

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        I can deal with a reminder of how GMA is, as you say bulok. BUT DO I NEED A CONSTANT REMINDER? I don’t think so.

        Can he do anything more than what he already did against GMA? Can YOU do anything more than what PNoy has already done?

        So kung wala, then I suggest you tell your president to focus on other things and NOT ON WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE TOO OFTEN.

        O baka naman walang saysay ang bulok mong idolo kung wala si GMA?

        Perhaps his very existance has no meaning if there is no black mark to compare it to?

        You think?

        “done tremendous lots to invigorate the sick man of asia!”

        Please don’t tell me na yung upsurge ng stock market ng buong mundo, and so, the philippines rises on the upsurge was all due to PNoy? If that is the case, then niloloko mo lang kami, and we don’t buy it.

    UNA just realized that if they bash gma they are likewise bashing themselves. Majority of these UNA candidates benefitted much from the corrupt gma. These UNA bandits are trapos and cannot be relied upon to really provide help in bringing the Philippines out of poverty. What they want is to enrich themselves further at the expense of the suffering Filipino people. Let us not be fooled by these thieves again and learn from our previous mistakes of electing them into office.

  • UrHONOR

    Kapag ang UNA ang nanalo sa halalang ito,
    Si BNay ay t’yak na tatakbo sa pagka-pangulo.
    “Si PNoy ay naaring nahalal sa ganung pwesto,
    Aba, ang magandang tanong ay, Bakit hindi ako?”

    Sa UNAng tingin, mamamalas ay medyo madilim,
    Pagsipat kay BNay ay hindi madaling gawain.
    Bukod sa siya ay maigsi, kutis nya ay maitim,
    Suot na puti at ngiti, doon siya mapapansin.

    Malayo-layo na din naman ang kanyang narating,
    Tinahak niyang landas na hitik sa suliranin.
    Mulang Mayor ng Makati na kanyang napabuti,
    Hanggang sa siya ngayon ay naging Bise-Presidente.

    Mataas-taas na din naman ang kanyang pag-angat,
    Lahat ng hirap at pasakit ay kanyang kinagat,
    Pinunlang tiyaga, tapang, “talino’t” pagiging tapat,
    Siya ngayo’y tinatasang isang bilyonaryong big $hot.

    Kung bakit itong si Jojo BNay ay napasangkot,
    Sa bilang ng dalawang batikang mga kurakot.
    Ang isa ay ex-convict, pangalawa ay berdugo,
    3 Kings ang pagkilala’t tawag sa kanilang tatlo.

    Sa ‘sang masusing pagsusuri, bakit nga ba’t hindi,
    Tatlong mago’y parehong pinagmulang binhi.
    Datirati’y walang-wala, nagmula doon sila,
    Ngayo’y may kaharian bawat isa sa kanila.

    Bawat isa sa kanila ngayo’y may sinusulong,
    Mga anak na hinanda para maging senatong.
    I-adya mo po kami sa mga taong masama,
    Sa kanilang plano, ating bayan bigyan ng awa.

    Kung kaya’t huwag payagan, huwag hayaang pumayagpag,
    Bagwis ni BNay pagka-pangulo ang ina-atupag.
    Ang UNA ay ipanghuli sa halalang darating,
    Ang patuloy na pag-unlad ng bayan ay sagipin!

      Hindi kaya na ang tamang gawain ay kung may ebidensya, i file ang complaint.

      Hindi ba iyon din ang gagawin mo pag alam mo na may katiwaliaan sa isang pamumuno?  Hindi mo naman sasaktan yung tao na suspetsya mo na may katiwalian, sapagkat iyan ay krimen din laman.  Hindi mo gagawin ang paninirang puri sapagkat on the scheme of things, it still doesn’t solve the problem, diba?

      Hindi kaya na ang problema ay HINDI masusing pag hahanap ng ebidensya laban kay GMA, AT file lang ng file ng kaso na hindi air-tight? Gagawa ng mahinang kaso, tapos i bblame ang mga opposition for the failure of the prosecution of GMA?

      Hindi kaya nasa Administrasyon na ang lahat ng resources para ma imbestigahan ng mabuti si GMA, at di na kailangan mag insinuate na pabor o hindi pabor ang mga kandidato sa panig ni GMA?

      pero, will still have to check kung ano plataporma nya ngayon as compared when he ran last time. no such thing as permanence in politics.

      I still do not know his stand on some topics like the rh, whether he supports it or not. (if anyone can point articles on this, i would appreciate it)

      • abbaj

        i voted for gordon before but not this time. for associating himself to binay, enrile, at estrada, it only proves he has no principle. matakaw lang talaga sa pwesto. paiya-iyak pa yan nung palayasin ni estrada sa sbma ngayon kasama pa nya. what an unprincipled jackass this gordon is. iboboto ko si jc delos reyes na pamangkin nya. at least consistent yun sa mga plataporma ng partido nya.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        hmmmm. you put too much value in political parties. If it was like the US’ Democrat and Republican, which you can identify differences in terms of politics and beliefs on issues, I would agree.

        But not here where politicians use parties as only a vessel, and could switch parties anytime, be it the ruling popular party or the opposition party.

        JC delos reyes, I haven’t heard that name before, hmmmm. worth a look, thanks for the heads up!

        —From initial browsing there are some things we have common interests in like coop, and differences like ProLife -Christian support.

      • http://inquirer.net/ binaygulay

        Yeah, I can overlook the fence-hopping Gordon in lieu of his accomplishments and attitude. I think wala naman siyang choice kung hindi siya kinuha ni Pnoy eh. Kailangan lang. jya ng vessel for political survivability.

        Si Gordon lang talaga ang lead by example. SBMA, Department of Tourism, Red Cross. Lahat yan umunlad nung siya ang namahala. Kung nanalo sana siyang presidente (asa pa) angat na tayo ngayon. Walang maibabatong putik kay Gordon. We need a smart man in the Senate.

        Si JC delos Reyes hmm?.. Sabi niya kasi una niyang gagawin pag nanalo siya ay i-repeal ang RH law? Very counter-productive. Although panghatak lang siguro ng Catholic vote yun. But I guess still a better alternative to the trapos.

    Well, I guess UNA has a point to concentrate on issues that focuses only on the current state of the nation. It is doing well but they are right that LP members are mostly former allies of the Pandak party and are still doing the same thing on the ground hindi lang nabibigyan nang pansin dahil lahat nakatutok sa kay PNoy. We may have a high economic growth rate but it is not felt by the mass based since corruption is still the norm at the middle and lower level of the government units. It is the OFW remittances that makes our country moving on and good jobs in our country is very limited. Nakakulong na si Pandak, let us now move forward to a better Philippines.

  • Pia Pilar Francisco

    Bashing Arroyo is a strategy that would have worked in 2010. But bashing Arroyo is not a platform. If UNA ever did bash Arroyo in 2013 campaign, they would not gain much political points from it simply because UNA does not have the track record of cleaning up the Arroyo mess unlike LP. Having said that, I believe the one potential issue that UNA might use against Pnoy’s administration and LP unfairly is the possibility of higher fuel prices in the months ahead. Here in Chicago, commodities trading are picking up due to sustained quantitative easing and excess liquidity. Speculation is bound to go into fuel commodities the way things are now. Japan’s own version of quantitative easing will flood the global market with liquidity. That’s what Team Pnoy needs to watch out for. An empty or angry belly has a way of showing itself in the ballots. The impact of rising fuel prices on third world countries is more acute. High fuel prices have been known to pull down survey ratings, as what happened last year to Pnoy at the height of the Noynoying meme.

    Good luck Team Pnoy.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3UAABFPUE5ZKBXOAGLWL6POGWU joel genese

      You’re far better than any of the political adviser on any side. There are many issues that could be resolved in differing approach. If the administration failed to ease fuel prices using their method, why not the UNA will use this opportunity to stage their own approach and offer them to the people.

        Tehot, bakit mo naman dinedeny na lumipat na ng alyansa yan si Binay? Eh kasama nya na si Magsaysay, Zubiri, Enrile sa partido pulos mga close aid ni GMA.
        Buti pa si Pimentel tumiwalag sa partido kasi di masikmura ang corrupt politics ng UNA.

        korek kasi me prinsipyo ang tao. ikaw ba sasali sa partido na alam mong nandon din ang kandidatong nandaya sa yo? pinipilit ng tatlong haring utot na kalimutan na ang lahat. aba, bobo nga sila talaga

  • batchmatters

    Si PNoy lang ang target ng UNA kaya bakit babanatan nila si Gloria?  Kung dati ay galit si ERAP sa nagpakulong sa kanya, ngayon ay hindi na raw muna kasi eleksion, at baka hindi sila iboto ng mga kapanalig ni Gloria. Kasi ito lang naman talaga ang mga boboto sa kandidato ni UNA.  Their campaign slogan:  A vote for UNA is a vote for Gloria. Dedmahin ang Tuwid na Daan in favor of 5 daang libong pisong payola uli sa envelope.

       Teka,teka,teka Batchmakers….. If  I can perfectly recollect the downfall of ERAP, hindi ba  nagpeople POWER  revolution sa EDSA? Pa-ano mo naman nasabi it was the ex-President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo ang nagpakulong ni Erap? Si GMA nga ang nagpardon ni Erap dahil  siya lang as a President according to the  Constitution was  vested  with power   who can pardon such crime of  a higher official.  I know talamak na ang Corruption ng mga politician  in the Philippines  na parang CANCER,  pero itong Noypi na ito,  instead of  concentrating  his efforts to solve the present problem  , puro na lang blame ng blame kay GMA.All I can say to the present President is MOVE ON !
      You already have three years  sitting as a President. Let the  Court  handle  the cases against  the previous President ( which   if  the media  had  stated it correctly, cases against the  Ex-president Arroyo had been dismissed  left and right  with  few remaining,which I am sure  wala ring ebidensya at walang   credible witness) . Mr.President,Do not dwell in the past .If you think  you really can do the Da-ang Matuwid, then go ahead and show  it now .Solve the misery,the poverty, the jobless and also the education  and health. No one can say that GMA is the cause of Poverty, the cause of  so many jobless in the country and the cause of poor health system in the Philippines.
      If ever, solve these problems NOW instead of blaming and dwelling the past. YOU already had three years that passed .Take charge!

      • catmanjohn

        All that money Gloria absconded with should not be forgot nor forgiven, That would be the biggest insult to the People and Nation. Never!  Why it is taking so long to prosecute her is beyond reason, unless the Aquino DOJ feels proper tactics calls for UNA to be swept out first, so proper justice can be carried out.

      • 33Sambuang2

    By not bashing Arroyo, UNA hopes to woo voters who still love Arroyo. But that’s probably just a very small minority by now.

    UNA has a better chance of winning if it tries to woo those who are not impressed with PNoy’s same-old-same-old politics or simply dissatisfied with PNoy after three years in office.  There’s a lot more votes in that category.

    But then again, what makes UNA the better alternative? Sa packaging pa lang talo na.

    “….GMA is a nonfactor….in what’s happening in our country,” – WOW…so telling coming from ERAP-one of the UNA 3 Kings! You would expect that from MITOS but..ERAP? It goes to show the possible comeback of transactional politics made (in)famous by GMA if and when UNA candidates win which would pave the way for a BINAY presidential win. This gives you an idea that GMA’s group are helping fund UNA. Tuloy ang ligaya ni GMA if UNA and Binay wins…. This should serve as a warning for all of us…

    Because they birds of a feather.

    Bashing Arroyo was our national past time in 2010 and 2011 and somehow in 2012. By now, wala na. It’s not dissimilar from bashing the Marcoses. Wala ng dating. Both LP and UNA should come up with better platforms. Hindi na uubra ang bashing Arroyo. Hindi rin naman nawala ang rice smuggling, recycling of NFA permits under P-Noy. Hindi rin naman nabawasan ang illegal logging sa panahon ni P-Noy. Hindi rin naman napuksa ang jueteng sa panahon ni P-Noy. Dahil sa MOOE scandal sa senado na kinasangkutan ng LP at UNA, nawalan tuloy ng saysay ang impeachment ni Corona. Di hamak na mas malaki ang perang nabubulsa ng mga senador. Voter apathy ang mangingibabaw sa Mayo.

    UNA, ang daang madilim!

  • Janch

    THEY WANT TO DIVERT THE ISSUE FROM CORRUPTION.

    BECAUSE THE PERSONALITIES IN UNA ARE TAINTED WITH CORRUPTION.

    They don’t want to talk about corruption in the  GMA administration.  Kasi yun din ang magiging issue sa kanila.  This is what worked for Binay.  Di napag-usapan ang mga kaso niya sa pangungurakot sa Makati noong nagdaang election.  Sa halip, yung magandang nangyari lang sa Makati ang narinig ng mga tao habang nag-mumudslinging sina Legarda at si Roxas.  

    Besides winning the election is about getting more allies, not enemies.  Nililigawan lahat basta’t makakadagdag sa boto ng UNA.

    • diamond_digger

       I agree with your comment, Janch, except that “tainted with corruption” seems an understatement for them. UNA’s leaders are ‘covered and drenched’ with corruption and oppression. From now till the election day, the Filipinos have ample time to review and analyze their records of performance – i.e. Enrile’s martial law connection, Binay’s penchants for luxury and unmitigated dream of power as demonstrated by his use of the siren even in bringing his grandchildren to school and his dynastic rule of makati. Of course, we all know Estrada has been convicted of corruption.

    If the UNA wishes to take the higher path as it seems to claim, disclose every candidate’s SALN   just as Corona had to, and explain the acquired wealth, and only then should the voters take your claims seriously.

  • Dy Pailad

    UNA can do the GMA bashing  this coming holy week. It’s called self flagellation. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AECMZN3H5INVFBHCCZJQMJ6MEI Neil

    bashing arroyo and her administration is to remember how corrupt the previous administration and how philippines is slowly going down the drain that time. by not mentioning marcos, estrada or arroyo’s time means we forgot what they did before. its important that we keep on reminding the people their grave offenses so that it wont be repeated kasi pinoys are quick to forgot the SINS of these leaders..

    • diamond_digger

       Tama! Maliban diyan, ang pinag-uusapan ay ang campaign sortie nila sa Pampanga na siyang baluarte ni GMA. It is just but natural for UNA to refrain from hitting on GMA otherwise people won’t troop to their meetings. In short, they (UNA) will be doing a “pamamangka sa dalawang ilog”. Well, what’s new, JV Ejercito? We know that the leadership of UNA has one common character trait in their bloods. And that includes you.

  • shane oy

    YEah they won’t bash arroyo because they are friends and they are one and the same corrupt group. 

    OFWs should persuade their dependents to campaign against the corrupt UNA. 

    USE the power of the purse OFW.

  • disqusted0fu

    Bashing GMA has been Pnoy’s primary agenda for the entire first half of his term, and we don’t expect that to change for the rest of his presidency since that’s pretty much all he’s got. So there’s no need for any more politicians to add on to that because it is already sickening as it is. Honestly, what is the PH getting out of that?!

    • 33Sambuang2

      now you blame the president for the economy that even her teacher kawatan gma praised him for that? magkape ka para matauhan ka. lamig lang ng tyan yan. pisot

      • KarlosRegaza

        weeeee di nga. gma praised panot? nananaginip ka iha.

  • disqusted0fu

    A President and his subordinates who focus more on attacking the previous administration rather than addressing the problems faced by the nation says a lot about their performance or lack thereof. Pnoy and his administration are put on the spot and has a huge amount of pressure on them but they just can’t seem to deliver. Instead of working hard, they just choose to use GMA. They put the spotlight on her and her administration which relieves them from the pressure and the amount of work that they apparently can’t handle.

    • 33Sambuang2

      • KarlosRegaza

  • noypisiTED

    Good that PNoy and LP keeps bashing GMA so the nation won’t forget what she did. UNA won’t do that since a lot of their senatorial candidates were once rabid Arroyo fans.

  • disqusted0fu

    Three years under Pnoy was full of accusations and cases filed against GMA. Despite pouring most of his efforts on trying to convict the former President, there are just no evidences to show, resulting to the dismissal of some of the cases. That’s because all the accusations and cases filed are for the sole purpose of persecuting GMA to quench Pnoy’s thirst of spite towards his predecessor.

    Talagang ang mga pulitiko nga naman. No Gloria bashing daw. Kaya naman pala e dahil sa Pampanga ang susunod na pupuntahan nila. Balwarte ni GMA. No permanent enemies talaga sa pulitika. Para ding si BS Aquino pag mageeleksyon ay maamo kay Bongbong Marcos. Para wag mabato ng kamatis sa Ilocos. Meron din kasing loyalist yang si GMA sa Pampanga kaya medyo maamo itong taga UNA. Paano after ng election? balik uli sa bashing!

    Tama lang na wag na kayong makisali sa bashing na yan. Magkaroon kayo ng originality yang Gloria bashing ay patented o exclusive lang kay LP leader Don Benigno Simeon Aquino. Huwag gaya gaya!

  • JasonBieber

    I’m sure the UNA is just saying this to gain votes but it doesn’t change the fact that what they are saying is very true.

    GMA has been out of office for 3 years so she is indeed a non-factor. Actually, she instituted a lot of economic plans that this current Administration is benefiting from but aside from that…that’s it.

    With or without GMA corruption in the government is still rampant. Just look at the BuCor or the BI or Customs. Or actually look at the current PCSO now that apparent has about P10M that they have to explain. And even with the Atimonan jueteng based ambush…corruption is still bad during the PNoy term so PNoy attacking and blaming GMA is unwarranted and merely an excuse for PNoy to persecute GMA.

  • ike1684

    natural kasi ang UNA associated kay GMA pare pareho silang mga kurakot. si mitos na taga hugas ng puwet ni arroyo alangang kalabanin nya. makapal din ang mukha nito ni mitos eh kasabwat sya sa mga anomalya ni arroyo

    Pano ba naman, karamihan sa UNA nakinabang nung panahon ni Arrovo.

  • disqusted0fu

    It’s just hard to understand why bashing GMA has been a tactic of the LP, and of the Aquino administration per se. That obviously did not stop corruption, it did not stop crimes all sorts of crimes from happening either, nor did it create jobs, and it definitely did not better the lives of the Filipinos. So what’s so good about it?
