Marcos won over Cory; Arroyo over FPJ



Inquirer’s Fernando del Mundo’ wrote the last of his  two-part series on Edsa ’86 on Wednesday, which was a recollection of the events leading up to the “Mother of all People Power Revolts.”

Del Mundo’s interview with Roberto V. Ongpin, former trade minister during the Marcos government, was very revealing.

I was a reporter during the martial law period and covered Edsa ’86 from start to finish, and I can’t agree with Ongpin more when he said Ferdinand Marcos won the snap election against Cory Aquino.

“With the (snap) election, a lot of people felt that he (Marcos) lost. You know, he won. In my view he really won,” he said.

Estimates by experts placed Marcos’ lead over Cory by 300,000 votes.

Voters back then, who were as politically immature as now, chose Marcos over Cory because they didn’t know any better.

Most people in the rural areas, who comprise the bulk of the voting population, didn’t know Cory.

She was only popular in Metro Manila and other big cities.

The problem with Marcos was that he wanted to show the United States—which was pressuring him to step down—that he was still very popular with the people, and so he cheated at the polls to show a wide margin.

* * *

Speaking of cheating at the polls to gain a convincing lead over an opponent, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo did it.

GMA did win over Fernando Poe Jr.; perhaps by a small margin, but she won.

FPJ turned off millions of voters because he shunned meeting with local officials in his campaign sorties and was a clumsy speaker on stage.

I’ve talked with FPJ’s close friends and they all said that he lost because he was too shy to face people.

Gloria’s blunder was to talk with Commission on Elections Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano over the phone to inquire about the results of the voting even before the counting took place.

That historic conversation was tapped and recorded.

The rest is history.

* * *

Senatorial candidate Grace Poe-Llamanzares will suffer the same fate as her father, FPJ.

Llamanzares, who was kicked out of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), made a big blunder when she admitted she bears a grudge against Cebuano voters who chose Gloria over FPJ in the 2004 presidential election.


She should have kept her feelings to herself since she’s supposed to be courting their votes.

Her political gaucherie will make voters in other parts of the Visayas and Mindanao, which areas  are Cebuano-speaking, shun her.

      I agree.. I wonder why these people continue to read mon’s articles if they find it repulsive all the time.. maybe the truth is they admire mon, they just cant admit it and just wanted to “may masabi lang” mentality to “look intelligent”.

      I rarely read mon’s articles.. I enjoy reading the d*mb comments below it more.. as they are the reason why mon continues to be popular.. and ofcourse.. continue to receive paychecks from inquirer.

        Because these yellowtards were ordered by Carandang paid-PR group to just put comments on every section of the inquirer be it pro-penoy or anti and make sure to insult (and not even criticized ) the reporters/columnists who writes negatively. Try to observe and criticize the abnoy government during weekends or holidays and you will be amazed how few or even zero reply from them. Observe during weekdays especially office hours and they will swarm you with personal insults for every negative comment you write. Remember Drilon pronouncements of campaign strategy ? He announced that they will campaign more thru cyberspace ( twitter,email,social media,sms) . And these bashers are their paid-PR groups. It is a strategy that works to condition the mind of the voters and undecided voters. Expect more propaganda emails and paid surveys in favor of these groups as they were effective during the 2010 presidential election. This is also the campaign strategy of Sen. Serge Osmena. Propaganda surveys plus sms plus emails plus social media.

    Marcos won over Cory not just by 300,000 votes but about one million.  People’s minds were conditioned into believing that Cory won.  Even before the snap election, the Yellow Brigade supported by US-CIA warned the people that if Marcos won, he cheated and if Cory won, it would be a clean election.  Cory only had the most votes in Metro Manila where she was popular mainly because of Cardinal Sin’s help.  In the provinces, people still voted for Marcos because Cory was unknown.  Days after Marcos was ousted, people in the provinces thought Marcos was still the President.  

    • Dexter Red

      Strongly agree! Until now my Aunt recognize Marcos as her only President. hahaha

    • patriotic_act

      It was actually true.. most of the time kasi yung mga tao dito sa metro manila lang ang nagpi-people power.. akala nila andami nun, usually kung isasama mo yung mga supporters ni Marcos sa lahat ng region at probinsya eh sa kangkungan pupulutin yung mga taong pumunta sa edsa nung People Power 1..

      parang yung Edsa Dos.. puro tagarito lang naman sa metro manila ang nagpunta dun eh, puro mga hakot ng makati business club at mga estudyante at aktibista.. kaya nung Edsa Tres eh naging matalino si Gloria at pinaharang nya yung mga barkong papunta dito dala yung mga supporters ni Erap galing sa visayas at mindanao.. kung nakarating dito lahat yung mga yun baka naging katawa tawa tayo sa buong mundo.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/3AXROSN6LN5YP66EONOKGSSYFY Ngiping Dilaw

        Yan din ang punto ko. Kaya nga bakit daw ibinoto pa ng mga tao ang mga Marcos ayan nasa poder uli sila. Kasi nga yung mga nasa EDSA people power ay hindi kabuuang bilang ng populasyon. Ilang percent lang ng populasyon yung nada EDSA people power. Mas marami ang maka Marcos. Ang lakas ni Marcos sa mga probinsya. Akala nila komo marami ang nasama sa rally nina Cory e wala ng maka Marcos. Bakit daw pumangalawa pa si Erap noongn2010 election? E si de Venecia nga TKO noongmlaban nila ni Erap eh. Nagtaka pa sila.

      • patriotic_act

        yep indeed.. yun din ang sinabi ng mga tao sa mga probinsya.. usually mga nagpi-people power eh mga tao lang dito sa manila.. eh wala pa sa 1/4th ng populasyon yun eh.

        si Erap nakuha pa rin nya yung almost 10M na boto na nakuha nya nung 1998.. nabawasan lang ata ng ilang libo, ibig sabihin ba kung yung mga bumoto kay Erap nung 1998 eh pumunta lahat sa Edsa Tres eh for sure sa kangkungan pinulot si GMA.

        yun ang mali dito.. masyadong nasensationalize yung mga ginagawa ng mga taga metro manila lang kasi sila yung nacocover ng media.. yung mga gustong sumoporta kila Marcos at Erap noon eh walang power na sumporta kasi anglalayo nila.

        Pero bilib talaga ako kay GMA kasi di nya pinayagan yung mga barkong papunta dito nun para sumama sa Edsa Tres.. atleast naging presidente sya ng 9 years

  • adscity_info

    Indeed, GMA won over FPJ even she didn’t make a call to Garci.

    • Noel

      I hate GMA.  I wanna be clear about that.  But in fairness to her, she indeed won over FPJ by about 200K.  Since it was a small margin, she wanted the victory to be more credible so she cheated.  Her victory was largely due to INC votes which decided to endorse her after Lacson and FPJ failed to unite against her despite INC’s ultimatum.  Had either Ping or FPJ given in by agreeing to run as Vice and then INC supported one of them, GMA had no chance of winning. 

      • patriotic_act

        I have INC friends and this is actually true.. the INC gave their votes to GMA because FPJ and Ping failed to practice what the INC preach “unity” so GMA indeed won.. but a small margin it is indeed.

    Not only do I disagree with Mon’s ideas in this column but am aghast at his declaration of his belief that Marcos won over Cory Aquino. His opinion with regards to GMA’s win over FPJ may have some points but not in his first. How could the EDSA revolution be as successful in so short a time and without so much bloodshed were it not for the fact that people who truly felt Marcos cheated on Cory and decided to cast away their personal fears and trooped to EDSA to join the revolution. Besides, didn’t the canvassers who walked out and discontinued the tally of the election results exposed the massive cheating perpetuated by the then administration of Marcos? If Tulfo who claims to be a reporter during those dreaded years of Martial law should have known the feelings of the people at that time, unless during those times he was already a “i, me, mine” person  as he is now.

      Read the Mossadegh coup. The parallelism of events leading to the ouster are undeniable. In fact some RAM members admitted that they had been planning the coup a year before 1986 with the US liberals’ blessing. 

      The Namfrel objectives is to sow confusion. By trending vote counting in favor of Cory. Setting the illusion of Cory winning the election. Even declaring the number of people in EDSA in millions is false too.

No doubt using their formidable ill-gotten wealth to buy a favorable history. But then, they cannot buy all people, and the truth comes out, no matter how much their money is.

    How can you have a real count if one party cheated. It never mattered who won on that election because Marcos and his cronies tainted it. This is why the people’s will won and overthrew Marcos. He lost his credibility after more that 20 years of trying to cling to power. I should know I grew up during the marcos era.

    Nakukuha lang kasi sa ingay yan tulad ng gawain ng oposisiyon nung panahon ni Macoy, at nito ngang kay GMA.  Of course, Marcos has to go that time.  He should have left his post after 2 terms.  His mistake was trying to perpetuate his hold on power.  Had he just kept the usual turn over of governments thru legitimate elections, he could have ended as one of the best presidents this country ever had.  His first 2 terms in office had been good to the country economically and even militarily.  Nagsuwapang lang kasi ang pamilya kaya ayun. Sana binigyan niya ng tsansa na mapatunayan ni Ninoy na nationalistic talaga siya o another pulitiko din lang..

    The ‘Hello Garci’ incident is problem one of the most misunderstood incident in the Philippine history.

    It’s appreciated that this author was fairly honest to write that GMA indeed win and the only mistake was to inquire about the results prior to the counting.

    People believe the ‘Hello Garci’ and the apology that followed was for a crime or cheating. The apology that GMA gave was for the blunder of inquiring of results prior to the counting NOT for cheating. Should GMA have call Garci…probably not…was it cheating or a crime…NO.

    Many people talk about the ‘Hello Garci’ incident and use it to attack GMA without being properly informed on what actual transpired in the incident.

    • Noel

      GMA knew she was winning but she wanted to make sure she won by a huge margin.  She actually won by only about 200K.  But this number would certainly create doubts on people. 

      • JasonBieber

        At the end of the day…there was no cheating, there was no crime but many are misinformed of the actual events of the ‘Hello Garci’ incident. Whether by 200k or by 1…she had more votes therefore she won fair and square.

      • aristeosj

        Duh!!there was no cheating???do you know where you are coming from???it is prohibited to talk to any comelec officer during and

    Past is past. Let’s see who will cheat this time.

  • 808reader

    Mr. Tulfo, how can you assert that both Marcos and Arroyo won their respective elections but at the same time admit that they cheated? I think what you’re trying to say is that both Marcos and Arroyo would have won anyway even if they did not cheat. That is very difficult to prove since the election ballots were tampered with. What is easier to prove, if it hasn’t already, is that both Marcos and Arroyo won their elections because they cheated.  

    • Noel

      Please read what he wrote twice.  Both won but still cheated to increase the margins so that it would look more credible.  

      • AllaMo

        And, the cheating made the cheated elections more credible? ROTF LMFAO! You realize, you just shot down your whole foolish lemma.

      • Noel

        No.  I still maintain my position that both won but cheated to get more votes.  Call it greed if you want.

  • eorlando

    If Marcos won fair and square then why was he ousted? I guess winning by vote buying, by intimidation, and by the controlled commission on election plus the military is still WINNING. People forgot that they printed several paper money with the same serial number. What do you think that was for and who do you think did it? and this is just the obvious. Revising history is probably very lucrative these days – In preparation of Bongx2 – 2016 ? Never again! A few silver coins is just not worth another 20 years of oppression.

    • Noel

      People’s minds were already conditioned before the election.  Through the help of western media (CIA backed) and local media operators including Namfrel headed by yellowish Joe Concepcion, people were warned that if Marcos won he cheated and if Cory won it was clean.

      • Irene Wong

         Noel, I agree with you… AMEN..

      • AllaMo

        Fools in agreement. Like the mountain birthing a mole. LOL!

      • eorlando

        Give me a break! People were conditioned about cheating by Marcos and the KBL. they cheated for all those years–  even kids knew that Marcos was a cheat from way back. They faked an attack, jailed people, and killed their opponents. Cheating on election was not that difficult for these people. The Filipinos did not need Namfrel nor the CIA to know who were the cheaters and the corrupt. Only the deaf, blind and dumboes that did not know Marcos was a cheat.

      • Noel

        I’m gonna give you a break so you could gather your nerves in the brain.  First of all, how old were you during Martial Law and even before that?  Even the kids knew Marcos was a cheat?  The kids at that time or the kids today?  What they hear are all being told to them many of which were lies and baseless.  Marcos won convincingly against Macapagal and even Osmena.  He could have cheated on the later part of his years but it could have been done by Imelda and her cohorts so that Marcos stayed in power.  If Marcos stayed, so was Imelda and her corrupt family.

      • eorlando

        Sir I was one of those kids at that time. Mayors got sacks full of money to buy votes – KBLs especially, my neighbors were really “happy”- News paper showed picture of 100 peso bills with the same serial number. Goons running around. They even given out t-shirts with “presidential guard” print etc.. etc. I know you are one of those Marcos kababayan loyalist but you do not have to deny their evil machinations.  Maybe in Ilocos Norte Marcos did not have to cheat but elsewhere is another story. You can blame Imelda but it was Marcos who proclaimed Martial Law to keep himself in power. Popular presidents do not have to hide behind martial law to remain in power.

  • speaksoftlylove

    This time, I will agree with you in all three issues that you raised. Actually, I really didn’t care when FPJ lost the election. Though it’s rude to malign the memory of the dead, I am not maligning him but just stating a fact. I am a race aficionado, so too was FPJ. He had two winning horses in his stable namely Lord Joseph (named after Erap) and My Lady Grace (of course named after Llamanzares). His permanent jockey was the Eduardo Domingo, Jr. When his horse lost as an outstanding favorite, a rather inebriated FPJ rush to the weighing stand and confronted Jockey Domingo, drew his gun and threatened to shoot him. If it did not happen in front of the racing public, Jockey Domingo would have been a dead meat. Turned out that his horse suffered a minor heart attack and vomitted blood so Jockey Domingo was forced to stop the horse from running to save it’s life. Di man lang binigyan ni FPJ ng panahon na magpaliwanag yong jockey samantalang milyon milyong pera na ang naiakyat ng jockey sa kanya. I was a fan of FPJ not because of his machine like fists in the movies but because I thought then he was a symbol of humility. Parang sine, laging kawawa pero kabaliktaran pala lahat. Kung totoong biological daughter si Grace, nakakatakot kung minana niya yong lihim na totoong ugali ni FPJ.

    • Noel

      Tutoong kapag lasing si FPJ ay nagbabaril siya.  Iyan din ang ginawa niya minsan sa Makati sa loob ng isang bar.  Nagpaputok siya sa loob na parang sa sine.

    Was there any cheating when GMA won against FPJ? I don’t think so. All it was was a phone call to Garcilliano inquiring about the poll results, nothing more. It was just a hyped up incident by the media and by political opponents of GMA back then to make it appear to the Filipinos that GMA actually cheated, when in reality it was just an inquiry.

  • bisdakis

    Cebuanos do not need to cheat to bury Fernando Poe in the elections. We bisdaks are intelligent voters and can differentiate between movie and reality! Grace Poe will be buried deeper than his father by the Cebuano electorate this coming election. Better for her to campaign in Luzon where majority of voters are showbiz fanatics and political bobos! Not even Erap, Jaworski, Sotto, Revilla, Nolie de Castro, Lapid. and other showbiz people have survived in Cebu.

  • Crystalbabao

    Kaya ka nagugulpi. Mahilig ka gumawa ng kwentong barbero para paboran ang mga nagbabayad sa iyo. Grace Poe never castigated the Cebuano voters. Very clearly, she said thatthe blame was on the few officials who cheated on her father. Watch her speech again.

      Grace Poe lived and studied in the US for many years and she’s an American citizen.  She admitted this in nationwide TV (you might be inside the toilet when she said this on TV).  But she claimed to be a dual citizen and that she renounced her US citizenship at the US Embassy when she decided to run as Senator.  True or not, we don’t know if she did it.

    The truth is nangyari ang Edsa1- 1986 dahil kay Enrile, palitan niyo na ang history hanggan gusto niyo, pero yung mga nabubuhay noon alam ito. kung  gusto ng tao ang Edsa, bakit walang Edsa nang napatay si Ninoy (1983).
    Kahit gusto ng mga aquinos na mag-alsa ang tao, kaya nga hindi nila nilinis si Ninoy, at puno siya ng dugo habang nakaratay, hindi pa rin nag-alsa ang tao. 

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      That’s the beginning, everybody knows Filipinos and other countries don’t believed that Ninoy Aquino was killed by Galman alone.  Was it really Galman? 
      Enrile is a snake, he knows where to slither when in danger.  Until now, he will used his inside information to switch color.  Ask the expert, colorful snake carries a deadly venom.

      • novaliches

         You can call enrile whatever names you want, he deserve it anyway.  however, the truth is the people went to edsa to protect enrile and ramos, and not cory, since cory was in hiding somewhere in cebu. most of those politician  that were present at last week edsa celebration, they were not there. it was only when the tide had change that these guys started to come. 
        If marcos is a tyrant and addicted to his position. there should have been a bloodbath,  but he refused to fight and elected to leave than to have people killed.  just like what is happening in syria now, or previously in libya and egypt.

      It was the manipulations of the Cojuanco family and the Americans that put Cory into power.  And what a grand mistake that was!  She was as bad as Marcos.  All she did was hide under her bed and pray!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/6EADOP2OSGDCE6G6CE6IQLU7XM Julius

        to say that the americans put cory in power is contradictory.  at the height of people power in February 1986, i also clearly remembered Ronald Reagan fumbling with the statement “both sides cheated” and later on suggested instead power sharing between Marcos and Cory.  it was only after the victory of people power was clear that Marcos was told to “cut and cut cleanly”.  now i’m not going to argue with you whether these were facts.  but i’m going to tell you that any kind of justification for cheating or minimizing the marcos tyranny by belittling the succeeding presidencies is, to put it mildly, neither here nor there.  nevertheless, peace to you.

      • novaliches

         alam natin lahat na isang dahilan kaya bumagsak si marcos ay dahil kay imelda. nasira din ang national ambition ni Imee  dahil sa kanya (remember the gma impeachment vote, biglang nag-abroad  si Imee sa advise ni Imelda). kaya ang tao madyo suspicious na makikialam uli si mam kung si bongbong naman ang uupo.

    Sabi dinaya ni Marcos si Cory, di mananalo si Marcos dahil galit ang mga tao sa kaniya. Noong nasa Hawaii sina Marcos, sa Pilipinas wala kang mababasa sa diario kundi puro kasamaan ng mga Marcos. Bakit noong bumalik galing Hawaii at kumandidatong senador si Bongbong at Imee ay nanalo pa?

    People who know the truth knows GMA won the 2004 elections fair and square. It is true that she should not have spoken to Garci but that does not warrant cheating accusations since there was no talk at all of cheating even on the recorded conversation.

    With that said, i can see why GMA was so unpopular. It is because she worked all the time for the Philippines and never stopped to have fun with the media or crack jokes for the public…which is also why i can see why PNoy is so popular. It is because he doesn’t really work that hard and thus has a lot of time to entertain the media and crack jokes for the public.

        the langgam’s tribe is pretty much aware that “things” who think of themselves as bigger than the langgam eventually fall prey.

        you don’t put your trust on the leaders?  how can you be so dense bradir?   no wonder why the phils is stuck on the beaten track because the “smart and intelligent ones are marching to the beat of their own drum.

        is there a country in the world with idiot leaders and still keep on chugging along?  if you’re satisfied with what you have, there are millions out there that need salvation.  have fun living in your own little world.  the tenants of the mental institutions also live on their own little world.

      • aristeosj

        i believe you are the one existing in your own world bradir…
        a world characterized by pain—specifically inflicting pain 
        to others and to himself.i have a strong suspicion that you
        were never a factor in the salvation of this country because
        you can not save a nation by merely inflicting pain,especially
        from a lucid guy like you.

    this is stupid!  Del Mundo said he agree’s with Ongpin that Marcos won over Cory but Marcos cheated to show to the US that he is still popular so he cheated to widen the margin….now, how did these experts estimate that Marcos really  won by  300,000 votes?.. were they present during the manipulation of votes?or were they relying on the manipulated Comelec canvass? even in sports or whatever field, a cheater is declared a loser or disqualified..what’s the point of affirming that Marcos had won but then he cheated?.this is an election and the voters right of suffrage is considered sacred..even if Marcos won by a billion votes if he CHEATED he deserves to lose and this was shown by the people power.

    The SWS is the same survey that said GMA won.  Itong mga followers ng politico, selective use lang ang paggamit sa survey. kapag kalaban nila ang nanalo sinabing dinadaya, pero panay quote naman sa mga survey kapag sila nangunguna.

  • Anton Bautista

    Yeah,  regarding Grace Poe-Llamanzares comments about holding a grudge against cebuanos,  She turned off not only cebuano speaking filipinos but filipinos of cebuano descent, such as myself.  I think she is immature and unworthy of being a public servant much less a senator.  She will be petty and divisive, ala-show biz.  But after having experienced the folly of having actors turned politicians, we should be wary of people coming from such backgrounds in general.

    Except for her being a newbie and being a former MTRCB head, Grace Poe has no other credentials to speak of.  And she was invited to run as senator precisely due to her being a proxy of her deceased father. Truth be told, FPJ could not even talk of the country’s economic condition when he ran. He always declined interviews or debates. I could not imagine how he would have managed his administration.

    But he was a popular actor. And that is what Grace Poe capitalizes on. Nothing more.

Too early to become a senator, like Bam Aquino. Too young to get corrupted. Magpakita muna ng kakayahan. Look at Trillanes. He was so young when he won as senator through protest votes over Gloria. Hayan, walang maipakitang nagawa except kalabanin si Enrile at the right moment. Dun lang nakilala. Stll, he is in the same mode as Honasan and Bong Revilla and Lito Lapid.

    Pitiful. Even Marcos did not think he would win. If he was that popular or thought he would win an election, why did he declared matial law? Why would you round up your opposition? Why would you kill your main opponent? Why buy votes etc. etc. And if Marcos, through his deeds, did not think that he’ll win – why are his minions  think that he did? Delusions, perhaps? or  the “Silver Linings”?
