Former Senator Ramon Magsaysay Jr. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines—Former Sen. Ramon “Jun” Magsaysay, Jr., has admitted being disappointed with the latest survey results of the Social Weather Stations but expressed optimism that his yet-to-be-released media placements and an intensified campaign effort would cause him to make it to winner’s circle next month.

A two-term senator who retired from the Senate in 2007, the 74-year old stalwart of the ruling Liberal Party placed No. 16 in the latest poll results.

“I am affected by the results of the survey, of course. But that’s not enough reason to dampen my strong resolve to be of service to the people,” Magsaysay said in a statement.

“Modesty aside, I accomplished a lot in my 12-year stint but there’s much to be done still. That’s why I would want to continue my work as a legislator and push for good governance as well as needed reforms,” he added.

Magsaysay, during his time in Congress in 1995 to 2007, sponsored such laws as the Anti-Money Laundering Act that penalized attempts to legitimize proceeds of crime and the E-Commerce Act that provided legal recognition, admissibility and evidential value of electronic data messages.

He was also the chairman of the committee on agriculture and food that looked into the multimillion-peso fertilizer fund scam under the Arroyo administration and the committee on national defense that looked into the alleged collusion of military officers and bandits during Basilan siege in the early 2000s.

“Hopefully, I am optimistic that we’ll do good in the next round of poll survey and be among the top 12. We will continue to reach out to the electorate and study further the areas in which we should intensify our efforts in this campaign,” Magsaysay said.

Magsaysay said that at the time when the Social Weather Station (SWS) survey was conducted, his “various multimedia advertisements have not been released.”

Former Sen. Jamby Madrigal, a Team Pnoy stalwart also outside the Top 12 at No. 14, said there was still a lot of time to catch up and make into the winning group.

“It’s just a matter of explaining to the people my advocacies and how it will help President Aquino in his bid to continue his reform program,” Madrigal said in a press statement.

Madrigal is relying on her track record in her only six-year term to convince voters to bring her back to the Senate.

    mr. magsaysay iboboto kayo ng mga tao kasi marangal ka. hindi na bobo ang sambayan para botohin ang mga anak ng tatlong haring bugok

  • Mr Moonlight

    He is a standout among the senatorialcandidates based on job accomplishments and service to the people but hes no darling of the stopid uneducated bakya voters, it is sad really.
    Chez escudero and loren legarda are topping the surveys consistently due to their mastery of showmanship, or in plain street lingo, paporma porma lang, padakdakdakdakdak

  • boybakal

    Magsaysay is not My Guy anymore as they say.
    Magsaysay is wala ng saysay in todays era.

    • Mr Moonlight

      hey edyot are you referring to Jun Magsaysay or his namesake Mitos, better yet check his credentials, his track records, his accomplishments but i guess you are simply braindead

      • boybakal

         Bakit masyado kang personal.
        I just gave my opinion on Magsaysay, binanatan mo ako. Why not give your opinion on the subject and not on commenter.
        You are not only Edyot…your name fits as kadyot tamod.

      • Mr Moonlight

        one last time, read what i said to you over and over and over again and perhaps ma gets mo and ma enlightened ang mind mo, that is, if your brain has the capacity to grasp my message, i said go over Jun Magsaysays credentials and malaman mo sa internet, geeeee!

    i’ll campaign for you coz you are the right person for the senate.

  • RBFjcj

    Pls vote for MAGSAYSAY, like our President PNOY, he is an honest man who just wants to help our country. We need more of men like him.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/G6MG4QQ3ND6UZSOBMLRHALZ7HI Petwil

    If i were to say. Let us change all the old faces in the senate and try the new ones. We have already seen their performance and their ideas. We need new ideas and maybe better senators..

  • Mr Moonlight

    Jun Magsaysay is an icon of statesmanship, honesty, integrity, decency, humility and an excellent former senator!
    He is is supposed to be the # 1 based on his track record as a lawmaker.
    Foreign investors, dignitaries speak highly of him and if any one who is truly worthy of being a president of the philippines, IT IS HIM Jun Magsaysay.
    I am from Visayas region and now works in foreign country

  • wazgoingon

    Let’s get Jun Magsaysay elected to the Senate.  In my book, he’s the best Senator among the lot of aspirants.  He should have been President.

  • joeybg

    JUN, MARAMI PA RIN KASI MGA TANGA AT BOBO ANG NANINIWALA SA TATLONG HARING KAWATAN, NASA #7 PA ANG MASCOT NG UNA, KAWAWANG PINAS.

  • a1phantom

    At least masaya si Drilon….Senate President na siya

  • Joaquin Fernandez

    This attitude must be appreciated. Compare with the Binay’s reaction of believing only surveys that are complimentary, otherwise everything that is unfavorable is treated as “paid”, “wrongly done”, “politically motivated to deceive”.  I hope voters would wake up before electing this brown guy and his family into higher office.

  • JOJO_BINAY

    Ha Ha Ha. Wala silang binatbat sa anak kong si Nancy. Basta Binay siguradong matatag. Clap Clap Claps

    • jgl414567

      Basta Binay seguradong hindi na bibitiwan ang pwesto by hook or by crook kasi family business na nila ang posisyon. Sa liit ng suweldo sa gobyerno bakit kaya ayaw nila itong bitiwan? You guess is as good as mine, pweeeeeh!

    • IbigMongSabihin

      you reminded me of noynoy aquino na ibinoto lang dahil sa anak daw ni cory. talagang utak islander ang mga pinoy voters. ano? ayan, look na lang at walang nagyayaring progress na bayan except progress sa press releases.

  • brunogiordano

    Sa susunod na survey laglag na iyon –

  • eirons1043

    Sir Jun kaya mahina ka sa survey at saka baka hindi ka talagang iboboto ng tao kasi akala eh pamangking buo mo si Mitos (aka gloria sipsip). Besides eh tanda ka na. Dami ka gawa kaso wala effect. Kung wala effect ang mga ginawa mo nuong bata ka (mga 30 years din yun) eh wala ka na buga.

  • wawa2172

    Ok si Jun Magsaysay may track record but matanda na. Si Jamby Madgrigal, anong track record pinag sa sasabi niya. Wala siya non except that her senate performance is off the record.

    • maypakialamtayo

      meron record yan, hindi makakalimutan ng taga media nung tawagin silang PG ni madrigal, meaning, patay gutom.

    • tanga_hanga_ni_abnoy

       naku, baka maging presidente pa pala etong si Jamby..wala rin pa lang accomplishment to

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

    Tsk.tsk.. Jun Magsaysay might be affected by one “fake” Magsaysay running under UNA’s banner. People might be thinking that he is that Magsaysay who was the lackey of Mrs. Arroyo. Jun Magsaysay should find a way how to distance or distinguish himself from the “fake” one.

    SINIRA NG MITOS MAGSAYSAY ANG RAMON MAGSAYSAY. 

    • maypakialamtayo

      si ramon ang mismong sumira sa magsaysay, masyadong kumplikado ung infomercial nya, ang sabi dun eh! ang tunay na magsaysay, bakit, si mitos ba ay hindi legal na asawa ng isang magsaysay? mas bilib ako kay mitos, ang apelyido ng asawa ang dinala at dapat lang kasi legal wife sya, eh! si grace poe, pia cayetano, nancy binay, anong say nyo.

      • boldyak

        ang infomercial na yan ang nagpapatunay na ginagamit lang siya para guluhin ang kalaban…he let himself be used by such kind of politicians…

Jun Magsaysay. palengkera sya at si Sen. Jun naman ay may finesse. kaya dapat na ipagkalat na may peke sa tabi tabi.. beware!   

  • pedronimo

    I find it strange that surveys never poll the votes of the youth, especially those who are presumed to vote on issues not personalities. Schools, like the Ateneo, UP, and De la Salle had had mock elections in the past but the big ones in the University Belt (UE, FEU, UST, NU, CEU) have never come up with their own.surveys when with available and competent human resource and student leaders, these schools can easily design and manage such a survey. Being prestigious education institutions, it is their patriotic duty to survey the opinion of their large population if only to help gauge who among our senatorial aspirants are winning the heart and mind of the youth.

    • http://www.facebook.com/champ.avila Champ Avila

      So you want Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile to resign as a senator? because you want an age limit for politicians? elective office is not as ordinary as being a typical government worker. Tatanda ka rin please slow a bit on age issue. Saka are you sure you’re talking about Jun Magsaysay? hinihila ang paa? I pity people who talk nonsense para lang may masabi. Sana lagyan ng depth ng kaunti.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Nagrereklamo si Tiangco. Dati raw 1 million lang ang binabayad nila sa SWS pag nagpapasurvey sila. Ngayon daw 1.9 milyon na hinihingi ni Mahal Mang ahas ng SWS halos dumoble. Kaya tinigil na raw ng UNA ang subscription sa SWS survey kaya yon biglang bumaliktad ang resulta. Ganun talaga yan, kung sinong highest giver, siyang panalo, ano pa nga ba?

    Dati six pages raw ang report ng SWSsurvey at kumpleto ng paliwanag sa resulta pero ngayon daw one page na lang at walang explanation. Ganun ba kamahal ang papel ngayon, Mahal Mang ahas?

  • speaksoftlylove

    Nakalimutan ni Congressman Tiangco na Year of the Snake ngayon kaya kailangan kumobra ng husto si Mahal Mang ahas, panahon niya ngayong, cheers.

  • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

    I would have had more respect for Jun Magsaysay had he joined the senate race because he really wanted to serve the people. He was only convinced last May 2012 to join the race after some coaxing from Drilon and then some more from PNoy. The intention of LP was to confuse the voters with two Magsaysays. In the end, si Jun Magsaysay din ang natamaan. A bad way for an old man to die and a bad way to ruin his dad’s name. Tragic indeed.

    • PinoyPower1

      Stupid comment. Jun Magsaysay did not do anything bad to ruin his dad’s name.

      Di sya katulad ni gloria arroyo na sinira ang pangalang macapagal dahil sa pangungurakot.

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        He’s a loser. He ruined his dad’s name by being a loser.

      • Liaa14

        A loser? A congressman at the age of 27 and has a consistent track record of integrity.  What have you done to make your parents proud? Can you match Ramon Magsaysay Jr. in the amount of good works and people he has helped?  Oh well… talagang those who cannot find issues will make them up as they go along.

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        A congressman but still a loser. No achievement. Nothing. Except for exploiting name recall. Parang affected na affected ka?

      • Liaa14

        ikaw rin.. affected na affected sa galing ni Magsaysay.

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        Kadiri si Jun, ang tanda tanda na, loser pa. Mas katakam-takam pa nga si Mitos, kung hindi lang bungangera.

      • Liaa14

        Ok now I understand what you stand for.  There really is no accounting for breeding.

      • Liaa14

        Actually not hurt at all.  Just filled with more fire to spread the word about the good Senator.  He’ll win and then we’ll see who’s crying then.

      • white_linen

        Ikaw ang loser kasi wala kang alam sabihin kundi yan! wala na bang ibang laman ang kokote mo kundi yan? kawawa ka naman. tsk. tsk. Ni hindi mo ma-spell out ang basis ng mga sinasabi mo.. dapat marunong kang magjustify ng posisyon mo. ayayay!

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        Masyado mo namang dinamdam ang sinabi ko tungkol kay Jun Magsaysay. Masyado ka kasing malapit sa kanya. Pero laos na talaga ang mga Magsaysay, mapa Jun o Mitos. Mas mabuti pa si Mitos, kahit paano may asim pa at kanasa-nasa. Si Jun, laos na asar talo pa.

    • http://www.facebook.com/champ.avila Champ Avila

      I guess you’re not reading well. Mr. Jun Magsaysay said he was first approached by the LP people as early as 2010, three years after he announced his retirement from politics, but he declined the offer because back then he just started his dairy farm. While he rejected earlier offer to return to public service the effort to have him reconsider his decision was relentless, until he finally said yes last July 2012 to Sen. Franklin Drilon. And not because he agreed to go back to politics doesn’t mean  former Sen. Magsaysay Jr. is ruining his dad’s name. And why associate him to Mitos, the feel good niece in law who is far below the good Jun Magsaysay in the SWS survey or even in previous surveys. 

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        That’s what he says now. And you have no way of proving it.

    Your goal sir is not to talk about the past. The important thing to do now is to be relevant and talk about the future. You are talking to a very young electorate and right now, sir, if you don’t talk about internet, communication, technology, DOTA, then no one will find you “cool” enough to be placed on the ballot.

    Sayang if Jun Magsaysay and Jamby Madrigal don’t get re-elected. Their experience as hardworking and incorruptible senators should be considered by thinking voters. If you review Senate records, their bills were seriously thought out. Check Honasan’s Senate records — and you will cry.

  • x_alonso14

    Sen. Ramon “Jun” Magsaysay may not be flashy or “trendy” as other candidates out there but he knows what has to be done to help the Filipino people. I know his advocacy includes science & tech, entrepreneurship and agriculture.

    Not many people know this but he has helped a lot of young people get started in business when he launched the Young Farmers Program.

    Ma-boto gid ko ya para kay Sen. Jun Magsaysay sa May 2013!

  • http://www.facebook.com/champ.avila Champ Avila

    I don’t think Mr. Magsaysay Jr. said anything bad against Mindanao. As far as I can remember what he asked was for the claimants to go home and discuss the issue diplomatically. He never said bad about the claimants.

      • nakawan

        In other words, hindi mo ma-explain. Yun lang yun :) GO MAGSAYSAY ka na lang! Ingats

      • Liaa14

        ay excuse me… may pinag aralan pero walang breeding pala.

      • nakawan

        Liaa14, ok pray tell, why should I vote for Jun Magsaysay? Paki lista yung mga reasons please.

    • white_linen

      Kung katulad nyo pong magsalita ang younger generation na binabastos ang matatanda, kawawa naman po ang Pilipinas. May panahon pa para magbago, Mr. Magnanakaw. :)

      • nakawan

        yo! nakawan 4 life!

  • adriel0104

    hindi pa huli Jun.Ikaw sana ang iboto sa mga matitino na mga tao.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WYX4ZTAV4BUGW2RIMT45CPYBGA Pio Gante

    mr. jun, don’t take it seriously, it might affect and further aggravate your already poor health. tutal alam naman ng lahat na inudyukan ka lang  na sumama  sa circus na yan para manlito laban sa sampid na kaapelyido mo.

  • Lialily

    When Jun Magsaysay first started this race, his detractors said what has he done?  Now that they know that he has helped so many through medical assistance, patubig, and crafted laws and livelihood programs, his detractors are saying that he shouldn’t dwell on his past laurels.  Now they’re hitting him on his age. 

    He is as quick as a thoroughbred and as strong as an ox.  The bottom line is, if you want someone who’s honest and dedicated to delivering relevant laws for the marginalized, you need to vote for Ramon Magsaysay Jr.

  • ynigooctaviano

    Jun, magpahinga ka na lang po kasi kayo. Give way to young generation of leaders

    • white_linen

      Well, guess what, Sir Octaviano, Sen. Ramon Magsaysay, Jr. is the coolest guy there is at 74. He has provided the young people of today so many technological conveniences. He pioneered the cable television in the Philippines, he passed the e-commerce law which makes electronic documents acceptable in both commercial transactions and for evidentiary purposes, most importantly, he has always fought against internet regulations and too much government interference, he has helped the BPOs and call centers thrive in the Philippines where most of the young people are employed. Now, he is working on the Sovereign Wealth Fund for the future of the Filipinos especially the young.  So, at 74, he is the one actually protecting the interests of the young in so many ways that you can think of. 

    • Liaa14

      Which young leaders?  Nancy Binay?  Migz Zubiri?  JV Ejercito? Puhlease!  Jun Magsaysay pa rin! 

  • http://www.facebook.com/monching.rivera1 Monching Rivera

    I will vote for Jun Magsaysay no matter what his detractors say about his age. The Magsaysay brand will always be a shoo-in in Philippine politics.

    • JuanTamadachi

      Except for Mitos, who for want of a better word, is a fake Magsaysay.

  • Philcruz

    Here is one candidate who will do us proud. Unblemished political record as senator. Humble. Visionary. Businessman. Son of a well-loved past president.  He is the most reliable and most trustworthy of them all.

    MAGSAYSAY IS MY GUY.

  • dknight_98

    Saw this guy once use his influence to bypass the line at the departure area of the NAIA. So much for a man of the masses like his dad. I will NOT vote for this guy.  

    • kolambogan

      So you would like others to believe your account without a corroborating testimony. In my view you are just a pakawala dknight_98 or are you really the dark knight of not so long ago?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/UPG7R2Q2IISKFXEQ5QQD5LIFCA ernie

    The people have spoken. They don’t need your services. Save your campaign money and abide by their wishes…

    • Liaa14

      That’s not the Magsaysay way! Let the chips fall where they may.  The fight is on to the last drop.

  • Deanmartinstyle

    Spend your money to the poor not election campaign so  you could redeem your self from yours sins ( corruption).

    • Liaa14

      He isn’t corrupt and walang bahid kailan man ng corruption.  

  • kilabot

    the 2 magsaysay’s, jun and mitos deserve to be in the senate; 
    not only are they good legislators, 
    they would also contribute to the senate tandems that electorates want 
    for political dynasty’s sake. 

  • AngMandarambong

    Pare-pareho na lang ang mag pangalan – Magsaysay, Enrile, Aquino, etc. This is a country of more than 90 million people, at wala na bang iba na puede maging senador? The senate has become a family affair. Abolish the Senate!

  • kolambogan

    Ang mga Filipino ay dapat mag-isip ng maige kung sino ang pagbibigyan ng kanilang tiwala at pipiliin maging pinuno at mambabatas: Huwag yung mga palagi na lang naka puwesto at payaman ng payaman habang patuloy pa rin ang kahirapan ng mga mamamayan, huwag din yung anak ng mga magulang na hindi lang ubod ng gugulang kundi pulos pagsasamantala ang mga alam at gawi habang nanunungkulan. Si dating Senador Ramon Magsaysay Jr, kapangalan ng kaniyang ilustradonga ama, Ramon Magsaysay Sr., pinakamarangal na naging Pangulo ng Filipinas, malinis at walang bahid dungis sa kaniyang panunungkulan di katulad ng mga Marcos, Estrada, Arroyo, Ramos, Enrile, Honasan, Lacson, Binay, Marcos, kasama na ang sampid na si Mitos Magsaysay, Legarda, Revilla, Lapid, Sotto. Zubiri, De Castro, Maceda at iba pang walang ginawa kundi ang magpayaman ng sarili at pamilya. Si dating Senador Jun Magsaysay, ay ipinanganak na mayaman gawa ng kaniyang inang Gng. Luz Banzon Magsaysay, mga angkang Banzon na mga “entrepreneurs” na nagbukas at nagbigay ng mga trabaho sa mga mamamayan at hindi nagnasang, magpayaman at kumuha ng pera ng bayan di gaya ng mga nabanggit na mandarambong na politico, mga perang kanilang dinambong na para sana sa bansang Filipinas at mga pampublikong infrastuktura nito. Kaya kung si pangkaraniwang Juan, Juana o Pedrong Filipino ay boboto sa eleksiyon, dapat nangunguna sa balota ang pangalang Ramon Magsaysay Jr, dahil siya ay katulad ng kaniyang ama at hindi niya papayagang dungisan ang pangalan nito na tunay na nagmahal sa mga pangkaraniwang tao ng bansa, hindi katulad ng mga mandaranbong na politikong naturan, lahat halos pansariling kapakanan lamang ang alam at tunay na bale-wala ang mga kababayan. Kung pagkatao ang batayan, makatao at malinis si dating senador Jun Magsaysay, at nangunguna sa lahat ng kaniyang mga katunggali, at siya dapat ang number one, at hindi ang mga mapagpanggap na mga nangunguna sa mga surveys na walang mabubuting records na nagawa sa bayan kundi papogi, paganda, drama, sayaw, pambobola, panlilinlang, katangahan at pagpapayaman lamang ang mga alam. Ang pag-asa ng bayan ay nasa mamamayan wala sa mga walanghiyang politico. Kung gusto ng mga tao ang politikong walanghiya, sila na rin ang kumitil ng kanilang pag-asa. Kung ayaw ng sinumang botante sa mabubuting tao, handa na siyang magpapasalaula at magpapalipin habang panahon sa mga walanghiya, sampu ng kaniyang mga anak at pamilya.

    TRACK RECORD  or Not,  I believe  it is time for the Filipino People to give  a chance to  new aspiring Senatorial Candidates.Who knows, they are part of  the solution. Tama na ang dating mga Senador. They already had  the time to serve the country, dapat new faces  naman, baka  they can give inspiration to the youth. If the POPE had the humilty to step down from  the most coveted  position among his flocks, so  my questions to all WHO HAS BEEN SENATORS, Isn’t it time to  hang on the gloves and give way naman to the new  ones ? 

    • Liaa14

      Give chance to others? What a thing to say… like a petulant child stomping his feet screaming “its not FAIR?”.  But this is politics… it is a popularity vote and of those running we must pick the ones that uphold the needs of the marginalized and work towards the needs of the country.  That is why, I am voting for Jun Magsaysay. He’ll win.    The Pope is 85.  Jun Magsaysay has a ways to go before he reaches that number.  

  • bryanbrian

    No need to worry. Still 2 months away. I am sure, zubiri the cheater will not win. It could be Jun Magsaysay or Madrigal in the winning circle by next month.

  • $20722540

    magsaysay balik ka na lang sa retirement

    • Liaa14

      He never retired! He has been working in the private sector and has been making his dairy farm and cable tv network grow.  He is a man of action and won’t rest. That’s what good men do.  They do not retire.  

      • $20722540

        di balik siya sa private sector…ala na siya name recall

      • Liaa14

        eh bakit pinapatulan mo pa?  meron eh.

      • $20722540

        ano pakialam mo

      • Liaa14

        hahhahah!!!  

  • GOPHILIPPINESGO

    Siguradong hindi makakalusot ang mandarayang si zubiri.

    Mananalo pa rin si Jun Magsaysay!

  • lagahit

    Jun Magsaysay should not be discouraged on the latest survey.  This is just an initial survey,  the succeeding surveys will surely place him among the twelve.  The leaders of UNA are now showing their true colors. Enrile is involved in a multimillion scam with COA together with the son of Estrada.  Sooner or later the UNA will just self-destruct.

  • Hey_Dudes

    Ernesto Maceda and Jun Magsaysay two of the senior citizen candidate of UNA would be better off encouraging Juan Ponce Enrile to join them in retirement.  Leave the governance to the young people who have benefited from your honesty and principles.

  • Rolly257

    A Big NO to the 3 kings of UNA…NO to any of their candidates.

  • Fancy Tan

    Tularan po nyo ang papa. Mga kabataan na ngayon ang dapat pumuwesto dahil sa takbo ng panahon. Dna po pang elders ang Senado at Congresso. Dapat npong mamuno ang mga kabataan upang makatugon sa hiling ng panahon.

  • katabay1106

    I will not vote for any candidate of UNA and TP because they are all corrupt politicians and most are members of political dynasty. Time to elect olthers.

  • ang_pagbabago

    Jamby samahan mo ng iphone yung ipad vote buying este promo mo and you might make the magic 12.

    keep up your unrealizable promises to the poor as well (free lunches etc.) 

  • UrHONOR

    HETO ang magandang paghahambing:  Jun Magsaysay vs Binay, Zubiri, Ejercito, Walis tingting, Villar, and the other Magsaysay wannabe.  Parang kinumpara mo ang champagne sa sarsi.

    VOTE CASIÑO kung hangad ay Malinis na Serbisyo.
