MANILA, Philippines — The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) campaign is taking its senatorial candidates to Cavite on Thursday as the coalition attempts to court over 1.6 million voters of the province and raise their ratings after the heavy blow they received in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

UNA will try to win over Cavitenos this afternoon as the “constructive opposition” makes its way through Dasmarinas City, General Trias and Trece Martires City.

UNA secretary general and Navotas Representative Toby Tiangco said that their candidates sought to get the support of Caviteno voters, majority of whom were residing in Dasmarinas City (305,767), General Trias (109,951) and Trece Martires City (49,147).

But the senatorial candidates would steer clear of local politics in Cavite, considered a “free zone” among local politicians, he said.

Only Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay; San Juan Representative Joseph Victor Ejercito, son of former President Joseph Estrada; and former Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri made it to the Magic 12 in the latest SWS survey.

The nine were from the administration-backed Team Pnoy.

UNA’s Cagayan Representative Jack Enrile, son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, and Senator Gregorio Honasan, dropped out of the 10.
slid down to the 13th spot from his previous standing in the top 10, ranking 13th and 15th respectively in the latest SWS poll.

More sorties have been lined up for UNA. From March 2 to 4 candidates are expected to be in Mindanao.

But Tiangco said that their packed schedule was “not related” to the drop in their candidates’ standing in the SWS survey.

He said that UNA initially set sorties in Mindanao in March, with plans to start in Cagayan de Oro and head on over to Bukidnon and Iligan.

But Zubiri’s request for a March 2 sortie in Bukidnon prompted the coalition to revise the initial schedule to accommodate the former senator’s request.

“As early as January the CDO-Bukidnon-Iligan leg has been set because of the specific date of March 2 that Sen Migs requested. Just had to revise it to Bukidnon-CDO-iligan because of the advance team,” he said.

    Pag majoprity galing sa UNA siguradong mawawasak ang nakamit ng bansa natin na progreso sa ekonomiya at malamang na mahirap na naman ang kabuhayan imbes na gaganda pa sana. Iboto ang Team Pnoy para may suporta ang senado at mas madali ang pagpasa ng batas para sa matuwid na daan ni aquino. At isa pa mga kurap ang nasa UNA basahin ang isyu sa PDAF nina Enrile at Jinggoy na siguradong naibulsa nila

  • sigbinko

    reject TEAM UNA!!!!

  • mabyrik

    Hayan Jackie and JV, magpaliwanag kayo sa tao kung dapat pa kayong iboto. 

    Ang utol mong si Jinggoy JV ay doon sa sariling bulsa napupunta ang pork niya na kunwari di niya alam. Asus, lolokohin na naman ang mga tao.

    At ang tatay mong saksakan ng corrupt Jackie, titingnan pa raw iyong record. Bakit, iyong utang ni nasirang Cayetano na P37M, alam na alam, samantalang mahigit ng 20 years nangyari, itong nakawan noong 2011, hindi matandaan?

    Hoy mga magnanakaw, gusto pa ninyong dagdagan ang mga magnanakaw na nandoon pa sa Senado ngayon tulad ni Jinggoy, Ernile at Revilla, maawa naman kayo sa bayan natin. 

    Totoo talagang nasa UNA ang mga pasanin ng bayan. Si Erap, si Enrile at lalo na si Binay na ubod ng kakapal, puro pagkakaperahan ang nasa utak, tapos sasamahan pa ng mga anak na corrupt din. Ano na ang mangyayari sa Pilipinas?

    HUWAG IBOTO SI JV, HONASAN, NANCY, JACKIE AT ZUBIRI. MGA ANAY ANG MGA ITO

    SA MGA MAILENYO, HUWAG IBOTO ANG PLUNDERER NA SI ERAP. CONVICTED CORRUPT ITO, GUARANTEED CORRUPT DAHIL MAY TATAK NA.

    UNAng-UNA sa corruption…

  • 100345roselia

    As long as the general perception of the electorate on UNA’s political leaders (Binay/Estrada/
    Enrile) that they’re the epitome of immorality, adultery, graft/corruption, smuggling, drunkenness,
    political dynasty, fake hero/ambush, human rights violator their senatorial candidates will continue
    to experience low in their poll ratings. Given the recent poll trending results, the electorate are
    subtly sending the message to UNA senatorial candidates like “Tell me who your leaders are &
    I will tell you who your are?”  Or another way of interpreting it is “Ang manga daw ay di mamunga ng santol.”

    Dahil sa sobrang kadaldalan ni Tiangco, sa mga paninira niya sa 3 guest
    candidates, ayun lalo pang sumikat sina Chiz. Kasalanan nila yan.

    Who has the best chance from Senators 13 to 15 to drop Zubirri?  I hate this guy most of all.

  • Guest

    Si Erap lang ang sumisira sa UNA, umaakto kasi siyang diktador at di
    muna kinakausap sina Binay at JPE bago magdesisyon.

  • doublecross

    si tiangco….adik!

  • pipsirho

    3 KINGS, now known as BIG 3, mirrors what UNA stands for!!! KING of PLUNDER . . . KING of CORRUPTION . . . KING of POLITICAL DYNASTY or BIG in PLUNDER . . . BIG in CORRUPTION. . . BIG in POLITICAL DYNASTY!!

    Now, would their CHOICES of SENATORIAL CANDIDATES be DIAMETRICALLY DIFFERENT from their own CHARACTER?

    Ang kapal mo Zubiri isoli mo yung mga kinita mo sa senado bilang pekeng senador  !!
    Napakawalanghiya mong mandaraya ka  !!

  • Guest

    Di kayo nagkakamali. Tinulungan ni Erap si GMA na manalo noong 2004 presidential elections. Siyempre may kapalit yun, ang paglaya niya.

    Do NOT vote for these:
    LP – Bum Aquino, Trillanes, Cayetano, Hontiveros
    UNA – Binay, Estrada, Enrile

    Masama raw ang loob ni Susan Roces kay Erap? Bakit? Sabagay si FPJ
    masama rin ang loob sa kanya noon bago siya namatay.

  • rh_caballero

    Sa sobrang asar ni Erap kay Chiz Escudero, idinamay na niya pati si Grace Poe, pinatanggal na rin sa senatorial ticket ng UNA.

  • Guest

    Korek. Kasi ang sinuportahan ni Erap noong si GMA at di ang matalik niyang kaibigan na FPJ. Kawawang FPJ.
