MANILA, Philippines — The recent dismal results in a recent poll by many of United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) coalition’s senatorial bets was a “wake up call”, one of its candidates said on Thursday.

San Juan Representative Joseph Victor Ejercito said that the sudden drop from the Magic 12 of several UNA candidates should be a “wake up call that we have to double our efforts.”

“It only means that reality bites that it is difficult to match the admin’s machinery,” he said.

Unlike past survey results wherein UNA candidates grabbed many spots in the Magic 12, the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey had Liberal Party (LP) candidates grabbing most of the places in the top 12.

Senatorial aspirants Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice Presidwnt Jejmoar Binay; Ejercitos, son of former President Joseph Estrada; and former Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri were the only UNA candidates who made it to the top 12.

Cagayan Representative Jack Enrile and Senator Gregorio Honasan, who have done well in past surveys, dropped to 13th and 15th respectively.

Ejercito said that they were hoping to turn things around as UNA rolled out a heftier schedule this weekend, with candidates trooping to Mindanao after holding sorties within the National Capital Region (NCR) this week.

But he denied that their packed schedule had anything to do with the recent survey results, saying that these sorties have been planned ahead and were part of UNA’s regular schedule.

  • mabyrik

    Hoy JV, hindi ka ba naambunan ka ba ni Jinggoy? Kaya gusto mo ring maging senador at magtayo ng sariling foundation para doon dalhin ang magiging pork barrel mo, tama ba ako JV? 

    Si Erap may foundation, nabuko, hayun nakulong. Si Jinggoy mayroon, nabuko, sana makulong din. 

    Kanya-kanya ba kayong kurakot na mag-aama? Hindi kayo nagbibigayan ng balato?

    Galing ng utol mo, kunwari, paiimbestigahan. Sino sarili niya?

    Confirmed na nasa UNA ang mga mandarambong.

    HUWAG IBOTO ANG MGA MANDARAMBONG. HUWAG IBOTO SI JV, SI HONASAN, NANCY, JACKIE, ZUBIRI AT MITO!!! GUARANTEED NA MGA MIYEMBRO NG MANDARAMBONG INC.

    Laugh about it, shout about it when you’ve got to choose. Every way you look at it, you lose.

  • generalproblem

    survey is not a perfect science it depends on who pays the surveyor hehehhe.

  • Guest

    Kung ano-ano naman kasing sinasabing di maganda nina Erap at Tiangco kina Erap, Loren at Poe. Kaya nabubuwisit na rin ang 3 sa kanila at sa UNA

  • Jan Gahanding

    Paanong di sasama ang loob eh walang nagawa si Erap nang tanggalin si
    Grace Poe sa UNA. Di man lang dinipensa.

  • marionics

    at least hindi siya nagpapalusot na nadaya ang survey

  • Philcruz

    The two UNA candidates (Honasan and Jackie) closely tied to the coat tails of Senator Enrile slid down and out of the Magic 12 in a big way. No need to ask why. But there’s a major lesson here. If you want to run, cut the apron strings and be your own man. Run because of your qualifications and not because of someone else’s. That someone else’s reputation could turn to mud and so will yours.

  • pipsirho

    It is not MACHINERY, but it is all about CHARACTER and INTEGRITY!! That EXPLAINS the DISMAL results for UNA!!! Gets mo JV kahit malabo yung statement mo.

    CHARACTER and INTEGRITY of the 3 KINGS or BIG 3 of PLUNDER, CORRUPTION, POLITICAL DYNASTY!!!

  • indiosbravos2002

    Im just glad Honasan wont be coming back to the senate. Wala naman syang nagawa kung hindi buntiutan si Enrile, Thing is baka naman magcoup d’etat na naman si loko para mabalik sa power.

    • Philcruz

      Honasan has become like a dull knife.  He won’t be able to cut anything much anymore.. not even a loaf of bread. He will go down with his boss .. who has already lost his sheen.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XALR35ENV2XKV327BZGZ7Q5Z5Q Ernesto

      di na mag coup d etat yan ,di na beleive mga military sa kanya,kasi niloloko lang sila ni honasan.ngayon lang nila alam.

  • Guest

    Matagal nang masama ang loob ng pamilya ni FPJ kay Erap dahil noong 2004 presidential elections di niya tinulungan sa kampanya si Da King.

  • doublecross

    ‘wake-up call…..don’t vote estrada, enrile and binay.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3RMNEZCQQHXWOQRXJROQ2CORFU Homer Guo

    • aristeosj

      hahaha!!!!kuha mo kabayan!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3RMNEZCQQHXWOQRXJROQ2CORFU Homer Guo

    palitan na kasi ang name na UNA. DULO nalang as in Dysfunctional Unpatriotic Lawmakers Ohhh! Yung huli dahil sa mga pusong binabae na kandidato nila.

  • Guest

    Mismo. Pati ang running mate noon ni FPJ na si Loren Legarda, kasama rin
    sa pinatanggal ni Erap sa line up ng UNA.

  • rh_caballero

    Di talaga. Siya pa ang nanguna para matanggal si Grace Poe sa UNA.
    Multuhin ka sana ni FPJ.

     

  • Guest

    Actually ayaw naman talaga ni FPJ tumakbo sa pagka-pangulo noon. Pinilit
    lang siya Erap na hindi naman siya sinuportahan. Haysss!

     

  • Guest

    At ano ang nangyari sa UNA ngayon, sila ang nawalan. Ang nakinabang ang Team Pinoy. Mali ang desisyon nilang ibasura ang 3 guest candidates.
