DASMARINAS CITY, Philippines — Senatorial candidates of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) coalition kicked off their campaign here on Thursday, in an attempt to win over the nation’s second vote-rich province.

Present in Paliparan 3 village were Nancy Binay, Senator Gregorio Honasan, Zambales Representative Milagros Magsaysay, Mmargarita “Tingting” Cojuangco, and former senators Ernesto Maceda and Juan Miguel Zubiri.

Magsaysay said that coming second to Cebu in having the most number of voters, Cavite was very significant to UNA.

And despite the coalition’s stand not to get involved in local politics, Magsaysay said that in Cavite she was sure that they could transcend political parties.

She said that they expected support from Cavite officials “not based on partylines but (based on) friendship.”

The crowd went wild as Binay entered the covered court at past 2 p.m.

But the crowd’s reaction to her arrival was unparalleled when her campaign team flung free t-shirts to the audience–eliciting shrieks from even the old women who stood to catch the freebies.

The crowd’s reaction to Cojuangco’s freebies, bundles of “walis tingting” for name recall, was less frantic but old women and wives were seen slowly making their way near the stage to get the cleaning tools.

The response peaked once more when more free t-shirts were thrown by the team of Cagayan Representative Jack Enrile who was however a no-show.

San Juan Representative Joseph Victor Ejercito was also not present but his introduction as son of former president Joseph Estrada–and also free t-shirts–were met with frenzied response.

  • quirinomayer

  • UrHONOR

    NATURAL!  Bigyan ka ba naman ng FREE na ganinto at FREE na ganun, sinong hindi ang matutuwa to the bones?  Sige, hakutin-ninyo-ng-hakutin ang ibibigay sa inyo ng mga karakoles na yan….marami pang ipamimigay yan dahil doon lang sa tatlong anak ng 3 itlog ng bayan, baka yumaman pa kayo sa give-aways..tapos iboto ninyo yong gusto ninyo.  Tiyak na HINDI ninyo iboboto yong namimigay dahil walang paltos yan na babawiin yan sa inyo sa pamamagitan ng pagmamani-obra ng mga pondo na galing sa alkansya ng bayan….ibig sabihin, sa bulsa ng mamamayan….mamimigay yong kanang kamay, tapos yong kaliwa, mangungupit.  Dalubhasa ang 3 itlog na namumuno ng UNA sa gawaing yan.  Sa katunayan, sa narinig ko, sumusulat ng libro ang tatlo tungkol sa, “How to make billions without trying”.

    • Mr Moonlight

      i cant help but agree with you, youre absolutely right

  • boybakal

    Cavitenos are intelligent people. It is home to revolution heroes.
    They know what they are talking about.
    Cavitenos are genuine people, no pretensions. They show what they feel.

    So, when they show their support for UNA with enthusiastic response, they mean it, it is genuine.
    Like Cavitenos, UNA are genuine people, no propaganda, no photoops, they are real, genuine.
    Vote for genuine people.
    Vote for UNA…unang una walang pagkukunwari, ramdam mo ang pagmamahal nila sa taong bayan.

    • caliber45

      UNA sa kababawan at pang iinsulto sa mga mamamayan. Ano akala nyo mabibili nyo sa t-shirt ang mga caviteno? Ganun kababaw ang tingin nyo sa kanila? UNA sa martial law, UNA sa corruption, UNA sa pagtanggap ng jueteng money/convicted for plunder. UUNAhin ang mga sarili! Pwe!

  • Mr Moonlight

    Looking at the UNA senatorial lineup, no one in his right mind would vote for them,
    the names enrile estrada ejercito binay maceda zubiri mitos honasan will not do any good for the country but would rather fatten their secret bank accounts. oh my oh my
    Korina Sanchez may have aptly found the right description for binay – maitim na maligno

  • superlucky2

    UNA – – UNA SA CORRUPTION, REJECT ALL UNA CANDIDATES..

  • deleonmarlon

    Kawawa naman ng mga naluko ng mga UNA candidates. Binay, Enrile, Ejercito maawa naman kayo sa taong bayan. Huwag nyo ng lukuhin pa ang mga tao. Lukuhin nyo nalang mga tatay nyo.

    If you give away something of value (to poor people, a tshirt is a thing of value), isnt it vote buying?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VUT4YW36QJREEGOBH5IYKNQMKI Kokak

    The crowd went wild whenever the candidates give away something. But is there any news about what their agenda are?

    Milagros agsaysay said that they expected support from Cavite officials “not based on partylines but (based on) friendship.”

    This reveals the kind of patronage politics these candidates brings. At pinagmalaki pa. Kaya hindi umuunlad ang pilipinas dahil ang pulitika ay inaasa sa kakilala, kaibigan, at kamaganak hindi sa prinsipyo o plataporma.

    What partylist does Nancy represent, is it kasambahay?

    “The crowd went wild as Binay entered the covered court…”

    Akala siguro ng mga tao mamumudmod ng mga condo units si Binay. Sangkaterba kasing condo units ang naipon ng tatay nya sa Makati mula sa mga developers na nag-aaply ng mayor’s permit.

    Laking insulto ang ginawa ng UNA sa mga Cavitenos. Cavite is a land of heroes. Buhay at prinsipyo ang pinaglaban nito sa kasaysayan.

    Ngayon mababalita na naghihiyawan sa tuwa ang mga cavitenyong dumalo sa rally ng UNA dahil pinagbibigyan nyo ng T-shirt? Matatalino po ang mga Cavitenyo, naghahanap din po ng plataporma at pag-unlad.

    Kung pamumudmud lang ang ipinunta nyo dito at hindi prinsipyo, makakauwi na kayo.

    • for_Prosperity

       Sa totoo lang, hindi mga purong Caviteno ang mga naghihiyaw na yan. ‘Yan yung mga binayaran mula sa iba’t ibang lugar para dumalo sa kampanya nila at magsisisigaw.

  • BOYPDAF

    3. FUTURE PRES. JEJEMON OBinay: $25Billion Philippine Reserve in 2016. (Biggest Jackpot in the world! – easily accessible by one phone call of the Future  President Jejomoron O’Binay.)

    We have to put a stop to the BINAY’s corruption. This election will be a test whether
    we Filipinos have made progress in choosing our leaders.
