SAN JUAN, Pampanga — From being “kingmakers,” jueteng lords are now the “kings” and “queens” in this home province of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Catholic priest Eddie Panlilio said on Friday.

And so at a rally held at the Heroes Hall here, led by no less than President Benigno Aquino III, Panlilio called on the President to put an end to the illegal numbers game “jueteng” in Pampanga.

“Ipamahala sa PCSO ang tunay na paglalaro nito at bigyan ng aleternatibong kabuhayan ang mga nagtatrabaho sa jueteng,” said Panlilio who is running for governor under Team PNoy against incumbent Lilia Pined.

PCSO stands for Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

In a press conference before the rally, Panlilio said it was surprising that in 21 cities and municipalities of Pampanga, some candidates were running unopposed.

“It’s a belief amongst many people here, that unless you are supported by the jueteng lords, it’s very difficult to win. And we’d like and work hard to reverse that impression,” he said.

Aside from “jueteng politics,” Panlilio said the effect of political dynasty was being felt now in the province.

He said many of those running for executive and legislative posts were either mother and daugher/son, father and daughter/son, or husband and wife.

    Kawawa si Fr. Ed Panilio. He had his chance and he squandered the public goodwill of the Cabalens. He showed his true color too soon, kaya sya napatalsik. His discoloured face betrayed him too soon. Now all Fr. Ed Panilio can do is make wild accusations about jueteng lords, kings, queens and other imaginary enemies. He may well be talking about tarot cards. Kawawang Fr. Ed Panlilio.

      Echos!
      Kapangpangan ako ne!
      Kinasuhan sya ng pandaraya, na impossible nyang gawin dahil hindi naman syan ang incumbent Governor, at ang mga tumulong sa kanya ay mga madre sa halos kampanya nya- paano sya makakadaya.

      Nung recount hindi  nya ginamit ang pondo ng bayan- hanggang sa maubusan sya ng pondo at nagrecount na wala syang representative- In the end na-declare na talo sya ng Comelec ni Gloria.

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

        Pero natalo pa rin si Ed, kasi mas maraming hindi naniniwala sa kanya.

  • elgeepee

    Nothing is impossible Among Ed, just continue the fight and miracles can happen again. Andyan ang Panginoon natin.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/W6PX5DQ7YX5WG2N7NMC3GIRQLQ peter

    bakit nung naging governor sya hindi napahinto ang jueteng dun? Bakit PADRE di mo ba kaya? tapos mag run ka ulit? for whta? para maki share sa jueteng? anak ng jueteng naman yan oh!!!!

    • filipinaskoh

      Actually nagkaroon noon ng joint effort pero talagang malakas ang force ng Jueteng, dahil mga mayor ng bawat municipalities ang nagpro-protekta sa jueteng.

      Sa amin 3 times a day ang bola- lantaran pa iyan- nung kay among ED medyo nagpatago-tago ang jueteng pero meron pa rin. Nag lie-low ang jueteng nung panahon nya, kaya sya pinagkaisahan ng mga mayor dahil dun.

      • C2Tmasyas

        san kaya galing yang info na yan? sabi ba ni mayor? bilib sana ako at magaling sana plano nyo ma stop yun jueteng eh. kaso kaya nyo ba bigyan nang ibang trabaho yung mga nagjujueteng? puro lang satsat puro paninisi wala naman maibigay na trabaho. nong kwentang katwiran yan.

      • scorpio15

        Ang trabaho ay hinahanap at hindi kusang darating yan at kakatok sa iyong pintu-an.

      • C2Tmasyas

        yun ang may opening na trabaho para sa kanila eh. kung kaya mo bigyan nang mas malaking sweldo sa abot kayang skills nila yung magjujueteng ngayon, aba’y sasaludo ako sayo. nuon pa man kaya nang magbigay nang livelehood ang pamprobinsyang pamahalaan at pang national man. kaso lang, ngayon para masabing may nagawa, ipapahinto kuno yung jueteng. tapos non? may trabaho ba? wala, edi balik ulit don. bobo nalang naniniwala sa mga kandidatong susugpuin daw ang jueteng. 

      • $20733759

        You are correct. But aside from the factors you mentioned, the presence of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who was then the sitting ppresident, a known supporter, friend and ally  of the present governor (even partner ?) should also be reckoned with, specially in exacting obedience from the police/military officers. Among Ed was isolated , to say the least, by coordinated disrespect and disobedience from them.

    • Mr Moonlight

      hey sick edyot, who was the president when Fr. Panlilio was governor of Famfanga and as everyone knows GMA and Pineda has extraordinaryrelationship hindi ba? moron!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/EB22QC56GI7RREMPMNCWRWZ2BA Rhoel

    Nung tumakbo si Fr. Ed. Naka lumang puting Tshirt lang sya.. Aba nung naging Governor na, Puro Burberry na orig na ang damit nya? Ano ba kamo Among Ed? Bigyan ng alternative ang mga kobrador sa jueteng by giving the operation to PCSO? Diba Pari kayo? Diba sugal din yon?

  • basyong

    another promise just to get elected.father, just blessed them all for all their sins and happy days will be back!!!!!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/EB22QC56GI7RREMPMNCWRWZ2BA Rhoel

    PNoy, Plastikan lang yan. Diba ikaw ang Presidente ng Pilipinas? Bakit kaya di mo rin mapa hinto ang jueteng? Malamang may direct deposit karin sa Swiss Bank. If theres a WILL theres a WAY. Syempre NO WILL ka to stop Jueteng, NO WAY din mag STOP ang direct deposit mo sa SWISS BANK.

    • Mr Moonlight

      You are sick motherf+cker, you must be a love child of human and animal that is why abnormal ang brain mo

  • http://www.facebook.com/beng.atibo.3 Beng Atibo

    Nobody can eradicate jueteng. Parang sabong din iyan and it has been with the Filipinos since time immemorial. And local folks patronizes jueteng. Maraming nakikinabang diyan, gobernador, mayor, barangay captain, pulis. You can name all people involved with it. Hindi kaya ni PNoy itigil iyan, dahil pati siya at ang partido niya nakikinabang diyan.

      gugustuhin ko pang iboto ang sinasabi mong jueteng lord kung marami naman ang natutulungan kesa paring tinalikuran ang paglilingkod sa Dyos at pumasok sa maruming politika, kita mo naman hindi angkop ang mga sinasabi nya bilang dating pari.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/NYKIOQEDTUD4FPPPVHP6XMFNEA Raul

        Eh di butohin mo. Dyan ka yata nabubuhay. Tinalikuran ni Ed ang paglilingkod sa Tao at Diyos dahil sa Jueteng Lord. Ikaw kasi nagpapadumi sa pulitika. Sa salita mo palang madumi na.

      • maypakialamtayo

        walang pakialaman yan kung sino ang gusto kong iboto, ikaw umpisahan mo nang mamili ng boto bugok.

    Pampanga had given him a chance and he blew it. it would be better for him stay as a priest now.    no one wants him to be in the capitol as well as the rest of municipalities of Pampanga. There is no place having another autocratic guy on the capitol today, the whole nation had already made a mistake for having one. 

  • boybakal

    Fr. Ed Panlilio hits rise of ‘jueteng lords’ to ‘kings’, ‘queens’ from ‘kingmakers’….

    Among the priests, this Priest Panlilio is not to be trusted.
    Imagine, He confesses to the whole world about Jueteng, Jueteng Lords, King and Queen without proof in his province.
    Nobody confessed to him about this jueteng and yet he announced it to the whole world.

    He is really an Among or Godfather of Jueteng.

  • UrHONOR

    HAIL Ed Panlilio!!!!  PAX is proud of you.  We’ll not let any stone unturned so you can continue your unfinished biz earlier in the province of where pands reigns.

  • boybakal

    Sa lahat ng alagad ng Diyos tong si Pader Among ang naiiba.

    alam mo among ed, mawalang galang po sa inyo, kung gusto po ni pnoy na mawala ang jueteng mawawala po yan, bakit di po ninyo itanong sa kanya bakit di mawalawala yan, ipapaalala ko po sa inyo, noong kasagsagan ng erap jueteng scandal (bago sya natanggal) iniutos ni erap na alisin ang jueteng bakit nawala kahit sandali lang at bakit di nyo itanong kay pnoy bakit ang daming kubrador sa buong pilipinas, dahil po sa walang mga trabaho, wag na po tayong maglokohan, kung ganyan ang sinasabi nyo wala po kayong kapag-a-pag-asang manalo dahil lahat ng mananaya kubrador na nakikipag sapalaran sa jueteng ay hindi kayo iboboto, ilatag nyo na lang kasi ang plataporma nyo, wag na kayong manira ng ibang tao, taong simbahan pa naman kayo, at bakit yung dati ninyong adminstrador na si DABU biglang yumaman at ngayon tumatakbong kongresista ng pampanga, saan galing ang yaman nya? wala ba kayong balak na sya ay tanungin?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NYKIOQEDTUD4FPPPVHP6XMFNEA Raul

      Ganun??? Kung meron kang ebidensya wag dito e daldal dalhin mo sa korte. Para niloloko mo na rin sarili mo. Si Glorya mayaman na sakim pa rin ganun ikaw at si DABU. Walang pagkakaiba.

    among ed is singing the same tune today, same as the tune he sang when he first run for governor. he should change his campaign strategy now if ever he wants to win. stand on your own feet at huwag kang aasa kay pnoy na siya ang magpapanalo sa iyo. pupulutin ka lang sa kangkungan pagdating ng mayo

  • Komen To

    Recycled campaign. What happened during your term Among? You saved all the people’s money, spent nothing on projects and welfare and allowed Nanay Lilia to spend the savings on several new hospitals, roads, bridges and medical, burial assistance to the needy kapampangans. Now whom shall we vote Among – the talker or the doer?

  • marcelo_4161

    among ed papano po kayo mananalo e wala po kayong kakampi na mayor. dapat maghanap po kayo ng kakampi sa mga tatakbong mayor. alam naman po ninyo na hindi mabubuhay ang mga mayor ngayon ng parahas ang laban. sana nga manalo kayo para maging lalong maayos ang pampanga.

  • mawalanggalangpo

    Among Ed Panlilio achieved a lot during his 3 year period as governor of Pampanga. Transparency, good governance, accountability were modeled by his administration. President Aquino is doing them now. Had he, Ex-Governor Panlilio got the good grace of the Provincial Board then he could have caused a giant leap forward to the Kapampangan people. But just like the US executive branch, the legislative branch could make it hard for a political unit achieve goals no matter how much benefit they are perceive to bring about.

    They say that Among Ed was not a good politician. If he was they think he would have won the cooperation of the Pampanga Provincial Board. Recall that he was also subjected to a lot of electoral issues. A lot of his three year term was spent in defending himself on those cases. Now he does not have any mayor running with him in Pampanga? Who will watch his votes in the municipalities? Well, he is a priest, God will help him. But the incumbent governor is a regular church goer too. We will see which one God will choose. Nobody can cheat God, even the lords.

    Is another Marcos needed so someone should just appoint local officials, since people are so hesitant or afraid to run for public office? Abangan ang kapupuntahan ng demokrasya sa Pampanga.
