GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines — Team PNoy senatorial bets campaigned here on Wednesday with President Benigno Aquino III expected to join them later.

Re-electionist Senator Aquilino “Koko”Pimentel III, former Senators Ramon Magsaysay Jr., and Maria Ana “Consuelo” Jamby Madrigal, Aquino’s cousin Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV and former Representative Risa Hontiveros were present when the rally held at the city’s gym began shortly before 10 a.m.

Some candidates were again represented by family members.

Aquino was scheduled to arrive at 11:30 am.

Pimentel, like in previous sorties, belted out again his version of “Imagine” popularized by John Lennon.

The team was in Tacurong City, Tupi and Polomok, South Cotabato Tuesday and held three separate sorties there.

From General Santos, the team will then proceed to Davao to conclude its three-day campaign trail in the region.

    Because of his godly presence, GEN SAN and the whole of Mindanao swept the senate elections 12-0…..and then the next day the Tausugs stormed Malacanang and massacred its occupants.

    Dito pinakikita ng presidente ang  pagwawalang bahala ng tension sa Sabah, nakikita ang tunay na adhikain ng Abnoy Aquino administration sa ating bayan..puro mga trapo…

      I salute you Tausog people.
      Malaysians land grabbers/thief people; this is the beginning of your chaos. Mark my word. World and history knew what you did.
      What right do the Tausogs have on Sabah?
      Sabah is to the Tausogs like Tawi-tawi. For hundreds perhaps thousands of years, the Tausogs have travelled freely between Sulu and Sabah without restraints. Suddenly, they are told that they cannot enter Sabah without passports and visas otherwise they have illegally entered Sabah and will be deported. To the Tausogs, they have their own map in their memories handed down from their forefathers saying Sabah is theirs and part of the Tausog homeland. So, it is difficult for us to understand why the Kiram group swears they will stay in Sabah to the last man because in their hearts the place is theirs, their home, a heritage from their ancestors. We have difficulty accepting this because we are not part of this heritage nor do we share in the Tausog tradition. The Sabah case is very similar to the land being tilled by the barrio peasant who inherited it from his father and he from his father and their fathers as well, passing down for hundreds of years, then suddenly a rich man comes around showing a title to the land and forcing the poor peasant to pack up. And Pnoy tolerates this anomaly because his heart is not among the Tausog people. In fact, he appears more like the assistant to the Prime Minister of Malaysia and not President of the Republic of the Philippines of which Sulu Archipelago and the Tausog people are parts and parcels.

  • MeganF23

    Huwag iboto ang mandarayang si Zubiri pati ang tuta ni Arroyo na si Mitos.
    Kalimutan nyo na rin ang talunang si Gordon at Maceda.
    Pati na rin ang walang trabaho na si Nancy Binay at anak ng fake assassination para ma-declare ang martial Law. Forget nyo na rin ang anak ng convicted Plunderer.
    Walang kwenta ang UNA party puro pala samahan ito ng mga bugok na itlog na sisira sa ating bansa.

    @3Heat0 you are a paid commentarist/ propagandist. Kano ba bayad sayo ng Team Penoy. Baka galing pa yan sa tax money namin, ah! Lumalala ang Sabah standoff dahil si Penoy nangampanya imbes na ayusin ang gulo.

    Nagpiyesta ang mga bata ni Gloria na si Norberto Gonzales at Bobby
    Tiglao sa Sabah issue. Panay ang banat kay PNoy. Ang tanong magkano?

  • Guest

    Gonzales denied the accusation that he is one of the collaborators of
    the Kirams. Mukhang guilty?!

  • Gloria Wheelchairroyo

    Huwag iboto ang mandarayang si Zubiri pati ang tuta ni Arroyong kurakot na si Mitos.
    Kalimutan nyo na rin ang talunang si Gordon at Maceda.
    Pati na rin ang walang trabaho na si Nancy Binay at anak ng fake assassination, architect of martial Law. 
    Forget nyo na rin ang anak ng convicted Plunderer.

    Paanong di dudumigin ang rally ng UNA sa CDO eh pinahakot ng kaalyado
    nilang si Mayor Emano. Binusog na sa pagkain, busog pa sa pera.

  • Guest

    Matunog lang ang pangalan ni Erap sa Mindanao pero di ibig sabihin nun
    iboboto nila ang mga kandidato ng UNA.

  • Guest

    Bakit si Chiz Escudero matunog rin naman pangalan sa Mindanao, mas
    matunog pa nga name niya kesa kay Erap.

     

  • JasonBieber

    Hey most of the candidates mentioned have the most infractions or notices from the Comelec. But as usual nothing with happen to them because they work above the rules thanks to PNoy. Maybe while they are in Davao they at least visit the typhoon “‘Pablo” victims and maybe provide some foods and goods that they so badly need.
