MANILA, Philippines-The campaign trail is expected to heat up in the country’s summer capital when the two major political alliances hold their respective sorties there on Sunday.

The administration coalition’s Team PNoy and the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) are both planning to court votes in Baguio City on Sunday, based on their campaign schedules, which were released to the media and confirmed by their spokespersons.

Team PNoy will come from La Union before proceeding to Baguio, while UNA will have a Pampanga sortie on Saturday before its Baguio leg.

UNA campaign manager Toby Tiangco said the alliance did not deliberately schedule its Baguio rally to coincide with that of the Team PNoy coalition’s.

Tiangco explained that UNA was heading to the City of Pines on Sunday because its top leader, Vice President Jejomar Binay, would be there the same day on official business.

UNA set its schedule to conform with that of Binay’s so the latter could join the campaign rally, he said.

Tiangco also said he was not worried about the possibility of going head to head with Team PNoy, noting that UNA’s sorties had been well attended.

“That is OK with us. We will see which of us can draw the bigger crowd,” he said in a phone interview.

Tiangco believes UNA will attract many people to its rally, adding that it has a local ally in Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan.

UNA earlier said it had been drawing larger crowds compared to the administration coalition, and claimed that the latter has been struggling to get people to attend its campaign rallies.—Leila B. Salaverria

    Ano ba ito? Showdown between the two teams? What are these guys trying to prove to the public? Pakitaan kung sino ang mas popular o kung sino ang mas magaling na magdraw ng crowd? 

    I hope that there will be no confrontation because it could be bloody. Mainit ang ulo ng Pinoy when it comes to politics. 

    It is more fun to watch the campaign on television. No chance na mapukpuk ang ulo, unless si misis ay contra partido baka mapalo sa ulo si mister.

     “UNA earlier said it had been drawing larger crowds compared to the
    administration coalition, and claimed that the latter has been
    struggling to get people to attend its campaign rallies.”

    UNA is DRAWING LARGER CROWDS because people want to have a CLOSER and FIRSTHAND LOOK at the FACES of CORRUPTION, PLUNDER, POLITICAL DYNASTY. The people also want to see the faces of the 3 KINGS: KING of PLUNDER . . .  KING of CORRUPTION . . .  KING of POLITICAL DYNASTY or as they being called lately as the BIG 3: BIG in PLUNDER . . . BIG in CORRUPTION . . . BIG in POLITICAL DYNASTY!!!

    Nilaglag na ni Erap si  FPJ noon tapos ngayong nilaglag
    din ni Erap si Grace Poe sa UNA. Anong klaseng tao ba itong si Erap?

  • Guest

    Mas tinulungan pa nga ni Erap si GMA noon kesa kay FPJ. Siyempre ang
    kapalit noon ang pardon ni GMA sa kanya in 2007.

  • Guest

    Kaya nga magtataka ka rin na si Erap, isang convicted plunderer, pwede
    pa palang tumakbo sa pulitika, pwede pala yun?

  • Guest

    Walang prinsipyo yang si Erap. Kayang ipagkanulo ang mga kaibigan niya tulad
    na lamang ni FPJ di ba?

  • JasonBieber

    So basically, Binay will be continuing his bid for 2016 and PNoy will be continuing his attacks on GMA right?

    What’s the point…sometimes, if not most of the times, politicians are so predictable in their decisions and actions.

  • disqusted0fu

    It will be like a film festival in Baguio as it will be filled with a bunch of celebrities, spearheaded by none other than the showbiz President himself, Pnoy. Just let us know once real politicians decide to run for elections. 

    Aside from the fact that there are only a few good choices from these 2 groups, it might even be the PCOS machines that will decide who wins in the elections. So we are on a lose-lose situation.
