DAGUPAN CITY, Philippines – The administration’s Team PNoy senatorial ticket won’t engage the United Nationalist Alliance in a contest on which of them draws a bigger crowd when they hold separate rallies in Baguio City on Sunday.

“Hindi kami makikipag-sabong,” Team PNoy campaign manager Senator Franklin Drilon told reporters Friday before the start of a campaign rally in this city.

President Benigno Aquino III joined some of his handpicked candidates during the first rally of a two-day swing through Pangasinan, which has more than 1.6 million registered voters.

Aquino was also expected to attend the Team PNoy rally in Baguio City.

Asked whether there was a contest as to which could mobilize the bigger crowd, Drilon said, “That’s not one of the standards.”

While Team PNoy candidates dominate the election surveys, the group has yet to draw thousands of people the way UNA did in places like Cebu and Cagayan De Oro.

    Of course neither side is not that much concerned about numbers at the rallies per se. They are free shows; and people will watch. What they are more concerned about is how the meat in the seats will translate to marks on a ballot.

  • JaePablo

    Pareparehas lang naman kayong mga trapo. Kahit wag na kayong mangampanya at mag rally, kayo kayo na lang din naman ang tumatakbo…

    Drilon: No crowd contest with UNA.

    Of course. Drilon the big fat glutton is already taking up too much space. He’s crowding out the crowd. Ang baho pa ni Baboy Drilon, lalo na pag pawis, crowd repellant talaga.

    Sa Cebu, andyan ang hakot queen na si Gwendolyn Garcia.
    Sa Cagayan De Oro andyan si Mayor Bading Emano, kakulay ni Erap, na nag utos na magtapon ng mga bangkay sa basurahan nung Sendong.

    Mauna na ang UNA. Una sa pagnanakaw.

  • lolo_Jose
