Hyped UNA-Team PNoy face-off in Baguio fizzles out

BAGUIO CITY—President Aquino’s candidates attracted a crowd of less than 1,000 on the Melvin Jones Open Field here in the much-hyped face-off with the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) that had the summer capital anticipating which slate would have the bigger audience.

Vice President Jejomay Binay’s candidates on the opposition UNA slate held their own rally at the Baguio Convention Center nearby that Team PNoy spokesman Ben Evardone chided was easy to fill with its capacity of just more than 2,000.

In contrast, Evardone in an earlier statement said the Melvin Jones venue could hold 5,000.

Aquino joined the Team PNoy candidates on stage at 5:40 p.m., more than an hour after the rally started.

Sen. Franklin Drilon, Team PNoy campaign manager, said the administration coalition was satisfied with the crowd, which he pointed out looked small because of the wide-open space.

Drilon placed the turnout at 3,000 as of 5:30 p.m. but it could have been less.

The UNA crowd was estimated at around 1,000.

“We are satisfied with the crowd considering that we didn’t bus people (hakot),” Drilon told reporters who had sought his reaction to the sparse crowd.

Drilon said the Liberal Party-led coalition was not bothered by the fact that Baguio was under the control of an UNA stalwart in the person of Mayor Francisco Domogan.

“We’re not affected and we’re confident that we will win in Baguio,” he said.

Reelectionist Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano tried to make light of the situation by saying that many people turned out for the administration slate’s rally.

“But because the economy is so good many of them went to buy ukay-ukay (used clothes),” Cayetano told reporters on the sidelines.

Other candidates in attendance, apart from Cayetano, were Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III, former Sen. Jamby Madrigal, Benigno Aquino IV and Risa Hontiveros.

Binay to Vatican

Unlike Aquino, who personally endorsed his senatorial candidates on stage, Binay missed the UNA rally because he had to rush back to Manila to prepare for his Vatican trip the following morning to attend Pope Francis’ installation.

Both leaders were present at the graduation ceremony at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA).

Instead of attending this year’s PMA graduation rites, senatorial candidates from both camps spent Sunday morning campaigning around downtown Baguio, including Session Road and the public market.

The local supporters of Team PNoy began the day by staging a ritual feast at Burnham Park to draw blessings to their senatorial candidates, as well as the administration’s Baguio candidates.

They butchered two native pigs for a ritual called “debon,” which invites the spirits of their ancestors to bless the candidates.

Livers and bile

Jayson Nagayos, a 90-year-old mambunong (ritual leader), said the feast was successful, after reading good signs for the administration candidates from the appearance of the livers and bile of the sacrificial pigs.

Former President Joseph Estrada of UNA rode on a campaign float mounted on a pickup, hurling candy and shaking hands with people who approached him on Session Road.

Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco, UNA secretary general and campaign manager, said they never intended a showdown. “It’s purely coincidence on the part of UNA because we wanted Vice President Binay [to attend] and we had to adjust to his schedule,” Tiangco said in a news conference.—With a report from Desiree Caluza and EV Espiritu, Inquirer Northern Luzon

    Baguio’s high altitude and climate should be less conducive for langaws to fester. And yet LP’s campaign rally in Baguio attracted swarms and beelines of langaws. LP must really stink to be visited by so many langaws. It certainly helped that Baboy Drilon has a tendency to sweat profusely and stink a lot. Come to think of it, Evardone may be right after all. In terms of langaw, LP clearly won the crowd contest.

  • laking_baguio

    Mayor Domogan’s first name is Mauricio, not Fransisco (shabby reporting). And Evardone doesn’t know what he’s talking about, maybe it’s his 1st time in Baguio, but Baguio Convention Center has a bigger capacity than Malcolm Square. At best, Malcolm Square can only accommodate more or less 300 people. The fact that people still went to the convention center even if it’s out of the way, compared to Burnham Park or Malcolm Square, says a lot. I saw ordinary people getting off jeepneys near Sunshine Park and still have to walk all the way to the convention center, so excuse me Drilon, hindi rin naghakot ang UNA.

    Numbers is a exact science. The CM of the administration should review its strategy and from a common tao perspective, the issues of RH, Sabah and dynasty obviously will have a great bearing in the elections among senators this coming May 13.

  • herokiller

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !! Evardone !! Malayong mas malaki ang Baguio Convention Center kesa sa Malcolm Square. More or less 300 people lang ang kayang iaccomodate ng Malcolm Square unlike the much spacious Baguio Convention Center. FYI Sen. Drilon. Nagpunta po ako both sa Melvin Jones Grandstand and sa Baguio Convention Center para pakinggan ang Team PNoy at UNA. As for my observation, MALAYONG PANAGINIP NA UMABOT NG “3000” ang crowd na dumalo sainyo. sa UNA naman as estimated is more than 2000.

  • bongarroyo

    wala kasing libreng snack at pabaon sa mga dadalo sa rally kaya kaunti lang ang pumunta di kagaya ng UNA may libreng snack na may pabaon pa sa bawat pupunta…

    • herokiller

      bakit wala akong nakuhang pabaon ? hahahaha. propaganda. xD i went to UNA and Team PNoy’s rally. wala naman pabaon. xD

    • speaksoftlylove

      Gunggong ka talaga, bongangaraw. May pakain pa nga ang Team Malisya.

      Ayan o, nagritual feast pa sila called “debon.” Marunong ka bang bumasa ng English?

      Ayaw lang talagang pumunta at kumain ang mga taga Baguio dahil takot mahawa ng yellowvirus ni PNoy.

      At higit sa lahat, may partida pa na binigay ang UNA sa Team Malisya. Si PNoy andoon pero sa UNA wala si VP Binay.

      Tingin ko nagkamali kayo bongangaraw. Kung di ninyo pinapunta si PNoy baka maraming dumating dahil di na sila peligrong matalsikan ng laway at mahawa sa idolo mo.

    Less than 1,000? Is that so?

    Bawasan mo ng kalahati dahil sa security detail at mga alalay nila baka 400 na lang more or less. Tsaka. sinabi ni Cayetano na yong iba nilang mjga supporters ay namimili daw sa ukay ukay at raisin bread kaya di dumating, pasaway. At least umamin ang kumag na konti lang ang dumating.

    Don’t worry, be happy Team Malisya. Lamang naman kayo sa SWS, Pulse Asia, at hocus PCOS.

    “But because the economy is so good many of them went to buy ukay-ukay

  • Greg

    Question: Why was my post moderated. Past posts weren’t. And then this one is moderated? What’s the rule….are posts “pre-screened” to determine if they are injurious to Inquirer or not. I hope Inquirer is not pre-censoring posts because that would be an affront to our right to free speech and expression.

  • Greg

    Interesting – – -I noticed that my post that had the word “i n q u i r e r” did not immediately get posted but rather will undergo moderator’s screening. Hmmmm….loooks like this newspaper’s moderator added a filter such that any post that mentions “i n q u i r e r” will first get pre-screened.

    • Loggnat

      That happened to my post too. I couldn’t figure out what filter word got it disapproved because it was a benign and clean posting. Now, it just dawned on me that the word “Inquirer” was in it. :))) Onion skinned media company is censoring unflattering and even good post on their newspaper by filtering the word “Inquirer”. That brought my respect to this media down another notch and will begin questioning credibility of this newspaper more than usual.

  • Greg

    The only one that hyped the baguio rally rivalry was this paper. Usually, it is the media that hypes things. So when it reports that it fizzled out, that’s because the hype never existed to begin with. This paper loves to sensationalize. Recall its title about “Tagle surges”. What a joke.

        A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Typical judgmental pinoy. Paul Aquino, a brother to Ninoy Aquino and father of senatoriable Bam Aquino, is a known supporter of Gloria Arroyo and an election strategist of her last 2004 election which election fraud and cheating is rampant. ^_^

        I therefor conclude upon your presumption that a Magnanakaw is a brother to a Mandaraya then, MANDARAYA- PAUL AQUINO is a brother of MAGNANAKAW-NINOY AQUINO (father of Noynoy Aquino (son of a magnanakaw)) ^_^

  • EdgarEdgar

    Like Mel Tiangco, when Toby Tiangco speaks everyone listens. When Toby Tiangco predicted that LP’s Baguio rally will be visited by maggots, fleas and flies, it happened. Toby Tiangco is a man of god, a son of the Jesuits, a devoted Opus Dei who understands the workings of the natural world and heavenly forces. He is made from the same mold as his fellow Jesuit Pope Francis. Toby Tiangco’s frugality or vow of poverty also became well known when he was caught by Philippine Star’s frontpage picture during the Impeachment Trial for wearing unmended socks to the court. His self-deprecating humor has warmed and won the hearts of many to his causes. Indeed, Toby Tiangco’s rise to national prominence from the humble fishing villages and salty marshes of Navotas is a welcome fresh breeze in our national politics. A man of courage, a man of substance, a man of style, a man worth his salt, Toby Tiangco will make a good senator in 2016.

    The provincial campaign will be crucial for the two parties. While surveys favor the LP, campaign crowds have it for UNA. PNoy is the main attraction of LP and Binay for UNA. The first is popular among metropolis but the later is a hit among the masa. The Erap magic and Enrile’s strong support in the North will be a factor also. The LP has the government machinery though and it would help. Ang talo ay ang tong bayan, ma LP or UNA man, ang mahahalal na senador ang lalantak sa pork barrel, additional MOOE, bonuses, committee honorariums, at liquidation nang MOOE na walang official receipt kundi certifications lang nang pag gasta. May mga bagong masisiba na namang ilalagak sa senado. Lawmakers? No they are not, they are the Pork Gullible..at walang mga paki sa bayan kundi iboto lang sila.

    walang artistang kasama kaya walang pumunta…di naman kandidato ang pinupuntahan sa campaign rally kundi yong dalang sikat na artista…

    You people never learn. In Baguio, National Candidates as well as actors and actresses are no attraction to the katutubo up there. Just say your good piece, do your work well, and they will remember you during elections. Bonggahan ka lang at wala ka pagdating ng elections. They got tired of these which they experienced during the Jun Labo days.

    Linangaw daw ang LP sa Baguio at ang UNA raw ang maraming suportado….. ang ibig sabihin niyan ay maraming Tanga at Bobo sa Baguio.

    Kawawang mga taga-Baguio….. walang gamot sa Katangahan at Kabobohan.

    kaunti lang talaga ang pumunta sa team pnoy kasi napakahigpit ang mga psg sa mga gustong pumasok sa burnham park kasi nandoon daw si pnoy. kasalanan yan ng psg kaya kaunti ang taong pumunta

  • Janch

    Balwa-warte lang yan.

    My opinion: parehong nilangaw.

    Pagod na ang mga tao sa kadramahan ng mga politiko. Kung nagdala sila ng artista o giveaways marami pa sigurong taong dumalo.

    “I am sure we have more supporters who are not here. Perhaps they are busy buying raisin bread at Camp John Hay or at ukay-ukay stores,” Cayetano said.

    Mr Cayetano, karamihan ay taga metro manila ang mga bumibili ng raisin bread sa CJH at nag-uukay-ukay sa sessio road at isa ka na roon. binastos mo ang mga taga-baguio

    Team AbNoy got a resounding backlash up there in baguio. People don’t come to their rally anymore. Come election time, their senatorial line-up will be trumped up by UNA. Surveys are just a piece of shit..err…sheet!

  • XY ZEE

    Nilangaw ba?
    Baka kasi pati langaw hirap kumbinsihin mg mag-aksaya ng panahon sa LP rally.

  • JasonBieber

    Yeah people are getting sick and tired and bored with the same old stuff coming out of PNoy’s mouth. It’s all talk talk talk and blame GMA and then some more talk talk talk and more attacking GMA.

  • JasonBieber

    It fizzled out because Filipinos maybe are starting to realize that Team PNoy rallies are getting a bit predictable. It will always be about GMA and finding some way to attack her and blame her for issues that she has nothing to do with.

    Time for PNoy and his Team to get a new issue to talk about other than GMA.

  • Kiro Nazakato

    Come election time, magkakaalaman. My fearless forecast is 12-0, in favor of team Pnoy! But they need to strategise and do the following things- 1.Introduce ni pnoy ng una sa mga rallies sina Risa Hontiverosm Jun Magsaysay, Jambi Madrigalm at even si Sonny Angara. More prominence at exposure sa kanila dapat para mag pole-vault sila kasama ng ibang mga kandidato sa Team Pnoy. Imagine Hontiveros, Magsaysay, Madrigald na wala sa senado. nakakalungkot naman un.2. Seguro kailangang mas organize at may sustansya introductions ni pnoy sa mga kandidato, lalo na sa senado. Off the cuff yata intros nya. minsan wandering yong thoughts nya, o walang masabi. Sayang pagkakataon maendorse by the president! 2. Organize ng husto introductions ni pnoy sa mga kandidato. Minsan kulang kulang information sa intros ni pnoy! 3, Let the other candidates also attend regularly. Bakit paunti ng paunt nag attend, and not even sendng proxy. Di bapat tulungan nila ibang kasama nila. Attending also the rally show they are united and rallying towards one goal. pnoy is doing everything para ma elect sila. tapos, yong iba walang malasakit or respeto sa presidente! gustong ma elect ng ilan na walang efforts! unfair sa ibang nagpipilit umattend all the time! dont be uncooperative, and overconfident!!!

  • pipsirho

    Could it be that Baguio residents / voters DO NOT FIND VALUE, and it is NOT WORTH their WHILE to LISTEN to PIGS* . . . from Team PNoy and UNA . . . MASQUERADING as “PUBLIC SERVANTS”?

    *PIGS => Politicians Insatiably Gorging Slop; SLOP in the form of Power, Public Funds, Dirty Money, PORK BARREL, Graft, Corruption, POLITICAL DYNASTY, Influence Peddling, Self Interest, SHAMELESSNESS!!!

  • buttones

    Why would anybody want to go to these exhibitions anyway? I mean why? What’s the
    point? The entertainment is dismal, the dancers pathetic, and there’s not even an
    open bar. Better to stay at home I say, and do something useful like kill a
    couple of pigs and inspect their entrails, that’s where the future lies, in a
    load of tripe….

  • Kiro Nazakato

    To ensure 12-0 landslide victory for team P-Noy may I suggest the following strategies:

    1. These candidates for senator namely Hontiveros, Magsaysay, Madrigal, and even Angara be introduced first in every rally, so they would be recognized by the public too.

    2. That introduction to these four candidates be scripted to detail their qualities and advocacy.

    3. That Team P-Noy underscores to candidates the importance of rallies with the President. It shows that the team is united. And that everybody is cooperating. Isn’t it anomalous that the President and other candidates are trying very hard to push the entire Team, while the rest are acting as free loaders. The other candidates also who have better popularity should carry or push the others in their own campaign activities.

    4. That P-Noy campaign team should strategise and re-strategise as they go on campaigning.

    5. Campaign managers should be appointed. They should be given to prominent liberal and coaliton members.

    Could it be that people have grown tired with the antics of politicians and are sending them a message? Could it be one that’s oft-quoted and attributed to Abe Lincoln: “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time?”

  • Amador Amor

    Those who will vote for UNA candidates are the same idiotic Pinoys who sent to office the likes of Revilla, Lapid, Sotto, Recto, Estrada and the likes. Majority of Pinoys sad to say vote for their favorite actors who they often see on TV and movies. Talagang wala ng pagasa ang Pilipinas dahil sa mga bugok na botante na pinipili pang iboto ang mga corrupt, babaero, mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno at mga hari ng yayabang. Kawawang Juan De La Cruz oras na manalo ang mga UNA candidates.

    This is a metaphor for our politics: a lot of hype, followed by a big fat flop, followed by furious spinning and convoluted explanations. I hope they at least paid the street sweepers extra to clean up after.

  • Brax82

    Yey Konti nalang ang mga Uto uto ng LP at UNA sa Baguio. BongArroyo and MOTO wag muna kayo umakyat ha, dito nlang kayo sa Manila magpaka Tanga total may mga kasama pa nman kayo dito kahit papano.

  • kokak

    PInagtatalunan nyo ang 3,000 o 1,000. Eh sa totoo lang nasa 150,000 ang botante sa buong Baguio CIty. Habang nagrarally kayo 98% ang hindi dumalo kasi hindi interesado sa t-shirts at sa kaawa-awang kandidato na kelangan pang sumayaw at magmukhang ogag para lamang mapansin.

  • kokak

    Using the traditional campaign sorties, the candidates are wasting 90% of their time to woe 2% of the voting populace. This is the digital age. Go figure.
