MANILA, Philippines—The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) said it was never worried about efforts to disqualify former President Joseph Estrada as it was a “non-issue” to begin with.

“We were never worried about that,” said UNA campaign manager and Navotas Representative Toby Tiangco in a phone interview after the Commission on Elections threw out the disqualification complaint against the former leader.

And the fact that there was even a disqualification case against Estrada was “an admission that President Erap has the upperhand,” according to his son, San Juan Representative Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito Estrada.

The young Estrada deemed such cases as harassment to “winning candidates.”

    Hmmm… if this was considered harassment, shouldn’t the Team Buhay / Team Patay tarps be considered as harrassment?

  • jgl414567

    Erap is the only convicted plunderer in the world who has no shame and the gall to still run for public office. Sukdulan na ang kawalanghiyaan ng taong ito!

    Sa mga BOTANTE ng Maynila, kung may HALAGA ang BOTO ninyo, at may PGGALANG SA SARILI, HUWAG ng AKSAYAHIN ang BOTO sa dating presidenteng NAPATUNAYNG MANDARAMBONG!!!

    Kung hindi niya nagawa yung mga sinasabi niya para sa Maynila noong siya ay presidente at pinakamakapangyarihan sa buong bansa, ,magagawa ba niya gayon ang mga ito? At bakit ngayon lang?

    Pabobola na naman ba kayo na tila walang isip???

  • Ron Castanaga

    Iboboto ba ang Maynilans ang down syndrome na Estrada na iyan. The ugliest candidate ng UNA(all of them are ugly anyway being chotchuwa of the corrupt GMA). Nakakahiya na talaga ang mga Estrada. Please lang, huwag ng iboto.

    The nerve of this Tiangco to say that it was never an issue. The guy was convicted of plunder. His character is very questionable, a womanizer, a drunkard, a gambler
    you name it the guy has all the qualities but being honest, sincere to serve the country and help the poor? NAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH. That will be asking too much.

    walang duda na walang mangyayari sa kasong ito, sabi ni tiangco….siyempre naman….nabili nang lahat ni haring lasenggong kuraptor na si demonyong estrada alias mandarambong, alias babaero, ang lahat ng huwes sa metro manila….tingnan n’yo ang mukha ni tiangco…’yan ang mukhang HINDI mo pwedeng pagkatiwalaan (kasama na ‘yong dalawa pang magnanakaw na hari) dahil kaya ‘yan naging spokesperson ng UNA dahil may ambisyon na tumulad sa mga amo n’yang tiwarik!!!….
