MAMBUSAO, CAPIZ, Philippines—Team PNoy senatorial candidate  Cynthia Villar was unfazed by any black propaganda being waged  against her and her family, saying their business dealings are legitimate and they have nothing to hide.

Villar’s husband, outgoing Senator Manny Villar, made headlines after he was reported as one of  the personalities who allegedly owned a secret offshore corporation in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

But Mrs. Villar  branded the report as another black propaganda.

“Black propaganda. Kasi open naman kami. Our business dealing is very open [to scrutiny] (It’s black propaganda. We are transparent),”  she told reporters after attending a campaign sortie here.

“We are a public company. We invest. We don’t have to hide anything kasi kinita naman naming yan sa magaling na paraan (because we legitimately earned that),” she said.

“Wala naman tayong tinatago at saka hindi naman tayo takot. Talagang ganyan ang kampanya, maraming black propaganda (We are not hiding anything and we’re not afraid.  That’s how the campaign really works; black propaganda will intensify).”

Rather than be affected by the controversy, Villar said she chose to focus on her campaign despite her high ranking in recent surveys.

“Alam mo, hindi bale nang somobra ang boto mo, huwag lang magkukulang,” she added.

    Do you think a normal and intelligent voters would vote for you, knowing who and what you are? People would never forget what you have said about nurses.

    Transparent? ‘com’on, eh yung C5 extension anomaly nga lang tinago na sa katotohanan, senate funds ni villar ang pinundar para lumawak ang negosyo nyo!

    kung outgoing na si manny, bakit ka pa tatakbo kung hindi interest lang nyo ang pakay nyo.

    mayaman na kayo, saan mang paraan nyo ginawa, siguro retire na kayo sa pulitika.

    kung matino ang adhikain nyo, siguro mas bibilib ako sa inyo kung di ka na tatakbo.

      Yung C5 extension na hindi nakakabit sa C5?

    She’s right about this actually. Voters know naman if the negative things are true or not. That’s why she is always in he magic 12. She helped a lot of people and if she actually wins, she may extend her help to more Pinoys. Hindi lang sa knya but sa ibnag candidates, people are smart enough na black prop lang ginagawa against them.

      oo nga naman. tsaka parang nagsasayang lang ng effort at pera kung sino man ang naninira sa kanya. paang kilala ko na kung sino yun. :)

  • lafet

    I think black propaganda nga yun. Parang wala naman dapat itago ang mga Villar kasi kilala na magaling sa business noon pa. I admire her now bec. di siya nagpapaapekto kahit unfair ang ginagawa sa kanya. Well, pag sikat ka talaga marami talagang susubok manira sayo.

    “Wala naman tayong tinatago at saka hindi naman tayo takot. Talagang ganyan ang kampanya, maraming black propaganda”

    > Wala naman talaga reason para matakot e. Tama din na mahconcentrate nalang sila sa mga campaign nila because di naman believable yung mga propaganda na yan.
