Reversal of votes: 12-0 for Team PNoy in Maguindanao

BULUAN, Maguindanao—You can’t win ’em all. But the President’s Senate candidates might just win over to their side the province that gave Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s candidates a questionable 12-0 sweep in the 2007 elections—this time legitimately, Maguindanao Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu said on Friday.

Mangudadatu, Mr. Aquino’s party mate in the Liberal Party, said much had changed in the province since the President took over in 2010, noting that the political reforms put in place by the administration are sure to win it for the 12 Team PNoy candidates.

“[The people] are already being moved by change. They want what the President is doing. That’s why the candidates carried by the President will get the people’s votes,” Mangudadatu said before the start of a Team PNoy campaign rally yesterday led by President Aquino.

“They will all win,” Mangudadatu added.

Former Gov. Andal Ampatuan Sr. is one of Arroyo’s coaccused in the electoral sabotage case filed against the former President in connection with her alleged instruction that the local leader ensure a 12-0 victory in Maguindanao for her candidates in the 2007 senatorial elections.

It has been almost four years since Mangudadatu’s wife, loved ones and supporters as well as dozens of journalists were killed in what could easily be the worst case of election-related violence in the world.

The principal accused are led by Ampatuan, the province’s avowed strongman then, and his sons, former Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Gov. Zaldy Ampatuan and former Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr.

“There has been a huge change. The people no longer want to be taken advantage of. Now, they want to be the ones in control,” Mangudadatu said. “We’re generally peaceful here. There’s no more coercion.”

Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III, one of the apparent victims of the alleged fraud in Maguindanao and in the ARMM, asked the political leaders and supporters who gathered at the rally to give him a full six-year term.

Pimentel served less than two years of his term because of electoral fraud. Former Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri resigned in 2011 after serving four years of the six-year Senate term that was rightfully Pimentel’s.

“I hope to leave Maguindanao with fond memories this time,” Pimentel told reporters before the campaign rally held at a gymnasium in this town.

“You know, a 12-0 sweep for administration candidates in Maguindanao is possible but it should be based on the real votes of the people,” Pimentel added.

Addressing the crowd, Pimentel said the prospect of all administration candidates winning was quite possible, even without cheating.

“It can be done legally and legitimately,” Pimentel said.

President Aquino, Pimentel, and other administration senatorial candidates Sen. Loren Legarda, former Sen. Ramon Magsaysay Jr., Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara, former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros and Benigno Aquino IV were in Maguindanao to give support to the reelection bid of Mangudadatu.

Mr. Aquino and the Team PNoy slate are also pushing for the candidacy of ARMM officer in charge Mujiv Hataman for the governorship of the autonomous region.

        Yun nga lang from the looks of it, surveywise, yung hate mo kay PNoy di oobra. His candidates are sure winners, you know, whether it’s acceptable for you or not. It’s a case of bidas against contrabidas kung baga sa pelikula. Kung sa movies, bida pa rin ang nananalo against all odds, ito pa kayang ang popular sentiments ang base ng panalo ng mga bida ni PNoy. Apparently, this is fact than imagination. Sorry na lang!

    • Concur_Dissent

      not only in Maguindanao… sa makati lang ata mananalo ang UNA

      • Bisdak_kaayo

        noong una impossible ang 12-0 sa panahon ni GMA nayong naging possible na sa PNOY ADMIN.

        saan na ba yung sinabi nilang statistically improbable dati?

        dati hindi sila naniniwala sa COMMAND VOTE ng MUSLIM SULTANS katulad
        ng block voting ng INC. ngayon naniniwala na.

        wala pinag kaiba. ang laking sampal sa mukha.

      • rene

        ang sinasabing statiscally improbable ay yung mazero ang isang kandidato, yan ang nangyari noon…hindi improbable yung 12-0…

      • Bisdak_kaayo

        halungkatin mo man ang returns sa maguindanao noong 2007, walang na zero na kandidato ng opposition at provincial wide level, nagkazerohan lang sa iilang presinto.

        Get your facts straight.

      • markotres

        Bisdak dakdak,hindi pag sinabing 12-0. Zero ang mga kalaban ng mga team Pnoy…or walang nakuhang boto ang sino man sa kanila .Iba naman ang pagkaunawa mo eh…Labo mo. 12-0 means nanguna sa unang 12 puesto ang mga kandidato ng Team Pnoy ,,,intiendes …

      • Bisdak_kaayo

        hay, ikaw manahimik sa kadakdak, I was just answering the argument of your kakusang RENE na statistically improbable ma zero ang kandidato.

        ang kakusa mo ang pagsabihan niyan, mali mali ang argumento. That argument is coming from your same side, hindi sa akin.

        huwag kang sumabat sa usapan kung hindi mo naintindihan ang contexto.

      • Bisdak_kaayo

        basahin mo itong resulta sa maguindanao in another Inquirer article. Nazero ba si Pimentel laban kay Zubiri?

        Zubiri wins Maguindanao; Pimentel pins hope on SC ruling
        June 28, 2007 02:16:00
        Nikko Dizon Jerome Aning Leila Salaverria Edwin Fernandez
        Inquirer Mindanao Bureau

        Results of the recanvassing of the municipal certificates of canvass (CoCs) from Maguindanao’s 22 towns gave Zubiri a province-wide total of 195,823 votes against Pimentel’s 67,111.

        Iyan ang malaking sampal sa mukha. Claiming na zero ang opposition.
        Huwag kayong magpatawa.

    • Bisdak_kaayo

      possible ang 12-0 kay PNOY pero kay GMA hindi.

      saan na ba yung sinabi nilang statistically improbable dati?

      dati hindi sila naniniwala sa COMMAND VOTE ng MUSLIM SULTANS katulad

    Be very wary, baka Mangundadatu is just another another way of spelling Ampatuan. 12-0 is possible but technically improbable. The LAW of Probability say so.

    • Concur_Dissent

      12-0 does not necessarily mean the opposition did not get a single vote, it just means that there were more voters for team pinoy than team una. Are you thinking that UNA will not garner a single vote in some towns and municipalities in Maguindanao the same way the Anti-GMA candidates got in 2007?

      If results will show that UNA candidates got 0 votes in most municipalities in Maguindanao like what happened in 2007, talagang may dayaan…sobrang garapal si GMA noon, pati watchers ng kalaban ni GMA lumalabas na bomoto sa mga candidato ni GMA… but the possibility of UNA not getting even the 12th spot is very possible…

    • Bisdak_kaayo

      patawa ka talaga. hindi lahat ng presinto may personal watchers ang bawat senador, but I agree bawat presinto may PARTY watchers. Huwag kang magpatawa hindi bomoboto party straight ang mga tao kabilang diyan party watchers. Provinicial wide hindi na zero ang opposition sa katunayan 67thousand ang boto ni Pimentel sa maguindanao. Nagkazerohan lang sa iilang presinto but not at province wide.

      Get your facts straight.

      • Simplify1

        ikaw ang nagpapatawa.. hindi ka bale naniniwalang may mga prisinto sa maguindanao na talagang walang bumoto sa opposition… ang vote buying ni ampatuan simple lang… dahil wala siyang tiwala na boboto sa kanya ang isang binayarang botante, ang patakaran nya ay wag palabasin ng bahay sa araw ng election!

    The Aquino administration is really conditioning the electorate’s minds. They are using manipulated survey results or bold statements such as “they will all win” for what they could accomplish in the elections with the help of the PCOS magic.

    This could only be possible is Mangudadatu will replicate the demonic Ampatuan. Did Mangudadatu ever think that Aquino never moved to solve the worst brownouts in Mindanao? Silly bootlicker.

  • JasonBieber

    No surprise here. Another rally another excuse for PNoy and his team to attack GMA.

    They bring up an accusation from the past that has no basis. The case from the accusation that they speak of has already been thrown out by the judge and is merely being as black propaganda against GMA.

    If their accusations had basis then good but unfortunately for them their accusations are not supported by any evidence.

    Hope for Maguindanao but with same politics that Mangudadatu brings to the province, there wont be so much reforms except switch of power. The 12-0 for team PNoy will be all possible as with GMA then. In this province, whoever sits in the palace get the votes for his candidates. The poorest province in the country needs values reformation. The clan of Ampatuan and Mangudadatu remains to be powerful and will not produce reforms in the province. A man like General De Leon made wonder at MSU-Marawi then though he was an outsider. Maguinadao needs a good manager not politician to run its affair. For now, the abuse will remain whoever leads Maguindanao because they do not have a choice.

    12-0 for LP in Maguindanao. Funny Filipino politics!

  • Stuubs

    12-0 for team P-Noy is just another insult not only to the people of Maguindanao but to the whole nation ! just like the Ampatuans of the past, this time it’s the Mangudadatu’s turn to use its poor citizens votes to serve the agenda of the Mangudadatu’s and its allies. President P-Noy is just another corrupt politician for allowing this to happen.

    With less than a month before the elections, it seems that the mud raked up is all being slung to the direction of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidates and the dirty
    tricks seem to get dirtier as the day of reckoning nears.

    The latest target of the regurgitated issues was UNA candidate Cagayan Rep. Jack Enrile on an issue that is nearly as old as the various unproven allegations of killings against former President Ferdinand Marcos.

    Using a Wikileaks cable, the detractors of the son of Senate President Juan
    Ponce Enrile tried to resurrect the allegations of Enrile’s involvement in the
    death of a shooting victim in 1975.

    The revival of the issue was a low blow, considering that Wikileaks documents
    were, as admitted by the group running the Wikileaks operations, obtained
    surreptitiously and the veracity discussed in it cannot be ascertained since no
    sane US official would admit that the leaked cables attributed to them are
    authentic.

    Thus, what the cable represents are unverifiable reports that can be classified
    as rumors since nobody would vouch for it.

    Among newspaper outfits, a rumor becomes a story only if the facts in it are
    cross-checked and certified true by at least two independent sources.

    Not satisfied with just that report, the same dirty tricks group spiced it up
    with a so called eyewitness to the murder, and there went the running priest
    again, like always, getting himself in the news with such hoary claims that
    come too late in the day.

    The contents of the Wikileaks cable, despite the aim of founder Julian Assange
    of complete transparency in the US government, are mainly pure gossip stuff
    such as those contained in some movie tabloids which are interesting to read
    mainly because of the controversies raised.

    Digging up Wikileaks is the easiest and safest way to hold a demolition job
    against a candidate who is rating within the Magic 12 in surveys.

    The cables have a sense of detective work undertaken although there is none
    since these are readily available in the Wikileaks Web page and citing it
    removes the need for anybody among the dirty tricks group to come out in the
    open or produce a source for the smear job.

    An earlier attempt to link another UNA frontrunner San Juan Rep. JV Ejercito to
    suggestions of hidden wealth through a supposed international research on
    offshore trust accounts needed the paid participation of a group claiming to be
    run by investigative journalists.

    It’s another sleazy demolition job since the allegations again were not
    verifiable as these were claimed to be part of voluminous documents obtained
    from a Wikileaks-like operation, through stealth.

    The effort appears to paint the UNA candidates as villains of Noynoy’s straight
    path by identifying them with practices of past corrupt administrations.

    The smear jobs fit exactly with Noynoy’s incessant reference to the need not to
    allow the crooked practices of the past to interfere with his campaign for good
    governance.

    It is consistent with his preoccupation with harassing political enemies and if
    possible, placing them behind bars without evidence, and even without probable
    cause.

    If anything, the vindictive practices of Noynoy should be a warning for the
    electorate to be vigilant against efforts, possibly through deceit and fraud,
    to sweep the senatorial elections since the Senate appears to be the last
    branch of government which struggles to remain independent from Noynoy as both
    the Supreme Court and the House apparently are all in the control of Noynoy and
    his allies.

    The urgency of dominating the Senate is too obvious with the Operation 12-0 of
    Team PNoy campaign manager Franklin Drilon and the elaborate demolition work on
    the UNA frontrunners.

    But the level of dirt being thrown up plus the sloppy pretensions only point to
    the administration as culprit of the spade work.
