Rep. JV Estrada: Banking on LP local officials’ support

MANILA, Philippines—Liberal Party campaign manager Sen. Franklin Drilon is not a happy camper despite the surveys showing administration coalition Team PNoy candidates dominating the top 12 slots in the senate race.

That’s because, according to opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidate Rep. JV Estrada, even LP members like provincial governors and municipal mayors do not believe Drilon’s hype of a 12-0 Team PNoy election sweep.

“Many local LP officials have secretly committed to support me. I’m sure Drilon is not pleased with this development, especially since he is going for 12-0,” said Estrada in a text message.

Drilon did not reply to the Inquirer.

Estrada said that while Team PNoy candidates had been ruling the surveys, taking between eight and nine of the top 12 slots, he expected the administration governors, mayors and other officials to be a major factor in the homestretch of the campaign.

“Of course, the ruling party will always be strong but it is highly impossible it will carry all the Team PNoy candidates. You cannot discount personal relationships and friendships,” he said.

Aside from Estrada, another UNA senatorial candidate who has managed to break the Team PNoy lock on the surveys is also counting on the support of LP members, specifically President Aquino and his sisters.

Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay, said she expected allies of her father in the “Yellow Army” to ignore party lines and vote for her in May. The Yellow Army refers to supporters of the late President Corazon Aquino.

Team PNoy has a full slate of 12 senatorial candidates while UNA has only nine.

    On their own and without their well known fathers, JV Ejercito, Nancy Binay and Jackie Enrile would practically be nobodies who will not even win as councilors in their cities. Their candidacies is an insult to the intelligence of Filipino voters and a proof of the contempt of whoever pushed them to run for the nation. Let’s campaign for their defeat.

    • MULEN

      The same is true with PNoy. He would have been practically a nobody were it not for his parents.

      • isidro c. valencia

        P-Noy is totally different from JV, Jackie and Nancy.

        P-Noy never dreamed of becoming the President of the Republic of the Philippines.. It is destiny. It is the people who wanted him to lead our country.

        For the three stooges, their money, gold, and make me believe story (fiction for the people pigment of imagination) that are offered to the people. Nothing else.

      • juan_luisjr

        very well said. kudos ! If pnoy had not been our president today, people should realize that it would be erap as president again. Let us count our blessings people even if the blessing in the form of our president is not a perfect human being. Never never vote a super corrupt person into public office.

      • nes911

        The issue is ejercito not pnoy. Out of order ka pare.

        Noy did not come from corrupt parents… thats the BIG difference!

      • jgl414567

        Were it not for Ninoy and Cory we would still be under a plundering and murderous tyrant you fool!

      • MULEN

        I just stated a fact which is undeniably true in response to a post. What’s wrong with that? Why the butthurt? Did I question the integrity of the Aquinos (Ninoy and Cory)? Chill out. Masyado kang high blood. Get off Pnoy’s d!ck for a change and better still, take your psychiatric meds LOL. Your paranoia is getting out of control. .

      • PIPOL_rd

        TALK TO YOURSELF MULEN..YOUR OUT OF YOUR MIND…

      • MULEN

        Now here’s another dolt who can’t even spell right LOL.

      • Luthmar

        OK lang, the parents were not corrupt and neither the president. Pls do not ever compare the Aquinos to the likes of Erap, Enrile and Binay.

    • $19543087

      I totally agree with you. I & my relatives & friends will not vote for these clowns! They represents the evil of political dynasty & an insult to the intelligence of the Filipino people. Knowing that the constitution explicitely prohibits political dynasty, their families knowingly & deliberately continued to flaunt the law. We don’t want their kind to lead our precious country! PLEASE DON’T VOTE FOR THEM!

    • jgl414567

      LET US ALL ORGANIZE AND CAMPAIGN IN THE GRASSROOTS FOR THE DEFEAT OF THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THESE TRAPOS AND THIS EARLY LET US ALL HELP CAMPAIGN TO THWART JEJOMAR BINAY’S NAKED AMBITION TO BECOME THE NEXT PRESIDENT BECAUSE IT WILL BE A DISASTER FOR OUR COUNTRY!

  • david

    kung secret support ke jv, di kaya “secret” din ang vote na makuha mo? har har

  • lolo_Jose

    HINDI ka mananalo JV!!! Alam ng mga botrante na ikaw ay isang ANAK SA LABAS NG SENTENSIYADONG MANDARAMBONG NA SI ERAP!!!

    At dahil anak ka ni Erap, mas malamang kesa hindi susunod ka sa mga yapak niya na mandarambong, babaero, lasengo at sugarol…HINDI pwedeng magbunga ang santol ng manga…

    NO TO JV EJERCITO!!!
    NO TO ERAP SA MANILA!!!
    NO TO UNA!!!

    • Guest

      Isa pa si JV di gumagastos sa mga babae niya. Si Jinggoy laging binibili ang mga matipuhan niyang babae.

    • Guest

      A LOUD NO to any ex-convict or criminal in our government. The three stooges (and the rest like Marcos etc) and their offspring should never be allowed to run a public office or government position. Enough with all the criminals and pocket-filling leeches..VOTE WISE!!!

    • jgl414567

      NO TO BINAY NO TO ENRILE MGA PAHIRAP AT SALOT SA BAYAN!!!!

    • Luthmar

      Right. Yung secret account sa Virgin Islands nalimutan na. A vote for UNA candidate will be a waste and a complete disaster for our country. It is frightening.

  • droccu

    I’m sure UNA (especially Toby Tiangco) is more unhappy about JV’s statement above as it only shows that he’s going at it on his own-junking his other UNA teamates. It’s looking like “kanya kanya na” (to each his own) ang UNA with Jejomar leading the way pushing only for Nancy using his “official” functions as a convenient excuse in not attending UNA sorties. He finds no need for it since Nancy is on top and such sorties may cause him political (he cant go on hitting the popular Pnoy publicly) as well as financial (he is expected to help with UNA’s cofffers, right?) capital.

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    No to political dynasties.

  • Guest

    Ang pagkakaiba lang nina ni JV at Jinggoy, si JV matipid si Jinggoy
    waldas. madalas nagka-casino dun sa Macau.

    • Luthmar

      Seguro nga. Si JV may secret account sa Virgin Islands. Si Jinggoy ang pinangsusugal pera ng bayan. At the end of the day pareho lang kasi both moneys come from the govt. coffers.

  • berong es

    with the amount of money that UNA is pouring in manila especially on the months of April and may na maraming activities like pistahan,paliga,etc,theres no doubt ERAP will win the election.

  • Guest

    Just a reminder to JV Ejercito, pls include in your SALN your offshore account sa BVI. Be transparent please.

    • Luthmar

      Transparent daw say kung lahat ng candidate ay magpapakita din kanilang SALN.
      Professor yata nya si Corona nung araw. Pareho ang kanilang line when it comes to SALN. Do not vote for this, ay ewan!

  • Guest

    Wala na ba kayong maisip na ikoment kundi Erap, Jinggoy and JV. Mabuti
    pa huwag na ang natin silang iboto. Kasuya na e.

  • salvador contreras

    Off course Drilon should go for a 12-0 for his party mates. That loyalty as a Liberal. On the other hand, is Tiangco of UNA going for 3 out of 12? My God replace him pronto! JV Ejercito should not take this sitting down – or it is okey as long as you are in the magic 12?

  • marivon

    The guy carries the DNA of a womanizer a drunkard and a stooge. Why would anybody even consider him for a senate seat? But on hind sight, In the Phil nothing is impossible. We even had the father stooge as the President. Idagdag pa ninyo ang DNA ng isang black dude at DNA ng isang tirador noong panahon ng martial law. It is really more fun in Philiipine politics. Balik tayo sa “dark” ages pag nanalo sa 2016 si burack oh bum ah

  • TAGA-MASID

    DEAR FILIPINO PEOPLE – “do not vote for, JV EJERCITO ESTRADA, NANCY BINAY & JACKIE ENRILE”, they’re only after for power & money. KAWAWA TAYONG TAUMBAYAN.

  • PIPOL_rd

    MAS BAGAY KE NANCY BINAY EH MAGING DH SA SAUDI…WALANG KAALAM-ALAM ITO
    KOMO VICE YON TATAY EH AKALA NA NYA MAGALING NA SYA..NI UTAK WALA ITO
