Common ad for rival bets



BUTUAN CITY—Rival senatorial candidates from Team PNoy and the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) are set to appear in a rare TV advertisement next week.

The ad was prepared by the White Vote Movement (WVM) an alliance of Catholic lay organizations and is hoped to boost chances of the candidacies of the 10 senatorial aspirants during the final stretch of the campaign.

“At this point, all endorsements will be crucial,” UNA’s Nancy Binay told reporters during a break at her ticket’s campaign sortie here late Wednesday night.

Binay missed the sorties of UNA in Agusan del Sur and Agusan del Norte earlier that day because she had to appear for the ad in Parañaque City from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

She said all candidates endorsed by the WVM, except for Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III, were present during the shoot.

Besides Binay and Pimentel, Team PNoy’s Antonio Trillanes and Cynthia Villar, and UNA’s Gregorio Honasan, Richard Gordon, JV Ejercito, Mitos Magsaysay and Juan Miguel Zubiri were also endorsed by the WVM.

    You can always judge a group by the endorsements that they make.

    “At this point, all endorsements will be crucial,” UNA’s Nancy Binay

    Inferring from this statement, it only means that this so called Catholic Vote is almost non-existent at worst or extremely marginal at best.

    To all those well intentioned senators like Ramon Magsaysay and Risa Hontiveros, please dont lose heart, your good works especially your support for the RH Bill will not be forgotten. We will campaign hard without pay for your victory this May 13.

  • PlundERAP

    UNArroyo party leaders and senatoriables are an alliance of adulterer, plunderer, murderer, election cheat and criminals. If an official can cheat his wife surely they can cheat and steal from other people.
    I believe Pope Francis will not endorse anyone from UNArroyo party.
    But Velarde and CBCP endorse them in exchange of money and Pajeros. No wonder the Catholics in the Philippines are losing their faith.

    Malimutan ko na lahat sa listahan ko wag lang si Jamby Madrigal dahil bet ko ang matapang,masipag at matalinong tulad niya

  • Vin Gutierrez

    Mas sigurado tayo kina Jamby,Loren at Grace Poe compared sa ibang kandidatong alam mong pagpapayaman lang ang habol sa pulitika

  • Janch

    Hindi na talaga nagdidiscriminate ang CBCP. Kahit sinong trapo ang tumakbo basta’t anti-rh ikakampanya.

  • BonnieBailey9

    wala naman kwenta yan si Binay, paasa lang tayo kapag nanalo yan. kahit isang batas yata walang alam yan eh.

  • Carmoney

    Jv and binay doesnt deserve to be in the senate, parehas kurakot ang ama.
