LP-Cebu, BO-PK slate get star power for sorties

BOTH the Liberal Party-Cebu chapter and its local ally, the Bando Osmeña-Pundok Kauswagan (BO-PK) will receive some star power in their sorties as the campaign season winds down next week.

Presidential sister and talk show host Kris Aquino arrived in Cebu City to endorse the candidacies of LP-Cebu gubernatorial candidate Hilario Davide III and his running mate, acting Cebu Gov. Agnes Magpale.

Aquino is also endorsing re-electionist Sen. Francis Escudero and senatorial aspirant Grace Poe.

A fellow Team PNoy candidate, Sonny Angara will be endorsed by actor Coco Martin as they join BO-PK rallies in Cebu City.

Aquino, who described Davide as “the shy and silent type”, said she met him during a 2010 political rally in Bantayan Island where she campaigned for his first gubernatorial campaign and her brother’s presidential bid.

“I told him then at backstage that he shouldn’t be shy, it was his moment to shine. Until now he’s still shy,” she said.

Davide said he was happy that Kris endorsed him and his running mate acting Gov. Agnes Magpale.

“She’s an Aquino and she has a lot of product endorsements because what she says and talks about are true and real,” he said.

For their part, BO-PK will hold mini-rallies featuring Team PNoy candidates starting last night until next week.

BO-PK founder and Rep. Tomas Osmeña of Cebu City’s south district said they don’t plan on holding a miting de avance. Angara was scheduled to appear with Coco Martin in one such mini-rally in barangay Mambaling last night.

Ramon Magsaysay Jr. and his endorser, actor Richard Yap, also campaigned in a mini rally held in a gymnasium barangay Canduman, Mandaue City last Thursday night.

The Mandaue City rally drew nearly 5,000 residents, who cheered when Yap, also known as “Sir Chief” in a popular noon TV drama, sang two songs for them.

Osmeña said he helped organize the mini-rally for Angara but would be unable to join it due to previous commitments. With Correspondent Renan Alangilan and Reporter Jucell Marie P. Cuyos
