FORMER President Joseph Estrada, who is seeking the presidency under the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino, yesterday said Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III of the Liberal Party is his toughest rival.
“Siya (Aquino) talaga yung pinakamahirap na talunin sa eleksiyon. Sa tingin ko ang No. 1 ang mahirap talunin,” Estrada said.
Aquino has been topping surveys, followed by Sen. Manuel Villar of the Nacionalista Party.

THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) yesterday admitted it cannot disqualify politicians running for local positions who will join victory parties for boxing champ Manny Pacquiao.
“If it’s a local candidate, because of the Supreme Court ruling, they are not yet considered candidates for purposes of premature campaigning and, therefore, they are not yet within the limitations of the law,” said Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal.
In Cabanatuan City, NP presidential bet Manny Villar said Pacquiao told him by phone that he will immediately come home to campaign.
