Party-list ads cost P24M, use Villar ‘basura’

Mangahas raised two questions about Akap Bata’s Dagat-ng-Basura ad. Is it subliminally endorsing Villar and thus circumvents the allotted airtime for each candidate? Is the party-list a marginalized group?
Mangahas pointed out that Akap Bata could afford to spend so much on TV ads even if it was representing a marginalized sector.
“It’s very ingenious!” Mangahas said of the group’s use of Villar’s ad that has had a viral effect on the public.

“The ads will really show that contrary to rumors or misinformation or disinformation, support and funding to Gibo [his nickname] Teodoro’s successful presidential campaign is there,” Toledo said.
