VP bets renew rivalries in TV debate
Posted by akosistella on March 22, 2010
[Sen. Loren] Legarda chided [Sen. MAR] Roxas for his history of shifting allegiances, noting that the LP (Liberal Party) senator worked as a trade secretary under the Estrada and Arroyo administrations before turning on President Arroyo while seeking the blessing of former president Joseph Estrada for his vice-presidential run.
In turn, Roxas said he never asked Estrada to resign even at the height of the president’s impeachment trial in late 2000.
“Hindi ako nag-iiyak-iyakan sa Senado nung hindi natuloy yung impeachment ni Pangulong Erap. Hindi ko pinag-resign si Erap. Maayos kaming naghiwalay ng landas. Usapang lalaki, nagkaunawaan kami,” he said.

Binay, BF clash over MMDA ‘human rights violations’
MANILA, Philippines – Bagumbayan vice-presidential bet Bayani Fernando and PDP-Laban’s Jejomar ‘Jojo’ Binay clashed over alleged human rights violations by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) under Fernando’s watch.
In ABS-CBN’s Harapan: The Vice Presidential Debate, aired Sunday-Monday over ANC, Channel 2, and Studio 23, Binay kicked off the first round by asking Fernando why the MMDA, under his watch, unilaterally confiscated and destroyed the goods sold by vendors during MMDA’s sidewalk clearing operations. He also asked why the MMDA removed “squatters” even without eviction notices.
