Aquino promises to dance if he wins

Posted by akosistella on April 7, 2010


MANILA, Philippines—Liberal Party presidential candidate Benigno “Noynoy’’ Aquino III vowed to dance like South African leader Nelson Mandela if he succeeds in seeing President Macapagal-Arroyo leave after nearly a decade in office.

“One of my idols is Nelson Mandela. When our brothers led by Nelson Mandela ended apartheid, he was so euphoric that he could not help himself but dance,’’ Aquino told reporters. “I think I’d be euphoric too if we end our calvary under Mrs. Arroyo and I would dance.’’

Mandela’s victory in South Africa’s all-race election in 1994 was made memorable by his effusive celebration after giving a victory speech.

‘Seedy’ crowd also for Aquino; he leads bean count

MANILA, Philippines—The “seedy” crowd has spoken.

Just as in the latest Pulse Asia survey, Liberal Party standard-bearer Sen. Benigno Aquino III is leading the not-so-scientific “munggo survey” being conducted by a bookstore chain.

A month after it started the unorthodox poll, Pandayan Bookshop said its munggo rankings as of March 31 showed Aquino ahead in 25 of their 31 branches in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
