MANILA, Philippines—Re-electionist Sen. Jinggoy Estrada says his father, deposed President Joseph Estrada, could emerge the winner in the mudslinging between leading presidential candidates Sen. Benigno Aquino III and Sen. Manuel Villar.
Jinggoy Estrada, the incumbent Senate president pro tempore, has expressed confidence in Joseph Estrada’s recent modest increase in his survey ratings while Aquino and Villar exchange barbs over who the secret administration candidate is between them.
“[It’s a] good sign. It means one is going down while we are going up,” Jinggoy Estrada said of the most recent Social Weather Stations survey that showed his father gaining four percentage points and Villar slipping by six.
Erap camp says Villar ad a plagiarism
THE Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) yesterday accused Nacionalista Party (NP) standard bearer Manuel Villar of plagiarism for copying a political ad called “Truth” used by Argentinian Ricardo Hipolito Lopez Murphy who ran for president in 2007.
Plagiarism is the use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own original work.
“The concept, visual cues and even the execution are identical. There is no other way to describe Sen. Villar’s latest ad called Scroll but a cheap rip-off of the original,” PMP spokesman Ralph Calinisan said.
