Volunteers to be mobilized nationwide to protect Gibo votes
Posted by akosistella on April 19, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – Thousands of volunteers for administration presidential candidate Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro will mobilize nationwide on election day to protect his votes, organizers said yesterday.
Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal said he would be giving a free lecture on poll watching and other related election rules to Teodoro’s volunteers on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. at the CSP Building along EDSA in Mandaluyong City.
He said the lecture was sponsored by the Mahal Ko Bayan Ko Women’s Group headed by Evelyn Kilayko.
Meanwhile, thousands of Caviteños poured into the streets of their province and later converged at a giant proclamation rally held at the General Trias Convention Center last Saturday night to show their support for Teodoro.

Lakas-Kampi defections: ‘Villaroyo’ or ‘Gloriaquino’?
MANILA, Philippines–Those who are saying that the exodus of administration candidates to the Nacionalista Party (NP) is proof that Manuel Villar Jr. is the secret candidate of President Arroyo should re-think their assumptions.
The Liberal Party (LP) of Benigno Aquino III has practically the same share of defectors from the President’s party, the Lakas-Kampi, a headcount done by abs-cbnNews.com/Newsbreak shows.
As of April 15, less than a month before the elections, 42 incumbent governors, congressmen, and city mayors have either bolted Lakas-Kampi or declared support for presidential candidates other than Lakas standard-bearer Gilberto Teodoro Jr.
