Posted by akosistella on April 28, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – Retired generals who joined the 1986 People Power revolution and served the administration of the late President Corazon Aquino have re-grouped to protect the votes of her son, Liberal Party (LP) presidential candidate Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

“We are prepared. Our group has prepared to protect and ensure that each of the Filipino voter’s vote shall be counted,” said retired Major General Ramon Montaño in a press conference on Wednesday.

The former chief of the now defunct Philippine Constabulary, which was later absorbed into the integrated Philippine National Police (PNP), said Aquino is the clear choice of the Filipino people.

‘Hello, Garci’ boys well entrenched for May 10 polls

MANILA, Philippines—The men who worked closely with disgraced former election commissioner Virgilio Garcillano as he rigged the 2004 presidential elections are still well entrenched for the May 10 polls this year.

Together, the so-called “Hello, Garci” Boys control Mindanao, which is home to more than 10 million registered voters.

“Hello, Garci” became a popular phrase to refer to how President Arroyo addressed the commissioner when she was caught on tape asking Garcillano to ensure her a lead of at least 1 million votes over her rival, Fernando Poe Jr.
