LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines—With the surveys showing him leading in the presidential race, Liberal Party standard-bearer Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III is on his way to becoming the country’s first majority President since the return of democracy in 1986, Albay Governor Joey Salceda said.
“Noynoy will be the first majority president after 1986. That is what we see and it will be good for the economy,” Salceda, a former economic adviser of President Macapagal-Arroyo, said in a press conference Monday.
“A landslide victory of Noynoy Aquino probably offers the best prospect for the Philippine economy,” he added.
LP bares NP’s plan to disqualify Aquino using fake psych report
MANILA, Philippines – The Nacionalista Party (NP) of Senator Manny Villar has allegedly planned to use the fake psychiatric report on Senator Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III to file a disqualification case against him, Aquino’s camp revealed on Monday.
“We got from a very reliable source within NP, who said that the release of the fake psychiatric records would be used to file a disqualification case against Senator Noynoy Aquino,” Liberal Party (LP) senatorial candidate and Akbayan Representative Risa Hontiveros said in a statement.
“The mental health issue did not gain traction, so they now want to use the documents to file a disqualification case. Desperate men resort to desperate and foolish measures,” she said.
