Manila, PHILIPPINES – The wife of the late Boston psychiatrist Steve Agular denied that her husband ever treated Liberal Party presidential bet Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
In a short statement, Dr. Rosario Agular said there is “absolutely no truth” to the claim that Aquino consulted her husband.
“Aquino was not even a patient of my husband. I condemn the use of my late husband’s name in these attempts to smear the reputation of Aquino,” Agular said in her statement.
Group: Why force bets to undergo psych test?
MANILA, Philippines – A nationwide group of professional psychologists on Sunday denounced calls to force presidential candidates to undergo psychological testing.
In a statement, the Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP) denounced the use of fake psychological reports as a tool for black propaganda in the 2010 presidential election. The PAP said the release of the fake psychiatric reports and inaccurate statements about different aspects of the practice of psychology “have dangerous long-term effects on efforts of Filipino psychologists and other mental-health professionals to address the psychological well-being of Filipinos.”
The group also denounced calls made by politicians and media practitioners to force political candidates to take psychological tests or assessment.

‘Take the money, vote your conscience’ – Korina
MANILA, Philippines – Veteran broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez-Roxas on Saturday said voters who are offered money by politicians in exchange for their votes should take the cash but vote based on their conscience.
“Tanggapin ang pera, pero iboto ang nasa konsensiya,” she said during a Labor Day rally for the group Workers for Aquino-Roxas at the Ninoy Aquino monument on Timog Avenue.
Sanchez-Roxas said voters should be discerning on who to vote for in the coming May 10 polls and should only back candidates who are not tainted by corruption. She urged voters to vote for her husband, Liberal Party vice-presidential bet Mar Roxas, and LP standard-bearer Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
