MANILA, Philippines – The jockeying for Cabinet posts in the next administration has started.

Florencio “Butch” Abad, the Liberal Party’s (LP) campaign manager, told ABS-CBN News on Sunday that he has received over a hundred text messages and emails from people asking they be considered for Cabinet positions in the Aquino administration.

Though LP standard-bearer Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino has not yet been proclaimed as the next president, he is ahead of his rival, former president Joseph Estrada, in the partial vote count.

No political honeymoon period with Aquino—Left

LUCENA CITY, Quezon, Philippines—Leftist groups would not observe the traditional honeymoon period with apparent president-elect Senator Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III. Instead, they vowed that the incoming administration will be met with a stream of demands and protests.

This was the statement of the militant fisher folk alliance Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) issued Sunday.

“There’s no honeymoon. The total political exposition of and opposition to Aquino and the newly installed ruling Mafia in Malacanang is the top order of the day,” said Pamalakaya national chair Fernando Hicap said.
