Aquino’s camp moves for his early proclamation

Posted by akosistella on June 4, 2010


MANILA, Philippines—The camp of Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino on Thursday moved for his early proclamation after getting more than five million votes lead over his closest rival, former president Joseph Estrada, in the ongoing canvassing of Congress.

Aquino’s laywer, Joel Cadiz, made the motion, saying that Aquino’s rival could no longer catch up since there were only less than two million votes left to be counted by Congress acting as the board of canvassers for president and vice president.

But Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri requested Aquino’s camp to be a little more patient since there were only a few certificates of canvass (CoC’s) to be processed.
Aquino’s camp acceded to Zubiri’s request.

Noynoy, Binay still dominate Congress canvassing

As the official canvassing of votes for president and vice president nears conclusion, Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay continued to hold a tight grip on the top slots.

Out of the 278 certificates of canvass (COCs), 236 had already been opened by the Congress, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers, as of 6 p.m. Thursday.

Aquino and Binay ruled in most provinces and cities canvassed for the day such as Batangas, Quezon City, Sulu, Muntinlupa, Pasay City, Makati City, Malabon City, Pampanga, San Juan, and Maguindanao.

    Bakit ba nagmamadali ang Aquino Camp na maproklama na si Noynoy? Ilang araw na lang naman at June 30 na at hindi maliwanag sa lahat ang resulta ng canvassing. Meron ba silang kinatatakutan na maaring mapunta sa presidential ang investigation? Halata naman na misteryoso ang mga boto sa tatlong ito (Aquino, Binay, Roxas). Kung may alinlangan kasi sa vice-presidential na may dayaan, siguradong meron din sa presidnetial. Mabuti pa imbestigahan din ang boto ni Aquino. Duda ako dyan. Paanong masasabi na may dayaan sa boto ng vice president na wala ang sa president. kataka-taka.

    If I were Kris I would not gloat too much about Noynoy’s win. His apparent victory is not the people’s mandate. Just be happy that these crooks want NOynoy there by hook or by crook. Everybody knows, Kris knows, Noynoy knows, that there was MASSIVE CHEATING during the May 10 elections. DID YOU EVER WONDER WHY THE CF CARDS, PCOS MACHINES SUDDENLY GOT MESSED UP A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION? The Aquino camp was the mastermind of this election fraud. The ultimate goal was to put NOY-BI as winners. Mar is definitely the winner for the Vice-Presidential race but the Aquino camp including the SISTERS AND COJUANGCO CLAN do not want Mar. Big struggle ahead for Mar to claim the votes that are righfully his. What’s the rush to advance Noynoy’s proclamation? Are they afraid that an investigation might surface?
