As Roxas awaits Visayas votes, Binay keeps lead

Posted by akosistella on May 15, 2010


As of the 5:31 p.m. update from the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting PPCRV, the citizen’s arm of the Commission on Elections based at the Pope Pius Center in Manila, Roxas was still nailed to the second spot with 12,670,877 votes.

Binay has so far garnered 13,478,375 votes, widening his lead to 804,669 votes from Thursday night’s 793,358 vote-margin.

Out of the 76,475 polling precincts across the country, 68,871 have already transmitted election returns to the Pius server, a small jump from early Thursday’s 68,373 precincts.

But votes from Central Visayas, much awaited by the camp of Roxas, the running mate of almost-elected president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, still remained uncounted as of 1:03 p.m. Friday.

Roxas’ camp has claimed that the senator will win by a “hairline” against Binay once votes from Central Visayas, his bailiwick, were counted.

Alleged fertilizer scam point man loses gubernatorial bid in Capiz

Posted by akosistella on May 14, 2010


CEBU CITY — It’s official: Capiz reelectionist Gov. Victor Tanco (Liberal Party) has won his reelection bid against the controversial former agriculture undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante, the alleged architect of the fertilizer scam.

Bolante lost not only the gubernatorial post but a chance to gain political vindication from the public drubbing that he got when he was made to face a Senate inquiry on the fertilizer scam. The Senate hearings had recommended charges to be filed against him and several government officials.

Likely president-elect, Sen. Benigno Aquino III and Sen. Mar Roxas, a native of Capiz and Aquino’s running mate under the Liberal Party, personally campaigned in the province against the election bid of Bolante.

Phil Star: Eleventh-hour ouster

On the eve of the end of the campaign period, Ed Panlilio received the final word from the Commission on Elections: for the past three years, he had occupied a post that he did not win in the 2007 midterm elections. The real winner in the race for Pampanga governor, according to the final Comelec ruling, is former provincial board member Lilia Pineda.

Inquirer: Days of unease

COMELEC CHAIR JOSE MELO SAYS HE CAN SMILE again. “Elections will go through at all levels, in all precincts,” he happily declared Wednesday after a test run on a precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machine in one Makati precinct yielded a “perfect” result. The same machine was one among scores of machines that failed to read votes cast for local positions in an earlier test conducted Monday, forcing the Comelec to call off the nationwide testing of some 76,000 PCOS machines and recall all the flash cards where the instructions are encoded. The accurate reading of the test votes came after a reconfigured flash card was used. And a visibly relieved Melo gratefully said, “It seems that our prayers have been answered.”

Risa’s generation

RISA HONTIVEROS-BARAQUEL IS RUNNING for senator. The latest surveys show her to be hovering between 13th and 15th place—still outside the winning circle of 12, which includes the likes of Bongbong Marcos and Lito Lapid. But, clearly, she is very much within striking distance, almost by a miracle, having come from way behind—from the ranks of deserving candidates who languish in the bottom of survey rankings only because their names do not ring a bell.

ROSES & THORNS By Alejandro R. Roces

It is an old saying that politics and not cockfighting is the true national past time of the Filipinos. May is a month of fiestas in the Philippines. We have the Flores de Mayo, Obando Fertility Rites, Pahiyas and Pulilan Carabao Festival. Fiestas are the highest form of community expression. We have referred to EDSA I as the fiesta that toppled a dictator. In a way, Election Day is another political fiesta. Voting is one of the highest expressions of our civic responsibility.

‘Science means never having to say you’re wrong’
SOCIAL CLIMATE By Mahar Mangahas

“LOVE MEANS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU’RE sorry” is a cute saying. There must be as many definitions of love as there are lovers.

On the other hand, “Science means never having to say you’re wrong,” which seems to be what it means to presidential candidate Richard “Dick” Gordon, is not what science means to me, nor, I think, to most scientists.

Leaks for mind-conditioning
FRONTLINE By Ninez Cacho-Olivares

If there was any doubt that the Social Weather Stations (SWS) was into mind-conditioning, and perhaps even manipulating the results of a presidential candidate that it is supporting, doubt no more.

There can hardly be any doubt left today — not after the still dubious survey results that were supposed to be embargoed for a newspaper, the BusinessWorld, to print for Friday’s issue, were deliberately leaked to the Liberal Party standard bearer, Sen. Noynoy Aquino, in time for the other media establishments to quickly carry the results, showing the LP bet widening his lead, with a 42 percent survey score.

COMMENTARY By Juan Miguel Luz

Next to poor reading skills, low levels of science and math achievement hurt a country most. Functional literacy is the combination of reading (the basis for simple literacy) and numeracy (the facility to do the four operations of arithmetic: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division).

At a higher level, it is the reason why we are unable to develop and maintain a significant industrial base in this country. There are simply not enough science and technology technicians, professionals and scientists to run a broad-based manufacturing or industrial sector that can produce products for local consumption and export.

Aquino stands by Roxas, slams Binay ‘illusions’

Posted by akosistella on May 6, 2010


MANILA, Philippines—Going into the final days of the campaign, Liberal Party standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III is going out of his way to convince voters that his running mate is Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and not Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay of Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino.A week after the launch of the “Noy-Bi” ticket endorsed by Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero and Ang Ladlad party-list, Aquino reiterated his support for Roxas after Binay claimed that he was offered by Aquino to head the Department of Interior and Local Government should he win the elections.“From day one, my only vice president is Mar. That will not change and nothing will change that fact,” Aquino said in a press statement.

Cardinal Rosales clarifies stand on people power

After receiving flak on the matter, Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales blinked and clarified he is not against the use of people power if the elections are thwarted.

At the same time, Rosales said he did not mean to hurt anyone when he branded calls for people power at this time as “crazy,” and that he should have reflected on the matter.

“He was not against People Power, by itself, against dictators and injustices, for which he prayed much during the first EDSA 1986. The interview words he used should have been well reflected on, words he (lately and now) admittedly did not mean (much less to hurt the sensibilities of others),” a statement from Rosales’ office said.

Comelec sustains decision unseating Panlilio as governor

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) en banc has upheld the decision unseating Pampanga Governor Ed Panlilio in favor of former board member Lilia Pineda, a poll body official said Thursday.

Comelec Commissioner Lucenito Tagle confirmed that the en banc, in a split decision, upheld the decision of the second division saying Pineda actually won in the 2007 Pampanga gubernatorial race.

“Ang alam ko na-uphold din, di ko alam kung na-promulgate (From what I know, it was upheld, I don’t know if it has been promulgated),” he said in a phone interview with GMANews.TV. Tagle is a member of the second division.

Gordon: Aquino paid for polls; Teodoro: I was never asked

MANILA, Philippines—After taking survey firms to court, Bagumbayan presidential candidate Richard Gordon, who has been faring poorly in opinion polls, is now venting his ire on front-runner Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Following the release of a new Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showing Aquino keeping his huge lead over his rivals, Gordon accused the Liberal Party standard-bearer of paying off polling groups to maintain the top spot.

“Of course he’s ahead. Of course, [because] he paid. That’s a no-brainer that only Noynoy can give,” Gordon said Monday night when asked about Aquino’s statement about survey groups.

Hontiveros criticizes radical leftists in NP camp

MANILA, Philippines – Liberal Party senatorial candidate Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel on Wednesday took to task members of the radical Left who have joined the camp of Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manny Villar.

A proud member of what she called the “democratic Left”, Hontiveros Baraquel said she does not understand how known leftists such as Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo and Gabriela partylist Rep. Liza Maza could join the NP Senate ticket.

“They [Maza and Ocampo] have too easily swallowed the transactional politics that marks the Villar camp,” she told ANC’s “Headstart.”

Sanchez wife can’t run on behalf of late husband — Comelec

After death of former Batangas governor Armando Sanchez, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said on Wednesday that the candidate’s wife, Sto. Tomas Mayor Edna Sanchez, will probably not be allowed to replace him.

In an interview with reporters, Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said a person can only become a substitute for the Nacionalista Party (NP) bet if he or she is comes from the same party and is not running for any other position in the May polls.

“Whoever is fit to substitute for them can run on behalf of him (but)… you cannot change positions anymore, this will leave a vacancy. The substitute should (also) come from the same party or coalition,” Jimenez said.

I was cleared of cheating – Agra

MANILA, Philippines – Acting Justice Secretary Alberto Agra denied Tuesday a report of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) that he admitted to cheating in an examination when he was studying at the Ateneo de Manila Law School.

In his reply to the report, Agra admitted he flunked that Wills and Succession class under lawyer Avelino Sebastian in 1988, which delayed his graduation by one year, but he never cheated in any exam.

“What I actually admitted to was that I had been charged, albeit maliciously, with cheating by my professor attorney Avelino Sebastian. The disciplinary committee created to investigate the charge exonerated me together with my other classmates,” he explained.

Arroyo sings in her first sortie for congressional seat

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Philippines — In her first sortie since the campaign period for local positions started on March 26, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo sang Florantes “Handog” on Saturday.

Gubernatorial candidate Lilia Pineda, a friend of the President’s, joined her in singing the familiar Pinoy tune about gratitude at a gymnasium in Lubao, hometown of her late father, former President Diosdado Macapagal.

Lakas-Kampi-CMD campaign coordinators said the rallys host, Rosve Henson, put Ms Arroyo on the spot during the program. The President took a dare and embraced Pineda as they sang before some 3, 000 people.

Another mammoth crowd leaves Estrada speechless

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Philippines — Former President Joseph Estrada was uncharacteristically speechless when he walked up the makeshift stage at the huge intersection-turned-rally site here late Saturday night.

For a few minutes, all he could do was look at the mammoth crowd and stare in disbelief how he—at 73 years old and almost a decade detached from his abbreviated presidency—could still gather such a big number at such short notice.

He said the number could go no lower than 50, 000, which was his biggest crowd to date and definitely no small feat for a campaign ticket lacking the star power of top endorsers such as Manny Pacquiao and Willie Revillame.

“Let’s wake the others who are giving more importance to surveys and ignoring the voice of the people. For me until the last Juan dela Cruz speaks, it isn’t over. Juan dela Cruz’s vote is sacred,” he told a cheering crowd of 2,000.

MANILA, Philippines – Why hold an automated election for the country’s highest office if there is a large possibility that it will fail?

“Instead of waiting for failure to happen on election day, we have to preempt it. We have to be active,” Perlas told radio dzMM.

SC junks Aquino petition vs new CamSur district

Posted by akosistella on April 6, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court has affirmed the creation of a new district in Camarines Sur, dismissing a petition by Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to declare the law behind its formation as unconstitutional.

Voting 9-5-1, the high court, through Associate Justice Jose Perez said no grave abuse of discretion has been committed with the enactment of Republic Act 9716 or the law creating the third district in Camarines Sur.

The high court added that there was no violation of the principle of proportional representation.

Aquino, in his petition, said RA 9716 would favor Congressman Diosdado “Dato” Arroyo and Budget Secretary Rolando Andaya since a third district would prevent them from running against each other.

MANILA, Philippines—The Supreme Court ruled that Joselito Mendoza stays as Bulacan governor after it denied with finality the appeal filed by Roberto Pagdanganan.

In its resolution, the high court said Pagdanganan failed to raise new issues that would warrant a reversal of its earlier decision.

On March 23, the High Court, through Associate Justice Jose Perez said the Commission on Elections (Comelec) En Banc committed grave abuse of discretion when it declared Roberto Pagdanangan as winner in the 2007 gubernatorial race.

“There is grave abuse of discretion on the part of the Comelec en banc,” spokesmna Midas Marquez said.

Cracks seen in Solid North: Marcos vs Marcos

Posted by akosistella on March 31, 2010

(via ABS-CBN News)

WHOEVER wins there, it will still be a Marcos. After all that’s been said and done, they will be a family again. Who knows all this is just a moro-moro cleverly hatched by the family to make sure they have all their bases covered, whoever wins the presidential elections. Creepy. Parang Addams family.

Btw, congratulations to Bongbong Marcos, senatorial bet of the Nacionalista Party, who we hear has just upgraded from a Toyota Cefiro to a new Prius. Known as an environmental-friendly vehicle, the Prius is the favorite of Hollywood celebrities like Leonardo di Caprio.

We’re pretty sure Toyota Motor Phils. vice chair Alfred Ty will be happy to hear of Mr. Marcos’s new purchase, as the company had admitted to some difficulty in trying to reach its 100-cars target in 2009. At a cost of P2.25 million, it costs about as much as a Camry, Toyota’s mid-sized sedan. Hopefully, Mr. Marcos tells his driver to park the Prius in actual parking areas, instead of occupying no-parking spaces like they would do w/ the Cefiro. Don’t you just hate VIPs having their cars and drivers hanging about, waiting for them with the motors and airconditioning running, and in no-parking areas no less? That’s so uncool.

Supreme Court says Joselito Mendoza is still Bulacan governor

Posted by akosistella on March 23, 2010

At a press conference, Supreme Court spokesman Midas Marquez said nine magistrates voted in favor of Mendoza's petition, four dissented, while two abstained.

The court said there was “grave abuse of discretion on the part of the Commission on Elections” when it ordered Mendoza to leave the provincial capitol in early March.

But Marquez said Pagdanganan's camp could still file a motion for reconsideration, adding that the court had to release the order because the deadline for the ante order ends today (Tuesday).

Aquino also noted that when Imee was one of his colleagues at the House of Representatives, she helped him implement a hybrid rice program for his constituents.

Pacquiao faces tough fight vs Chiongbians

Remulla: It won’t be a stroll in the park

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) — World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will have a tough political battle when he faces the well-entrenched political clan of the Chiongbians for the lone congressional seat in Sarangani province.

In an interview on ANC’s Rundown Monday night, Edwin Espejo, 50, a veteran journalist from General Santos (GenSan) City, said Pacquiao’s battle against the Chiongbians may be similar to his lost battle against the Antonino clan in South Cotabato in 2007.

“Unfortunately for Manny, the same situation confronts him now. The Chiongbians have been in local politics even longer than the Antoninos. It was the Chiongbians who authored the bill that created GenSan and also authored the bill that created Sarangani,” Espejo said.
