LOWDOWN By Jojo Robles

Since it now appears that the Yellow faction is going to handily beat the politicians’ camp in the in-house battle for access to and control of the presidency, it’s good to know who the movers and shakers in this ascendant sub-group in N/A’s organization are. At the very least, the following information will help those people who are right now desperately trying to find out who to send their resumes to, in the hopes of snagging some of the spoils that the incoming administration will be handing out.

The Sisters—all of them, yes, Kris included—belong to the most exclusive inner circle of N/A’s camp. These women, to whom Cory entrusted the care, feeding and even the clothing of N/A, will hold the most power next to the incoming president himself, when it comes to matters of policy, appointments and most of the other day-to-day stuff that require N/A’s attention.

The Sisters were the first to start campaigning to junk Roxas by quietly asking financial backers and local supporters of N/A to start considering a “Noy-Bi” tandem behind Roxas’ back. The Designated Girlfriend, Valenzuela’s Shalani Soledad, may soon join this club, if she passes muster and improves her standing to First Lady during N/A’s term.

Infighting in Aquino camp goes public

THE infighting in the camp of president-elect Benigno Aquino III went public Monday, after a leader of his volunteers group accused Liberal Party politicians and the Hyatt 10 of hijacking reform.

“From the start, the rift was between the reformist volunteer groups and the trapo political party,” said Conrado de Quiros, a columnist of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and a member of the Volunteers for Noynoy [Aquino] Movement’s executive committee.

On one side of the rift are the supporters of Aquino’s vice presidential running mate, Manuel Roxas II; the so-called Hyatt 10, composed of former Cabinet members who broke with President Gloria Arroyo; Liberal Party officials led by campaign manager Florencio Abad; and former Arroyo Defense Secretary Avelino Cruz.

Interesting points raised in both these pieces. I’m surprised though that a distinguished columnist like Mr. De Quiros allows himself to be involved in these issues. Affected, kasi totoo ang mga bintang?

MANILA, Philippines—No secret has remained untold and the truth will out.

This was what Liberal Party vice presidential candidate Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II said Thursday when asked about reports that some major supporters of LP standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III had junked him (Roxas).

Roxas appeared before TV cameras Thursday for the first time since Monday’s election during the celebration of his 53rd birthday with supporters and family at the Balai Aquino-Roxas in Cubao, Quezon City.

Inside story: Hyatt 10 vs Kamag-anak Inc.


MANILA, Philippines—The fight between the “Noy-Mar” and “Noy-Bi” advocates has been traced to the rivalry between the Hyatt 10 and groups identified with the so-called Kamag-anak Inc. of ex-Tarlac Rep. Jose Cojuangco, the Philippine Daily Inquirer has learned from sources in the camp of presidential front-runner Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

The “Noy-Bi” tandem of Aquino for president and Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay for vice president was purportedly fielded to derail the “Noy-Mar” tandem of Aquino and Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, which was seen as “not good” for Cojuangco and his allies, the sources said.

Pastor “Boy” Saycon, who is Cojuangco’s colleague in the Council for Philippine Affairs (Copa), which was pushing for the “Noy-Bi” tandem, denied Cojuangco’s involvement. “Peping is out of this,” Saycon said.
