• Escudero ‘ignorant’


    LIBERAL Party (LP) presidential candidate Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd has slammed Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero for his “ignorance” about the province of Capiz.

    Roxas was reacting to Escudero’s statements made while campaigning in Roxas’ hometown of Capiz on Wednesday that Roxas has not done enough to steer Capiz to progress.

    “What can you expect from somebody like Chiz na saling pusa [who dips his hands in everything]? He just wants to include his name in the national conversation,” the LP standard-bearer said in a chance interview.

    Roxas then dared Escudero to name the things he did for the benefit of his home province of Sorsogon.

    “We should also ask him what happened to Sorsogon. What I know is that Capiz, which used to be a poor area with no water, electricity and business investments, is now a progressive province with lots of Jollibee branches and malls,” he said.

    “Capiz has been developing well, and the people there can attest to that. There are jobs and the families can spend for their food and other basic needs,” Roxas added.

    1. This Mar Roxas is like a dictator sa Roxas city. His family owns the Jollibee that’s why McDonald is not allowed to open in Capiz. Even Coca Cola is not allowed at Robinson Mall which is his family is part owner only Pepsi product are sold. Walang kuentang tao yan si Mar Roxas. Ang mga Roxas na taohan lang ang yumayan sa aming bayan.

    2. Maka sagot si mar akala mo ang dami
      niyang nagawa e. HAHA. Ay oo nga pala madami nga. Sobrang dami.. Naging
      traffic enforcer, naging driber ng pedicab, naging karpintero, naging
      dishwasher, naging cargador sa palengke… Dami, kaya uunlad talaga
      pilipinas niyan

    3. Ha..ha..ha, pareho lang itong dalawang ito sa Capiz maraming pulubi sa Sorsogon maraming NPA ano ang nagawa ninyo para umasenso mga kasimanua ninyo, Basta pala may Jolibee at mall asensado na ang isang lugar. Ang babaw naman.

    4. Dapat sa dalawang ito’y pagumpugin ang mga ulo. Puro walang silbi sa masa. Magaling sila sa daldalan para lang sa kanilang sariling maluhong pamumuhay.

      • I think this is pure politicking. Mar should know well about his province economy than most aspirants being a home grown politician. I would do the same to my province and so are all the candidates. For Chiz to say walang nagawa is completely misrepresentation and utterly lie. Liars go to hell if he does not know that yet. If Chiz was not able to maintained his family how much more to the Filipino people. He is an opportunistic animal.
