Sen. Jose “Jinggoy’ Estrada

Sen. Jose “Jinggoy’ Estrada is according to speculations, eyeing the top post in Manila, but a source who is also a potential rival said the plunder complaint filed at the Office of the Ombudsman could work against the senator.

The source, who has been monitoring the political situation in Manila, said the pork scam could hurt Estrada’s chances of winning.

“Word is going around that Jinggoy will replace his father. If a plunder case is filed by the Ombudsman [before the Sandiganbayan], Jinggoy might not run. Erap will continue,” he said, referring to former President Joseph Estrada, the incumbent mayor.

The younger Estrada was accused of receiving commissions from projects funded by his Priority Development Assistance Fund.


Former president Estrada, now 76, plans to retire from politics in 2016.
The source said aside from the plunder complaint, the senator also faces a tight mayoral race in 2016.

Manila Vice Mayor Francisco Domagoso, popularly known as Isko Moreno, is certain to run for mayor, after being a councilor for three terms and a vice mayor for three terms.

“The natural progression is for Isko to run for mayor. Also, let us not count former Manila Mayor Fred Lim out as standard bearer of Liberal Party in Manila for 2016,” the source, who was born and raised in Manila, pointed out.

    Are the Manila electorate or voters too naive and gullible to elect another Estrada?.The cycle of corruptions keep going on because majority of the voters perpetuate it.

    Pinoys never learned their lessons. Pinoys are always ingrained with blame culture. After the people power in 1986, everyone believed that the Phils was finally freed from greedy political dynasty. But nil has changed. Who is to blame? Everyone is to blame. The poor man sells his vote to the inutile leech politico. There is no longer patriotism in the Phils. Just look at all the scams happening in all of the govt offices in the country. I admire the Estradas/binays/Marcoses/singsons and all the powerful politicos in power. They won because they knew how to sell themselves. They are cheap merchandise yet they are being patronised because of how they are advertised. And look at their patrons, rich and poor alike. Let us not blame the empoverished poor Pinoys

  3. PA- pasok na naman dito sa Manila? Sige lang,naghihintay ang Pasig River boat exit – a rerun of the bahag-buntot na pag exit ninyo via Pasig river boat service – out of Malacanang, ala 2001!!!

    The so called “poor electorates” in Manila should know by now the disaster they are in in electing Erap. I they do not learn their lesson, it is sad for the sane and the level headed Manilenos. They should also realize the kind of stuff that make their vice mayor , sip-sip to the bones. He is like a lapdog calling Erap “President Mayor”. What a stupid stunt. Isko will always be a mediocre.

  5. Who will win depends on those who cast their votes. I hope they will think of their future before casting their votes. A lot of people just go and cast their votes for someone and the next day, they are already complaining. So..THINK..THINK..THINK..

  6. Hep, hep…Hoooray! Sa Pasig River na naman tayo e -exit niyan! Baka gusto na naman nang rerun ng 2001 scenario na kung saan makikita ninyo ang mga Estrada’s pasakay nang Bangka sa ilog Pasig at pa exit na pala sila ng Malakanyang….

  7. Jinggoy lives in San Juan or elsewhere…and is building a mansion in Makati…Like his Dad, he used to be mayor of San Juan…He’ll probably buy a house somewhere in Manila…stay there part time in order to qualify. What a convenient way to do it. Not illegal but abominable and disgraceful. I hope he gets convicted and gets the 20 year max in prison.

  8. Dapat ang Manila ay para sa mga Manilenyo mas may malasakit sila kaysa mga dayo lamang dito sa aming bayan ng hawakan ng dayo , nagpayaman lamang at cada Pasko ay wala sa amin at doon nagcecelebrate sa bayan niya, sa madalling sabi walang malasakit siempre hindi naman siya tago doon kaya ganyan din ang malamang na mangyari sa Maynila kung taga San Juan ang uupo diyan.

  9. Papaano na si ISKO? Maiwan ka na lang ba ni Erap na maging IKMO na dinudura at tinatapakan? ISIP-ISIP MANILENEO, NASA INYONG KAMAY ANG INYONG KABUBUTI O KASASAMA AT, SA AKIN LANG, HUWAG PALOLOKONG MULI SA TAGA SAN JUAN AT MANDALUYONG NA POLITIKO, DI BA MGA KATOTO?

  10. A thieve ‘is always a thieve no matter how he will mask nothing can be change. His si corrupt more than his father. Better for Erap because he vacated his post and wield power. But for Jinggoy I doubt.

  11. The Estrada’s/Ejercito’s is a classic Political Dynasty. After taking San Juan for their own family’s (including the extension) governance, they will now take Manila for good measure! How Manilan’s would want the situation into happening is a mystery.

    We can count who among Erap’s family and relatives are into politics. San Juan is now currently led by the mother of JV, who is the half brother of Jinggoy, who is the son of Erap, and together with the Governor of Laguna, that already makes five!

    Sila sila na lang ba talaga?
