• Marcos, Poe camps deny ‘tactical alliance’


    The camps of Senators Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Grace Poe on Monday denied reports that they have inked a “tactical alliance.”

    “I don’t think there is such a thing. Besides, what shall we gain with that alliance?” said an official from Marcos’ campaign headquarters in Mandaluyong City (Metro Manila).

    “I don’t think this is true. They are just trying to create a rift within our camp,” Sen Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Poe’s running mate, said.

    Citing statements from reliable sources, The Manila Times reported that Poe and Marcos forged an alliance through Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, eldest sister of Bongbong.

    The source claimed that the alliance was sealed early in March, several weeks after Poe visited Batac, Ilocos Norte.

    Escudero said attempts to destroy his good relations with Poe will not succeed.

    “Grace and I have known each other the longest and have been through the most together,” he noted.

    Poe’s spokesman, Valenzuela City (Metro Manila) Mayor Rex Gatchalian also dismissed the report.

    “The relationship of Sen. Poe and Sen. Chiz remains strong and steadfast. They will finish [the May 2016 elections]shoulder-to-shoulder, side-by-side,” Gatchalian said.

    “Those behind this intrigue are out to create a rift between the two senators, but they will not succeed,” he added.

      Grace Poe and the rest of the VP candidates canreturn to be Senadors if they are defeated, unlike Bongbong Marcos whose term expires on election date.

      ” Patay si Chiz nakarma, ginawa mo yan noon kay Mar Roxas nag-Binay ka, kaya ngayon resback sa yo ito Chiz.” You deserve it Chiz, the leech.heheheheh!!!!!

      Wala yan, the alliance will be between Mar-BBM, these two will win in 2016 in a fair election contest sans any PCOS machine, its the vaunted Solid North to Visayas, and part of Mindanao votes that will solidify the win…and Mar-BBM wont be zero either in NCR and Southern Tagalog. Do not forget whom Imeldific trust more and hate the most. Remember who is the puppet master of Grace Poe Llamanzares, that is enough to send nightmares on Imeldific.

      However, when PNoy get the PCOS machine moving, it is more likely Mar- Leni. PNoy will not allow votes for BBM be counted in the PCOS machine.
