29

Liberal Party (LP) vice presidential candidate Rep. Leni Robredo lashed out at Sen. Francis Escudero on Saturday over the latter’s statement that President Benigno Aquino 3rd should not have endorsed candidates in the 2016 polls to ensure credible conduct of polls.

Robredo noted that Escudero did not complain when the president drafted him to be part of the administration’s Senate slate in 2013 where he won a six-year mandate.

“Hindi siya nagreklamo noon pero bakit ngayon nagrereklamo siya? [He did not complain then, why is he ranting now]? As our leader, it is President Aquino’s duty to choose the best bets who will continue his reforms,” Robredo said.

Aquino has been actively campaigning for Robredo and Liberal Party presidential bet Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd. He joined Roxas and Robredo when they campaigned in the provinces of Laguna and Cavite last week.

Robredo said Aquino has endorsed and campaigned for them because it is part of his duty as Chief Executive to ensure that the programs that he implemented will be continued. Also, Aquino is tHe chairman of the LP.

“The President knows that it is very important that the gains that his administration achieved should be continued. It is his duty to support the candidates whom he believes in. Why would he relent at this point?” Robredo said.

      Zombies? And what about bbm ites? Vampires who suck the blood to live and who cannot face the light of day because it will show everyone what they are. They hide themselves until darkness afraid that the morning sun will turn them to dust.

    Leni Robredo is heaven sent…she is sober but gracious; self-sacrificing and compassionate yet cheerful. She inspires the Filipino people to live the virtues which are essential to maximize the benefits of democracy that of having a government which is really of the people, by the people, for the people. Ipagpatuloy nation any Daang Matuwid!

    si Escudero? Itsura palang di na mapagmkakatiwalaan itanong nyo pa sa mga magulang ng pangalawa nyang asawa..

  4. Puro sakay sa issue lang nman c leni. Wala syang kakayahan maging VP at mas marami paring tao ang pumapanig sa ganong paniniwala. Sinira lang nya imahe ng asawa nya. Kala nya kse lalakas sya s ratings kung makiki sawsaw sya s issues n binabato s mga kalaban nya. It is very obvious, bakit ngayon lang nya sinasabi ang mga ito? Yang ang example ng TRAPO. Good Day! :)

  5. Kung maka content kayo wagas.akala nyo may alam kayo. Bakit magkasama ba kayo ni MARIMAR AT LENINGGO ARAW ARAW para aanihin mo na malinis sila?.lol. figure lng cla na kunwari malinis. Kasi Hindi sila hands on sa pagnanakaw. Mga appointed nila ang nagkakamkam.hahaha.

    dati namang ginagawa yang endorsement na yan. bakit natatakot ba si Chiz? kahit endorsed pa ang isang kandidato nang esang dosenang angel di mananalo yan kung masama ang track records. kaso malinis ang track records ni roxas at ni leni. paano yan ngayon.

    • kaya di sila tumigil kapanira nila ka mar at leni. wala silang nagawa na malinis katumbas ng dalawa nating candidate.

    • I used to respect this guy in the Senate. Now I am just so disappointed with him I can no longer stand seeing him on television. Every time I see him wearing that idiotic smile in ALL his appearances, I can’t help hearing the translation in my head: “Look at this smile, people, this smile you adore and which will make you vote for me!” Eh?!

  8. Naniniwala ako sa kapangyarihan ng taimtim na dasal… alam ng Diyos ang hinaing ng tunay na may malasakit para sa bansa, at ang may mapagpakumbabang pag-uugali… ipagpatuloy lang nating ipagdasal ang ating hinirang na liders (RORO) hanggang mapagtagumpayan nila ang mithiing maitaguyod ang kapwa mga Pilipino at ang ating mahal na bayan.

    • meron daw P500M tinanggap si Leni…sana wala para talagang honest katulad ng sinasabi ng iba dito! hwag sabihin for campaign fund…kasi may kapalit yan…sayang sya…

  10. lorenzo legisniana on

    • oskar Atendido on

      Chiz is balimbing all the way and immature. The guy with memorized lines to deliver. Leni is honest and simple . Si Leni ang tunay na pang vice president.

    Ang mga hunghang mga nag-aaway na dahil sa puwesto sa gobyerno…mga halata sa mga kapangyarihan, mga ganid sa puwesto, mga garapal! Nakakahiya, magkakasama dati ng mag-eelksiyon, mga nagkakagatan! Mga makapal ang mga mukha, di na tinatablan. Mga mapangarap, mga halimaw sa kapangyarihan…kahiya hiyang bansang Pilipinas! Grabe na talaga ang mga hunghang, hayok! Nag-umpisa sa Presidente, mga cabinet members, sa lahat halos ng sangay ng administration ng mga communists! Magsama sama kayo, kasama na si Grace Poe, na dreamer na makasarili! Mga hypocrite! Kawawang bansa! Kaawa-awa!

      Ipagdasal na lang natin kung wala ka nang magagawa. Sa ngayon, may pwersa tayong magamit, ang paghahalal sa tamang lider na magtataguyod ang pag-unlad ng ating bansa. Karapatan natin ang pumili ngunit obligasyon nating bumoto. Yan ang ating magagawa sa Mayo 9 at hari nawa’y hindi ma–postpone dahil sa pagyuyurak ng Korte Suprema sa COMELEC. Pansamantala, magmasid tayo at magbasa para di tayo alipustahin ng mga may konting alam. Knowledge is power, ika nga, Abning na Abnoy pa. Salamat.

    • It has been a political tradition in the Philippines that the incumbent used to endorse his successor along with his official line ups, so what this Escudero is complaining about when he was benefited of it when he run as
      senator. He is only confirming his brand as “boy laglag”

    • pakipaliwanag mo nga kung ano talaga ang ibig sabihin ng communist,kasi base sa pagsusulat mo parang Marcos ang dating mo pag di sumangayon sa gusto mo tatawagin mong isang comunista, ganyan yung mga nauto ni Marcos nung araw at pati na ngayon pagdi sumanayon sa kanya sasabihin kasama nitong mga siraulo at bandidong NPA…
