MANILA, Philippines — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is hoping that the campaigns that she and presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. will launch will yield them success.

Mayor Sara made the statement following her acceptance of the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) chairmanship.

The young Duterte is confident that the public will support the BBM-Sara tandem in the 2022 national and local elections.

On Wednesday (November 17), Lakas-CMD and the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas have formalized their alliance, sealing the BBM-Sara team-up.

“Together with the party, I look forward to waging a successful campaign for Uniteam BBM-Sara, with the invaluable support of our fellow Filipinos,” Mayor Sara said. —/mbmf

Disqualification case vs BBM tatalakayin sa Enero 7 – COMELEC

Robie de Guzman   •   December 29, 2021


MANILA, Philippines – Nakatakdang dinggin ng Commission on Elections (COMELEC) sa Enero 7, 2022 ang disqualification petition na inihain ng grupong Akbayan laban kay presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Ang disqualification case na inihain ng Akbayan noong Disyembre 2 ay isa lamang sa mga disqualification cases laban kay Marcos na layong patigilin ang dating senador mula sa paglahok sa presidential race para sa 2022 elections.

Giit ng petitioner, ang pagkaka-convict kay Marcos noong 1995 dahil sa umano’y paglabag sa National Internal Revenue Code ay sapat na dahilan upang huwag itong payagang tumakbo ito sa 2022 polls.

Ayon kay COMELEC Commissioner Rowena Guanzon, papayagan ang media coverage sa loob ng limang minuto o hanggang bago ang marking ng exhibits gagawing pagdinig para sa interes ng publiko.

Presidential bets send help to address potable water shortage in Odette-hit areas

MANILA, Philippines — Presidential aspirants Isko Moreno, Bongbong Marcos, Manny Pacquiao, and Leni Robredo individually sent assistance to areas severely hit by Typhoon Odette and addressed the problem of not having sufficient drinking water in these areas.

Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso on Monday said he sent a team from the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) to Cebu City to help in the clearing operations in the area and provide clean drinking water with the use of the water filtration machine that the team brought.

MDRRMO Director Arnel Angeles said water tankers went around the city to provide the needs of Cebu City residents for potable water.

Former Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, on the other hand, sent gallons of drinking water and filtration kits to the victims of Typhoon Odette.

Marcos noted the importance of filtration kits as residents in the typhoon-hit areas were left without a good source of clean drinking water.

He said this is the same problem that was seen and experienced by his team when they sent help to areas ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.

The BBM-Sara tandem promised to continue sending assistance to the areas that were hit by Odette.

Meanwhile, Senator Manny Pacquiao expressed concern over the effects of the shortage of drinking water on the health of the people in the typhoon-ravaged areas.

He said that he has been receiving reports that people in these areas were rendered helpless and just get drinking water from unsafe sources.

Pacquiao said that his team is scouting from suppliers of water filtration systems and portable toilets to be set up in evacuation centers.

Vice President Leni Robredo, in the meantime, said she will send 30 tons of drinking water to the provinces of Cebu and Bohol.

Robredo thanked her volunteers who helped and sent assistance to the typhoon victims. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)
