Vice President Leni Robredo’s trust ratings went down in the third quarter this year.

The survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) from September 15 to 23 shows that 59 percent of adult Filipinos have “much trust” in the vice president while 21 percent have “little trust” in her. Twenty percent are undecided.

This translates to a net trust rating of +38; a two-point decline from the +40 she received in June.  — UNTV News & Rescue

 

No frontrunner yet among presidential candidates — analyst

Maris Federez   •   October 21, 2021

MANILA, Philippines —No frontrunner has yet emerged among the 2022 presidential aspirants, according to political analyst Professor Ramon Casiple.

With the campaign season still yet to start, Casiple said no clear platform has been laid down so far by any of the candidates.

Casiple also noted that even Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte’s initial declaration not to join the presidential race still cannot be considered as a final decision of the local chief executive. Not until the deadline for the substitution of candidates which is on November 15.

“Alam mo naman sa pulitika wala namang usapang tapos,” he said.

Meanwhile, presidential aspirants have started going out of their way to visit places as a prelude to the election campaign period.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno went to Barangay Banaba in Tarlac City Thursday with his running mate Dr. Willie Ong and the senatorial slate of the Aksyon Demokratiko.

Moreno held a dialogue with a farmer group and presented to them his plans to use government lands nationwide for their benefit, as well as the fisherfolks, in case he wins the elections.

“Naisip ko hindi ako totosgas. Hindi na ako gagastos para bumili ng lupa. Ang gagastusan ko na lang magtatag ako ng cold storage facility para sa dalawang industriya. Gulay tinanong mo, isasabay ko na dito ang isda,” Moreno said.

Labor leader Leody de Guzman, meanwhile, will also focus on the agricultural sector.

He said that, although he doesn’t have the machinery in running his candidacy, he is still hoping for the support of the farmers come election day.

“Buong Pilipinas yan. Forty-five million yan. May 11 million na magsasaka at yan rin ang pangunahing paglilingkuran. Plano ko na buhusan ng pondo ang ating magsasaka at mangingisda para tiyakin yung food security o availablity ng pagkain,” de Guzman said.

Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban Cusi Wing) presidential bet Senator Ronald ‘Bato’ dela Rosa, on the other hand, said he will push for the amendment of the Constitution, particularly its economic provisions.

He said he will advocate for a more welcoming business climate in the country that will encourage foreign investments.

“Yung restrictive economic provisions sa ating Constitution ay dadagdagan natin ng phrase na ‘unless otherwise provided by law’ to give the Senate [Congress] a leeway to decide on yung pagpasok ng mga foreign investments dito, lalong-lalo na sa ownership ng mga lands,” Bato said.

For presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo, as reflected by the color pink, her leadership will be evident through her gentle manner of speaking, working, and reaching out to the people.

These, she said, must also be reflected in the way of life of every Filipino.

“Tayong lahat ang nagdadala nito. Kailangan nating isalamin ang tunay na ibig sabihin ng pink habang suot natin ito. Gumawa ng mabuti, magpaabot ng tulong sa kapwa, maging mahinahon sa pagbabahagi ng ating mensahe,” Robredo said. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)

Robredo on alleged failed unification: ‘I have not given up on unifying our people’

MANILA, Philippines — “If unity was not possible among the presidential contenders, I have not given up on unifying our people.”

These are the words of Vice President Leni Robredo on what is perceived to be an already impossible task of uniting the presidential candidates against the administration due to the seeming limitation set by the Robredo-initiated Unity Talks.

Robredo, however, said that she is not losing hope in unifying individuals from different groups, starting from the senatorial line-up under her ticket with Senator Francis Pangilinan who will run as her vice president.

Robredo-Pangilinan camp has yet to finalize its senatorial slate but the vice president assured that the lineup represents individuals from different parties.

She stressed that only three among them are from the Liberal Party, a staunch supporter of the vice president.

“When I decided to run for the vice (sic) presidency, it was my signal to move on already from all attempts to unify the personalities and the parties.”

“We are very hopeful that unity is still possible, maybe not among the presidential contenders but definitely among many different kinds of people from different political affiliations.”

Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson who is also a presidential aspirant, said that the Unity Talks does not really aim at achieving unity, following the meeting that he and his running mate Senate President Vicente Sotto III had with VP Robredo.

Lacson admitted to feeling slighted by the alleged plan of a Robredo-Sotto tandem.

“Si Sen. Drilon mismo, tinuro niya si VP Leni at si SP Tito Sotto na sila’y magkatandem, in my face. It’s good that I didn’t notice it, I was informed by SP after our meeting. Sabi niya ‘Hindi mo ba napansin na yung dalawang daliri ni Frank nakaturo samin dalawa?’ Parang effectively telling me in my face to withdraw and mag-create ng bagong tandem between the VP and Senate President. So sa akin, when I was told that, I felt insulted,” Lacson said.

Sotto, meanwhile, believes that Robredo’s attempt for unity talks is already a belated move as the Lacson-Sotto tandem has already established an organized alliance with different parties nationwide.

“Too late for us for any unity talks even at that time. We were already organized and set up nationwide. We are now forming a cooperative alliance between NUP, NPC, REPORMA, and UNA,” Sotto said. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Harlene Delgado)

Sara Duterte tells VP Robredo to ‘refrain from giving advice if she knows nothing’

Marje Pelayo   •   June 14, 2021

MANILA —  Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio on Monday (June 14) told Vice President Leni Robredo to “refrain from giving advice if she knows nothing about what is happening on the ground.”

This was Mayor Sara’s response to Robredo’s remark about how Davao City could learn from Cebu City as to how it successfully controlled the surge of COVID-19 cases by partnering with the private sector.

Robredo added that the COVID situation in the President’s hometown is quite “alarming.”

The presidential daughter said Robredo should “avoid involving the COVID-19 surge in Davao City in her attempt at politicking.”

“This has been the hallmark of her term as VP, where she puts forth comments on matters and affairs she lacks understanding and knowledge on and does not offer anything helpful to solve a problem,” Duterte-Carpio said in a statement.

She added that Robredo “should not attack the medical community of Davao City as being inactive when they have been silently suffering and working tirelessly to help save lives since March of last year.”

“She should open her eyes to the surge of cases in localities all around the world and she might be able to say that a surge in cases where 85% of the cases are asymptomatic is primarily identified by aggressive testing, coupled with tracing and isolation/quarantining,” she said.

Robredo made her comments after the announcement from 1Sambayan naming her as one of the coalition’s nominees for next year’s election.

Robredo and Duterte-Carpio are among the preferred names for the presidential polls next year.

“There will be a proper time to attack my performance as a [local chief executive] in this pandemic if she dares to run for President,” the younger Duterte said.

To date, Davao City tops the list of local government units with the most new cases of COVID-19 per day for the period of June 5 to 11 based on a report of the OCTA Research group.

Records show that Davao City has an average of 180 new cases per day during the said period followed by Quezon City with an average of 168 new cases per day.
