VP says Team PNoy 'too confident' on 12-0 sweep
MANILA -- Vice President Jejomar Binay believes the Liberal Party-led coalition Team PNoy is too confident on getting a 12-0 sweep in the upcoming May 13 polls, noting that only few of the senatorial bets have been attending the party's rallies and sorties.
Speaking to reporters, Binay shared that not all senatorial candidates of Team PNoy have been attending the party's rallies in the provinces.
"Kasi noong nandoon ako sa Iloilo tinatanong ako bakit, hindi ko alam. But we're talking of a matter of fact. Si Presidente, tila yata sa isang provincial meeting ang kasama niya isa lang. Ngayon lang ako nakarinig ng ganoon ha, Presidente isa lang. Pambihirang mangyari yan. Si Jamby [Madrigal] lang," he said.
"Dagdag na lang siguro ito sa tinatanong, bakit sila kokonti lang ang umaattend sa rally? Siguro naman hindi niyo ito matatanggi. Pero this is not for us to comment or make demands. I'm just telling you things that others have frowned upon," he added.
When asked if he thinks the administration ticket is too confident that the entire slate will win in the upcoming midterm elections, he just said: "Bahala na kayo dun. Baka kasama sa confidence 'yung 12-0. Kung magbibilangan tayo ng umaattend sa rally, pambihira naman 'yung 12-0."
Binay, one of the so-called "three kings" of the United Nationalist Coalition (UNA), said the opposition coalition is just focused on campaigning for the polls.
"Ito lang ang aming pang-counter. But I think you will agree with us na logistics, activities at kung ano pa, hindi kami pwedeng tumapat sa kabilang grupo. Kaya ito binabawi namin sa rallies, motorcade, eyeball-to-eyeball at kung anu-ano pa," he said.
