Slip of tongue betrays Noynoy plan to save HLI


A slip of the tongue of Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino in a sortie to Davao City last Friday had betrayed his real intention of protecting his family’s interest in Hacienda Luisita in Tarlac if he wins the presidency in the May elections, Cavite Rep. Crispin “Boying” Remulla said yesterday.

“Noynoy’s excuse that as President he cannot order government to meddle in the affairs of a corporation like Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI) is very lame. What is that saying in Tagalog? Pag gusto may paraan, kapag ayaw maraming dahilan (If there’s a will there’s a way but a refusal has many excuses),” Remulla said.

The judge who issued the warrant of arrest against Sen. Panfilo Lacson over the alleged murder of the late publicist Salvador “Bubby” Dacer and his driver Emmanuel Corbito in Nov. 2000, has applied to become a justice in the Court of Appeals (CA), raising the possibility of a political payback.

Lacson’s lawyer Alex Avisado revealed this yesterday as he expressed apprehension over the possibility of the case of the senator being “influenced” by some highly placed personalities.

“Judges are also human, and as such they are susceptible to being influenced by statements of high ranking government officials,” he said on radio.

“She has a pending application to be among the justices of CA and who will be the appointing authority? No less than (President) Gloria Arroyo.... MORE

Feudal feud

The war of attrition between the Aquino and the Villar camps as the demolition teams of both presidential wannabes go full steam entering into the campaign period, is giving the public a taste of the character of the administration that both, should either win the presidency, will bring to government.

Villar, who is under siege from his many financial gains from the diversion of the C-5 road extension project to traverse his Parañaque and Las Piñas properties, has been charging that the Liberal Party (LP) is all behind the campaign to break his momentum for the presidential derby.

Based on the latest surveys, if they are any real gauge to go by, Villar appears.... MORE

Tough rules

Ninez Cacho-Olivares

Tough rules, but perhaps necessary, given the advantages the moneyed candidates have over the not-so moneyed bets by way of advertising themselves on electronic media.

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has released its campaign guidelines for the May 10 polls, one of which is that candidates running for national positions in the May 10, 2010 polls are only allowed to have 120 minutes for their broadcast advertisements or election propaganda in television for the whole entire campaign period, which begins in a few days. For radio, there is to be only 180 minutes of advertising.... MORE
