Team Pnoy vows unity; Aquino’s moonlighting hit

By Maricel Cruz | Feb. 13, 2013 at 12:01am
The 12 senatorial candidates of Team PNoy on Tuesday vowed to stick together as a united team during the 90-day campaign period, stressing that they would uphold the reforms and good governance instituted by President Aquino in the next three years.

The LP-led coalition made the commitment during their proclamation rally at the historic Plaza Miranda where President Aquino and Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim made a strong pitch for them to ensure their victories.

The 12 LP senatorial candidates are Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara, former Las Piñas City Rep. Cynthia Villar, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, presidential cousin Bam Aquino, former censors’ chairman Grace Poe, Jamby Madrigal, Ramon Magsaysay Jr., Senator Francis Escudero, Senator Loren Legarda, Senator Aquilino Pimentel, Antonio Trillanes, and Risa Hontiveros.

As this developed, Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casino, an independent senatorial candidate  criticized President Aquino for “moonlighting as a campaign manager for his senatorial slate.”

“We must remind the LP bets that President Aquino is the president of the whole country and not just  of the Liberal Party,” Casino added.

Deputy Speaker and Quezon Rep. Lorenzo Tañada III said the Team PNoy will underscore during the campaign the importance of being united as a team as this would help support in terms of continuity President Aquino’s programs of government.

Tañada expressed belief that the presence of the President in major campaign sorties of the administration party would be of great help to boost the chances of winning of its senatorial candidates.

“The President would be joining the campaign, not necessarily all the ninety days, but most of the 90 days,” Tañada, another spokesman for LP, said.

“We expect that all candidates will always with the team and until later when it breaks into two when on particular areas, they will make adjustments,” Tañada added.

Team PNoy is scheduled to visit Batangas today (Wednesday) and Laguna tomorrow (Thursday)  as  they hit the campaign trail to win over voters.
