LEGAZPI CITY, 25-April-2013 (PNA) – Albay province has dropped two prominent Bicolano senatorial reelectionists from its “Magic 12” list in favor of non-Bicolano candidates, according to a survey done here.

Albay Gov. Joey Sarte Salceda has admitted that based on a survey, the “Magic 12 list” include United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) senatorial bets JV Ejercito Estrada and Juan Miguel Zubiri in lieu of reelectionists Francis “Chiz” Escudero of Team PNoy and Gregorio Honasan, also of UNA.

Escudero and Honasan are both from Sorsogon.

Salceda, the ruling Liberal Party (LP) provincial leader, said the 12-0 pro-administration votes may not be achieved in the vote-rich Albay with 720,000 registered voters.

The governor said a survey he had commissioned showed that Team PNoy will likely get only 10, with the names of Zubiri and Estrada included in the Albay “Magic 12” survey.

But, according to Provincial Board Members Ramon Alsua and Ireneo Sales, both reelectionists, Salceda is not supporting Escudero and Honasan because the two prominent Bicolano senators allegedly have not extended support to Albay even during calamity sufferings.

A poster with the photos of Escudero and girlfriend Heart Evangelista circulated in Legazpi City, saying that “with Chiz’s P2 billion pork barrel this election period, he left nothing for Albay.”

Last week, a controversy surrounding a P100-million ongoing dredging project at the controversial Yawa river here surfaced, but Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) officials denied implementing it, for reason only known to them.

The contractor of the project, who claimed to be a political protégé of Escudero, admitted implementing the project under the Albay 2nd District Engineering.

The contractor told the media that he was wondering why DPWH officials had to hide the project, saying he had started the works as early as February yet.

Salceda said he knew of the Yawa dredging project being claimed by the contractor and credited to Escudero but said that dredging projects had been banned in Albay by the DPWH itself, citing the strong protest from the church in the past because of alleged corruption involved in dredging projects.

He gave assurance that Albay will deliver votes that will give 10 for Team PNoy and with Zubiri and Estrada completing the Albay “Magic 12.”

A source said that Estrada’s name was included in Salceda’s “Magic 12” allegedly because the son of former President Estrada was a favorite of Salceda’s mother, while Zubiri’s mother reportedly originated from the town of Libon in Albay.(PNA)

  1. Just a rejoinder po. With all due respect,i am firmly convinced na hindi kawalanghiyaan o katrayduran ng isang bikolano o mga bikolano kung hindi na nila gugustuhin pang bomoto sa dalawang bikolanong senador.

    Una, dahil karapatan na ginagarantiyahan na man ng ating saligang batas ang karapatang makapamili ng bawat botante.

    Sa kabilang banda, baka mas marapat nating tawaging traydor ang mga halal na opisyal ng bayan na sa halip bigyang pansin kung hindi man prayoridad ang naghihirap na sariling bayan ay mistulang mas inuuna pa ang ilang mas nakakaunlad nang mga lalawigan, rehiyun o bayan.Ang report ng national statistics coordinating board ay malinaw na depressed aea pa rin ang sorsogon at bicol region a kabila ng katotohanang may mga bikolanong senador tayo na tulad ninda chiz at honasan.

    Dagdag dito ang katotohanang sa sorsogon mismo ay tila kapos tayo sa proyekto mula sa mga ito.Sa lahat ng Kanayunan?

    I hope, we can present reliable data tungkol dito. The suvey result should indeed, serve as wake up call to other bicolanos to reconsider position in choosing our national leaders, especially members of the upper house!

    BICOLANOS DESERVE PRO-ACTIVE AND BETTER REPRESENTATIVES AT THE SENATE. my thanks!!

  2. Hirap naman sayo ed, masyadong papuri sa dalawang bikolanong senador, alin ba ang tama ung chiz na bulok o ung chiz na sinungaling? o kaya ang gringo na tumakas sa batas at nagtago ng nagtago o ung gringo ng kabayanan na hawak ang asadol at araro? Ikaw po, chiz ka ba na sipsip o gringo kang tamad.

    • Bicol Region belongs to Bicolano Leadership.

      Let’s give everyone a second chance kung may pagkukulang man or pagkakamali man sila Sen.Escudero at Honasan na nagawa.

      At sana naman ang mga batikos sa kanila ay maging wake-up call at aral na rin sa kanila para na rin mapaunlad pa nila ang ating lalawigan na kagaya ng ibang probinsya na ngayon ay tanyag na city na na dinarayo na ng napakaraming turista at makapagbibigay na rin ng maraming pondo sa ating bayan at trabaho sa ating mga kababayang bicolano na hindi na kailangan pang magtrabaho sa Maynila o sa ibang bansa.Kaya mga kabayan h’wag pa rin po sana nating kalimutang iboto para Senador muli ang dalawang magagaling na Senador na sina Escudero at Honasan na kapwa nating Bicolano at h’wag nating ipagpapalit sa hindi naman talaga natin alam pa kung magmamalasakit sa sarili nating lalawigan. Maraming salamat po.

  3. Kawalanghiyaan at katraydoran ang Bikolanong mangampanya na hindi bumoto sa mga Bicolano senatoriables.

    Tingnan nyo ang profile ni Chiz at Gringgo sa House of Senate. Iilan lamang sila sa mga senador na maraming nagawa sa bayan.

    Bakit is JV Ejercito, ano na ba nagawa nyan sa atin? At si Zubiri, aber? ano ba magandang nagawa nya sa Bicol para ipagpalit natin ang isang magaling na Chiz at minsang naging bayani ng EDSA na si Gringgo Honasan? Mag-isip kayo!

    Papayaga ba tayo na may magkapatid na Estrada sa Senado??? Dalawang anak ng convicted criminal! Si Zubiri, ay naakusahang nandaya. kaya lumayas sa Senado. ITO BA ANG GUSTONG LIDER NI SALCEDA??!

    Noong nakaraang administrasyon na kung saan si Salceda ay dating tuta ni GMA, wala pong pork barrel si Chiz kaya wag natin syang hanapan ng infrastracture projects.

    Halungkatin nyo kaya ang port project ni Salceda sa Pantao, Libon para matauhan kayo?

    Ngayon sa panahon ni Pinoy na meron ng pundo si CHIZ. Tingnan nyo ang market development projects na ibinigay sa buong kanayunan ng Pilipinas?

    Mga Albayanos, alam nyo kung magkano ang bili sa boto nyo noong nakaraang eleksyon diyan sa Albay. Sa paniwala ko ang lahat ng namimili ng boto, ay may tinitagong kaitiman ng budhi!

    Iboto natin ang nararapat. At magpasalamat tayo at meron tayong Chiz at Gringgo na pinagtiwalaan ng ibang bayan para mailuklok sa Senado. Sasayangin ba natin ito?

    MY FAMILY AND I STILL VOTE FOR SENATOR CHIZ ESCUDERO AND GRINGGO HONASAN!
