DAVAO DEL NORTE: IGACOS CITY MAYOR UY JOINS INDAY SARA’S HNP; BACKS CATALAN FOR GOVERNOR

Igacos City Mayor Al David Uy has joined the Hugpong Ng Pagbabago (HNP) in a big boost to the bid of Davao del Norte Provincial Board member Roy Catalan to capture the Provincial Capitol in the May 9 elections.

The switch of Uy (PDP-Laban) to the HNP of vice presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and endorsement of Catalan, was expected to hammer a fatal blow on the reelection of Governor Edwin Jubahib (Partido Reporma).

Also to benefit from Uy’s jump to HNP is Davao del Norte Second District Rep. Alan Dujali, who is seeking a second term under the HNP, a major player in the UniTeam tandem of presidential aspirant former senator Bongbong Marcos with Sara Duterte as vice president. PDP-Labanhas endorsed theBongbong-Sara team.

The switch of the top official of the vote-rich tourist island Igacos (Island Garden City of Samal) comes days after Reporma president former House Speaker Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez (First District, Davao del Norte) and Reporma secretary general Jubahib dumped Reporma standard bearer Senator Panfilo Lacson and switched suport to independent presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo, who is running second in pre-poll surveys to Bongbong Marcos. Alvarez and Jubahib reportedly dumped Lacson for failing to shell out P800 miilion in campaign funds demanded by the former House Speaker.

LACSON: ALVAREZ ASKED P800M FOR HIMSELF NOT FOR REPORMA CANDIDATES

Presidential aspirant and erstwhile Partido Reporma standard bearer Senator Panfilo Lacson said the P800 million that Davao del Norte Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez asked from him was not for the campaign of Reporma candidates but for himself.

Lacson made the revelation days after parting ways with the former House Speaker and his party.

On Thursday, Lacson announced his resignation from Reporma after Alvarez , Reporma president, with secretary general Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib announced that they are dropping Lacson as Reporma presidential candidate and endorsed the bid of Vice President Leni Robredo.

A day later, he disclosed that campaign expenses amounting to PHP800 million was the reason for Reporma’s switch to another bet.

Lacson said he found out from Reporma candidates that the money was not meant for their campaign.

He said his conversations with Reporma local candidates showed that they never pressued ezto provide them funds.

“Kung corrupt ako, madali ko sanang maibibigay ang PHP800 milyon na hinihingi nila (If I were corrupt, I could have easily given the PHP800 million they are asking for). But I don’t have the guts to steal or accept bribes. Nothing can ever change my principles and tarnish my integrity. This fight is not just about me and the present. It is about our country’s future,” he said on his Twitter account.

 Lacson reiterated his stance against money politics, where candidates give voters what they want during the campaign period – then get back their “investment” by engaging in corruption during their terms – three years for local posts and six years for national posts.

“As long as ‘money politics’ dominate our elections, it will be a vicious ‘cycle of revenge’ between candidates and voters: voters having a field day during the campaign period and candidates exacting vengeance for three or six years of victory. Kawawang Pilipinas,” he said.

Presidential aspirant Senator Panfilo Lacson said money was the reason why Alvarez and his party Partido Reporma abandoned him to shift support to rival Vice President Leni Robredo in the presidential race in the May 9 election.

“If pre-election surveys was his primary reason for switching his support, I don’t believe it because like me, Mayor Isko and Sen. Pacquiao, his newly chosen candidate is also lagging far behind the survey leader,” Lacson said.

“Time to call a spade a spade. It was actually more about the issue of campaign expenses for their local candidates. His chief of staff was asking for 800 million pesos in additional funding which I honestly told him I cannot produce,” Lacson said in a statemnt on Friday, March 25.

“We reasonably believe that the only realistic option at this point, with roughly a month and a half left, is to converge with Leni Robredo’s campaign. Together, we will pursue the realization of our collective aspirations to improve the chances of ordinary Filipinos at a better life,” Alvarez said.

Alvarez said Robredo represents ideals that are substantially in line with the aims of the party, which are “to reform government and provide a better future for Filipinos”.
