February 2010, that’s the official date to campaign for those hopefuls to be the president of the Philippines. But two years before the awaited date, (even earlier than that) echoes of who’s going to run for the 2010 Presidential Election is already an issue everyone awaits.
Santiago said endorsers usually argue that there is no premature campaigning because they have not yet filed their certificates of candidacy. The argument have reached the Supreme Court.
“That argument is specious. Can they look at themselves in the mirror and say the same thing? They were never commercial endorsers before they became senators,” she said.
Some of those mentioned above did not admit yet about their desire to run for president in 2010. Although people are getting suspicious because some of their staff (with their blessings of course) have sneaked their way into campaigning them in some of the most popular social networking site in the Philippines and the Blogosphere. However, two of them like Villar and Fernando have blunt fully admitted their bid for the 2010 elections is a sure thing.
Here are the list of the 2010 Presidential hopefuls I’ve gathered. I would suggest to all Filipino in the world to take a look at their blogs and social networking sites, read their bio-data so that you can have a grasp of what kind of person will be the next president of our beloved country. We all know now based on our experiences that we should choose wisely or suffer some more bad consequences.
So without any furthere ado the 2010 presidential hopefuls:
2) Senator Manuel “Manny” M. Villar Jr.
Manny Villar For President Website
Blog (no blog yet)
Facebook (there are dozens of Manny Villar in there but ,I don’t think he is in yet)
3) Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas
Mar Roxas for President Website
Blog (that one who is so prominent in blogger blogs Mar Roxas for President blog is not his official blog FYI)
Aside from the above named there are others I’ve heard who will also run for the 2010 Presidential Election Circus like Quezon City Mayor Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte Jr.
This is going to be a very exciting Presidential elections I think that is if the present administration will allow it from happening since it seems President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is cooking something to have the Charter Changed and hopefull keep her in position. Scary thought really, but I hope not.
Since they all want to be the President of the Philippines and occupy this seat, I will leave it to them them because I am in for the bigger fish.
