Drilon to UNA: Stop whining, complaining

Team PNoy campaign manager Franklin Drilon on  Friday/Feb. 15 told  the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) to stop “whining and complaining” about the failure of its three adopted candidates from Team PNoy to show up in UNA campaign sorties.
 “They should instead present their platform of governance and what they have done to deserve the people’s mandate,” Drilon said.
“UNA should stop whining and complaining about the failure of its three adopted candidates to attend their rallies,” Drilon said.
Drilon was reacting to the threat of the rival coalition to no longer allow reelectionist senators Francis Escudero and Loren Legarda and former Movie Review Board chair Grace Poe to send proxies to their rallies.
Escudero, Legarda, and Poe joined President Aquino last Tuesday in launching the Team PNoy campaign at Plaza Miranda for the midterm senatorial elections.
Team PNoy spokesman Rep. Miro Quimbo challenged UNA to shut up and instead go to the Commission on Elections if they have legitimate complaints.
Quimbo said the Team PNoy would not resort to mudslinging as what UNA is doing, and instead it would focus on conducting a campaign anchored on performance and principles.
“Team PNoy will stand or fall on the basis of its anti-corruption and anti-poverty platform,” Quimbo said.
“Fighting corruption will make more funds available for basic services and vital infrastructure projects that will in turn raise the living standards and reduce the number of poor Filipinos,” Quimbo said.
