It is so unfortunate that a presidential candidate who was an ambassador of the Philippines to the Middle East and who withdrew his certificate of candidacy succumbed to cardio-pulmonary attack. It could also be due to the diabetes mellitus that he suffered from. He would have been a good candidate to give the leaders on surveys something to think about. GP the foundling is once again leading the race; tied on 2nd place are “Nog_ _ _”, the “hoodlum-lover boy”, and the” jack of all trades, master of none”. The candidate whom I wish to vote is at the bottom and even though she is always construed as “Brenda-mage”, I still prefer her over the other candidates. Do you have you own bets now? The race is definitely on especially when the campaign period will begin.

the good thing there in your country is you only have 2 candidates, and the counting of votes is so fast that you can get the results nationwide few hours after the election. herein my country, there are 5 presidential candidates

So your candidate is Brenda-mage . She was said to have skipped some of the ceremonies in their announcements at Batac , because she was a bit not feeling good anymore. It is said that it's caused by her medication .

i hope so too, my friend. Politics here in my place is clouded with money, money, and money, so whoever "pays more gets more votes".

@salonga and they think that allowing the candidate to win will lift them off the hardships of life; what if they will be fooled again by the robbers?

Did not know that he withdrew his candidacy already. Sorry to hear about his attack and hope he recovers. So you want to vote for M! Yes she is at the bottom. She is not campaigning that much unlike the other candidates.

no, my friend, he had a cardio-respiratory attack so he expired. I also believe that MDS is not yet campaigning because it is not yet the time to campaign. I read on FB that on the 14th of this month, they will stage a grand campaign with the youth

@ridingbet yes i heard last night of his sudden demise. How sad. M is very popular among youth. i just don't understand why in surveys she remains at the bottom. anyway the campaign period starts already so let us see if her ratings improve.

@salonga so far, it is only she among the rest who I think has the personality of a president of our country. Nog_ _ _ does not really look like a president (not all Pinoys are Nog_ _ _, right?), GP is is not yet ripe for the position. I bet if she wins, there will be many advisers who will run the show. MR is also a master of none, I don't like him. lastly, that hoodlum does not show a good personality of a president.

I read that news too earlier. Sigh.. I cannot vote as I was not registered in the biometrics system. It was too late when I knew about it.

Roy S could give the candidates a run for the race; too bad he succumbed to cardio-respiratory arrest and complications of diabetes mellitus

@ridingbet yes. But he also backed out prior to that.

@nottoooldtowrite Maybe he had the premonition that he cannot really run for public office that was why he backed out from the race

If your president is the one with 'brain damage', then we belong, hija. Even though she is the last in the survey, I believe they will start their campaign period when the day begins any day now.she is the candidate of the youth.

I am still undecided but right now I'm going to try this one from Davao. From his speeches and the recent debates, it seems he knows how to do it. but contrast with my mom is a pro LP candidate.
