Erap torn between Binay, Poe

Administration bet Mar Roxas definitely is not in his radar and former President now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada is at the crossroad of who to support in the 2016 presidential election.

Vice President Jejomar Binay or Senator Grace Poe?

I will be choosing between mykumpadre Vice President Binay and my inaanak (goddaughter) Sen. Grace, said Estrada.

I will make the decision  a month from now or in the middle of the campaign, Estrada said yesterday, October 16, at a presscon.

Estrada admitted having a hard time deciding who to support between Binay and Poe.

Binay is the standard bearer of the opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), while Poe, the adopted daughter of the late movie icon Fernando Poe, Jr., Estrada’s friend, is on an independent dash to the presidency. Roxas is the candidate of President Benigno Aquino’s Liberal Party.

Estrada and his Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) teamed up with Binay and his Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in the 2010 election under the UNA banner.

Estrada lost the 2010 presidential race to Aquino but Binay busted Roxas, Aquino’s running mate.

Estrada said that his foremost consideration is the platform of governance of the candidates and will choose the presidential candidate whose “platform of governance jibes with mine.”

ERAP ENDORSES POE

Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada climbed the stage and acknowledged the presence of his bosom friend’s daughter, Sen. Grace Poe, saying, “The next…”

“President,” the crowd shouted, finishing the sentence for him, then let out a lusty cheer of approval of his apparent endorsement of the front-runner in the voter preference polls for the 2016 presidential election.

“Thank you,” Estrada said, adding, “You really know.”

It was the 76th birthday of Estrada’s late best friend, movie actor Fernando Poe Jr., but politics was palpable in the mood of the crowd at the commemorative event at Manila North Cemetery on Thursday as FPJ’s daughter tried to decide whether to run for Malacañang or stay in the Senate to steel herself for the job then go for it when the right time came.

She had earnest supporters. “Takbo Poe” (Run Poe), they said on the banners that decked the white tent in front of FPJ’s mausoleum. READ MORE
