NEWS: Chiongkee will not support Edu, wishes for peaceful 2010 elections

dec 29

Compostela Valley Governor Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy bared over the weekend that, although he is with the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD party, he does not like supporting the administration’s vice presidential standard bearer Edu Manzano.
In an interview, he said he is no fan of Edu and would rather support other vice presidential bets in the coming elections. He did not name yet his choice.
He said he is still supporting the administration’s presidential standard bearer Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro.
But on the otherhand he said that “we’ll cross the bridge when we get there”, when asked if his support is fixed for Gibo owing to the consensus of his Lakas partymate mayors and congressmen last month to support Teodoro and stick with Lakas-Kampi-CMD.
The governor also uttered, “we’ll just wait for the meantime” as his answer in an occasion when barangay officials asked him who is his presidential bet.
He added that he sees Gibo as more than capable to be the next country’s president given his top credentials and personal capability, but just like that “he ends up being associated with President Arroyo. ”
He hoped though that in the next three months Gibo’s survey ratings would shoot up, jumping over first Erap, then Manny Villar before the consistent survey topnotcher Noynoy Aquino.
In the same interview, Gov. Uy also said that he should be understood when he pushed for Villar during last month’s meeting of the mayors and congressmen in the province when they chose who to support among the presidential candidates, since “Villar is very close friend of mine and has helped the province.”
“We need also to test a businessman running this country. Villar also came from the poor,” he said.
When asked of his New Year’s wish, “I wish for a peaceful 2010 elections,” he said. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
