bro. mike velarde says he wants to be president

at the 6 o’clock news – bro. mike velarde says he wants to be president. in the interview velarde says it looks like being president is the only way he can help people.

 he will not campaign like most but he has set up a system of asking individuals to look for 24 other people who will support him, much like a pyramiding scheme works.

velarde is the leader of a religious group with a few million members and he thinks his scheme will work.

velarde also said his support for gloria macaoagal arroyo ends in june 2010 when arroyo’s term ends.


El Shaddai leader Mike Velarde on Wednesday revealed that he wants to run for president in 2010 and is “consulting” with the core members of the worldwide charismatic movement on his plan.

Velarde said he wants to get the approval of the religious group’s supposed seven million followers in the country because without their support, his dream may not materialize.

“My entering politics lie in their hands because we believe that the voice of the people is the voice of the Lord. That dictum is not just for any people. It should be for the voice of the people of God,” he said.

“I am in the process of consulting our members nationwide and worldwide what to do in the 2010 elections,” he added.

El Shaddai – a Catholic charismatic movement which is reputed to have played a pivotal role in the country’s past elections – has international chapters in over 30 countries.

Velarde said that should he flock ultimately vote against his running in the upcoming polls, he would just endorse one of the candidates.

“If they don’t want me to run, then let’s agree to make a choice whom we can vote. I still have my plan,” he said.

In March, Velarde hinged his plan to venture into politics not solely on his millions of followers but also on religious officials from the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

“’Pag sinabi sa akin ng CBCP, ‘ikaw na Brother Mike,’ sasabihin ko, ‘yes sir.’ Kasi masunurin ako, I’m a loyal soldier kasi ng simbahan,” Velarde said. [See: Bro Mike Velarde tatakbong presidente kapag inindorso ng CBCP]

    Mike Vilarde is also a construction contractor of DPWH. When Director Jerome dela Rosa was RD of Region XI Velarde got contracts in Davao City. There were speculations that he is somehow involved in the C5 controversy because his property is near Villar’s. Or he could be the real reason for the double budgeting because of his influence in the public works and highways.
