CITY OF MALOLOS — Amid a sea of yellow ribbons commemorating the 26th anniversary of the martyrdom of opposition leader Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., pastor Eddie Villanueva accepted the nomination of his Bangon Pilipinas Party to be its presidential standard-bearer in 2010.

Villanueva said he was running on a campaign platform of seven Es: empowering, emancipating and educating the people, elevating living standards, eradicating bad governance and establishing peace in the land.

“I officially accept today the nomination of the Bangon Pilipinas Party through its chairman, Dr. Cielito Habito, to be the standard-bearer of our party, as President of our country,” Villanueva declared before 10,000 supporters who gathered in front of the historic Barasoain Church here.

————

bro. eddie villanueva announced his candidacy for presidency wearing yellow, the same color that was ever present in the teaser ads he released. he also chose august 21, Ninoy Day, to launch his candidacy.

we were afraid for bro. eddie for choosing to have himself compared to the heroes  Cory and Ninoy. we thought he chose a strategy destined to fail as evoking the conjugal heroes will only make us see how small he is compared to them.

he announced he is running on a platform of 7Es:

  1. empowering
  2. emancipating
  3. educating the people
  4. elevating living standards
  5. eradicating bad governance
  6. establishing peace in the land

oops, wait a minute – that was only 6 points! we wonder if the PDI reporter was an error here or was it bro. eddie who may have forgotten another word that starts with the letter “e”? now, we’re even more worried.

here is one more thing that we got worried about —- bro. eddie claimed his JIL had a 5 million membership during the last presidential election when he ran but lost. 5 million is a huge number but he got only 1.9 million votes.

what happened to the other 3 million members? why did they not vote for bro. eddie. that performance, the under performance specifically among their own members need to be looked  to find solutions for it.

it worries me a lot.

Villanueva’s JIL movement claimed a membership of 5 million at the time.

Despite this, Villanueva finished last, with 1.96 million votes, tailing Lacson (3.5 million) and Roco (2.1 million).

Ms Arroyo won the controversial elections with 12.8 million votes, while her nearest rival Poe finished with 11.7 million votes.

    Ok naman si Bro. Eddie ang nakakatakot lang ay yung kanyang mga kapatid dito sa Bulacan… yung isa masyadong hot at napabalita nga dati na nanunutok ng baril… pride is the main reason why we cannot unite tgether… sana magsama-sama ang lahat ng kandidato para sa bayan.

      para sa mga naghahangad maupo sa pinakamatas na pwesto..
      cge lang…huwag paawat…ituloy ninyo ang inyong kanya-kanyang laban.
      dahil gustong-gusto ko yan. para sa isang gustong mangyari. ang pawagiin ang kupunan na ito. Ang Bagong Pilipinas, Bagong Pilipino Movement.

      as Bro. Eddie V. said; mas maganda kung mas marami. if u know what is that really mean.

      silay lilipulin at itatapon sa kangkungan..dahil magtatagumpay ang salita at pangako ng Diyos.

      ang resultang ito ay isa lamang palatandaan…
      sa nalalapit na halalan…ganitong ganito rin ang mangyayari.

      for God is with us!

      Bro. Eddie for 2010

      Mabuhay!

    “oops, wait a minute – that was only 6 points! we wonder if the PDI reporter was an error here or was it bro. eddie who may have forgotten another word that starts with the letter “e”?”
    When I heard him speak in our ACLE sa UP, he really speaks from the heart, not from memorized speeches. So its possible na nakalimutan lang niya sabihin yung isang E. But simply googling it up would give you the complete 7Es:
    * Empower the Filipinos
    * Emancipate the Filipinos
    * Educate the Filipinos
    * Elevate the standard of living
    * Energize the economy
    * Eradicate corruption
    * Establish peace in the land

    “what happened to the other 3 million members?”
    There was the Hello Garci scandal, the 2004 elections were heavily manipulated by the “Goliaths” in the government. I heard one story in Mindanao, sa household nila, 6 silang voters (and supporter ni Bro. Eddie) but then when the votes were counted, dalawang votes lang for Bro. Eddie yung nasa election returns from their precinct. Pano kaya nangyari yun? Hindi na ata kailangan ng mataas na IQ para malaman kung anong nangyari dun sa ibang boto. 😉
    In the 2004 elections, most people were cynical about him (including me..hehe, but I had a change of heart). So maybe some of his churchmates were not yet all that supportive. He announced his candidacy a few months before elections which made him lack time to prepare. Most of us perceive that politics is dirty so church people should have nothing to do with it. So nung nag-announce ng candidacy si Bro. Eddie most people thought na personal ambition lang (that’s also what I thought before). Pero hindi pala.. It’s really part of God’s agenda and we have to unite for this. I’m saying this with all due respect regardless kung ano man yung background, I’m not being religious, it’s really just out of a love for God and the country. I hope that Filipinos would really get the revelation of this vision.;-)

    I believe it’s really time for the Philippines to unite for real change in this country. C’mon!! May pag-asa pa!!!

      @honey : based on the PDI article, these are the 7Es that counts only 6Es:

      he announced he is running on a platform of 7Es:

      1. empowering
      2. emancipating
      3. educating the people
      4. elevating living standards
      5. eradicating bad governance
      6. establishing peace in the land

      oops, wait a minute – that was only 6 points! we wonder if the PDI reporter was an error here or was it bro. eddie who may have forgotten another word that starts with the letter “e”? now, we’re even more worried.

      this is your 7Es:

      * Empower the Filipinos
      * Emancipate the Filipinos
      * Educate the Filipinos
      * Elevate the standard of living
      * Energize the economy
      * Eradicate corruption
      * Establish peace in the land

      can you provide the link where you got those 7Es? i googled it, did not yield the info, all it had was the PDI article when you google it.

      your list don’t match with what was published at PDI.
      > “energize the economy” is not in the PDI article
      > also “eradicate corruption”

      in the PDI article, it says “eradicating bad governance”. is that supposed to be “eradicate corruption”?

      i do not think bad governance is the same as corruption. one is broader and includes the other.

      this adds to my worries — it looks like the communication team of bro. eddie is showing some incompetence. the inconsistencies in the wordings plus missing one E in the PDI article.

      it may have been an error by the writer of PDI, but given the other error, it looks like bro. eddie’s communication team is not doing its job properly.

      for such a big event, bro. eddie’s communication team should have prepared and distributed press kits to all media to make sure they get the message correctly and consistently. a PDI writer getting it wrong means bro. eddie’s communication team did not prepare a press kit. writers will always refer to the press kit for accuracy.

      i did not listen to bro. eddie’s speech – it is possible he forgot to mention the 7th E and said the wrong term on the other. the press kit would have given the reporter the correct words and number even if bro. eddie made an error in his speech. that is the value of the press kit and a competent communication team.

      it is sad that in the most important event in bro. eddie’s campaign, major mistakes like these are made. he should get a better / more competent communication team.

        have you checked the link?
        http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/08/21/09/bro-eddie-aims-presidency%E2%80%94again
        sorry for the late reply.. but i think you have to get your facts straight first before suggesting something like firing a communication team and calling them incompetent. I think the link is a reliable source din naman. Have you tried asking PDI? maybe sila yung nagkamali. no offense meant. 😉

    please read this: Memo To: Bro. Eddie Villanueva – get rid of your Communication Team, they failed you (click here: https://2010presidentiables.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/memo-to-bro-eddie-villanueva-get-rid-of-your-communication-team-they-failed-you/)

    as i said there, regardless of whether omitting 1 E is the fault or not of eddie villanueva, this is the incompetence of villanueva’s Communication Team. the communication team is supposed to prepare a press kit which should contain at least the speech of villanueva for the press to publish or air. the press kit will aid reporters in making sure they do not make a mistake in their reports or in this case everything is reported and no omission made.
