erap estrada” i will drop my presidential bid IF…”

erap estrada is the master politician – getting good press out of mar roxas withdrawing his bid for the presidency. the only problem is that he probably thinks we are not that smart.

estrada’s condition for dropping off the presidential race is premised on too steep, a near impossible condition – if the opposition will have only one candidate.

let’s hear what manny villar has to say on this one.

 

MANILA, Philippines—Ousted president Joseph Estrada, who is eyeing another go at the presidency, on Tuesday said he would only cancel his planned run if the entire opposition unites behind Liberal Party’s Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Estrada said this in the wake Senator Mar Roxas’ announcement of backing out from the presidential race in 2010 throwing his support behind the Aquino should the latter decide to run for the highest post in the land.

Estrada, in a phone interview, said Aquino, son of the late president Corazon “Cory” Aquino and martyred senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., is a qualified candidate, being the son of a hero and a former president.

“If the opposition only has one candidate, then I will withdraw,” Estrada told the media. “LP is just one party.”
