drama king chiz escudero in non-event press conference announces he won’t run for president. ho-hum.

November 24, 2009 Leave a comment

we have decided to give chiz escudero the title drama king after today’s press conference at the historic club filipino to announce a non-announcement and a non-event – he is no longer running for president.

he was in his usual elegant and eloquent tagalog and in one part of the speech he said he was thinking about whether he should have just released a press release rather than hold a press conference to announce the withdrawal of his presidential pursuit.

we agree, he should have just done that and spare the media and us the time of having to drive all the way to greenhills only to hear his ho-hum announcement. right after his announcement, it was rumored that everyone was given double espressos and 2 bottled of red bull to prevent people in attendance from falling asleep.

we are really tired of the drama that chiz escudero makes us go through. in this last one we fail to see the point nor the wisdom of staging such an event when he had nothing to say.

he also did not announce what his plans are for 2010. all he said was he was no longer going to pursue the presidency. he did say why he was not doing so but we were so angry and frustrated and yes an overload of drama that we chose not to listen anymore.

what is even more frustrating was he did not tell us what he will do in 2010. it looks like this drama king chiz escudero will be staging another dramatic event on another time.

Escudero no longer running for president

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero announced on Tuesday that he would no longer be running for president in the May 2010 elections.

“Nagpasya ako na hindi tatakbo bilang pangulo sa darating halalan… [I have decided not to run for president in the coming elections],” said Escudero at the Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan.

“I always say that it’s the presidency but not at all cost,” Escudero said in his speech.

It has been almost a month since Escudero announced his decision to leave the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), his political party for so many years. The NPC was founded by businessman Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco.

Tuesday’s event was attended by his supporters like the Magdalo group, the Youth for Chiz, the young executives for Chiz, among others.

escudero moves to 2nd after days of slowly inching up and has now overtaken binay who slides down to 3rd. villar continues to lead although his lead has been slightly reduced.

also based on other surveys, escudero is shaping up to be a dark horse among the presidentiables.

looking at the numbers:

  • de castro on top is not surprising
  • escudero at 2nd is surprising. no advertising for senator escudero, just plain media exposure on his reactions to the political scandals the senate has been handling.  same fear he might run out of air with his monotone delivery but elegant and understandable tagalog.
  • estrada at 3rd is surprising. what is this man doing? it’s hard to believe all this is still the hang-over from post edsa dos. but he is there.
  • villar at 4th is comfortable. advertising works! that is what you say on villar.
  • why is roxas that low? he has advertising but it is not doing anything for him unlike what it is doing for villar. we will be sending a memo to roxas in the next post.
