LP's "Rock the Vote" concert caravan ends in Cebu

CEBU, Philippines - The last leg of the Rock the Vote: Roadtrip to Change concert culminated in Cebu City last night with various senatorial candidates of the Liberal Party together with some of the country’s top bands and performers.

Rock the Vote: Roadtrip to Change was a concert caravan trail-blazing through different provinces, cities, municipalities and barangays in the country since April 15. It was inspired by the message that the power of change lies in everyone’s willingness to participate.

In a press conference yesterday, the nephews of LP standard-bearer Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, Jondi Aquino-Cruz and Miguel Aquino-Abellada, said that the Rock the Vote caravan aims to harness, utilize, and reenergize people power as manifested in the various forms of volunteerism on the ground.

“This is a celebration of hope and one way of saying thank you to the people who continue to support our uncle and his entire team,” says Cruz.

Meanwhile, LP senatorial candidate Risa Hontiveros said that the camp of Nacionalista Party standard bearer Manuel Villar is now getting desperate and resorting to all sorts of propaganda just like pushing Aquino to undergo psychological test.

Senator Francisco “Kiko” Pangilinan, LP’s campaign manager, said that all the black propaganda from Villar’s camp are backfiring, a proof of which is the continued poor ratings of Villar in recent surveys.

“Yang sinasabi nilang psychological test dapat tigilan na nila yan dahil hindi naman kinagat ng mga tao,” Hontiveros said.

Pressures are now mounting on Aquino to take a psychiatric test or at least come out with his psychiatric records.

NP secretary general Senator Alan Peter Cayetano said that “Senator Aquino’s mental health is not a private matter but a public one”.

NP spokesperson and senatorial candidate Gilbert Remulla echoed the same saying that for the longest time, Aquino has not confronted the issue of his mental fitness head on. 

His spin masters and handlers insisted to ignore the issue. Remulla said that even in the US, the state of mental health of presidential candidates is a major political issue. (FREEMAN NEWS)
