EDU MANZANO TEAMED UP WITH GIBO TEODORO JR. AS HIS VICE PRESIDENT
The showbiz factor in the GIBO TEODORO JR. candidacy is a movie actor himself, EDU MANZANO.
It is not true that the issue in the Philippines is the apparent absence of separation of Church and State. Excuse me, but it is more politics and showbiz. They can never be separated. They're like Siamese twins that are attached body and soul.
Just take a look at Noynoy Aquino. He has Kris Aquino as the important ally for his popularity to the masses.
Erap Estrada is the movie celebrity who is a forever hero to the 'OPPRESSED UNWASHED". It is only Villar who has a partner who has no showbiz link but is a celebrity herself, Loren Legarda.
Is Edu Manzano qualified?
According to wiki, Edu Manzano was a US citizen (jus soli) under the US immigration law that grants citizenship to people born in the United States. But he was also declared by the Court as natural-born Filipino citizen because of his parents who are both Filipino citizens at the time of his birth.
When he ran for Vice-Mayor in Makati, he renounced his American citizenship. He served as vice-mayor of Makati contrary to the views of some that he did not have the experience of being an elected public servant.
This is for information purposes only. This blog does not endorse his candidacy because I believe that there is one candidate who is better prepared for such a position as long as he/she is not made wall-flower by the elected President and relegated to the entertainment function only.
