Why Gibo TV ads haven’t been seen


Original Story:

THE presidential political adviser yesterday gave a good excuse on why Filipino viewers have not seen any TV advertisements of the national candidates of the administration party Lakas-Kampi-CMD.

Prospero Pichay Jr. Pichay said the ruling party is "pacing" its resources to accommodate also its local candidates.

"We have to bear in mind that we are running a big machinery that’s around 80 percent of all the provinces and districts and cities (where) we have candidates. So we really have to pace our logistics. We cannot just spend money left and right," he said.

He said the administration party still has campaign paraphernalia and advertisements, but not in the form of television ads. "Well, eventually, we’ll go to television ads and radio," he said.

He expressed confidence the administration candidates would still be victorious despite the lack of television advertisements.

Pichay also brushed aside the high survey ratings of some candidates like Sen. Benigno Aquino III of the Liberal Party and Sen. Manuel Villar Jr. of the Nacionalista Party.

He said the survey ratings do not exactly translate into votes on Election Day and that in the end, the Lakas-Kampi-CMD machinery will deliver the votes for its candidates led by standard bearer Gilberto Teodoro Jr.

Teodoro is in fourth place in surveys of major pollsters.

Pichay noted the ratings of Aquino and Villar are already going down and that if the trend continues, he said, Teodoro will eventually catch up.
