Cousins: Gibo Teodoro Against Noynoy Aquino

For the public's information Aquino and Teodoro are second cousins, their mothers Corazon and Mercedes being first cousins in the Cojuangco family. Mercedes is the youngest sister of business tycoon Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco.

We are all aware that the expected happens yesterday when Teodoro beats MMDA chair Bayani Fernando to be the Party's standard bearer. The two presidential aspirants took turns answering questions on
their respective positions on issues, including the Mindanao peace process, communist insurgency, climate change, youth, housing, agrarian reform, and graft and corruption. “
In the end, however, one man alone had to be chosen as standard bearer to lead the party in the elections of 2010 and, with God’s grace, to lead our country to its rightful place of dignity, unity, peace and prosperity,” Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs and Lakas-Kampi-CMD secretary general Gabriel Claudio said in announcing to the media the selection of Teodoro.

On the other hand, Noynoy Aquino by far reaches more than 50% by a survey conducted recently. Aquino, standard bearer of the Liberal Party, said “I wish him well,” Aquino said, even as he admitted that he was not really close to Teodoro.

They had always been on opposite sides of the political fence but respected each other’s positions. “(Our differences) never became personal. Maybe, we both were trying to understand where we were coming from, our backgrounds are different,” Aquino said.“Just like what my father, the late senator and national hero, Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Jr., always used to say, everyone should be running scared so as not to be complacent, “ he said.
