Tarlaqueño Gibo sees:

PANIQUI, Tarlac — THE tandem of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) presidential candidate former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will win in the elections, UniTeam senatorial candidate Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro Jr. said Saturday night.

Teodoro, former secretary of the Department of National Defense (DND), based his prediction on the mammoth crowds who have been turning out in rallies of the UniTeam tandem across the country.

Teodoro, who has been joining the provincial campaign of Marcos and Duterte around the country, said Marcos and Duterte are on their way to victories as shown by the sustained massive turnout of voters in rallies that the UniTeam is holding around the country.

“Natural,” Teodoro, a former three-term Tarlac congressman, said when asked by a journalist during an ambush interview following a rally in Tarlac City on Saturday if Marcos and Duterte can win in the upcoming presidential elections.

“Sa tingin ko,” the senatorial candidate said. “Nakita naman natin ang init ng pagsalubong kay BBM-Sara. Palagay ko nagdesisyon na ang mga Tarlacqueño. At ako rin kasama nila at ako rin tinatrabaho ko bilang isang Tarlacqueño dahil inaako na rin namin sila.”

Tarlac City Mayor Cristy Angeles said Marcos will also win in the city, judging from the reception that he and his party got during the campaign.

“Nakita naman po natin ang mainit na pagtanggap, pagsalubong sa kanya. Ganyan po namin kamahal si BBM,” Angeles said. “Buong Tarlac din.”

Meanwhile, Teodoro dismissed comments that the UniTeam disrespected the memory of former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. when his monument was partially covered during the UniTeam rally in Tarlac City, saying this was unintended.

“We gave respect with our words to everybody. The UniTeam is not here to disparage anybody and I’m sure if there was such an incident, this would be inadvertent,” Teodoro said.

“Our message is one of unity and mutual respect. So, if there was an inadvertent happening then it wasn’t on purpose. We’re so busy on our message of oneness and unity,” the senatorial candidate added.

Teodoro also shrugged off insinuations and notions that the UniTeam’s rally in Tarlac, which is the home province of Aquinos, was an attempt to revise history.

“You ask the people whether that’s historical revisionism or not. After EDSA, there was revisionism. So now the people are just doing what they feel will bring back their lives, will bring the Philippines forward, and not history and not turning accusations left and right,” he said.

“We’re here for the future, a forward-looking agenda for the people. That’s what we’re here for,” he added.
