It’s a blunt statement from one of the presidential aspirants, progressive labor leader Leody de Guzman – the opposition has been fractured for a long time.
De Guzman said this on the sidelines of filing his certificate of candidacy (COC) for president on Wednesday, October 6.
“Nakakalungkot dahil si Leni, kinausap niya si Isko, kinausap niya si Pacquiao, nabendisyunan ng oposisyon, hindi naman sila oposisyon, nagkukunwari lang silang oposisyon,” said De Guzman, referring to Vice President Leni Robredo’s unification efforts.
(It’s sad because Leni talked to Isko, she talked to Pacquiao, they were blessed by the opposition when they are not opposition, they’re pretending to be opposition.)
De Guzman who shuns the elite, including the Liberal Party, pitches not for a regime change, but a system change. He will run under the progressive party Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM). – Rappler.com
