  • "The Sergio Lobina Command of the New People's Army in Eastern Samar today assailed Urbano Barbo or "Pater", a councilor of Balangkayan town in the province, for extorting money from candidates in the election in the name of the revolutionary movement. "The 8th Infantry Division has been spreading lies about the NPA's so-called "permit to campaign" and "permit to win"," said Ka Rubio Manggubat, spokesperson of the Sergio Lobina Command. "Yet the real extortionist in Eastern Samar is the military in the person of Barbo, who is not only a Balangkayan councilor but also an identified agent of the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. While the military has been slamming the NPA during the election, Barbo and his criminal gang have been demanding money from candidates by using the name of the CPP-NPA-NDF and Fr. Santiago Salas, spokesperson of the National Democratic Front-Eastern Visayas.""
  • "A new report from the IPPR suggests that support for the BNP is not fuelled by immigration. It draws on the finding, which has been repeated elsewhere, that the BNP's support is largely not stronger in areas where there has been recent immigration"
  • "Malacanang keeps saying they have nothing to do with the Agra decision. Yet Malacanang has not lifted a finger to address public outrage over what has happened. At the minimum, not doing anything means Malacanang approves of the Agra resolution. No matter how you look at it, Malacanang is a party to this gross injustice."
