under Duterte’s administration, but they eventually left their posts in protest of the drug war and other issues like former president Ferdinand Marcos’ burial before the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and an anti-left stance by Duterte’s government.But aside from being initially allied with Duterte, Trillanes also pointed out that the five 1Sambayan coalition conveners from Makabayan did not vote for Robredo, and instead showed inclination to another presidential candidate, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

“Inilahad ko rin ang mga pangyayari sa loob ng 1Sambayan na kung saan lahat ng 5 convenors ng Makabayan ay hindi bumoto kay VP Leni, at ang obvious na pagkiling nila para kay Isko Moreno,” Trillanes claimed.“Ang bottomline is, hanggang ngayon, hindi pa sila nagdedeklara ng suporta kay VP Leni. Iba sila,” he added.

On Binay, GordonAccording to Trillanes, he was also consulted before Senator Richard Gordon and former vice president Jejomar Binay was picked for Robredo’s Senate slate — to which he expressed reservations.Both Gordon and Binay have figured in a spat with Trillanes in the past, but the latter said that he let the selection committee decide on the issue. headtopics.com

“Para maliwanag, hindi ako kasama sa selection committee na pumili ng mga isasama sa Senate slate. Pero aaminin ko na ako ay nakonsulta sa pagsama kina Binay at Gordon. Nag-express ako ng mga reservations pero sa huli ay sinabi ko na ipapaubaya ko sa kanila ang desisyon kung ano sa paniniwala nila ang pinaka-ikakabuti sa kampanya ni VP Leni,” he said.

“Gaya ng sabi ko, ang number 1 mission ng Magdalo ay ang pagpanalo ni VP Leni. Ganunpaman, walang magbabago sa mga kasong nililitis sa korte laban kay Binay at kasama pa rin si Gordon sa kaso sa ICC,” he added.Last Friday, Robredo announced her Senate slate which featured eleven names. As a last spot was still left open, the Vice President admitted that Colmenares is one of the personalities being considered.

Just days before that,and other sources confirmed that he and labor leader Sonny Matula are currently in talks with Robredo’s camp about a possible inclusion to her Senate slate.EDVSubscribe to our daily newsletter Read more: Inquirer »

United opposition must embrace all ranks -- youth groupsYouth groups aired disappointment over the non-inclusion of Makabayan senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares in the senatorial slate of Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo for the May 2022 elections. Hahaha hindi nagka sundo sa bayad Halalan2022 Even Joma knows she's not going to win 🤭 Base on this picture, saan na ang social distancing? Non essential VP, ikaw ang dapat mag set ng good example. Kakalat na naman uli ang Covid sa ginagawa mo. Ang aga mo para mag kompanya. Shame on you!

No opportunity to talk with Robredo — MakabayanICYMI: Makabayan said it has not endorsed any presidential bet at this time because it is still in the process of consulting the candidates on platforms and programs, “while pushing for the broadest possible unity to defeat Duterte and Marcos.” Does a win over Duterte & Marcos translate as a win by the Filipino people ? Check the gdp from Cory to Aquino ,these reflects the scorecards & competence of each president after their term. They all failed except Aquino. Because good governance & competence works. Gusto nila endorse na ni vp c colmenares as one of her senatorial candidate eh the makabayan group nga hndi maendorse c vp robredo as ther presidential candidate eh ha ha ha 2way street dpat ha ha ha nobody wants identified with that group kc alam nila masisira lang name nila kc so obvious they're leftist...pero mas malakas suspecha ko they will collide with yellows (pink) kc ever since yellows are pro communist
