Outgoing Vice President Jejomar Binay, Senator Manny Villar and Senator Bongbong Marcos have one thing in common – their name is tainted with corruption allegations via media propaganda but the fact is, whatever they touches, turns into gold! They are the envy of any insecure politicians in power becaue they have the “Midas” touch!
However, it turned out differently with incoming President Rodrigo Duterte’s regime. He is starting to use these capable people indirectly. Manny Villar who remained to be the richest senator Philippines could ever have already signed up to merge his political party NPC with Duterte’s PDP Laban for a coalition. His son Congressman Mark Villar will also be the new DPWH secretary.
The next richest senator, Bongbong Marcos’s Vice Presidential bid is still hanging pending the reading of the official canvass certificates that starts on May 23, 2016. It is evident that these 3; Binay, Villar and Marcos joined forces to topple the Liberal Party’s reign and it worked. So, the people are excited what could come next from their alliance.
