It’s Atienza vs. Lim Part 2 in Manila

MANILA – Environment Secretary Jose 'Lito' Atienza will get to tangle again with incumbent Manila Alfredo Lim in the coming 2010 elections.

Atienza, who has served as Manila mayor for 3 terms, said he is confident that he will again defeat Lim just like what happened in the 2001 mayoralty race.

Atienza claimed the people of Manila are clamoring for him to run again as the city's economy allegedly went downhill under Lim’s rule.

Atienza added that most of his projects were “dismantled” when Lim took over as Manila mayor.

Joseph Estrada’s Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) will back Atienza as a “guest candidate." Atienza is a leader of a Liberal Party (LP) faction (LP-Atienza wing) that has not been recognized by the Supreme Court.

Atienza said he is grateful for the political support from Estrada, who has remained a close friend despite his ties with President Arroyo.

He said he will leave his post as environment chief as soon as the campaign period for local candidates stars.

The campaign period for local elections begins in March 26, 2010.
Lim unfazed

Lim, meanwhile, said he is unfazed by Atienza’s plan to “retake” Manila.

The incumbent mayor said his track record as the city’s administrator speaks for itself.

Lim said that unlike his opponent, he has prioritized education and health, having constructed more schools and hospitals for the Manileños.

Lim also claimed that his loss to Atienza in 2001 was a result of electoral fraud.

He has pursued his complaint before the Commission on Election but was forced to abandon it after deciding to run for senator in 2004.

Atienza used to serve as Lim’s vice mayor in Manila until the latter decided to run for president in 1998. Lim lost.

Unlike the 2001 race, however, the 2010 mayoralty elections will be much more interesting with the entrance of former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Avelino Razon as one of the contenders. With a report from Sheryl Mundo, ABS-CBN News

Ilaglag

Itong si Atienza at Razon ang hindi dapat iboto ng mga taga Maynila. Dapat ilaglag ito ng mga taga Maynila at pakainin ng alikabok ni Lim, although Lim is not a saint either pero lesser evil ika nga. Sino ba sa inyong mag-ama na Lito at Kuya Kim Atienza ang mapagkunwari? Ikaw na DENR Secretary ay siya pa mismo ang nangaabuso ng kalikasan, samantalang ang anak mo naman ay kunwari maka kalikasan pero ang ama ay mapanira naman, sino ba talaga?

Manilenyo Gising

Si Atienza ang gumagawa ng paraan para mabayaran ang mga General ng Militar ni GMA... Kung mahina ang Jueteng sa prubinsya siya ang nag iisue ng mga ECC at logging Permit sa mga mining and logging companies, tapos ito namang mga kumpanyang ito ang magbabayad sa mga Generals.

Tuta ni Gloria si Atienza...Kung kayang lokohin ni Gloria ang mga taga Pampangga sana ang mga taga Maynila ay di kayang lokohin ni Atienza. Corrupt si Gloria, at si Atienza. Birds of the same feathers flock together.

Wala na bang iba?

Lim, Atienza and Razon? Wala na bang iba?
Naubos na ba magagaling na Manilenyo?
Si Atienza, after nyang babuying ang Manila, gustong bumalik.
Si Lim, lalong binaboy ang Manila, gustong manatili sa puwesto.
Si Razon, matapos babuyin ang kapulisan, gustong babuyin ang Maynila.
Wala na bang iba?
Mr. Mayor Lim, yung mga traffic enforcers mo sa kanto ng Recto at Rizal Ave. garapalan ang pangingikil sa mga jeepney drivers! May mga barkers pa sila para manguha ng tong.
Pati ang harapan ng City hall, sobrang sama ng traffic dahil din sa mga traffic enforcers mo!
Ang divisoria hanggang ngayon baboy na baboy.
Mr. Atienza, Mr. Secretary sir... binaboy mo ang Maynila nung mayor ka, ngayon babalik ka pa?
Mr. General Razon... binaboy mo kapulisan, ngayon Maynila naman ang babayuin mo?
