Pastor "Boy" Saycon Becomes Senior Adviser of Bahrain World Economic Summit (Philippines) Inc 0 Comment Group Picture taken inside
Bahrain World Economic Summit Philippines Inc. (BWESPI) President and Chairman Roa Jacob Sevilla joins hands with Pastor "Boy" Saycon, Secretary-General of the Council on Philippine Affairs (COPA), to bolster the campaign for Philippine delegation on the upcoming Arab-Philippines Economic Summit (APES) 2012.
Mr. Sevilla invited Mr. Saycon to become the senior adviser of the BWESPI because of the latter's vast experience and connections in the business and political arena.
Saycon is a businessman and political strategist who played a very significant role for the success of many prominent political figures in the Philippines.
The addition of Mr. Saycon to the BWESPI is a huge leap towards strengthening the organization and urging renowned personalities in the business and political field to partake in the biggest event of the year.

Pastor "Boy" Saycon, secretary-general of the Council for Philippine Affairs, issued the denial on ANC's "The Rundown" on Wednesday night.
"The Cojuangcos have carried Noy-Mar, and it shows in the results of how Tarlac voted for Noy-Mar, and he [Mar] has an almost 200,000 difference over Binay's votes in Tarlac alone, even in other areas, in Davao del Norte," Saycon says. "And I've heard how Congressman Cojuangco has been pushing for Noy-Mar in Davao del Norte."
No Roxas betrayal
Dismissing allegations of a rift in the Aquino-Roxas camp, Saycon, a colleague of Cojuangco in COPA, says the supposed betrayal of Roxas is far-fetched.
"How can there be a betrayal if there was transparency," Saycon insists. "What we're doing is independent with what they're doing. We do not belong to the Liberal Party. There is nothing that says in an election you can't choose your leaders. They have to respect our choices."
Saycon says they've always campaigned for a Noynoy-Binay ticket, saying Binay, who was an ally as far back as the first EDSA People Power, has proven to be supportive in the fight for democracy and genuine reform.
Birth pains of forming a new team
Saycon says what matters is the bottomline--supporting an Aquino presidency, one that was always a matter of personal choice.
"This is a decision that COPA does not have to decide but individual members have. There are many in the COPA who support Noynoy-Mar, and many have been supportive of Binay even before Noy wanted to run for president. The support for Noynoy is what matters most because as president he's the only one who can exact the changes that we all aspire for," Saycon says.
Dismissing supposed fractional problems in the campaign as "birth pains" in forming a new team, Saycon believes small irritations hounding the campaign will be overcome and personal interests will take a back-seat once the new government gets down to the business.
A sacred pledge
Amid supposed jockeying for position among groups who supported Aquino, Saycon insists, in the same way that the cause-oriented group did not aspire for any position in the administration of Fidel V. Ramos in 1992, pushing for a role in Aquino's government is not part of their advocacy.
"I have challenged them in all interviews: Let us all sign a document and a pledge not to aspire for any position and allow the incoming president to have a free-hand to choose those he believes can help with governance," Saycon says.
Saycon insists, COPA, which helped bring Ramos, Joseph Estrada, and Gloria Arroyo to power, is committed to helping the incoming administration, while at the same time remaining vigilant in making sure the new government delivers what it sought to do for the country.

Army captains say Saycon misled them1/30/2004 7:36:00 AM
The Army captains in custody for allegedly speaking out against Defense Secretary Eduardo Ermita said on Thursday they were misled by a civil society personality, Pastor "Boy" Saycon, into espousing the cause of a shadowy group of young military officers.
The five officers said a lawyer who had masqueraded as a fellow Army captain and who knew Saycon read a manifesto in their behalf for television footage.
Saycon, head of the Council for Philippine Affairs (copa), denied leading the officers on, saying they were the ones who came to him, asking his help to air their grievances against the government.
Saycon said what he did was "merely to assist the young soldiers in having their grievances aired before the public."
"What happened was not intended to overthrow the government.I was not the one who instigated the thing.Those soldiers sought my help and I just gave it to them," he said.
The group proceeded to a house in Filinvest, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, where Saycon greeted them.Saycon ordered them to change to their military uniform before facing the TV camera.
"Among those who attended were Saycon and members of Agpol," said the Armed Forces' information chief, Lt.Col.

Police learned that earlier Monday, Cervantes had met with Council for Philippine Affairs (COPA) Chairman Pastor "Boy" Saycon and given him documents, including a press statement purportedly from the "Young Officers' Union Central High Command" denying the involvement of his group in the meeting and an intelligence report.
In a phone interview, Saycon confirmed that Cervantes was in his home from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.
Aside from the documents, Cervantes had also brought him gifts, Saycon said.
Saycon refused to reveal the contents of the intelligence report, purportedly gathered by Cervantes through his own network.
Saycon was reportedly advised by National Security Adviser Roilo Golez to withhold the release of the document until it is submitted to the police.
‘Internal matter'
Saycon said he told Cervantes he could not help him because it was an "internal matter."
Saycon said the rift within YOU was palpable during the Christmas party of the EDSA 2 forces held at the house of former Tarlac congressman Peping Cojuangco on Dec. 18.
He said that practically all of the YOU members were there, along with representatives from other militant and socio-civic groups, and they obviously did not think much of Cervantes.
"It was apparent that they were at odds," Saycon said.
He asked the police to find out the identity of a man who left in a car with Cervantes from his home, saying that the man may have had something to do with the killing.
