Albano is new RPN-9 chairman
President Arroyo has appointed former Team Unity deputy spokesman Tonypet Albano as the new chairman of the government-owned TV station RPN-9 vice former Sen.
Team Unity deputy spokesperson Tonypet Albano called GO's accusations that cheating will take place within the next 48 hours as "inflammatory and ridiculous."
"Unless, of course, the GO simply aims to poison the public mind once the avalanche of command votes for TU are counted in by the official count and the various quick counts within the next few days. The GO, after this happens, will cry cheating anew and its candidates will have an excuse for their miserable loss and possibly mount destabilization moves against the Arroyo administration," Albano said. Albano said the command votes will be factored in by the entities doing official and unofficial counts within the days ahead, shattering the early lead of the GO candidates, which some quick counts had selectively counted from opposition bailiwicks. He said TU is hopeful that at least seven of its candidates will land in the Magic 12 once the wave of pro-administration votes are counted, most especially those coming from areas where the opposition has failed to field candidates for the local or congressional races. Albano said the TU statements that there will be areas that would deliver 12-0 or at least 10-2 or 8-4 for the TU have been confirmed by the initial reports from the field and this is what probably terrifies the GO. Media reports showed that the May 14 election for senators was generally peaceful and was hardly affected by the occasional mayhem that attended local races, Albano said. And the GO had fielded anti-fraud teams in various parts of the country to protect the votes of its candidates as confirmed by spokesman Adel Tamano, Albano said. The GO should ease on its paranoia," Albano said. TU did not even raise an issue with the biased, pro-GO slant of most of the media stories and they made up for this by working harder, Albano said. He advised the GO that the post-election work for both the TU and the GO should focus on finding ways to work collectively to safeguard the results of the May 14 voting.
Tonypet Albano, a spokesman for a group of pro-administration candidates called Team Unity, says the variety is a healthy thing.'Politically it shows that we are a very democratic nation,' Albano says. 'That anyone, as laid out in the constitution, is qualified to run. â€¦ We are not barring anyone, whether or not he is a boxer or even a person in jail, (he) could run for public office and even senator of our land, just as long as they are not yet convicted of any crimes.'
The President's partisans tried to massacre the Lakas-CMD Party; the massacre failed; and what Team Unity spokesman Tonypet Albano proclaimed, prior to the elections, a "juggernaut" - an idol on rollers crushing all opposition before it - turned out too creaky to guarantee instant victory.
The Heckle and Jeckle of the Palace, Tonypet Albano and Romulo Macalintal, had to go out and try to convince the public of an alternate reality. Tonypet Albano, spokesman for the administration Senate slate, complained that the quick counts were biased for the NCR: But then Danny Magbual from Namfrel said the media quick count figures weren't very different from their figures, and both the media quick count organizers and Magbual pointed out most of their figures were actually coming from outside NCR.
Tonypet Albano, spokesman of the administration's Team Unity, meanwhile, said that the reason for the low turnout is "economics.""Why should I spend and waste one day [to go to the faraway embassy or consulate and vote] and when I only have one day off a week?"he said.
