DAGUPAN CITY – Who’s afraid of the Ilocano vote?

grace chizGRACE AND CHIZ. Presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe of the Team Galing at Puso answers queries from the media of Pangasinan during a press conference held at the Star Plaza Hotel in Dagupan City last February 10. With her is vice presidential candidate Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero.

 

Not  Vice Presidential candidate Francis Escudero, who said he was not afraid of the so-called solid north vote, and that he sees residents of the different regions as Filipinos.
Escudero was with his running mate Senator Grace Poe in a political sortie in Pangasinan, while his rival Senator Bongbong Marcos was in another town, on February 12.
“Alam niyo, kung ang tingin man niya sa mga taga-Pangasinan o Region 1, Ilocano. Ang tingin ko po sa bawat kaharap– Ilocano, Waray, Ilonggo, Cebuano o Bicolano man, ang tingin ko po sa inyong lahat puro mga Pilipino,” Escudero said.
He explained that this was the reason why Poe and him run as independent and not under any political party.
“Gusto po naming pagsilbihan ng pantay lahat. Kababayan man namin o hindi, kapartido man namin o hindi, binoto man kami o hindi, gusto namin pantay na pagtrato at pantay na pag-serbisyo,” he said.
This is because poverty  dahil ang kahirapan naman po at ang kalamidad, ang El Niño at La Niña wala naman pong pinipiling bayan o probinsya, wala pong pinipiling kasarian o edad, wala rin pong pinipiling kulay o partido. ‘Yan po ang aking pananaw at ‘yan ang isusulong at dadalhin ko saan man ako magpunta,” he said.
He narrated the incident when he went to Ilocos Norte and he was asked why he went there.
“They told me, ‘Ba’t ka pa nagpunta rito? Alam mo naman na taga-dito ‘yung kalaban mo.’ I answered back,  ‘Pilipinas pa rin naman ‘to at Pilipino tayong lahat.”
The Ilocanos also told him most of them are Marcos loyalists.
“I said, ‘Ang tatay ko lang siguro ‘yung pinakamatinding Marcos loyalist na nakilala ko.’Talo pa siguro sila. Mula nang umalis si Marcos hanggang nilibing ang tatay ko, suot pa rin niya ‘yung kanyang red, white and blue sa balikat. So kung ‘yun man ang pananaw nila, parang mga tatay na lamang at nanay sila,” he said
