Saving the best for last for MarSo convenor

AS the campaign period for the National election come to an end on Saturday (May 7), the Philippine Transport Monitor (PhilTraM) – convenor of the Marcos-Sotto (MarSo) tandem – made one last no-holds-barred transport caravan on Thursday at the vote-rich province of Cavite.

Members and officers of PhilTraM headed by National Chairman Aoi Bautista along with a number of supporters have joined one last time to convince more voters that the partnership of Presidentiable frontrunner BongBong Marcos and Vice Presidential bet Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto is the ‘best alternative’ in the coming May 9 election.

Marcos is running under the banner of Uniteam, while Sotto is the standard-bearer of the Nationalists People’s Coalition (NPC). While Marcos enjoyed a huge lead on all survey platforms, Sotto still has a fighting chance for the Vice Presidential race.

“Last hurrah na ng aming kampanya. Natutuwa naman ang grupo namin lalo’t talagang tanggap ng masa at mga botanteng Pinoy ang tambalang Marcos-Sotto na personal naming napatunayan sa aming pakikipag-usap sa mga mamayan sa aming paglilibot sa ilang mga lalawigan at lungsod sa bansa,” said Bautista whose group was welcome by an enthusiastic crowd at the Plaza in Brgy. Niog in Bacoor, Cavite.

“Dito sa Cavite, actually, nabuo namin ang PhilTraM three years ago, kaya historic din sa grupo itong aming kampanya higit ang maipanalo dito ang MarSo,” added Bautista

From Niog,  the group’s caravan hit the busy Aguinaldo Highway and along SM Bacoor they were met by bystanders and passersby who gamely acknowledge the caravans by throwing a V sign while touting ‘Marcos, Marcos, Sotto, Sotto, MarSo’ chant.

“Noon pa man, prepared na namin yang Marcos-Sotto. Parehon naming gusto ang kanilang plataporma para sa masang Pinoy,” said Aling Terry Marcial who peddled ‘kakanin’.

“Si Senator Sotto malaking maitutulong yan kay BBM pag sila na namahala ss Malacanang. Pareho silang may puso para sa mahihirap lalo na sa transport sector,” said tricycle driver Odie Velasco.

The caravan proceeded to Imus Cavite and ended in Dasmarinas.

With an estimated 800,000 votes promised to deliver by Cavitenos to Marcos, Sotto’s candidacy also met overwhelming mass-based support in the province which PhilTraM tried to solidify with a series of activities.

‘Bongbong Marcos para Presidente, atin ng iboto ang numero siyete. Bise-presidente, Tito Sotto atin ng iboto ang numero nuwebe. Subok na sa serbisyo at makatao, bansang Pilipinas siguradong asenso. Panalo ang Pinoy sa tambalng Marcos-Sotto, pagdating ng Mayo sila ang ating iboto’,” the MarSo jingle overheard during the Caravan.

‘Nasorpresa kami at nagalak sa mainit na pagtanggap sa MarSo tandem sa Cavite. Hindi namin inaasahan na mauulit ang mainit na pagsalubong sa aming grupo katulad ng nangyari sa pagsuyod namin sa Region 1, 2 at 3,” said Bautista.

From Brgy. Niog, the caravan made of delivery drivers, jeepney and tricycle operators, distributes flyers, posters, and paraphernalia bearing the accomplishment of Marcos and Sotto during their public service as both started their political careers as local executives, legislators and made a name in the Senate hall.
