Miting de avance at Plaza Miranda
The beginning is where it will end.
The camp of Senator Grace Poe, Partido Galing at Puso (PGP) will hold its Miting de Avance on May 7. It will be where Senator Poe started her campaign bid for the Palace, Plaza Miranda, Quiapo.
PGP campaign manager Ace Durano said that they will end their campaign at Plaza Miranda, a place that Poe says she has an “affinity” with. Plaza Miranda is where they started their proclamation rally last February 9.
“Senator Grace’s affinity for Quiapo Church and Plaza Miranda is public knowledge,” said Durano.
During the proclamation rally last February, Poe detailed how she started her life as a foundling at the steps of a church. She found it fitting that she starts her next chapter in front of one, Quiapo Church.
“Nagsimula ang kwento ng aking buhay sa isang simbahan. Kaya minarapat ko rin na sa tapat ng simbahan ilunsad ang susunod na kabanata ng buhay ko,” she said.
She was also in Quiapo Church when the Supreme Court announced that she is free to run for president in a controversial landmark Supreme Court case. This case was praised by international jurors as a progressive step for the right of foundlings all over the world.
