- Otso Diretso candidate Gary Alejano claimed that they are not “dilawan”
- Alejano clarified that there is no conflict between him and Mar Roxas
- The issue stemmed from the rift between Roxas’ campaign manager and Kris Aquino
Senatorial aspirant and Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano said that his political party, Otso Diretso, has no direct connection with the Aquino administration, the Liberal Party, or even the “yellows.”
KAMI learned that Alejano had clarified that issue about between Otso Diretso and candidate Mar Roxas.
“The story of Otso Diretso or its individual members is not based on the story of the Liberal Party or former President [Benigno] Aquino [III],”Alejano said, as reported by the Abante TNT.
“There’s propaganda to paint the previous administration or any critic or opposition member as ‘yellow,’ and that we all have the same faces. Let’s not be taken in by such propaganda,” he added.
Alejano shared that there is no conflict between him and Roxas.
“So far in my personal experience, we have good camaraderie. With Sen. Mar Roxas, along with [Sen.] Bam Aquino, our cooperation is OK,” he said.
As reported by the Inquirer (author DJ Yap), Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice, the campaign manager of Roxas, claimed that the former Interior Secretary regretted wearing yellow and being identified with former Pres. Noynoy Aquino during the 2016 polls.
"It was a conscious decision [to change colors] because one mistake [Roxas] made in 2016 was acting like Robin to [Aquino's] Batman...and Robin will never be Batman,” Erice said.
As previously reported by KAMI, the sister of Noynoy, “Queen of all Media” Kris Aquino, slammed Erice for blaming her brother why Roxas lost in the elections. However, Kris revealed that she has spoken with Liberal Party President Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, who asked for a “ceasefire.”
