UNA bets to split up to cover more ground
DAVAO -- The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) is planning to split its campaign team into three groups after the Holy Week to cover more grounds.
Senatorial candidate Nancy Binay said that although nothing is final yet, the plan is already on the table for three candidates who are leading in senatorial surveys to carry those who remain weak in surveys.
"We don't have the same funds as the [Liberal Party]. We can't afford to have the same number of advertisements. Ito na lang strategy namin -- to go straight to the people and talk to them face to face," Binay said.
UNA has yet to decide on who will lead the candidates but eyes are on Binay, Jack Enrile and JV Ejercito, who are among those ranking in the recent senatorial surveys.
Binay, Enrile and Ejercito are children of the so-called three kings of UNA -- Vice President Jejomar Binay, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and former President Joseph Estrada.
UNA senatorial bet Tingting Cojuangco said she believes the strategy could work to strengthen their bid.
"We have to carry each other on the field," she said.
Cojuangco claimed that surveys are not that reliable as they are all commissioned by the LP-led coalition Team PNoy.
Binay revealed that some of the possible scenarios UNA is looking at are to send one team in Visayas and another team in Luzon or to split the campaign into three groups in a province to motorcade in different towns then meet altogether at the end for the grand rallies.
