Ebdane widens 2010 race
‘I’ve crossed bridge; no more turning back’
The presidential derby widened on Sunday with former Public Works Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. formally announcing his intention to run under the Philippine Labor and Peasant Party and declaring “there’s no turning back.”
A graduate of the Philippine Military Academy and former chief of the Philippine National Police, the 60-year-old Ebdane is the latest aspirant for the No. 1 post in the May elections to announce his candidacy.
The former PNP director general said that with four decades of work experience in government, it would be a “sin of omission” if he did not run for president. He said he was seeking the endorsement of former President Fidel Ramos.
“I fight to win so there’s no turning back. I have crossed the bridge. I have no intention of going back,” Ebdane said after accepting his nomination during the national convention of the Philippine Labor and Peasant Party, formerly Lapiang Manggagawa.
“In my four decades in public service, where service 24/7 is the key to getting the job done, I realized that though I have helped to do much for our country, there is much more that needs to be done,” he said.
“I stand as the candidate with the first-hand working knowledge of how government really works and the track record to get things done,” said Ebdane, who resigned last month from the Cabinet. Inquirer.net
What a waste of precious votes! He’s no longer different from environment activist Nicanor Perlas and Olóngapo City Councilor JC de los Reyes, both of whom are presidential aspirants.
What do you call them again? Nuisance candidates? LOL!!!
For the nth time: rely on the convincing power of surveys. Do not waste precious votes (amp, buti talagá at hindí natulóy ang pagregistro có)!
And did he say “there’s no turning back”? Right now, we have to believe him. But wait till the counting of the votes begins. His confident “there’s no turning back” declaration will compress into two sorry words: “I concede”.
Now check this out:
He denied allegations that he was a stealth administration candidate out to destabilize the May elections, dismissing such insinuations as the work of people “having a nightmare.”
I dunno, but I find this very difficult not to believe.
Ebdane may have good intentions. But like they always say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions…”
Noviembre pa namán, Señor Ebdane. Marami pang horas para mag-isíp.
Think, sir. THINK.
