TUTA vs GAGO - A Real Mature Philippine Politics

Its mud-slinging and bickering at its best. The administration candidates call the Grand and Broad Opposition as GAGO (Grand Alliance of Genuine Opposition). In return, the oppositionist call the administration team as TUTA (Team Unity, Team Arroyo). But whatever they may call each other, we are still waiting for them to present their platforms and their agenda. As of today, the following senatoriables have submitted their certificate of candidacy.

Genuine Oppositions: Loren Legarda, Panfilo Lacson, Francis Escudero, Alan Peter Cayetano, John Osmena, Benigno Aquino III, Aquilino Pimentel III, Sonia Roco, Antonio Trillanes, Nikki Coseteng, Manny Villar, Francis Pangilinan

Team Unity: Michael Defensor, Juan Miguel Zubiri, Adgardo Angara, Ralph Recto, Joker Arroyo, Chavit Singson, Tito Sotto, Tessi Oreta, Prospero Pichay, Vicente Magsaysay, Jericho Patilla, Cesar Montano

Independent Candidates: Gringo Honasan, Richard Gomez, Oliver Lozano, Zosimo Paredes, Danton Remoto, Elly Pamatong

We all dream of the time that Philippine politics will mature. With these batch of candidates, well, we should keep on dreaming.
