Manila, Philippines – STAR-STUDDED CAMPAIGN – The fourth district of Camarines Sur is now literally star-studded. The likes of Coco Martin, Sharon Cuneta, Kris Aquino, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Niño Muhlach, Willie Revillame have visited, or will visit the place, to campaign for Aga Muhlach, who’s running for congressman under the Liberal Party.
There were problems along the way, like questioning Aga’s residency (and that of wife Charlene Gonzalez) and citizenship, but the Court of Appeals and Comelec have ruled in the actor’s favor.
Although lawyer Howard Calleja warned political opponents would surely throw more obstacles, but then that is the price one has to pay when a candidate is extremely popular.
BY A MILE – And all surveys in CamSur’s fourth district show that Aga Muhlach is winning by a mile, 54 percent for the actor and 32 percent for the opponent. With 13 percent undecided and 1 percent don’t know.
Obviously the voters of the district (some 300,000) are tired of the dynasty which has ruled them for a century. Aga’s a fresh air in the district, vowing to work for their welfare if and when he’s elected congressman.
As election campaign nears, more and more Aga friends, stars, and non-showbiz folk alike, promise to help.
The people of the fourth district of CamSur are thrilled and thankful that, for the first time, their place is getting known, landing on the newspaper pages and radio-television.
