Prof. Victor Andres “Dindo” Manhit gladly gave our group a briefing on the current political climate affecting our economy.

His presentation was short but informative and interesting.

3-5 Bong Go & Sonny Angara
3-7 Lito Lapid
5-7 Pia Cayetano
5-8 Bato Dela Rosa (I saw his tv ad, parang pelikula ni Darna o super hero sa komiks). Yan ang gusto ng mga Pilipino, parang artista sa pelikula na akala nila pareho sa totong buhay.
7-10 Nancy Binay
8-12 Mar Roxas
8-13 Bong Revilla (Dami pa rin nyang fans.)
9-14 Imee Marcos
9-14 Koko Pimentel
10-15 Jinggoy Estrada
11-15 Francis Tolentino
I think the next list included the name of Senator JV Ejercito. None of the Otso group is on the list. Ang tao kasi yung sikat ang mga ibinoboto, may name recall na kasi sila Lito Lapid, Bong Revilla, Jinggoy. Mahirap talunin ang mga artistahin. Pag mga nangampanya yan, nagkakagulo ang mga fans nila.
The three names mentioned as possible Speaker of the House are Lord Allan Velasco of Marinduque, Alan Peter Cayetano of Taguig, and Martin Romualdez of Leyte.
