    “Noy and Mar are so petty. They brought in backhoes to dig up Luneta so it would not be of any use in our rally,” Laviña said on his Facebook account.

    Rizal Park officials said they were only removing the asphalt from the Burnham green of Rizal Park and have no intention of sabotaging or disrupting Duterte’s miting de avance.

    Administration candidate Mar Roxas shocked supporters on Friday when he called for "unity" with Sen. Grace Poe, with whom he was statistically tied in the recent surveys. Though Poe said she would not drop her candidacy for Roxas but was open to a meeting.

    President Benigno Aquino claimed that Duterte had the makings of a dictator. In order to beat the mayor's 33% score in SWS polls, unity of Poe (with 22%) and Roxas (20%) camp is crucial.

    “The whole point is to get even two of them unite... then we have more than 40 percent,” Aquino said in an interview of ABS-CBN.
