Ladlad, the partylist of the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals in the Philippines, vows to work hard to win the 2013 Partylist polls.
Ladlad nearly won the partylist polls last 2010 had it been effectively prevented by the homophobic Commission on Elections (COMELEC). Dante Remoto, now chairman emeritus of the party, was with me, fighting against these scums, err, magistrates in homophobic robes. Remoto and I signed the last impeachment complaint and we fought the Arroyo administration.
Now, with celebrity Boy Abunda with the party, the organisation expects to win the 2013 elections.
IN a presscon which only a handful was invited including Inquirer columnist Rina David, partymates of Ladlad are very confident that they will win this time. Abunda says that they will do everything just to win.
Abunda says he will use his knowledge being part of the campaigns of two presidents: Noynoy and Gloria. He says if they can muster enough votes from only three (3) regions, they would win: NCR, Regions 3 and 4.
He knows his politics. Partylist organisations such as Ladlad should take some cue from the successes of other partylist organisations which concentrated their campaigns on critical areas.
