Ms. Malou Tiquia, popular political strategist and founder of Public Asia, Inc. the latest addition to social weather companies in the country, made some bold predictions on Facebook in the wake of the withdrawal of Sara Duterte from the Mayoralty race in Davao City yesterday.
But as far as Ms. Tiquia is concerned, the next biggest news she wants to hear is PRRD running for a senate seat.
Ms. Tiquia remarked that PRRD can actually formed a coalition slate and if he makes it, is cinch to lead the senate as the next Senate President.
Ms. Tiquia said that for 2022, PGMA as Speaker, PPRD as SP under a tandem voting of BBM-SD is a possibility.
However, the biggest test that Ms. Tiquia wants hurdled is to elect 12 new faces in the senate which she admitted has never been done before but she believes, there is always that opening.
Out of the 5,400 reactors, only 11 netizens seem not to welcome the idea, 704 shared it and 504 netizens commented on the thread.
Note: The graphics used by Ms. Tiquia, if I was not mistaken, is called the Hail Mary Pass in American football. A Hail Mary pass according to wikipedia is a very long forward pass in American football, typically made in desperation, with an exceptionally small chance of achieving a completion. Due to the difficulty of a completion with this pass, it makes reference to the Catholic “Hail Mary” prayer for divine help.
Here are some of the comments from netizens below.
Wow! If this happens… it’s going to be a very exciting Philippines!
Love the Hail Mary Pass.. We can also pattern it to a 3 pt play on the other side of the court and time is running out on a basketball game. CHEERS! It’s about time.. #FORTHECOUNTRY
We need to get rid of these White. Elephants at the Senate.. Starting with these bullies of the Blue/pinkyellowshit Ribbon Committee headed by Dickhead.
I like how you used the American Football Hail Mary pass. You really are a strategist.
You may read Ms. Tiquia’s original FB post below now.
Looks like its a BBM-Inday and a formidable coalition of major national parties who have been waiting in the wings.
The next point is will PRRD file as candidate for the Senate? Mind you, PDP Laban had only 11 candidates and there will definitely be some substitutions there and with the coalition, concessions will have to be made for the final Senate slate of the administration.
If PRRD says yes to running for the Senate, he can actually lead the coalition slate and if he makes it, a shoo in for Senate President.
So for 2022, we can possibly have PGMA as Speaker and PRRD as SP under a tandem voting of BBM-SD.
The interesting and exciting challenge is to change the face of the Senate and get 12 new faces in the Senate. Never been done before but there is always that opening.
