THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE DANGEROUS…
The world’s best boxer, a woman with 3,000 pairs of shoes, military rebels and an alleged mass-murderer are among the characters contesting more than 17,000 positions in the May 10 Philippine elections. Here are some of the interesting personalities out for votes and an ego boost:
BENIGNO AQUINO, 50. According to opinion polls, the balding bachelor is set to win the presidential contest by a landslide.
MANUEL VILLAR, 60. The self-made property
developer (above middle) is one of Aquino’s main rivals. But his popularity has plunged amid allegations he used his posts in parliament to enrich himself.
GLORIA ARROYO, 63. The president for the past nine years is seeking a seat in the House of Representatives in what her critics allege is part of a bid to eventually return to power as prime minister.
MANNY PACQUIAO, 31. The seven-time world boxing champion is seeking a Lower House seat three years after being knocked out in a similar attempt.
JOSEPH ESTRADA, 73. Estrada (top right) gained popularity as a film actor, playing the lead role in over 100 films. He leveraged his popularity to make gains in politics. Became president in 1998, but was ousted in 2001 over corruption allegations.
ANDAL AMPATUAN SNR, 65. The head of a powerful Muslim clan is running for vice governor of Maguindanao province while in jail with his sons awaiting trial for the murders of 57 people in an election-linked massacre last year.
IMELDA MARCOS, 80. The ex-first lady left 3,000 pairs of shoes when she fled Malacanang palace during a popular revolt that toppled her husband, Ferdinand. She’s standing for a Lower House seat partly to win redemption.
