Estrada gets Comelec nod: Watch my rating soar
MANILA, Philippines—Why just be a “kingmaker” when you can be the “king” yourself?
Fresh from getting the nod of a division of the Commission on Elections for him to take another shot at Malacañang, deposed President Joseph Estrada Wednesday said he would not withdraw from the presidential race.
Estrada said he would slug it out “to the end” because he wanted to be “king again.”
Estrada said the Comelec decision would have a “big impact” on his campaign” because his detractors were spreading “disinformation” that he would withdraw from the race or be disqualified.
Now that the poll body has ruled in his favor, he expects his ratings in surveys to rise.
