BANTAY PILIPINAS correspondents and media news broke the sad news that political dynasties and hweteng lords defeated the good guys in the last elections. This while there was wide spread rejoicing over the national victory of the LP. Isabela Gov. Maria Gracia Cielo “Grace” Padaca and Pampanga Gov.

The impending proclamation of new politics icon Grace Padaca winning by a slim yet clear margin, is now at a standstill as there is a plot to deliberately delay and rig the results of Isabela polls in favor of the challenger, former governor Benjamin Dy. A deluge of legal maneuvers have been launched to buy time and frustrate Padaca's proclamation. We have sources inside the COMELEC that indeed, a plot to install Dy as Isabela governor has been ordered by no less than Mrs. Gloria Arroyo herself. To ensure its implementation, Abalos had been paid P200 million. Abalos currently oversees Northern Luzon in this year's electoral exercise. GMA promised the Dys that the latter shall regain control of the Isabela Capitol by all means, in exchange for the latter's (dynasty's) loyalty.
