Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. in Good Shape for a Re-election

After the Supreme declared that advertisements of politicians do not constitute a violation of the election code but rather is only part of their right to freedom of expression inherently protected by the constitution, political ads has been everywhere.

And as we only have a few days before celebrating Christmas, some presidentiables and politicians has already posted their Christmas greetings making the rounds on TV stations, radio and some printed ads.

Here is one among the many videos.  That of Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. giving his Christmas greetings.

Aside from this Christmas advertisement of Sen. Revilla, one cannot fail to notice too so many billboards along Aguinaldo Highway in Cavite of his face saying that through him the improvement of the Aguinaldo is underway.

Obviously, Christmas greetings or billboards of road projects, these are political campaigning for May 2010.  A practice long been used to raise the dead memories of politicians on voters’ consciousness as the election day  is getting closer.  We know too well, that previous Christmases has not flashed TV ads of politicians expressing their Christmas greetings to the public.


Right now, Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. is on the second spot on the latest Pulse Asia Survey, having a 52.7 share of public opinion rooting for his rerun on the Senate.  He will surely win the reelection and have a commanding lead among voters compared to his previous election performance.  Such commanding vote will give him more leveraging power and political influence in the Senate I think so.  Such a great move too, for if he decided to run for the vice-presidency under the administration party, no amount of money and political machinery rooting from the local government units would make him win against stronger more popular opponents.
