Political analyst Prof. Julio Teehankee on the joint presser of presidential candidates Moreno, Lacson, and Gonzales on Sunday: I think it’s a last ditch effort to create a buzz that will energize their respective campaigns but it turned out to be a bust. | @GergCahiles
@GergCahiles Teehankee: Given the nature of our presidential elections, it’s a winner take all contest. So obviously, the finals will be between the first and second placer. At this stage in the game, there’s no room for third, fourth, or even fifth placer. #TheFilipinoVotes | @GergCahiles
