Joseph Estrada Leads Party on Strictly Politics‘ Miting de Avance Series

Once again, hard-hitting broadcast journalist Pia Hontiveros brings together a whole slate in her acclaimed weekly political talk show “Strictly Politics,” to give television viewers a broader look at the platforms and agenda of the country’s political parties heading to the May 10 national elections.

This Tuesday (April 20) at 7pm, former president Joseph Estrada and erstwhile Makati City mayor Jejomar Binay will lead the Partido ng Masang Pilipino in another “Miting-de-avance” episode of “Strictly Politics,” which airs on ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel (SkyCable ch. 27).

Sen. Manuel Villar’s Nacionalista Party and Sen. Noynoy Aquino’s Liberal Party were also invited to have their turn in the show’s “Miting-de-avance” series on April 27 and May 4, respectively.

Hontiveros, who is one of the country’s most respected anchors, began featuring full slates of candidates in “Strictly Politics” six years ago for the 2004 Philippine national elections. She said with a miting-de-avance format, viewers will get a different look at the candidates as they get to see them interact with their supporters and hear them get into the details of their platforms.

“We are all bombarded by political ads with messages captured only in 30 seconds or less. ‘Strictly Politics’ gives the candidates an avenue to expound on their plans and more time to engage the people in a political discourse,” she said.

Previous guests in the award-winning program were Jamby Madrigal (Genuine Opposition), JC Delos Reyes (Ang Kapatiran), Bro. Eddie Villanueva (Bangon Pilipinas), and Sen. Richard Gordon (Bagumbayan). Invited last week but eventually declined due to a conflict in schedule was the Lakas-Kampi-CMD slate led by standard bearer Gilbert Teodoro Jr.
