Sen. Escudero believes UniTeam is over
by Ellicia Del Mundo29 January 2024

Senator Francis 'Chiz' Escudero believes that the UniTeam, an alliance between the Marcoses and the Dutertes, is over.

Interviewed during DZRH Dos Por Dos on Monday, January 29, Escudero said the unity of President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. and Vice President Sara Duterte's camps crumbled by about 98 percent.

"Ilang punto ang maliwanag. Natuldukan na ang Uniteam, wala nang pagkakaisa sa pagitan ng Duterte at Marcos. Dahil nandoon si VP Sara Duterte, nagulat man din siya sa mga binitiwang salita ng kanyang ama, nandoon pa rin siya at hindi kinontra o pinagtanggol ang Pangulo [....] Mga 98% [ang pagtatapos ng Uniteam]," he said.

The Senator made the statement as a reaction after former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte's accused Marcos as a "drug addict" and called him "bangag" or high on drugs during his speech in the candlelighting prayer rally held in Davao City.

For Escudero, Marcos needs to directly answer the former president's accusation with the help of his spokesperson.

"Para sa akin, oo pero hindi man niya, yung mga tagapagsalita niya dahil mabigat ang akusasyong binitiwan ni Pangulong Duterte. Maganda rin mahiling ang basehan no'n para hindi manatiling paratang lamang," he said.

The Senator, however, noted that there is a two percent chance that the UniTeam is still hanging since Vice President Sara Duterte had showed up at the "Bagong Pilipinas" kick-off in Quirino Grandstand in Manila on Sunday, January 29.

UniTeam alliance was formed in support of Marcos and Duterte's candidacies during the National and Local Elections in 2022. It is composed of top officials from four parties — Partido Federal ng Pilipinas, Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats, Hugpong ng Pagbabago, and Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino.
