Political Merger

One of the highlights in the political scene in the country was the merger of giant political parties in preparation for the May 2010 presidential election. The merger will face head on the opposition which is most likely to be led by former president Mr. Erap Estrada. Erap was removed from office and was charged with plunder but was acquitted later.

I don't know if the merger will help the candidates of the united ruling party after Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo suffered low popularity ratings in social surveys. Compare that to the charisma of Erap before the people.

Well, that remains to be seen. By the way, TRAPO (trapo in our language is dirty rag) comes from "traditional politicians"
