One can call it a political “brilliancy,” a class act on the part of the former president. All he had to do was to declare he had become “allergic” to the vice president, and that was all. The message has been delivered — GMA has sufficiently demonstrated that she fully supports DU30 in everything he wants to do. The whole nation is required to choose a president, a vice president and senators from a set of candidates whom the voters have only heard of, but know nothing about. In a parliamentary system, the voters just vote for a member of parliament (MP) for their district; then the elected MPs choose the prime minister.
