"Astig sya": Jiggy Manicad idolizes Sara for punching sheriff



One of the senatorial aspirants in this mid term election is veteran journalist Jiggy Manicad.
Manicad is connected with Hugpong ng Pagbabago of Davao city Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio because the former idolizes the brand of leadership the younger Duterte have.

An event is recalled when the Lady mayor punched a court sheriff for disobeying a direct order during a demolition in  Agdao district , Davao City in 2011.
"Naniniwala ako kay Mayor Sara (Duterte), 'yung brand of leadership niya. Astig siya, ginulpi niya 'yung sheriff. Ganun talaga ang gusto ng tao. Immediate action pag nagigipit sila," Manicad told Ms. Karen Davila when he guested in ANC's Headstart. 
The act of the mayor resulted to her 1 month suspension by the Ombudsman and was also slapped with 2 disbarment cases.
In the interview, Manicad described how he approached the younger Duterte instead of the President on asking if he could be considered a slot in Hugpong Pagbabago. He chose Mayor Sara over President because the “political campaign is like a war.”
The 13-member Hugpong slate is composed of Senate reelectionists and returnees Sonny Angara, Pia Cayetano, JV Ejercito, Jinggoy Estrada, Koko Pimentel, Bong Revilla and Cynthia Villar. New names in the lineup are former Philippine National Police director Ronald dela Rosa, former Special Assistant to the President Bong Go, Rep. Zajid Mangudadatu (Maguindanao), former reporter Jiggy Manicad and former MMDA chair Francis Tolentino.
