Diary of Salvador H. Laurel

June 23, 1985

Just arrived from Tokyo-US trip. Opposition in US strong and organized. But they are skeptical about my chances of beating Marcos. They know that the people will vote for me but the votes will not be counted. But they will do what they can.

Solarz, Cranston, Kennedy, Kerry (Democrats) are very sympathetic to UNIDO.

Will meet with UNIDO MPs to map out anti-fraud strategy.

The Liberal Party leaders are not too active. Will meet with Macapagal and Salonga. Could it be because Eva Kalaw is too openly identified with me? She is claiming leadership of LP.
