"Epal" is a derisive Filipino term for politicians who shamelessly put their names and faces on government vehicles (such as this bus parked inside a city councilor's private property and used only by his supporters) and billboards trumpeting public work projects such as roads, bridges and government buildings. This is a blatant indirect form of premature campaigning for the next election using public tax-payer funds.
