Villar says NP may field
Negros bet for governor
BUT LOCAL ALLIANCES BEING EXPLORED
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Senator Manny Villar, who is eyeing the presidency in 2010, yesterday said the Nacionalista Party could field a gubernatorial candidate and other local bets in Negros Occidental next year.
But Villar, who was in Bacolod as speaker at the joint induction of the Rotary District 3850 governor, club presidents and officers, told the DAILY STAR the NP decision to field candidates will depend on whether it can reach alliances with those already intending to run.
If he gets the support of existing local contenders, then there will be no need for the NP to field more candidates, Villar said..
