It's free for all for UNA
on nat'l bets: Marañon

Since the United Negros Alliance is a provincial party, its members are free to choose whom to support for president and other national positions in the 2010 elections, UNA president Sagay Mayor Alfredo Marañon said yesterday.

Marañon, who is UNA's gubernatorial candidate, said the members of the alliance will stay united and will support the UNA provincial slate.

But since they also belong to various political parties like the Lakas-Kampi-CMD, Nationalist People's Coalition and Liberal Party, they are free to support whomever they want for president and other national positions. moremoremore
