Danding to back NPC bet
even if 2 nephews running

TALISAY CITY – Business tycoon Eduardo Cojuangco, Nationalist People's Coalition founder who has two nephews running for president in 2010 under different political parties, Saturday said one of them does not need the NPC and the other he wishes luck.

But Cojuangco said even if his nephews Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD and Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino of the Liberal Party are running for president, as founder of the NPC, he will support his party.

“The NPC has not put up anybody yet, we will wait. I suppose they will. I am no longer active, it's the younger ones that are deciding for the party,” Cojuangco said. moremoremore
