Escudero quits NPC,
BUT HE'S NO GREAT LOSS,
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Nationalist People's Coalition leaders in Negros said they were surprised at the announcement of Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero yesterday of his resignation from the NPC, while asking for more time to decide on his plans for the 2010 polls, but added that they would remain loyal to their party.
Senator Loren Legarda, in a hastily called press conference, said she would remain the vice presidential candidate of the NPC.
“I don't consider Escudero's leaving a great loss to the NPC, there are many others in the party who feel the same and do not believe in him,” Rep. Genaro Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6th District), said.
