Local NPC to
support LP, UNA bets
Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2nd District) yesterday said he and his affiliate political candidates in the province will support several senatorial candidates from the coalition lineups of the Liberal Party and the United Nationalist Alliance for the May 13 elections.
Arnaiz (Nationalist People’s Coalition) said he will discuss whom to support for senator with gubernatorial candidate Margarito Teves, 3rd District Rep. Henry Pryde Teves (Lakas-CMD), the mayors and other political candidates in their alliance ticket.
“There are candidates in the Liberal Party-led coalition that we have to support”, he said, citing Loren Legarda, Jack Enrile, former NPC president Ernesto Maceda, and Francis Escudero. From the UNA, those to be considered are Jose Victor Ejercito and Gregorio Honasan, Arnaiz said.
