Four on ‘Team Patay’
senate race winners

BY CARLA GOMEZ

In fact, the four – Juan Edgardo Angara, Alan Peter Cayetano, Francis Joseph Escudero and Maria Regina Legarda – were among the top six winners proclaimed by the Commission on Elections at the Philippine International Convention Center yesterday.

The Diocese tagged the four as being members of the Team Patay for voting for the passage of the Reproductive Health Law, which it is opposing.

In Bacolod City, aside from Angara, Cayetano, Escudero and Legarda, Risa Hontiveros of Team Patay also made it to the top 12 senators with the most number of votes.
