“We are working on a party teamwork as a partnership with the LP. We have informed our supporters for this event,” Leonardia said. “We have friends in the UNA. But we are guided by the party teamwork in line with the partnership and coalition of LP and NPC.”
Earlier on Saturday, Senator Franklin Drilon announced that Leonardia, Sayson and their vice mayoralty bet Greg Gasataya are the official candidates of the LP-NPC Coalition in Bacolod City. Rumor has it that President Benigno Aquino III might not visit Bacolod City during his visit to the Visayas. Moreover, spokespersons for the Liberal Party and the Nationalist People’s Coalition have completely dejected the reports about any misunderstandings between the two parties.
“The party is steadfast in working towards the electoral success of the coalition candidates. The NPC will continue to support the President and his reform agenda till his last day in office,” Valenzuela Rep. Rex Gatchalian, NPC spokesperson said.
