SPEAKER Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is also endorsing the candidacy of Rafael Alunan.
She announced this yesterday in an interview on the sidelines of the signing of a memorandum of understanding for the relocation of informal settlers in Tondo, Manila.
Speaker Arroyo said she will accompany Alunan in his campaign sortie in Pampanga today.
“I’m bringing one of the PDP candidates to Pampanga -- Raffy Alunan, the newest addition,” Speaker Arroyo said.
Just recently, Alunan was included in the line-up of the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino–Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) as the personal choice of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Alunan is the Secretary of Interior and Local Government during the time of President Fidel Ramos and Secretary of Tourism during the time of President Corazon Aquino.
Earlier, Speaker Arroyo endorsed in Pampanga four candidates of Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates Cynthia Villar Francis Tolentino, Bong Go and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.
Speaker Arroyo said she doesn’t mind endorsing Hugpong ng Pagbabago candidates even though her party is PDP-Laban.
In fact, Speaker Arroyo said in her speech yesterday, that she wanted Villar to be the number one senator in the May elections.
HNP founder Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte also said Villar is the top bet of the team.
