Local officials continue to play the musical chairs as the period for the filing of the certificates of candidacy approaches.
Manila Vice Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso on Wednesday took his oath as the latest member of Nacionalista Party (NP) under Senator Manuel Villar Jr. despite being the running mate of reelectionist Mayor Alfredo Lim, who’s under the banner of the Liberal Party (LP).
In a press statement, Moreno said his support is with Villar who he said was born poor like him in the slums of Tondo.
“Naniniwala akong si Senator Manny Villar ang nagtataglay ng katangi-tanging kakayanang mamuno, sapagkat alam niya ang pakiramdam ng kumakalam na sikmura ng mga mahihirap nating kababayan bilang nakaahon at nagtagumpay dito,” Moreno said.
(I believe in the leadership of Senator Villar for he knows how it feels to be hungry like many of our poor fellowmen.)
