MANILA – Senator Richard “Dick” Gordon and former Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Bayani Fernando on Tuesday announced that they will be running mates for the 2010 elections under a new party.
Dubbing themselves the “transformers”, the two filed their certificates of candidacy at the Commission on Elections office in Intramuros, Manila past 2 p.m.
Gordon, who is running for president, said the tandem was formed Monday night after finding out that he and Fernando have similar views on issues.
“Walang tamad sa tambalang ito. Wala rin tanga sa tambalang ito. Hindi kami kapos. We may not have much money but we have enough. Besides we already know what happened to leaders who love money too much,” Gordon told reporters.
