MANILA, Aug. 20 —Deputy Presidential Spokesman Anthony Golez confirmed that he plans to run for a congressional seat under the Nationalist People's Coalition (NPC) party in the lone district of Bacolod City in 2010 elections.

Golez told a media briefing at Malacanang on Thursday that he took his oath of membership to NPC two weeks ago and he saw nothing wrong in joining NPC since it was also with the coalition of the administration.

He said he joined the NPC because of the "climate in the local politics" in his district in Bacolod City.

If ever his plan push through, Golez will challenge incumbent Bacolod City Rep. Monico Puentevella, who is the district chairman of the Lakas-kampi-CMD.

Tourism Secretary Ace Durano and Education Secretary Jesli Lapus both belong to the NPC while Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro, who is a former NPC member and announced his plan to run for president in 2010 elections, has joined the Lakas-Kampi-CMD.(PNA)
