MANILA, May 9 With only four days left before the midterm elections, Nacionalista Party (NP) senatorial candidate Cynthia Villar has personally expressed her appreciation to President Benigno Aquino III and the Liberal Party for adopting the three NP senatorial bets in the ruling coalition Team PNoy.
We would like to thank Liberal Party and Team PNoy for treating us well throughout the 90 days campaign. Thank you Mr. President and Senator Franklin Drilon (campaign manager), Villar said in her speech at the miting de avance of the team of Manila mayoralty candidate Alfredo Lim at the Plaza Hernandez in Tondo.
Aside from Villar, the NP candidates adopted by the Team PNoy include reelectionist Senator Alan Peter Cayetano and Antonio Trillanes IV.
Villar and reelectionist Francis Chiz Escudero were the only Team PNoy candidates present while Bam Aquino, Sonny Angara, Ramon Magsaysay Jr., Aquilino Pimentel Jr., Risa Hontiveros and Trillanes sent proxies in the miting de avance attended by President Aquino.
Aquino appealed to the Manilenos to vote all the Team PNoy senatorial bets who will be his partners creating laws that would benefits more Filipinos while taking the straight path he started three years ago.
These are candidates who will adhere our straight path and will help me in improving the economy of our country, Aquino said to the delight of the big crowd.
In media interview, Villar acknowledge the endorsements of President Aquino not only to her but to the whole Team PNoy.
I would like to thank President Aquino because even we were absent, he became our representatives and he kept on endorsing us, Villar, wife of outgoing Senator Manny Villar, said.
And for that reason, in behalf of the Nacionalista Party, I personally expressed my gratitude and we want him know that we really appreciate all the help he has done for us throughout the 90-day campaign, she added.
Villar said she and Trillanes will attend the Team PNoys final miting de avance set to be held on Friday at the Amorato Stadium in Quezon City.
Definitely, me and senator Trillanes will be present. I still have to convince Senator Cayetano to attend, Villar said.
Mayor Lim missed the name of Villar when he introduced the 12 senatorial bets of Team PNoy but when somebody approached and reminded him, the reelectionist Manila mayor made up for it.
She is not from Tondo, but her heart was captured by a former Senate President Manny Villar who was born and grew up here in Tondo. Our future senator Cynthia Villar, Lim told the crowd.
In front of the Tondo voters, Villar promised to return to her husband's place to fulfill her promise to build livelihood projects in Tondo.
The Team PNoy bets who were no show in the Manila miting de avance include Loren Legarda, Grace Poe, Jamby Madrigal and Cayetano. (PNA)
