Posted by akosistella on April 4, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – Quezon City Mayor Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte Jr. will likely be the Liberal Party’s candidate for speaker of the House of Representatives should Liberal Party (LP) presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III emerge as winner in the May 10 elections.

LP president and vice presidential candidate Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II revealed that Belmonte would be the party’s bet for speaker to counter any move to install President Arroyo as House leader if she gets elected as Pampanga representative.

Belmonte is running to represent Quezon City’s fourth congressional district while Mrs. Arroyo is seeking representation of Pampanga’s second congressional district in the May 10 elections.
