SAN FERNANDO, Philippines – Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III invaded on Wednesday the bailiwick of his political nemesis, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, to court the Kapampangan vote.

Panlilio is appealing a Comelec decision declaring his opponent, Lilia ‘Baby’ Pineda, the winner in the 2007 elections.
The Liberal Party is fielding only 13 mayoralty candidates out of the 22 towns in the province. It has the backing of only one incumbent, San Fernando Mayor Oca Rodriguez
