Albay gov’s jump to LP shocks Arroyo party

Posted by akosistella on April 15, 2010


MANILA, Philippines—Stalwarts of the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD are bewildered by the defection of Albay Gov. Joey Salceda to the camp of Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, and are appealing to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to step in and stop the bleeding.

“I don’t understand,” Lakas-Kampi-CMD secretary general Raymundo Roquero said by phone early Wednesday. “[Salceda] organized the Caucus for Governors. The very basis for their existence is palabra de honor (word of honor). It’s very hard to comprehend.”

Be that as it may, Salceda, who’s running unopposed for reelection, has indeed accepted Aquino’s offer to be the LP regional chair in Bicol. But he has asked to be given “sufficient” time to “make proper notices to [the Lakas Kampi-CMD] leadership, local leaders and Ma’am PGMA.”
