MANILA, Philippines – Amid the defections and betrayals within the ruling party Lakas-Kampi-CMD, more than 130 congressional candidates and incumbent congressmen took time out from their campaign to express and sign a manifesto of support to prove their continued support for the Lakas-Kampi-CMD presidential bet Gilbert Teodoro Jr..
In a meeting among members of the Lakas-Kampi-CMD party at the Dusit Hotel in Makati Monday afternoon, ruling party chair Cong. Amelita Villarosa said that Lakas members will continue to campaign for Teodoro.
She also denied reports that members of the so-called Northern Alliance, a group of legislators from northern Luzon, had already bolted the ruling coalition and is supporting Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Sen. Manny Villar.
