Villar camp revives Noynoy mental health issue
MANILA, Philippines – With only 13 days left before Filipinos choose their next president, a supporter of Nacionalista Party (NP) standard-bearer Manuel Villar Jr. on Tuesday revived the mental health of Liberal Party (LP) presidential bet Benigno Aquino III as an issue in the elections.
At a press conference, former National Power Corp. (NPC) President Guido Delgado distributed copies of alleged 1979 psychiatric reports on Aquino, stressing these were not verified because “it is the media’s role to confirm its veracity.”
The report claims that Aquino, who was then only a 19-year-old student of Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), was found to be “suffering from depression and melancholia,” due partly to his father Ninoy’s incarceration under the martial law regime of Ferdinand Marcos.

MEANWHILE, the scuttlebutt is Delgado is in line to be Sen. Villar’s Energy Secretary if the NP bags the May presidential contest.
