Ending the suspense over the choice of one of the countrys most coveted command votes, the Iglesia Ni Cristo has endorsed Liberal Party standard-bearer Sen. Noynoy Aquino and his running mate Sen. Mar Roxas. The INC can deliver as many as two million votes.

GMA Networks Unang Balita reported the Iglesia Ni Cristo INC local church in Quezon City announced its decision at a liturgical service around 4:45 a.m.

Under its late patriarch Eraño Manalo, the INC was allied with ex-president Ferdinand Marcos in the 1986 snap elections against Aquinos mother, Cory Aquino, who would eventually become president after the fall of Marcos.

The INC has since endorsed the past two winning presidential candidates, Joseph Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Since the elder Manalo died last year, his son Eduardo Manalo has led the secretive, highly disciplined religious group founded by his grandfather Felix in 1914.
