TARLAC CITY—Apparent President-elect Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said that he would pursue justice for a murdered friend and chief of staff of a Liberal Party leader who was gunned down by policemen in a Cavite town on Election Day.

Aquino, together with his running mate Sen. Manuel Araneta “Mar” Roxas II, went to Enriquez Funeral Chapel in this city at 11 a.m. to condole with relatives and friends of retired Col. Arnulfo Obillos, the chief of staff of former Congressman Plaridel Abaya.

Obillos, a resident of this province, along with another Abaya bodyguard, Sgt. Juanito Paraiso, were killed when police in Bacoor, Cavite, opened fire at them as they accompanied Abaya to the town police station to complain about alleged harassment of Abaya supporters.

Noynoy open to LP-NP House alliance vs GMA

MANILA, Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said yesterday he is open to an alliance with the Nacionalista Party (NP) of rival Sen. Manuel Villar Jr. in the House of Representatives for as “long as it would be for the good of the nation.”

Outgoing Quezon City Mayor Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte Jr. also said that an alliance between the two parties is “possible” to be able to come up with a majority to support his bid for speaker of the House of Representatives.

Belmonte is expected to be pitted against President Arroyo in the battle for the speaker’s post. Malacañang said the President has an “advantage” in the contest.
