NUP not coalescing with LP in Capiz – Rep. Castro

0

Rep. Ferdenil Castro (2nd District) clarified there was no coalition between the National Unity Party (NUP) and the Liberal Party in Capiz.

Castro was referring to the reported coalition talks that NUP agreed to support LP candidates, particularly Governor Antonio del Rosario, who is running for re-election in the 2019 midterm elections.

“This statement was made to erase the misconception and malicious insinuation that an alliance was forged for the unity of the political leaders in Capiz,” the politiko said in The Daily Guardian report.

Castro is running for another term of office.

Del Rosario’s bid for governor’s post, on one hand, is being challenged by Vice Governor Esteban Evan “Nonoy” Contreras.
