Who will Mayor Escalante support for president?
Cadiz City Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr. is torn between supporting former Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Vice President Leni Robredo for President in the 2022 elections.
This after two PDP-Laban presidential aspirants Senators Bong Go and Ronald dela Rosa withdrew their candidacies for the country’s top post.
Majority of mayors in Negros Occidental, including those affiliated with United Negros Alliance (UNegA), where Escalante is presently its secretary general, and Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer have signified their support to Marcos. (https://bit.ly/3GmposN)
Members of the UNegA, a Negros-based political party, have been given a free hand to choose whom they will support in the presidential race.
On one hand, the Marañon clan in Sagay City is supporting Robredo “as she is their personal friend,” revealed Escalante.
The mayor also said his family also expressed their support to the Vice President.
