Will Rep. Castro join Liberal Party?


The Liberal Party (LP) will accept Capiz Rep. Fredenil Castro (2nd district) with wide open arms should he join the party.

This, after Castro resigned as president of the National Unity Party (NUP).

Rep. Emmanuel Billones Sr. (1st district) said Castro would be an asset to LP should he join the group.

“Its lucky for a political party once Castro will join because of his intelligence and stand,” Billones added.

Castro resigned as NUP president, citing “pure and simple delicadeza” after he supported the House speakership bid of Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez.

“I feel that I could no longer be effective as president of the party and as member of the party if I remain there because I took the opposite direction during the speakership race,” he said.
