Rep. Leni Robredo belies LP-NP negotiations for common slate in Cam Sur

NAGA CITY—Camarines Sur 3rd District Rep. Leni Robredo belied reports that there is an ongoing negotiation between the Liberal Party (LP) and the Nacionalista Party (NP) in the province of Camarines Sur to present common candidates for the 2016 elections.

Robredo, in her statement to the media during the groundbreaking of the P150-million Jesse M. Robredo Museum yesterday, said that while she confirms that local leaders have been discussing common concerns for the improvement of the province, the issue about political alliances was never raised.

Robredo further expressed that she is not willing to merge with the NP for the purpose of political expediency alone.

She emphasized that transparency, good governance, and Daang Matuwid remain the battlecry of the LP.
Meanwhile, 5th District Rep. Salvio Fortuno earlier revealed on two occasions the possibility of the NP and the LP to name common candidates for the upcoming elections.

The first was during the oathtaking of the new LP members in Manila, which Robredo also attended.

The second was on the oathtaking of the new NP members in Libmanan two weeks ago.

Fortuno, a current member of the LP, was invited to the mass oathtaking of new NP members in Libmanan, having been a former member of the party when he was elected as congressman.

It will be recalled, however, that he decided to jump ship to the LP a few weeks after he was elected.
On both occasions, Fortuno expressed that the two parties could present common candidates, on account of the recent political developments in the province.—by Ron-Ron Enon/BBS-DWLV/BICOLSTANDARD.COM
