REF: JOEY SALGADO
Makati Mayor and United Opposition (UNO) president Jejomar C. Binay today said the opposition welcomes the decision of Pampanga Gov. Ed Panlilio to run for president in the 2010 election.
“The decision of Gov. Panlilio shows that there are many Filipinos willing to offer themselves as alternatives to Mrs. Arroyo. It is a welcome development,” he said.
“We should be willing to offer our vision and our experience to the people. We should be willing to engage the people in dialogs so they can make an informed choice,” he added.
The former priest turned Pampanga governor announced his presidential bid Tuesday in a Church media forum.
