El Shaddai to endorse Villar, Pimentel, Trillanes-A A +A
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
ROXAS CITY, CAPIZ -- Religious group El Shaddai will endorse Team PNoy's Cynthia Villar and reelectionist Senators Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III and Antonio Trillanes IV, an administration candidate said Wednesday.
In an interview with reporters, Villar said the El Shaddai leader Bro. Mike Velarda will also endorse three senatorial candidates of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).
"This is not only about the support of El Shaddai, it's the support of the parishes of the Catholic Church," Villar noted.
"If the Catholic can deliver votes, alam mo naman tayo we are a predominantly Catholic country so seguro malaki. Alam niyo naman kaming mga kandidato, any form of support whether malaki or maliit, welcome sa amin," she added.
El Shaddai along with other Catholic groups earlier launched the White Vote Movement, which aims to tap Catholic families to vote as a bloc in favor of pro-life senatorial candidates.
The White Vote Movement said it can deliver six million votes for the pro-church candidates who could help battle possible legislation to legalize same-sex marriage, divorce and abortion. (Kathrina Alvarez/Sunnex)
