SENATOR Cynthia Villar said Tuesday three Nacionalista Party (NP) members, including Senators Antonio Trillanes IV, Ferdinand “Bong-Bong” Marcos Jr., and Allan Peter Cayetano have expressed their intention to run for president in the 2016 elections.
“We will support a presidential candidate after our party mates decide whether to run or not. Three of them have indicated that they want to run. We are waiting for them. If they decide to run, we will support them. If they don't, then we will choose a candidate," she said.
Villar, who was in Bacolod City Tuesday, said the ideal President should be honest and competent.
“I guess we will not get a perfect one because nobody's perfect," she said.
In the 2013 elections, the NP has forged an alliance with the administration's Liberal Party and Villar said that they will still decide if they will continue with the alliance in 2016.
The NP is headed by her husband, former Senator Manuel Villar.(CNC/TDE)
