NEGROS Occidental Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer said it's too early to talk about the 2028 presidential elections as a lot of things could still happen in five years time.

Ferrer stressed that President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is still in his first year as the country’s top chief executive.

He made the statement amid reports of the political squabbles that are happening at the House of Representatives that led to the demotion of former Senior Deputy Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

She was suspected to be allegedly behind plans to unseat House Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez.

Arroyo denied such rumors.

Meanwhile, Ferrer said members of the United Negros Alliance (UneGa) in the province are free to decide if they want to join the Kilusan Ng Nagkakaisang Pilipino led by Bacolod City Mayor Alfredo Abelardo Benitez.

"That's a movement waiting to be accredited by the Comelec (Commission on Elections) to be a national political party. Having good intentions u see the leadership of Benitez, I'm sure there will be local leaders who will join that," Ferrer said.

He said UneGa is very much intact and that if they want to join KNP, he sees no problem with it.

Ferrer is a member of the National Unity Party (NUP).

"Every election, we forge political alliances," Ferrer said, referring to possible alliance between his party and the KNP.

Political analysts expect more will join KNP especially when it will acquire recognition from Comelec as a national political party.*
