Exclusive: Loren Legarda to announce candidacy by July
April 28, 2009 § 2 Comments
For those who are interested in politics and supporters of Senator Loren Legarda, she’ll announce her candidacy in July 2009.
I had the chance to talk to the good senator during the lunch hosted by NET 25 journalist Arlyn dela Cruz. Legarda visited Arlyn and reminisce the times they spent together seven years ago when the good senator worked for the release of Arlyn from her military captors in Sulu.
Legarda told us that she’s still consulting with her family, her friends, supporters and leaders on her best possible option come 2010. She also disclosed that she’s joining former president Joseph Estrada in his provincial sortie in Bicol. And she also countered perceptions that she has a slim chance of winning the presidency in 2010, since, according to a July 2008 SWS survey shows a 40% voting preference for Legarda-Escudero teamup.
