Villar-de Castro Tandem?
August 27, 2009 § Leave a comment
Sources close to Villar’s and De Castro’s camps are rooting for a Villar-de Castro tandem. If this is true, then, this validates earlier claims that the Villar camp has already agreed to work together with the Lakas-KAMPI CMD or at least, KAMPI CMD. This possibility came out during the time when De Castro and Villar met in the States last June.
The question is—will the Nacionalista coalesce with Lakas-KAMPI? And will De Castro break his earlier pronouncement that he will not run for re-election.
If this is true, then, this will make their coalition as the biggest and the largest electoral machinery for the 2010 elections.
For me, the most ideal running mate for Villar is Legarda, not de Castro, since Legarda could bolster the ratings of Villar in the ABC class and could overturn the gains made by Chiz Escudero who is reported to be gunning the vice presidential post in tandem with Erap.
