not breakup of UNA - Albee

Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) said yesterday.

At a press conference at the Bacolod Pavillon Resort Hotel, Benitez, however, refused to say if he will support Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. or Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. for UNA gubernatorial bet.

“The proper announcement will be done once we’ve officially convened to select the candidate for the governorship,” he said.moremoremore
