Will they stay united or
opt for 2013 battle?

No early compromise has been reached on the choice of who will run for governor of Negros Occidental under the United Negros Alliance in 2013, and the decision will be made at a crucial meeting of top leaders of the province at the Edsa Shangri-La in Manila at 11 a.m. today.

Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. has announced that he is seeking re-election, but Alvarez who was his partner in the 2010 polls has said he is the choice of the Nationalist People’s Coalition for the post.

“I am not aware that a compromise has been reached, if there was a compromise there would be no need for the meeting,” the vice governor said.moremoremore
