NPC’s withdrawal of
support to Ferrer strengthens UNA
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that the withdrawal of the nomination of Rep. Jeffrey Ferrer by the Nationalist People’s Coalition as its official congressional candidate in the fourth district of Negros Occidental in the 2013 elections, will strengthen the United Negros Alliance.
The withdrawal by the NPC of the CONA (Certificate of Nomination and Acceptance) issued to Ferrer reportedly stemmed from his support to the re-election bid of Marañon, instead of Vice-Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr., who is the party gubernatorial bet in the election next year.
Aside from being a former NPC member, Ferrer also has a local party, United Negros Alliance, from whom he had also had a CONA signed by Marañon, its chairman, who also used to be the NPC provincial chairman.
