Guv unfazed;
Re-election bid still on


“May the best man win.”

This was the reaction yesterday of Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. to Ambassador Eduardo Cojuangco’s expected endorsement of the gubernatorial bid of Vice Gov. Genaro Alvarez and his runningmate, former San Carlos Mayor Eugenio Jose Lacson.

Cojuangco and top Nationalist People’s Coalition officials are expected at the oathtaking rites of new NPC members in Negros Occidental at L’Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City tomorrow.

The ambassador is expected to meet with the media ahead of the affair to air his position.

Marañon, who is seeking re-election as governor, said he will run under the United Negros Alliance instead of joining a national party.

He pointed out that members of UNA come from various national parties anyway, citing the NPC, Liberal Party and Lakas CMD.

“UNA is a provincial party for the improvement and progress of Negros Occidental,” the governor said.*CPG
