Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. said he will abide by the decision of the United Negros Alliance, and the last thing he would like to see is trouble within the party.
The UNA is inviting Ambassador Eduardo Cojuangco to its party caucus to be held in about two weeks, where it will announce its candidates for the May 2013 polls, Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said Tuesday.
Cojuangco is the founder of UNA and the Nationalist People’s Coalition.
Alvarez, when asked if he will seek reelection as vice governor, said he will abide by what the party decides.
He said that, from past practices of the party, a consensus is reached on who runs for governor, vice governor and congressmen. The congressmen in turn preside over the decision on who the candidates will be for the towns and cities of their districts.
The vice governor debunked the possibility of an impending break-up of UNA, which is a coalition of officials in Negros Occidental from different national political parties.*CPG
