Several local officials leaders of Bulacan have left the Liberal Party (LP) to support the vice presidential bid of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Members of the former local ticket of the LP in Marilao, Bulacan led by re-electionist Mayor Tito Santiago, for one, are running for various positions as independent candidates.
On Friday, they welcomed Marcos at the Municipal Hall.
Candidate for councilor Mark Guillermo confirmed that they left the LP but he did not elaborate on their motivations for doing so.
He said that Marcos will have no problem in the town as far as the senator’s candidacy is
“We were with LP before. There is no problem with BBM (Marcos) with us because we have thrown our full support to his candidacy,” Guillermo said.
In his two-day sortie in Bulacan, Marcos brought his so-called Unity Caravan to the towns of Pulilan, Malolos, Calumpit, Plaridel, Baliuag, Bustos, Pandi, Angat, Norzaragay, Marilao, Meycauayan, Malolos and San Jose del Monte.
In Barangay Kaypian, San Jose del Monte, Marcos called on some of the 1,000 residents who attended a forum organized by Filipino Bayan at Ako Movement and congressional candidate Rida Robes to join his crusade for national unity.
