The Liberal Party (LP) welcomed the possible entry of former Sen. Panfilo Lacson into the 2016 presidential derby.

Representatives Ben Evardone of Eastern Samar and Edgar Erice of Caloocan City of the ruling Liberal Party (LP) sees Lacson’s planned foray as a positive development. The party has yet to decide if it will field Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas as its standard bearer in 2016.

“The more the merrier. We should also welcome the entry of (Davao Mayor Rodrigo) Duterte. This will give people wider choices. I’m sure the people will pick the best for the country,” Evardone said.

Lacson, an ally of President Benigno Aquino 3rd, earlier bared his intention to run for president next year. Lacson briefly served as the Head of the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery which was tasked to monitor the implementation of repair and rehabilitation efforts for the victims of typhoon Yolanda in November 2013.

Duterte, who is being urged to run for president in next year’s polls, had repeatedly said that he has no plans to seek the country’s highest post.

Erice said Lacson’s possible presidential bid is no threat to Roxas.

“As far as we are concerned, there can be no other best candidate who will be able to continue the reforms and the economic upsurge of this country except for Secretary Roxas. He has integrity, competence and experience,” he said.

  1. Government should fast track pending cases against politicians who intend to run for public office especially those with graft and corruption cases like plunder. They don’t deserve to be given a chance to run for office anyway. This is one way to ensure that the Filipino voters will have a good civil servant. Do away with the “Aguinaldo Doctrine”…

  2. The Roxas/Lacson tandem is the team to lead the country after 2016. Roxas has the brain and Lacson has the guts. Both have irrefutable honesty and intgegrity.

  3. Talaga itong si EPAL Erice. Naramdaman nya siguro na tagilid yung bossing nyang si Mar Rexas kumabig pa kabila kay lacson na ngayon. Style nito laging ganoon. kakampi sayo pag malakas ka. tapos iiwanan ka sa ere pag laos kana. Ganyan yan sa Caloocan. una kumampi kay Asistio, then Malonzo,then Echeverri, ang lahat ng mga nga ito kinalaban nya tapos nyang pakinabangan. Ang tawag dyan ng tiga Caloocan Mr. Patay kahit saang patay nandoon nangangampanya. Iyung Mining co. nya sinisira yung natural resources ng ating bansa di mapigilan ng goverment naito dahil kakampi. EPAL ERICE yung Caloocan dati no. 2 sa Metro Manila ngayon nasa huli na. ilan taon kana bang elected official ng Caloocan, Councilor(3 term), congressman(2 term), vice mayor (2term). bukod payung pagiging kabataang barangay mo 10 years yata. tiagilan mo na yan Mr. BUKbuk. yung mga kalte sa Dist.2 puro sira sira kagaya ng mukha mong bukbukin. pakiayos naman.

  5. Lacson, Duterte, Roxas, Poe and Escudero symbolize integrity, honesty and dedicated public service. Pnoy has started a new path and we should not go back to our traditional politics of massive corruption and deception.
