Villanueva made the clarification following speculations that he will bolt the Liberal Party (LP) because he was seen joining an NPC meeting with Senators Grace Poe and Francis Escudero last week.

The NPC is headed by businessman Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco Jr., uncle of President Benigno Aquino 3rd.

“I still head Cibac (Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption) party-list as Chairman/President and its normal to coalesce. I am grateful and humbled by their gesture of support to my advocacy in Tesda…[but there is]no final decision for me to run [for Senate in 2016],” Villanueva said in a text message.

“I go to NPC events because I am also close to their members. They invited me, and the NPC raising my hand is a welcome development should I go for it this 2016 elections,” he added.

Villanueva’s brother-in-law, House Deputy Majority Leader Sherwin Tugna of Cibac party-list, believes that the Tesda chief will not join another political party.

“It is early to tell what party Secretary Villanueva will join because I believe he has so much debt of gratitude to the President who gave him a break and allowed him to continue serving the public. More important, Secretary Villanueva’s friendship with the President transcends politics,” Tugna said.

“He respects the President so much,” he added.

The president has heaped lavish praises for Villanueva because of his accomplishments at Tesda, particularly his programs aiming to provide more employment opportunities.

The skills training agency observes its 21st anniversary today.

  1. Basta ako susuportahan ko si Sec. Joel Villanueva. Alam kong malinis ang hangarin nya at kailangan natin ng ganyang tao sa senado isang taong may takot sa Diyos at may pagmamahal sa bayan.

  2. Wag naman po tayong nanghuhusga ng tao kung di naman natin sila kilala ng todo at kung hindi naman natin alam ang mga ginagawa nila. At kung wala rin naman tayong maitutulong upang maiangat ang ekonomiya ng Pilipinas manahimik na lang tayo. Bigyan naman natin ng daan si Sec. Villanueva para asikasuhin ito, hindi puro husga agad.

    btw. wag tayong mandamay ng relihiyon dito, iba ang RELIHIYON sa POLITIKA.

  3. sec.joel deserves a senate seat in the liberal party because his advocacies are in lign with that of PNOY’s “daang matuwid.” He is much better than the other cabinet members because he proved it right with his great accomplishments in TESDA.

  15. Sana nga tumakbo si Sec Joel for senate! At kung tumakbo man, iboboto ko sya. Yung botong, confident ako na magagampanan niya role niya. Kitang kita naman kung gaano nabless ng Lord ang Tesda dahil sa lingkod niyang si Sec Joel :D Besides, nakakasawa din bumoto na you’re just choosing which one is the lesser evil.

    So Go Sec Joel! Ikaw ang botong, kampante ako! Na I am choosing the right person for the position talaga :D

  18. Sec. Joel is truly a role model for everyone–a faithful public servant who works with excellence but remains humble no matter what. Nakakatuwa lang talaga na sobra ang respect niya sa President. Kaya naman binebless talaga siya ni Lord! It is clear that God is with him. Go Sec. Joel! If God is for you who can be against you? Go go go na sa 2016. :)

    si Joel Villanueva ay isang taong mapagkakatiwalaan at nannwala km na tama ang kanyang desisyon kung bkt di sya nag join sa NPC.

  23. allana shane dayao on

    si Joel Villanueva ay isang taong mapagkakatiwalaan at naniniwala kami na tama ang dahilan nya kung bakt hindi sya nag join sa NPC

  24. Marami nang nagagawa si Sec. Joel Villanueva ngayon pa lamang na nasa TESDA pa lang sya. Mas marami pa siyang magagawa pag siya ay magiging Senador. Kaya kahit saang partido solid ang boto ko kay Sec. Joel lang.. =D

  25. allana shane dayao on

    si Joel villanueva ay isang taong mapagkakatiwalaan at naniniwala kmi na anuman ang desisyon nya kung bkt di sya nag join sa NPC ay tama.

  26. Kahit saang partido si Sec.joel villanueva mag join naniniwala ako na hindi mawawala yung integrity at prinsipyo nya sa buhay.

  27. Kahit anong sabihin nyo or kung ano pang mga negative na mga sinasabi nyo naniniwala parin kami kay Sec. Joel dahil mabuti syang tao,at kahit saan man sya papanig sa politica alam namin na tama ang mga decision niya at gusto niya lang makatulog sa mga pilipino.

  28. Andaming haters ni Villanueva, mga wala namang alam kung ano mga nangyayari. Parte ng populasyon ng Pilipinas na naniniwala sa sabi sabi o sila mismo gumagawa ng mga sabi sabi.
    Bago niyo sabihin na kurakot siya, alamin niyo muna ang sinabi ng nbi, na peke pirma sa mga papeles sa pdaf.
    Go Sir Joel, marami po kaming mga natulungan niyo! Sa inyo po ang suporta namin! Go! Fight! Win! Viva!

  29. I know that wherever Sec Joel wishes to go, he will always stand by his principles.Go sec, we’re here to support you!

  30. Elvie Bautista on

    Sec Joel Villanueva kahit saan pong partido sa inyo ang suporta namin. Solidong boto para po sa matapat na lingkod ng bayan. Go go go for Senator 2016..

  31. para skin deserve na tumakbo bilang senador si sec joel villanueva .bkt kc hindi dahil sa marami na syang napatunayan but because alam ko na madami pa syang magagawa at maitutulong na maganda sa ating bansa .hndi ako naniniwala na kasali si sec joel villanueva sa anumang issue na yun it maybe sinisiraan lng sya ng ilan ryt? cguro dhil alm nila na isang responsible and workaholic sa trabaho si sec joel kaya plss lng wag nting i jugde ang isang tao lalu nat di pa ntin sya gnun kakilala .go SEC JOEL VILLANUEVA for senator ….

  32. I am grateful to know if secretary joel Villanueva will run for senator this coming election. He will definitely do an impact to our government. As far as I know, he made TESDA a good government agency for those who are out-of-school youth and that aims to give them a better future, and he actually proved it, not just him but also those who are successful now to which ones a product of tesda. He is a man that keeps his promises applied and worked for worth of others :) Without further a do, give me a senator that will not just give hopes and ideals but a senator for reality, a better and good future and a great change for philippines.

  33. Grabe mga tao ngyon . iilang taon lng sya umupo sa Tesda! Pero nging ISO certified na lahat. Which mean andaming oppurtunity na trabaho sa ibang bansa. Na ISO certified na companies

    Ndi nga siya ung umaalis
    Ng bansa . Siya ung pinupuntahan ng mga nakikipag partnership sakanya . Dahil gusto nilang kumuha sa tesda graduates.

    Boboto ko si Sec. Ngyon lng ako nakakita ng gantong klaseng Gov. Official.

  34. Ang dali-dali mo nman manghusga na kurakot sya ng pdaf, ssbhin mo pa peke at sipsip syaa. Pls po pkita mo nga ebidensya mo. Eh khit mga ebidensya ng kinauukulan hindi tumutugma sa pinaparatang sa knya ihhh sino k p kya?!

    Bat kya ganon kung sino pa nagmamalaskit sa bayan sya pa ang nhuhusgahan?? Bayaan mo cla sec. Joel Villanueva. Duty mo po ay ang Bayan. Go for what is right. Mgssawa dn yang mga yan

  35. Haha OA nyo bagay lang na tumakbo siya na Senator ng maiba naman habang buhay ng corrupt ang Pilipinas para may mabago naman . Sayo boto ko Villanueva,,,,,

  36. I believe that Joel Villanueva is a good leader. Siya ay tumatayo sa katotohanan at hindi sa katiwalian. Isang magandang halimbawa ang pamumuno nya sa TESDA.

  37. Pursue peace. Mamamayan dapat nagtutulungan. Si Sec. Joel ang isang halimbawa nun. Napakaraming tao ang natulungan niya sa mga skills at pati na rin makakilala sa Panginoon. Naiinggit lang siguro kayo hano?

  38. Mr. Villanueva will be better off without any of these party-lists. Ang taong naglilingkod ng tapat siguradong tapat parin khit saang party-list sya mapunta. #JoelVillanuevaSenator2016

  39. Whatever you’re saying is not valid because you don’t have any definitive proof for your accusations, and mind you ah, spelling mo lang ng PDAF mali na so pano mo pa mapoprove yang sinsabi mo! HAHAHAHA

  40. Villanueva has a good reputation, many corrupt people will throw mud upon him but the truth will alwayd remain. If joel will run for senator, count our votes! Thank you TesdaMan

  41. Junior. Gaano ka kasigurado na kinurakot ni Joel Villanueva ang PDAF? DI ba nga naging Congressman siya ng Citizens Battle against corruption?! Paanong nung naging congressman siya na lumalaban sa corruption ay maging corrupt din? hah!? Paki explain?! Lab yu!

  42. kasi nga madami talagang willing sumoporta kay Villnueva. e kasi nga matapat siya sa trabaho niya.

    Villanueva for senator!

  43. The PEKE animal wants to be senator? What a joked, this lick abnoy ass has dreams. You will go down with your corrupt vindictive president. Enjoy Tesda whilst you can. If GMA was PEKE? What say you now SIPSIP.

    • PEKE?! SIPSIP?! ‘pag nagtatrabaho at nakakatulong sa bayan PEKE at SIPSIP agad? competent at napaka-excellent ni Joel Villanueva at nararapat lang na makasama siya sa pag-tutuloy ng tuwid na daan. kahit saan namang partido competent siyang manalo.

    • This is non-sense! He is not what you think he is! He is very reliable and sincere in what he is doing. whatever you’re saying is just pure mockery and false accusations. He is much more competent than those people out there. He’s not a less evil leader, he is a righteous leader

    • Well,may mga tao talagang maraming naiinggit kay Sec. Joel. Buksan ang ating kaisipan, umalis tayo sa dati nating kinaroroonan. Masama bang gumawa ng mabuti? Diba hindi. Masama rin bang tumulong sa kapwa Pilipino na nangangailangan ng trabaho. Inuumisahan na nga ang pagbabago, kontra ng kontra ang mamamayan. Ang taong negatibo ang kaisipan, walang mapapala sa buhay.

    • @BUTCH Haters gonna Hate. wag kang bitter kay villanueva, mas gugustuhin ko ng si Villanueva manalo kaysa kay binay. puro paratang lang kayo kay sec joel, wala kyong solid evidence.

      btw why so conyo?

  44. Joel Villanueva, you have nothing to worry. You have done well on your job at TESDA to increase the number of Filipinos who are skilled technicians and employable both domestic and overseas. God is on the side of people who believe Him and does His will. Sticking to LP is the right choice.

    • Ulol kurakot yan ng pdap ginamit lang pamilya. Nisan ang buwisit na JIL mga manloloko

    • Whatever you’re saying is not valid because you don’t have any definitive proof for your accusations, and mind you ah, spelling mo lang ng PDAF mali na so pano mo pa mapoprove yang sinsabi mo! HAHAHAHA
