Pangasinan politiko to resign from NPC to support Binay

Apr 22, 2016 @ 15:01

A politiko from Pangasinan said that he would resign from the Nationalist Peoples Coalition out of delicadeza to openly support Jojo Binay’s presidential run.

A Politiko source said that Pangasinan 1st District Rep. Jesus ‘Boying’ Celeste was just waiting for the proper timing for his declaration of support.

“May commitment na si Cong. Boying kay Binay, timing na lang. Hindi maganda na may kandidato ang NPC for president pero iba naman ang isisigaw ni Cong. Boying,” the politiko source said.

At the local level, Rep. Celeste will continue to support the candidacy for governor of Mark Cojuangco of NPC.

The source added that the resignation was a personal decision of Rep. Celeste and does not mean that the other Celeste politikos would do the same.

Rep. Boying’s brothers are Alaminos city mayor Arthur and Bolinao mayor Arnold running under NPC.

Asked if Cojuangco should also resign or take a leave of absence from NPC, our source said that it was up to Cojuangco.

Pangasinan’s 1st congressional district with a total voting population of 243,270 includes Alaminos City, Bolinao, Anda, Sual, Mabini, Burgos, Dasol, Infanta, Bani, and Agno.
