Malabon wars: Will PNoy choose cousin or ally in 2016?
The long-time hold of the Oreta dynasty in Malabon City will be challenged by a candidate closley linked to President Benigno Aquino in 2016.
A Politiko source said Malabon Rep. Josephine Lacson-Noel would be running for mayor against Mayor Antolin “Lenlen” Oreta III.
Mayor Lenlen Oreta is the son of former Sen. Tessie Aquino Oreta and contractor Antolin Oreta Jr. The mayor is Aquino’s first cousin.
Noel is married to former An Waray party-list Rep. Florencio “Bem” Noel who lost in his quest to become mayor of Tacloban City in against Alfred Romualdez in 2013.
Bem Noel is currently a director of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.
Will the President choose friendship or blood ties in Malabon? Or will he stay neutral? Abangan.
