Aggabao dissuades Colmenares from campaigning in Isabela. Find out why

Oct 1, 2015 @ 2:12

Nationalist Peoples Coalition (NPC) president and House Deputy Speaker Giorgidi Aggabao has thrown his support behind the senatorial bid of Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Neri Colmenares but advised him not to bother campaigning in Isabela next year.

Aggabao, the congressional representative of Isabela’s 4th district, said Colmenares is already assured of victory in the province because it’s an “NPC country.”

“Ang sabi ko kay Cong. Neri, sa listahan ng mga probinsyang papasyalan mo, ihuli mo na ang Isabela. NPC country ‘yan. Di mo na kailangang mangampanya. Panalo ka na,” he told the audience at the Makabayan group’s national convention in Manila Wednesday (Sept. 30).

Colmenares, the Makabayan group’s lone senatorial candidate, will be running under the tandem of Senators Grace Poe and Francis Escudero. He is the first aspirant endorsed by the duo during the convention.

Aggabao said NPC, the second largest political party in the country, also supports Colmenares’ candidacy.
