Stick to one! Erin Tañada reveals what made him stay with Liberal Party

Nov 12, 2018 @ 18:40

Senatorial candidate Erin Tañada said he chose to remain with the Liberal Party (LP) out of principle.

The Quezon politiko revealed that in 2013, he was offered to run under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) of the Binays.

But Tañada said he wants to show voters that they should be selecting their leaders not based on personalities but on principle.

“Some friends were saying, if you want a chance to win, why not leave the LP and join another party? But out of principle and out of my advocacy for political party reform, I felt that it would be in the tradition of being a Tañada to stick to one party,” he said.

“I believe political parties still have a future in our country. And I want that hopefully in our generation we do not look, not necessarily on personalities, but what the party stands for and that’s why I still stay with the LP because of what it stood for during Martial Law and after Martial Law,” Tañada added.
