TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Philippines—The United Nationalist Alliance indicated Wednesday it may drop Senator Francis Escudero, who snubbed the party’s proclamation rally in Cebu on Tuesday, from its senatorial lineup if he continues to stay away from UNA political sorties.

“Sa malamang (It is likely),” Binay told reporters here Wednesday when asked if it was possible that UNA would remove from its roster the common candidates who would continue to ignore the group’s sorties.

Asked what precisely would precipitate such action, Binay replied: “Kung kami naman ay magmumukhang kawawa sa usapan,  di na kami papayag noon (If we look pathetic, then we will not agree to that).”


Escudero, like Senator Loren Legarda and Grace Poe-Llamanzares, is a common candidate on both the administration Team PNoy and UNA tickets.
