MANILA, Philippines—The  lines  are now  “very clear” between  the reformists and  the  opposition now  that the United Nationalist Alliance  (UNA)  dropped its three guest candidates, a spokesman of Team PNoy said on  Thursday.

The three candidates  who were dropped  by UNA are  Senators Francis “Chiz” Escudero and Loren Legarda and  former MTRCB chairperson  Grace Poe-Llamanzares.

They are officially running under  the administration’s Team PNoy.


“Now the lines are very clear between the reformists  and the opposition. At least  the people will now have a clear choice whom to vote in the May 13 elections,”  Team PNoy spokesman and Easter Samar Representative Ben Evardone said in a text message.

“We would  like   to stress that the three are our official candidates,” he  said.

Evardone said  Team  PNoy  was  no longer surprised by UNA’s decision, saying  it was “forthcoming after the three stood firm in supporting the reform agenda of President Aquino.”
