Osmeña’s senatorial bid gets boost from Lacson
MANILA, Philippines —Senator Panfilo Lacson said former Senator Serge Osmeña is one of the senatorial bets who will be getting his vote in the May elections.
On Thursday, Lacson identified nine of 10 senatorial candidates who would be getting his vote.
In a Twitter post on Friday, the senator said he earlier wanted to mention Osmeña’s name as among those he will be voting for. Lacson said he did not mention Osmeña’s name saying he had to get his permission first.
“Media asked me for the names of senatorial candidates that I will write on my ballot. Without assuming it will matter, I mentioned 10 names,” Lacson said.
“I wanted to mention Sen SERGE OSMEÑA but he may not want it, so I asked him and he said yes. I now have 11,” he said.
The nine senatorial bets he earlier named as his ballot picks are the seven reelectionists senators — Sonny Angara, Bam Aquino, Nancy Binay, JV Ejercito, Koko Pimentel, Grace Poe, and Cynthia Villar— former Senator Mar Roxas, and Dr. Willie Ong. /muf
