MANILA, Philippines – With  less than three  weeks before  election day,  the Nationalist  People’s Coalition (NPC) met and urged its members  to campaign  for the party’s  senatorial candidates in  the forthcoming elections.

In an Instagram  post   on Wednesday, Senator  JV Ejercito posted a photo with party chairman  emeritus  Eduardo “Danding”  Cojuangco and  NPC senators  “in a dinner/meeting last night.”

“Thank you for the support and extra push my party mates!”  Ejercito said in the post.

Aside from  Cojuangco and Ejercito, also  in the photo were  Senators  Francis Escudero, Loren Legarda, Grace Poe and  Sherwin Gatchalian, and former Senator  Lito Lapid.


Ejercito, Escudero, Legarda, Lapid and Gatchalian are party members  while   Poe is an adopted candidate.

Asked  about the meeting with Cojuangco, Gatchalian said: “It was an endorsement and an appeal to our NPC partymates to campaign for our NPC senatorial candidates and adopted candidates.”

“The NPC candidates are Sen. Ejercito and Sen. Lapid. The NPC adopted candidate is Sen. Grace Poe,” he said in a text message.

Gatchalian, however, clarified that the NPC would still  endorse other candidates.

“But these are the candidates who were just present last night,” he pointed out.

Last month,   Senate President  Vicente “Tito” Sotto  III, acting chairperson of NPC,  revealed his own “Tough Ten” senatorial bets.

The list includes Ejercito,  Lapid,   Poe  Senators Sonny Angara, Bam Aquino, Nancy Binay, Koko Pimentel, and Cynthia Villar; Taguig Rep. Pia Cayetano, and former presidential aide Christopher “Bong” Go. /gsg
