Isko Moreno says no talks yet for endorsement of PDP-Laban Cusi wing
CAVITE, Philippines — Presidential candidate and Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Thursday said there are no talks yet for the endorsement of the PDP-Laban wing led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
To recall, Moreno earlier said he is seeking the endorsement of the PDP-Laban wing aligned with President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Wala pa (No such thing yet),” Moreno said when asked if there are talks between him and Cusi’s PDP-Laban wing during a chance interview at the municipal hall of General Mariano Alvarez town in Cavite.
“Sana maramdaman nila ako. Ako nagpaparamdam ng tulong…Lahat ng mabuting tulong ay kailangan namin ngayong halalan na ito,” he added.
(I hope they can sense my appeal for help. I need all kinds of help for this election.)
The PDP-Laban wing aligned with Cusi initially fielded Sen. Ronald dela Rosa as its presidential bet and Sen. Christopher Go as its vice presidential candidate. Both have since withdrawn, leaving the party without standard-bearers.
The party then backed the vice presidential bid of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, but not the presidential bid of running mate, former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos.
