MANILA, Philippines — Cavite 4th District Representative Elpidio Barzaga, the president of the National Unity Party (NUP) which had earlier backed the presidential bid of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, went against his party’s stand and threw his support for Vice President Leni Robredo.

The solon’s wife, Dasmariñas City Mayor Jenny Barzaga is also endorsing Robredo’s presidential bid in the May 9 polls.

“As I analyzed all the qualifications and experience of all the candidates for president, only one has the experience in the three departments of our government. And that is Leni Robredo,” said Barzaga during the proclamation rally of the local candidates of his Team Dasma.

“If we base [it on] her track record, naniwala ako that she is the most qualified to be elected as president. Kapag siya ang naging Pangulo, talagang magkakaroon tayo ng gobyernong tapat at aangat ang buhay ng lahat,” he added.
