MANILA, Philippines – Contrary to reports, the Liberal Party (LP) and the Nacionalista Party  have not officially discussed any possible alliance in 2016, Senate President  Franklin Drilon said Tuesday.

But Drilon, vice chairman of LP, did not discount the possibility that there were discussions among representatives of both parties.


“Siguro may ilang mga ibang kinatawan ng LP at NP na on a personal basis pinag-uusapan, (Maybe there are  some  representative  of LP and  NP  who are discussing  about it on a personal basis),”  he said when  asked  in a radio interview about  the reported possible coalition of the parties in 2016.

“Kaya I don’t discount the possibility na there are discussions on a personal basis pero (but) on official basis, wala pa pong pinag uusapan (there are no discussions yet),” Drilon added.


Cayetano, who belongs to NP, has declared his intention to run for president while LP has been reportedly eyeing Local Government Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas to be its standard-bearer.

The two parties, along with other political groups, have been part of a coalition since the 2013 senatorial polls.
