In a bid to complete their senatorial-line up, Senators Grace Poe and Francis Escudero are attending the proclamation this afternoon of lawyer Lorna Kapunan as senatorial candidate under Aksyon Demokratiko.
Coming from a sortie in Catanduanes, Poe and Escudero are now rushing from the airport to Kapunan’s declaration at Balay Kalinaw (also known as Ikeda Hall), Guerrero corner Dagohoy Streets in UP Diliman, Quezon City.
Interviewed earlier at Catanduanes, Escudero revealed that their complete senatorial lineup for the 2016 national elections on Monday (October 26, 2015).
It was Poe herself who chose the 12 senatorial candidates who will be part of their line-up, Escudero said.
“She’s the one who talked with them. I will leave it to her to announce who are the 12 candidates that will be included in the lineup,” Escudero said.
The duo delayed the formal announcement of their senatorial line-up in deference to the victims of Typhoon Lando that devastated many areas in Northern and Central Luzon.
Earlier this month, Poe and Escudero also attended the separate proclamation of the senatorial bids of Rep. Neri Colmenares and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.
