Stick to Cynthia! NP will go all in for Villar if she decides to run for Senate President – Imee
Senator-elect Imee Marcos confirms that there are talks in the Senate to push for her Nacionalista Party mate Senator Cynthia Villar, who recently topped the 2019 mid-term polls, as the Senate President in the 18th Congress.
Marcos said that if Villar was interested in replacing Senate President Tito Sotto, she and te NP would not think twice aboug going all out for her win.
“I haven’t heard anything except Senate President Tito Sotto although I heard there was some lobbying for Cynthia Villar to step in. There hasn’t been a real effort to campaign…wala pang tumatawag sa akin,” Marcos told ANC.
Marcos agreed with party-mate and fellow Senator-elect Pia Cayetano that NP would go all out for Villar as Senate President if she wanted the post.
“Apat kami na senador, -Senator (Ralph) Recto is there, Pia ako and Senator Cynthia lahat kami Naciolnalista. Having said that it’s been asserted that once you hit the Senate, you vote as an individual and parties don’t hold as much as they did previously, kaya ako hindi ko alam. Palagay ko siyempre stick to your party, but more importantly stick to Senator Cynthia dahil shes’s being so good to us lagi kaming nakiki-angkas sa airplane niya,” said Marcos.
Villar is the wife of the richest Filipino Manny Villar.
