Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. is set to convene members of the United Negros Alliance (UNA) this week to discuss the party’s possible merger with Love Negros party for the 2016 elections.

A source told Negros Daily Bulletin that Marañon is mulling on coalescing with Love Negros since his party mates might be left “like orphans” if he wins his last term in next year’s polls. 

“[If the governor wins], nobody will head us anymore as Gov. Marañon will be too old already.” the source said. “We will be like orphans which I don’t believe the governor will allow.”

However, a factor which may drive a wedge in merger talks is Marañon’s public endorsement for Interior Secretary Mar Roxas for president.

Love Negros is affiliated with the Nationalist People’s Coalition, which has yet to announce whom it will support in the national election.

Previous reports quoted Love Negros member and Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson as saying that NPC chairman emeritus Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco will have to be consulted about the party’s possible merger with UNA.
