Makabayan bloc may support Grace Poe’s presidential candidacy

The presidential candidacy of Senator Grace Poe will possibly be supported by at least four political groups which include Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), Nacionalista Party (NP), Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) and the Makabayan bloc.

NUP president Deputy Speaker Roberto Puno confirmed, in a report by ABS-CBN News, House Minority Leader Ronaldo Zamora’s statement that Poe will run under a political coalition but she will remain independent. “The leaderships of NUP, NP, NPC and Makabayan have met several times amongst ourselves and once with Senator Grace Poe,” Puno added.

However Puno noted that “NUP is still in the process of vetting the presidential candidates and have not yet made a party stand.”

Meanwhile, the Makabayan bloc will meet in a convention on September 30 to finalize whom it will support in the presidential and vice presidential race.
