Neric Acosta leads LP Mindanao assembly in Cagayan de Oro City for Noy-Mar tandem



CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - Hundreds of leaders and supporters of the Liberal Party trooped to Cagayan de Oro City yesterday and attended the Mindanao Assembly headed by LP senatorial bet Nereus “Neric” Acosta.

The activity was part of the many assemblies that will be held by the Liberal Party in Mindanao to solicit support from party members and supporters. The assembly in Cagayan de Oro was also graced by LP Director General Chito Gascon.

In an interview with the media, senatorial bet Neric Acosta said they are overwhelmed by the show of support by many groups and Non-Government organizations in Mindanao. There are big youth groups and alliances in Mindanao which also pledge to support the LP line up. 

“We are very thankful we receive various support and we hope more and more groups will be behind this campaign for a change in leadership in the country,” he said.

Acosta said the Noynoy-Mar tandem for president and vice president, respectively, is now the right time to achieve change long dreamed by the people.
“There’s no stopping to the show of support that we receive everyday from the people and organizations who always want a new kind and brand of leadership.”

Acosta said their initial senatorial line up includes him, Franklin Drilon, Rofi Biazon, Riza Hontiveros, TG Guingona, Serge Osmena, Sonia Roco, Jamby Madrigal, and Danilo Lim.
He said akbayan’s Hontiveros and other senatorial bets are not really members of the Liberal Party and they are considered guest candidates.

“We are very careful in choosing our senatorial slate because we want that those who will join us should also carry the dreams and aspirations for change in governance by the Noynoy-Mar tandem in 2010,” Acosta said.

On November 27, during their national convention in Araneta Coliseum the Liberal Party is going to formally announce its official line up for senatorial positions.
“As of now we are still in the process of screening some senatoriables who have expressed plans to join our final slate,” he said, adding that they should also protect the interest of the party as well as the integrity of the group who shall compose the whole senatorial line up.

Earlier, Senator Jamby Madrigal had also expressed of running for the presidency but with the reports now, things are going that Jamby has already decided to slide down to a senatorial bet under the Noynoy-Mar tandem.
