Fresh News: As indicated by the House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, re-electionist Senators Grace Poe and Nancy Binay may join President Duterte Senate bets for 2019 if the two legislators will jump ship and join the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino– Lakas ng Bayan.

Although Speaker Alvarez rejected adding visitor candidates to the 2019 PDP-Laban senatorial line-up, including the individuals who might look for re-election, he is still open to include Poe in the list if the latter will join PDP.

When asked if they will include Poe in the roster, Alvarez answered: "Kung mag-PDP siya."

Alvarez also reiterated that he does not need guest candidates because a lot of PDP members wanted to run still. And if they are only guest candidates, there is a possibility that they will not be committed to the party and its advocacy, much more to Pres. Duterte's advocacy.

He said "Di ko kailangan ng mga guest candidates, ang daming gustong tumakbo na PDP…Pag independent ka, you run as independent,"

"Kung guest candidate ka lang, hindi ka committed sa party, sa mga advocacy ng party, sa mga advocacy ng pangulo," Alvarez added.

Individuals from PDP-Laban possess a larger part of key positions in the administration. Among them are President Rodrigo Duterte, Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, and Alvarez.

Meanwhile, he also said that Senator Cynthia Villar may join the lineup since the party has a coalition concurrence with her Nacionalista Party while Senators Nancy Binay, Sonny Angara, JV Ejercito may likewise look for re-election and they may join PDP-Laban's senatorial roster on the off chance that they join the party.

In can also be recalled that last November, Alvarez named Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux "Mocha" Uson and Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque among the individuals who may look for a 2019 senatorial seat under the party banner.



Likewise on the rundown are officials Karlo Nograles, Geraldine Roman, and Albee Benitez, and previous Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chair Francis Tolentino, who is presently a political consultant to Duterte.

Alvarez added that he will let others run for senate if he will see that they will be productive and will do their job efficient and fast.

"Magpapatakbo ako ng mga senador na alam kong magtatrabaho kasi nababagalan nga ako, assuming na pareho pa rin yung form of government," he said in an interview.

On the other hand, Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III who's term will end in 2019 may seek re-election and as the head of the party, he said that the "offer" will prioritize obligatory senators and the party outsiders might be considered if PDP-Laban fails to complete its "Magic 12".
