Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said she is set to endorse former interior secretary Rafael M. Alunan III in Pampanga on Wednesday. “Tomorrow, I’m bringing one of the PDP (Partido Demokratiko Pilipino) candidates to Pampanga — Raffy Alunan, the newest addition,” Ms. Arroyo told reporters on the sidelines of the House Committee on Housing and Urban Development hearing in Tondo, Manila, Tuesday. The Speaker’s endorsement followed the PDP-Laba’s pronouncement that Mr. Alunan will complete its senatorial slate. President Rodrigo R. Duterte described Mr. Alunan as “one of the brightest in (Former President Fidel V.) Ramos’ Cabinet” during a PDP-Laban campaign rally in Cebu last Sunday. Mr. Alunan also served as tourism secretary of President Corazon C. Aquino’s administration. — Charmaine A. Tadalan
