One Cebu Party may have decided to drop VP Binay for their presidential bet, but they still haven’t decided who to endorse this coming May elections. This is despite the rumors that they have been talking about supporting Senator Grace Poe.
“That’s a complete lie,” said One Cebu chairman Winston Garcia in an interview with Rappler. “I hope Congressman Durano will be very circumspect and truthful in his statement because that will not do good to his candidate.”
This response was after ABS-CBN reported that the party was looking to support Poe in her campaign, with Durano doing the talking. Durano also said to Rappler that he had “informal discussions with Congressman Benhur Salinbangon about the possibility of One Cebu supporting Senator Grace and Senator Chiz.”
“Some One Cebu local officials also approached us on the same matter,” he added. “I don’t know if they informed Winston about this.”
The party withdrew their endorsement of Binay a day after the second presidential debate in UP Cebu on Sunday, March 20, due to “miscommunication,” with UNA failing to invite with One Cebu during their activities in the province.
