PNoy to make pitch for LP bets
MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino is expected to make a pitch for the administration’s bets in his speeches as a way of helping in the campaign, Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Thursday.
“He will be involved in campaigning also for his candidates, administration candidates. So bulk of the messaging would be in the speeches that he would be delivering,” he said.
