MANILA – Famed movie producer Mother Lily Monteverde is throwing her support for two candidates of Team PNoy, Senators Loren Legarda and Alan Peter Cayetano.

In a press conference, Monteverde said she admires Legarda for her strength and conviction.

“She always gives 110 percent of herself in everything she does. I know how difficult it is to excel in your career and to still be around for your family. Most people focus on one and neglect the other, but Loren has succeeded in both. She certainly deserves to be Number One in this senatorial election,” she said.

She also recently expressed her support for Cayetano.

"He is a good man, an honest man. He will surely continue to be an asset in the Senate," she said.

She recalled how the senator went to visit her as she lay recovering from an operation several months ago. "He brought me flowers. If he can be this good to someone like me, imagine how much more he'll be willing to help others especially those in dire need," she shared.

Legarda and Cayetano were recently ranked 1st and 2nd in the Social Weather Stations pre-election survey on the senatorial election.
