MANILA, Philippines - Former Senator Jamby Madrigal on Monday welcomed reports that she is allegedly being considered in the Liberal Party's shortlist for the 2013 senatorial elections.

Madrigal, however, said the final list has yet to be released.

"Ako'y nagpapasalamat na kinokonsider ako ng LP lalo ng ng ating Presidente. Hindi pa lumalabas yun final list. Ako'y naghihintay," she said.

"Pero kung lumabas na yung final list at nandon ako, ako'y nagpapasalamat. Sapagkat yung pananaw na tuwid na pamamahala ay nagkakapareho kami ng pananaw ng presidente sa governance, sa paglaban para sa hustisya," she added.

Madrigal said she doesn't have a quarrel with Senator and former presidential candidate Manny Villar.

"Siguro naman ay maganda na po at magkaron na ng unity. Wala naman kaming personalan ni Senator Villar. Let us build on the future. "Iyung nakaraan ay nakaraan na," she said.

Madrigal had accused Villar of pushing for the realignment of the C-5 road extension project for the benefit of his real estate business in Las Piñas. The claim hurt Villar's presidential campaign in 2010.
