Loren-Chiz or Chiz-Loren in 2010?

Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco, Jr. want Chiz, Loren tandem in 2010 elections.

Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) party leaders and members made clear during their Christmas party on Monday night at the exclusive Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Mandaluyong City that the two senators are their choices for their presidential slate, PhilStar.com report reads.

It is not yet clear if it will be Chiz – Loren or Loren  – Chiz.

Of the two,  Sen. Loren Legarda publicly expressed here interest to run as president in 2010. Sen. Chiz Escudero, also had made public some hints about his political ambition which likely be the President – the highest post.

It seems Sen. Francis Escudero, is the most favorable contender for president in 2010 but I doubt Sen. Loren Legarda concede and run instead as vice president. Her widely-broadcast infomercial about corruption affirm her serious intention to get into Malacanang. In 2004 national elections, Legarda lost to former collegue in ABS-CBN, then Senator Noli de Castro.

Loren Legarda consistently got favorable rank in surveys for presidential bet in 2010. If Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) see significant chances for Legarda, the party most likely endorse her.

In 2010 elections, the pro-administration Nationalist People’s Coalition is expected to take a lead. Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco told that NPC would have a full 12-member senatorial ticket in 2010 as reported by PhilStar.com.

As declared by Sen. Escudero, 2010 will be an NPC year.

Although it seems clear that NPC wants Chiz, Loren tandem and the party patriach Danding Cojuangco endorse the them, there may some major setbacks. Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr., Cojuangco’s nephew also had moist eye for the highest post.

Sec. Teodoro is a true-blooded NPC guy while Legarda is a  newcomer to the party.

Sen. Legarda came from Lakas and the pro-administration Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP), which was founded by Sen. Edgardo Angara and who continues to lead it, PhilStar.com noted.

The NPC’s bets in 2010 was announced during the Party’s christmas party. It was noticed that Sec. Teodoro was absent. Will Teodoro, a genuine NPC member continue to pursue his plan in 2010 even without the party blessings?
