The Liberal Party will be entering the 2010 elections campaign with a complete senatorial slate, now that the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) en banc has affirmed the candidacy of reformist Brig. Gen. Danilo Lim under the LP.

"Sasabak kami sa giyera na may kumpletong senatorial slate, kasama ang magiting na si Brig. Gen. Danny Lim. (We will go to battle with a complete senatorial slate, now that the valiant Brig. Gen. Danny Lim is with us)," said Senator Mar Roxas, LP President and vice-presidential candidate.

"Nilabanan ni Danny Lim ang matinding katiwalian sa Sandatahang Lakas--ang dahilan kung bakit sarili nating bala ang pumapatay sa ating mga sundalo. Magiting at nasa tamang lugar ang puso, kaya magiging mahusay siyang senador ng ating bansa (Danny Lim fought against massive corruption in the Armed Forces�the reason why our own bullets kill our own soldiers. Brave and with his heart in the right place, he will be a good senator of our country)," he stressed.

"Sa pamumuno ni Noynoy Aquino, isusulong ng LP at ng People's Reform senatorial slate ang pagbabago sa Pilipinas (With Noynoy Aquino as our leader, the LP and the People's Reform senatorial slate will fight for genuine change in the Philippines )," he said.

Lim was earlier disqualified by the COMELEC for supposedly not having the capability to launch a nationwide campaign. But after the LP intervened and said Lim belongs to its slate, the COMELEC en banc through Resolution 8743 affirmed Lim's candidacy.

Aside from Lim, other candidates belonging to the People's Reform slate are:

  • Former Senate President Frank Drilon;

  • Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon;

  • Bukidnon Rep. TG Guingona;

  • Dr. Nereus "Teacher Neric" Acosta;

  • Akbayan! Party-List Rep. Risa Hontiveros;

  • Former Socioeconomic Planning Sec. Ralph Recto;

  • Former Senator Serge Osmeña;

  • Education advocate Sonia Roco;

  • Atty. Alex "Pinoy" Lacson;

  • Health advocate Dr. Martin Bautista; and

  • Women's rights advocate Yasmin Busran Lao.
