NP-NPC-LDP vice presidential candidate Loren Legarda, along with running mate Manny Villar will attend the Bulawan Festival in Compostela Valley at the invitation of Governor Arturo Uy.

"It's not really a campaign sortie of the usual kind," Loren said. "But the governor will allow us to speak and present our platforms of government. So as not to disrupt the festive mood, nobody is allowed to take potshots at other candidates."

At the Kapihan sa PIA (Philippine Information Agency) last Tuesday, Uy said: "We are inviting them para makilala sila ng aming mga constituents, to share their political platform."

But he warned that he would not hesitate to call down from the stage anyone who would attack their political opponents.

"That's a refreshing change," Loren said. "I've always urged my fellow candidates to stick to the issues and refrain from mudslinging." The Compostela Valley trip is part of the third day schedule of the NP campaign in Mindanao.
