Press Statement of Senator Koko Pimentel

The heading in entitled "Drop Zubiri or else dissolve coalition, Pimentel tells UNA" is inaccurate and baseless. I never told UNA to "Drop Zubiri or else dissolve coalition." I told Maila Ager over the phone that, in fairness to UNA, all efforts are being exerted and all possible avenues are being pursued to solve this controversy within the coalition. I have discussed the idea of dissolving the UNA coalition in order to avoid this issue of my running with Zubiri in one senatorial slate involving my party with USec. Benjie Martinez of the Office of Vice President Binay.

All options to resolve issues related to the PDP Laban Coalition with the PMP in the UNA are being discussed by PDP Laban Party Officials based on party principles and programs. I will continue to do this to ensure the victory of our party candidates in 2013.
