The Liberal Party denied allegations by the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) that they were behind the controversial paid TV ads reviving the corruption allegations against Vice President Jejomar Binay. The statement was released by the Liberal Party spokesperson, Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice.


According to Rep. Erice, the ruling party would rather spend campaign funds to advertisements promoting its standard-bearer Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo.

“Definitely not. Kung gagastos kami, para kay Secretary Mar at Vice President Leni, hindi para kay Binay (We would rather spend campaign funds for Secretary Mar and Vice President Leni),” Erice said.

“Hindi naman incognito ang kontrata between GMA and the person who contracted the ads. So palagay ko, dun madali naman imbestigahan at madali mapatunayan kung sino talaga, kaninong grupo konektado yung palabas na yan,” Erice added.

Although the LP denied the allegations thrown at them by UNA, Rep. Erice admitted that the negative advertisements would serve to benefit Binay’s opponents but urged VP Binay to address the corruption allegations against him which were raised in the Senate Blue Ribbon subcommittee investigation.

“Matagal nang sinasabi ng buong bansa na kailangan niyang ipaliwanag. Pero hindi niya pinapaliwanag, dinadaan niya sa paliwanag na pulitika lahat,” Erice said.
