Joseph Estrada | Erap Will Run Again For President
Written under: Philippines, Politics
It’s been announced that former president Joseph Estrada will be officially launching his presidential bid in the 2010 elections this afternoon in a convention of the United Opposition coalition party in Tondo, Manila.
The latest Social Weather Stations poll determined him to place third, trailing behind Senators Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and Manny Villar – which gave him an idea that the country still wants him president.
Also expected to attend the UNO convention at Plaza Amado Hernandez in Tondo this afternoon are Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay – Estrada’s reported runningmate.
Moreover, some of the coalition’s senatorial candidates, including Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, Sen. Jinggoy Estrada and lawyer Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III will also be there.
