The political party of former President and now Manila mayor Joseph Estrada has cut its ties with the United Nationalist Alliance.
Sen. JV Ejercito said that his father, Mayor Erap is no longer an official member of the UNA. Erap, together with Vice President Jejomar Binay and currently under hospital arrest, Senator Juan Ponce-Enrile are three pillars of the said political party.
However, Ejercito clarified that his father’s no-show in yesterday’s UNA launch doesn’t mean that he’s supporting Senator Grace Poe’s impending candidacy.
The Senator admits that if Poe decides to run for President in 2016, they will have difficulties in choosing their allegiance.
But Senator JV sad that in case his father endorses Senator Grace, the relationship between the Binay and Estrada families will not be severed.
