MANILA, Philippines -- Character actor Lou Veloso has been voted by the Liberal Party-Kapayapaan, Katarungan at Kaunlaran to run alongside Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim in the 2013 local polls.

Information from the office of the city mayor revealed that the decision was arrived at last week, during a meeting among the leaders of the ruling party in Manila.

Nonetheless, there is no final announcement yet from Lim. He is expected to disclose his running mate on Friday.

Veloso, who appeared in the Hollywood film "The Bourne Legacy," is not new in politics. He became a Manila councilor in 1995.
