ALBAY, Philippines - Albay Gov. Joey Salceda believes not all of the Team PNoy senatorial candidates will be in the top 12 in Albay.

Salceda said that while he is campaining for the 12 Team PNoy candidates, he believes only 10 of them will win in Albay.

He said two United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) candidates, JV Ejercito and Juan Miguel Zubiri, will most likely claim the last 2 winning slots in Albay.

He did not reveal the names of the 2 Team PNoy candidates who he thinks will lose in Albay.

Salceda said that although regionalism isn't a big factor anymore compared to previous elections, some Bicolanos still tend to support Bicolano candidates and those they are familiar with.

He cited several of the candidates' frequent visits to Bicol to establish themselves in the area and to court voters.

"Pag hindi bumisita ng Albay? Goodbye," he said.
