MANILA, Philippines - Former Tarlac governor Margarita "Tingting" Cojuangco believes her senatorial bid in the 2013 elections will not cause a rift in the Cojuangco family.

"The President and our family are intact. Very much so," she said.

Cojuangco is the aunt of President Benigno Aquino III.

Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said the poll body will start accepting certificates of candidacy next week, from October 1-5.
