MANILA - The political party founded by businessman Eduardo 'Danding' Cojuangco Jr. may form a coalition for its senatorial slate in the 2019 midterm polls, one of its member said Thursday.

Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto III, member of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) said their lineup will be a mixture of familiar names from different political parties.

“We will support a coalition dahil malaking bagay pag sinabing we will support the coalition. These candidates can freely go to these and that areas,” Sotto said.

He said they have yet to come up with their final lineup because a lot of senatorial aspirants are seeking NPC’s support. But he assured they will make an announcement before October.
