The gubernatorial and vice gubernatorial posts of the United Negros Alliance under Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr., for 2016 in non negotiable if ever there will be a merger with Love Negros Team, according to Provincial Board Member Salvador Escalante (2nd district, Neg. Occ.) a close ally of Maranon.

Escalante added that this is because as far as their group is concerned, it has reached a consensus that 4th district Congressman Jeffrey Ferrer (4th district, Neg. Occ.) will be the tandem of Marañon in the coming 2016 elections.

“We have agreed that the governor will run for a 3rd term and his vice gov will be Congressman Ferrer” Escalante said.

He added that this was the consensus of the group right after the 2013 elections when Maranon won over former vice governor Genaro Alvarez who was supported by former ambassasor Eduardo Cojuangco and the Love Negros Team.

“It still stands as of the moment” Escalante said.

When asked about Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, Escalante said Marañon has suggested that the former will run for congressman in the 1st district.

“The governor will support him if he runs for congressman” Escalante said.

When asked whether the proposed merger by the Love Negros Team is doomed to fail, Escalante said “not necessary but the Governor and the Vice Governor posts are no longer negotiable”.
