MANILA, May 25 (Mabuhay) —  1Sambayan coalition said it will unveil its list of nominees for president and vice president on June 12, Independence Day, convener Howard Calleja said Monday.

Calleja said that nominees are only open for people to choose who among them will be the coalition’s final choice.

“Since poll is open to members and public then they have a participation in choosing their candidate and next president,” he said.

Earlier, Calleja said former senator Antonio Trillanes IV has always been considered a prospective presidential candidate by 1Sambayan.

Trillanes has announced that he would seek the presidency in 2022.

Calleja said the coalition is also considering Vice President Leni Robredo part of the process.

Robredo previously said she would rather return to local politics but is open to running for president in May next year. (MNS)
