Koko Pimentel Decides to Leave the Coalition of Joseph Estrada & Jejomar Binay

Senator Koko Pimentel left United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), the coalition of former President Joseph Estrada and Vice President Jejomar Binay.

Pimentel spoke with Estrada but he did not try to convince him to change his decision.

Koko’s decision stemmed from the issue that UNA will field in its Senatorial slate Juan Miguel Zubiri, who allegedly benefited from the electoral fraud in 2007 in which he lost.

However, Pimentel admitted that it would be better to have the support of political personalities like Estrada and Binay but he is willing to take the risk.

The senator is open to being a guest candidate of other parties.

He does not want to discuss it now because there is no formal invitation yet.
