Edu Manzano for Vice President: Gilbert Teodoro running mate in 2010

Local TV host and actor Edu Manzano is running run for Vice President. He will be the running mate of Gilbert Teodoro in the Philippine election this 2010, as announced today by Lakas-Kampi-CMD party vice chairman and Interior and Local Governments secretary Ronaldo Puno.

"Ako po ay tuwang-tuwa, nagagalak na tinanggap ng aking katambalan ang indikasyon ng inyong lingkod sa pamamagitan ni Secretary Ronnie Puno (I'm very glad that he accepted it through Secretary Puno)," said Teodoro at a press conference at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

Manzano's decision to join the ruling party surprised politicians. It was earlier reported that he would run as senator under the LP, instead of vice president.

"I have to tell everyone that Secretary Puno played a very big role on convincing me. I have on many occasions expressed my respect for Secretary Teodoro, and I believe that he possesses all qualities to move this country forward," Edu Manzano said.

The 54-year-old Manzano, was born in the US but sees no legal hindrance in his candidacy. Earlier, the Supreme Court has already dismissed a petition questioning his qualification to run for public office because of his citizenship.

It took a while before the Lakas-Kampi-CMD party was able to pick its vice presidential bet. Edu was among the four individuals being considered by the administration to become the running mate of Teodoro.

The other three were Sen. Loren Legarda, vice presidential bet of the Nationalist People's Coalition, Tourism Secretary Ace Durano, and senator-actor Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.

Meanwhile, Manzano led in public service when he was still a vice mayor. Likewise, he was able to continue his fight for unity and has a strong advocacy for the youth. He was very concerned about the moral rectitude of the youth when he was OMB chair.
