Bayani Fernando for Vice President, running mate of Gordon in 2010 election

Bayani Fernando will run for Vice President and will be the running mate of Senator Richard Gordon in the 2010 election.

"You can call us the transformers. We are here to transform the nation," Gordon said at a news conference this afternoon held at the Senate press office in Pasay City.

Gordon and Bayani will be running under the former's Bagumbayan Party which was accredited by the Comelec as a political party two months ago.

Gordon said they will not be fielding any senatorial candidates "because [they] are willing to work with everybody."

"Pareho kami ng values, pareho ng vision (We share the same values, we share the same vision)," the senator added, referring to his tandem with Fernando, who earlier sought to be the standard bearer of the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD but lost the nomination to former Defense chief Gilberto Teodoro Jr.

Apparently, Bayani Fernando said it was him who tried to convince Gordon to be his running mate although it was the latter who eventually convinced the former to run as vice president.

On the other hand, Gordon said he agreed to team up with Fernando because he witnessed how the latter transformed Marikina City the same way that he transformed Olongapo City.

The Gordon-Bayani tandem will file their certificates of candidacy (COC) before the Commission on Elections in Intramuros, Manila later in the day.
