Sawa na sa matatanda: Isko Moreno gets Iglesia Ni Cristo’s endorsement

0

The Iglesia Ni Cristo has thrown its support behind the candidacy of former Manila vice mayor Isko Moreno in the city’s mayoralty race.

The influential religious sect, which is known for voting as a bloc during the elections, also endorsed Moreno’s running mate, Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna.

Moreno said he was personally informed of Iglesia Ni Cristo’s decision after a church official asked him to go to the district office headed by Bro. Macleo Ibasco.

The former vice mayor expressed gratitude to Iglesia Ni Cristo for supporting his mayoralty bid.

“Nagpapasalamat po tayo kay kapatid na Eduardo V. Manalo at sa mga kapatid sa Iglesia sa pagtitiwala nila sa atin. Kung kami man po ay mahalal, makakaasa po ang bawat Manileno na pagbubutihin namin ni Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna ang aming trabaho para maiangat ang antas ng pamumuhay sa Lungsod ng Maynila,” he said.

Moreno is running against older politikos: incumbent Manila mayor Joseph Estrada and former mayor Alfredo Lim.
