Presidential aspirant Senator Panfilo Lacson said money was the reason why Alvarez and his party Partido Reporma abandoned him to shift support to rival Vice President Leni Robredo in the presidential race in the May 9 election.

“If pre-election surveys was his primary reason for switching his support, I don’t believe it because like me, Mayor Isko and Sen. Pacquiao, his newly chosen candidate is also lagging far behind the survey leader,” Lacson said.

“Time to call a spade a spade. It was actually more about the issue of campaign expenses for their local candidates. His chief of staff was asking for 800 million pesos in additional funding which I honestly told him I cannot produce,” Lacson said in a statemnt on Friday, March 25.
