FVR supports JDV III, still silent on presidential pick

FVR with De Venecia


On Thursday, former president Fidel Ramos officially gave his support  to senatorial aspirant Jose “Joey" de Venecia III, but remained tight-lipped on his choice for president in the May polls.

DeVenecia is his grandson,  and son of his loyal supporter former House Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr. .  As a symbol of support, Ramos raised the hand of De Venecia after their forum in Makati.

“Sinabi ko na nga, siya [De Venecia] ay matino, matapang, magaling at matuwid (I’ve said it already, he is wise, courageous, competent, and straight)," Ramos said.

When asked about his presidential choice, he said he will be making endorsements one at a time.

Meanwhile, De Venecias are happy with the the former president’s support for Joey.
