Servant-leader Monsi dela Cruz earned a pair of endorsements in his congressional campaign in the 1st District of Zamboanga City from the stalwarts of United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), including former President Joseph Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

On Tuesday Estrada of Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) invited Dela Cruz and the ZTZ team led by former congressman Nonong Jalosjos for a lunch at his residence and personally endorsed the servant leader for congress.

The endorsement came after Dela Cruz was also endorsed by Enrile, another UNA stalwart, during a breakfast meeting at Intercontinental Hotel in Makati City.

Atty. Carl Rubio, legal adviser of the Nuevo Zamboanga College founded by Dela Cruz, said the former president is glad to see Dela Cruz in the congressional race of Zamboanga City under District I and he has his total support.

Dela Cruz, a long time close friend of Estrada who helped the former priest in his efforts to reconstruct the Immaculate Conception Cathedral along La Purisima St., said he is very honored to have the endorsements.of Estrada and Enrile.

“Indeed, a very fruitful and meaningful day,” Dela Cruz said.

The congressional aspirant was also expected to officially be endorsed anytime this week by Vice President Jejomar Binay’s Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban). — GH
