MANILA, April 12, 2013— Catholic groups will unveil White Vote Movement’s initial list of senatorial candidates that they will support on Saturday, April 13.
The announcement will be made at the Amvel complex in Parañaque City during a gathering that will start at 5 pm.
Bro. Mike Velarde said his El Shaddai group and other lay organizations are hoping to gather 500,000 people tomorrow who will act as volunteers in campaigning for their “pro-life and pro-family” bets.
“We are expecting an attendance of half-a-million and encourage them to work for at least 10 voters each,” Velarde said.
According to him, the volunteers, who will all be in white shirts, are coming from more than 30 lay groups nationwide.
“We will encourage them to go back to their communities and barangays to campaign for the candidates we have chosen for senators this coming elections,” he said.
Velarde earlier said that they might endorse around six to 10 senatorial candidates chosen for their stand against issues like the Reproductive Health Law, divorce and same-sex marriage.
“We will be issuing our own sample ballot so that our faithful will be properly guided who to vote,” he said. (CBCPNews)
