Led by its candidate for the Senate Rep. Neri Colmenares, the Makabayan bloc formally endorsed Grace Poe and Chiz Escudero as
their presidential and vice presidential candidates, respectively, in the coming 2016 national elections.
The endorsement came after the ongoing Makabayan National Council meeting decided on Poe and Escudero as their official bets.
Here are excerpts of the official announcement at the Quezon City
