The Zubiri – Acosta partnership, one once believed will never happen as the Zubiris and the Acostas are longtime political rivals, is seen as a strategic step for the 2013 midterm elections.
No less than resigned Senator Juan Miguel “Migs” Zubiri confirmed this political alliance to Bukidnon News blog Bukidnon Online.
In a text message sent to Bukidnon Online, Migs Zubiri said: “Yes, we have made up with Neric” – referring to former Bukidnon First District Congressman Neric Acosta.
Another Zubiri also confirmed the alliance.
Incumbent Malaybalay City Mayor Ignacio “Inaki” Zubiri, who is believed to seek re-election, told Bukidnon Online that their party, the Bukidnon Paglaum Party (BPP) has “forged an alliance with the LP (Liberal Party), NP (Nacionalista Party) and UNA (United Nationalist Alliance).”
