Sen. Sherwin “Win” Gatchalian has been removed from Partido Reporma’s senatorial slate after appearing at another presidential bet’s proclamation rally.

Partido Reporma’s presidential bet is  Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson and his running mate is Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.

The announcement comes after the Lacson-Sotto tandem announced that former Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista has also been removed from their senatorial line-up.

“Senator Sherwin Gatchalian and ex-Mayor Herbert Bautista have made their choices of the principles and advocacies that they will embrace moving forward in this political exercise. Obviously, they are not ours,” Lacson said in a tweet on Thursday.  

“They now cease to be part of the Lacson-Sotto team.”

Both Gatchalian and Bautista were present at the proclamation rally of presidential bet Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan on Tuesday. Ronald Espartinez
