Original Story:

Nacionalista Party (NP) standard bearer Sen. Manny Villar strongly denied that he is giving campaign funds to politicians who are joining his party, stressing that it is an old and recycled issue being hurled against him to derail his presidential bid.

"Such reports that many politicians are joining NP because I am giving them campaign funds are all pure speculations and old gimmicks by my political adversaries who are desperately exerting all efforts to derail my campaign," said Villar in a press statement

Villar issued the denial following the alleged shifting of support to the NP of Bukidnon Governor Jose Zubiri along with his 22 mayors and former Cebu City Mayor Alvin Garcia, a member of the powerful political clan of Cebu. Garcia who expressed support to Villar's candidacy, is seeking the mayoral post of Cebu City in the coming elections.
