MANILA, Philippines — Veteran broadcast journalist and former Vice President Noli De Castro will take oath as a member of Aksyon Demokratiko on Thursday.
This was confirmed to INQUIRER.net by Ernest Ramel, the party’s secretary general.
“Not yet, but he’s about to,” Ramel told INQUIRER.net in a phone interview when asked to confirm if De Castro already took his oath.
Ramel said De Castro will take his oath at the Manila City Hall with presidential aspirant and Manila mayor Isko Moreno, who is also the president of the party.
Earlier, De Castro bid farewell to his radio program in Teleradyo to seek his senatorial bid.
De Castro, who served as vice president from 2004 to 2010, will return to politics after an 11 year break, this time as a senator.
He topped the senatorial elections in 2001, garnering more than 16 million voters.
