Because of its sheer power, influence, number strength and capacity to make or unmake (politically), the Liberal Party (LP) in Capiz has been in the limelight –or shall we say, focus of attention of people.
These are people who are in politics, are concerned electorate, are aspiring to become politicians and just plain observers who admire the might and cohesiveness of the local LP family and how it has influenced local political affairs.
Because of their tremendous and self-earned influence, the Liberal candidates led by their leaders Senator Mar Roxas and his mother Judy have dominated local political contests as a team, at least during the last 20 years (referring to contemporary times).
How the party has done this is something that many people know but now some people want to exploit for, of course, political reasons.
The twist in the long-running LP dominance could happen following the declaration by Sen. Mar that he is available for the 2010 presidential race versus other political heavyweights.
This is now one of the reasons why his perceived opponents are out to weaken his own political base in order to rock his boat into the election period, so to speak.
How the LP can manage to stay strongly intact for Sen. Mar’s presidential campaign is something that people are interested to know. They as: Can the Liberals stay together behind Mar? Or will they go their own separate ways for their own personal interests and their own presidential bets of choice other than the debonair and highly qualified “rising star.”
