San Pablo City—Maintaining its position to remain as a tool for awareness and a movement to raise consciousness among voter citizens in the coming national elections in 2010, the Movement for Goood Governance  (MGG) convenors refused to support  any candidate for the coming elections despite proddings from participants and media personnel for the group to be truthful and transparent.

Celia Conducto-Lopez, national coordinator of the Movement, told reporters on Monday’s press conference here that  the MGG would not fill any candidate for any political positions but it supports candidates who may have the potentials of promoting good leadership and governance.

Lopez mentioned some few Political leaders worth emulating namely: Governor Fr. Among Ed Panlilio of Pampanga, Governor Grace Padaca of Nueva Ecija and the like.

Dr. Tomas Meneses, educator and businessman and spokesperson of the MGG on his part admitted that Makati City mayor Jejomar Binay was an old friend being a fellow former street parliamentarian and has good qualities as a leader, he did not categorically state that the movement supports him as candidate for any political position.

Lopez, clarified that as a Movement, there is no official declaration that any candidate is being groomed for 2010.
