Gil Cabacungan of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that President Noynoy Aquino has named those who have "a lock on the [administration’s senatorial] slate [for the 2013 polls]." They are Movies and Television Ratings and Classification Board (MTRCB) chair Grace Poe-Llamanzares; former Senator Ramon "Jun" Magsaysay Jr.; former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros; Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr., and Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara.
The report pointed out: "At least one seat has been reserved for the Biazons as the President said the LP has yet to make up its mind whether to field the son (Customs Chief Rufino Biazon) or the father (former Senator and Muntilupa Rep. Rodolfo Biazon)."
The report also added: "Those whose seat reservations have to be confirmed were the President's cousin, Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino; Technical Education and Skills Development Authority chief Joel Villanueva; Quezon Rep. Lorenzo Tanada III; and former Senator Jamby Madrigal."
