SENATOR JINGGOY ESTRADA shot down the proposal of his half-brother Cong. JV Ejercito to form a “super coalition” between the Liberal Party and the United Nationalists Alliance for next year’s midterm elections. It would really be difficult for Joseph Estrada to coalesce his PMP with LP; he couldn’t even unite Jinggoy and JV.
