Manila Mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada said on Tuesday that his son, Rector JV Ejercito, did not inform him and did not invite him when he submitted his certificate of candidacy (COC) on Monday.
"Hindi ko alam e. He did not inform me Hindi n & # 39; ya ko inimbita," said Estrada when asked why he did not accompany Ejercito when submitting his COC.
He noticed that he was in the town hall on Monday all day.
Ejercito previously submitted his candidacy to senator under the Nationalist People's Coalition (NPC) after leaving his father's party, Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).
On Tuesday, the mayor accompanied another son, former senator Jinggoy Estrada, when he went to the headquarters of the Commission for Elections (Comelec) in Manila to file his certificate of candidacy (COC).
Jinggoy is looking for a comeback when he submitted his COC for Senator. He will compete against a half-brother Ejercito.
Regarding his relationship with Ejercito after he left his party, Estrada said he was still his son.
"Anak ko siya, Hindi nagbabago," said the mayor.
Estrada also said that JV was free to move to another party, citing that he had the freedom to do something.
