MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano on Monday revealed that he is willing form an alliance with other political parties except for Vice President Jejomar Binay's United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

Cayetano, the secretary-general of the Nacionalista Party (NP), said that he is closing the door to form an alliance with UNA due to corruption issues against the vice president.

The senator said that Binay is the last choice "or not the choice at all... unless he can miraculously clear his name."

Cayetano said that the vice president should face the corruption allegations against him instead of evading the issues.

Only two or three members of the NP are considering joining UNA for the 2016 national elections, Cayetano said. He clarified that he does not decide for the NP.

"We all know that political parties in the Philippines are loose alliances - for friendship and political convenience. It is not really (all) about principles and about platforms," Cayetano said.

Cayetano has earlier said he is open to running for any position for next year's elections.
