Prior to announcing her candidacy, there was hardly any talk about her political plans.
A Philippine Star report revealed that she was inducted into the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats’ party (Lakas-CMD) only a day before the official filing of the Certificate of Candidacy (COC) commenced.
Both Arci's and Alvin's Certificate of Nomination and Acceptance (CONA) papers were signed by the party's executive director, Pey Velasco.
House Majority Floorleader and Lakas-CMD party president, Martin Romualdez, called Arci and Alvin as the party's assets.
Manila Bulletin quoted Rep. Romualdez saying that their act of casting their lot with Lakas-CMD is enough proof that the two have great confidence in the party, as well as its principles.
“We regard these dedicated public servants as assets of the Lakas-CMD party. Their decision to join the Lakas-CMD party is not just a proof of their confidence in us but also of the party’s clean and efficient record of public service,” said House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez, the party’s president.
Other celebrities became members of Lakas-CMD include veteran actress Alma Moreno, Comedian-actor Dexter "Teri Onor" Dominguez, Nash Aguas, Claudine Barretto, Bobby Andrews, Javi Benitez, Ejay Falcon, and Angelu de Leon.
