No less than President Rodrigo Duterte will lead start of a national roadshow for the BAGO tandem (Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa for President and Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go for Vice President) of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) for the 2022 elections.
The faction led by party president Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi iPDP-Laban will fire the starting gun to kick off the event in Iligan City on Saturday, October 16.
“It would be like a political rally that would include acknowledgment and raising of the hands of our official candidates in local posts, new members would take their oath and everyone would be given a chance to give their commitment to support the candidates of the party,” Melvin Matibag, party secretary-general, said on Friday.
Duterte in the event expected to be attended by some 250 local candidates, officials and leaders of PDP-Laban, will endorse the party’s local candidates, said Manubag.
