PDP-LABAN: Next president must continue Duterte agenda of change

The Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) on Tuesday said it will endorse the presidential candidate who would continue the legacy programs of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Party president Alfonso Cusi said PDP-Laban would support the candidate who will pursue Duterte’s agenda of change, stressing that the elections should be issue-based and not personality-based.

“What the country needs now, especially during this time of the pandemic, is a presidential candidate who will continue the tapang at malasakit (courage and compassion) brand of leadership of President Duterte that the people want,” Cusi said.

He particularly noted that the Build, Build, Build, Free Education, Universal Health Care, Free Irrigation, Barangay Development Program (BDP), and the whole-of-nation approach to end local communist armed conflict are Duterte’s legacy programs that Filipinos want to continue.

On January 21, PDP-Laban’s national executive committee announced it will back up vice-presidential bet Sara Duterte “based on her credentials, advocacies and vision for our nation” but did not mention yet who it will support for president. READ MORE
