This early, President Duterte’s political celebration is gearing up for the 2019 senatorial elections.
Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III not too long ago introduced plans to subject a complete senatorial slate that will embrace candidates who’re unknown but supportive of the PDP-Laban celebration’s program of presidency. Pimentel is the president of the ruling celebration.
“Ang balak ko sa 2019, tayo’y magpapatakbo ng complete slate sabi ko kahit hindi sikat, kahit hindi sikat basta importante naniniwala sa idelohiya ng PDP-Laban,” Pimentel stated earlier than an meeting of latest celebration recruits from Masbate. “Tutulungan naman ng Presidente Duterte. Papanalunin dapat natin,” he stated.
Pimentel admitted having issue convincing different senators to assist the proposed federalism. He hoped the scenario will change as soon as like-minded senators from PDP-Laban are elected.
“Ipakita natin ang lakas ng partido. We will be a vote-delivering machine as a party so hindi kailangan ng popularity to win. What is important is the belief in the party principles and program of government,” he stated.
