Remember then-president Benigno Aquino III’s joke that your complete Liberal Party (LP) membership used to suit inside a Volkswagen?
Ifugao lone district Rep. Teddy Baguilat stated Friday (April 21) that LP is aware concerning the get together’s additional shrinking following the May 2016 polls whereby it was dislodged as the highest political faction within the nation.
“We hope that whatever the decision maybe, we will still have the remaining LPs in the House staying in the party,” stated Baguilat, who belongs to the opposition within the House of Representatives (HOR).
It was reported early Friday that the LP members within the Supermajority met with get together interim chairman, Vice President Leni Robredo to debate their rapid future within the present political panorama.
Of the 32 LP members within the HOR, 27 are with the Majority or Supermajority. The remaining 5, Baguilat included, type the opposition bloc.
The LP entered a renaissance section of types throughout Aquino’s tenure in Malacañang from 2010 to 2016. At that point, the variety of LP politikos within the HOR swelled to over 100.
Then, following Rodrigo Duterte’s emphatic win in final yr’s elections, LP members started to defect to his get together, the PDP-Laban.
