An official from the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) faction led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi stated on Thursday night that the PDP-Laban faction is considering holding joint rallies with the UniTeam alliance of presidential candidate former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Z. Duterte.
After visiting the UniTeam grand rally at the Bian Football Field, Secretary-General Melvin Matibag, who was just appointed as acting Cabinet Secretary, made this revelation in an ambush interview. Both Marcos and Mayor Duterte were there during the rally.
Although Duterte has previously stated that he will remain “neutral” in the presidential race, Matibag believes that there is a “chance” that the President will attend such joint rallies.
“Nag meeting sila…ah kasama ko si Secretary Cusi as president of the party na magkakaroon ng mga rally ang PDP-Laban kung sakaling imbitado na si BBM at si Mayor Inday Sara,” Matibag remarked after attending the UniTeam grand rally on Thursday.
(We already had a meeting. I was with Secretary Cusi as president of the party when we discussed that there will be PDP-Laban rallies inviting BBM and Mayor Inday Sara.)
He stated the joint UniTeam-PDP-Laban rallies could possibly take place in Bulacan, Paranaque, and Nueva Ecija.
“Balak namin una sa Bulacan tapos Parañaque then baka sakali isa pa dito sa Laguna, ah Nueva Ecija and were hoping na makasama din namin si Presidente,” he added.
(We’re planning rallies in Bulacan, Parañaque, and possibly another here in Laguna, as well as Nueva Ecija, and we’re hopeful that the President will be able to join us.)
Matibag said that the UniTeam-PDP-Laban partnership is on good terms.
“Oo maganda ‘yung pag uusap namin. Ang UniTeam at PDP-Laban maganda ang pag-uusap, may mga plano talaga,” he continued.
(Yes, the discussions went well. UniTeam and PDP-Laban have plans in the process.) – WhatALife!
