Q: Sir may report na kumalas na raw sa coalition yung NP sa LP at bumuo ng alyansa sa PDP to support Duterte, can you confirm that sir?
A: We have been in talks about that for some time now. I will not preempt the party for any announcement that they will have to make. All that I am prepared to say right now is to say that we have been in talks not only with the PDP but also with the other parties and other groups, not necessarily formal parties.
Pero yung coalition sa LP was very informal and medyo hindi siguro palagay ko masasabi na, it was nevery really enforced properly kasi hung halalan ng 2013 yung mga kandidato ng Nacionalista nilagyan pa rin ng kalaban ng Liberal. So parang hindi talaga natuloy yung coalition in a very strict sense. All of the announcement that the Nacionalista Party will make, I will not preempt the party so I will let the party spokesman to make those announcements when the time is right.

“The INC certainly has the right to stage a peaceful mass action to express their sentiments in defense of their faith.
The DOJ’s handling of the case leaves much to be desired. Instead of allowing the legal process to take its course, DOJ secretary Leila de Lima immediately held a press con to discuss the merits of the case. This created the impression, rightly or wrongly, of undue interest in the case.
For justice to triumph, the DOJ must not only be impartial in its procedure and ruling; like Caesar’s wife, it must also be seen as being fair to all.”

Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. yesterday reiterated the need to completely destroy the firearms of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) as part of the peace process.
Marcos, chairman of the Senate committee on local government hearing the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law, made the statement on ANC even as the Senate failed to begin interpellation on the substitute bill for the BBL because of the senator’s absence in the plenary.
“Can you imagine if there are thousands of thousands of arms stored there? Is there someone guarding those weapons? There is a danger that someone might steal those guns. The best solution might be to destroy them so that it cannot go back. This stems from the very simple idea that if there are no arms, there is no war,” Marcos told ANC’s “Headstart.” Read More…
