26 March 2022

Presidential frontrunner Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr said the experience of the members of the National Unity Party in the private and public sector will be a big help for the country that is still recovering from the pandemic.

During a private meeting at Pasay City, Marcos thanked NUP for endorsing his candidacy and his running mate Inday Sara.

"The NUP has been constant and if they choose to go down this road, together with UniTeam, together with myself and Sara, then it must be a good thing to do. Your endorsement and support is particularly important," Marcos said.

"If we start working together, it's very influential decision on the party's part because people will see very clearly that these are the people that do not jump back and forth," he added.

Marcos said legislators play an important role in any administration.

"Any administration, any president, any leader, any cabinet is going to need the help certainly of the legislator. We will need the understanding of the legislator on what they are trying to do and why does this things we are trying to do are in fact to the advantage of the ordinary Filipino," he said.

"All of you are very experienced, you all know your parochial interest, you also have a very good idea on national interest. I think you will agree with me that you will have to go to basics and fix the bones and the tendons of the economy so that private sector can build upon it," he said.

The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer said he sees robust and efficient partnership with private and public sector that will further be boost by the business experiences of the NUP members.

He added that their familiarity at the grassroot level is also a key factor in assuring a better life for Filipinos.

Marcos also said the earlier endorsement of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino- Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and other influential parties showed that political forces are now embracing the UniTeam's call for unity.

"We can see the confluence of political forces coming together. Yung aming sinisigaw na pagkakaisa ay mukhang nasimulan na natin and for that I thank you all and I sincerely believe that this is the necessary first step for us to come back and to be better than we were before," he said.

"I look forward to working with all of you as we have work together before. I know it will be highly productive, highly important and very useful and very helpful to the lives of each Filipinos and for the betterment of the Philippines," he added.

BBM: NUP malaki ang maitutulong sa mas mabilis na pag-ahon ng bansa

ANG matagal ng karanasan ng mga miyembro ng National Unity Party pagdating sa larangan ng pampubliko at pribadong sektor ay magiging malaking tulong para sa bansang patuloy pa ring umaahon sa problemang dulot ng pandemiya, ayon kay presidential frontrunner Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr.

Sa isang pribadong pagpupulong sa Pasay City, nagpasalamat si Marcos sa NUP sa pag-endorso nito sa kanilang kandidatura ni Inday Sara Duterte.

"The NUP has been constant and if they choose to go down this road, together with UniTeam, together with myself and Sara, then it must be a good thing to do. Your endorsement and support is particularly important," sabi ni Marcos.

"If we start working together, it's very an influential decision on the party's part because people will see very clearly that these are the people that do not jump back and forth" dagdag pa nito.

Para kay Marcos, malaki ang ginagampanang tungkulin ng mga mambabatas sa bawat administrasiyon.

"Any administration, any president, any leader, any cabinet is going to need the help certainly of the legislator. We will need the understanding of the legislator on what they are trying to do and why does this things we are trying to do are in fact to the advantage of the ordinary Filipino," wika niya.

Ayon sa standard-bearer ng Partido Federal ng Pilipinas, nakikita niya ang malaki at epektibong pagtutulungan sa pagitan ng pampubliko at pribadong sektor na mas palalakasin pa ng karanasan pagdating sa pagni-negosyo ng mga miyembro ng NUP.

Dagdag pa niya, ang kaalaman ng mga mambabatas sa kanilang mga nasasakupan ay malaking tulong din upang mas mapabuti ang buhay ng mga Pilipino.

"We can see the confluence of political forces coming together. Yung aming sinisigaw na pagkakaisa ay mukhang nasimulan na natin and for that I thank you all and I sincerely believe that this is the necessary first step for us to come back and to be better than we were before," sabi niya.
