THE National Unity Party (NUP) on Thursday announced its decision endorsing the presidential bid of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP).
“We wish to announce that the National Unity Party(NUP) has decided to endorse the presidential bid of former Senator Bongbong Marcos,” NUP said through the statement issued by Deputy Secretary General and Spokesman Reggie Velasco said.
Velasco recognized Marcos’ campaign for Filipinos to unite, especially in the fight against coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19).
“BBM’s call for unity as the basic strategy for economic recovery, amidst the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and global uncertainties, is consistent and supportive of the NUP’s primary vision of ‘one nation, one future’ as enshrined in the Party constitution,” Velasco said.
“We call upon all our party members to join hands with former Senator Marcos in bringing our country and people to continued prosperity and progress,” Velasco said.
