PRESIDENTIAL candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. and his running-mate vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio have asked officials in Pampanga to work together in the upcoming elections and beyond.
Marcos and Duterte were the principal guests at Vice Governor Lilia Pineda’s birthday celebration.
The event, which was attended by local officials, senators, and other notable politicians, was held at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center and the Kingsborough International Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.
Barangay officials, barangay health workers, and barangay workers also graced the program.
According to the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer, their unification campaign is already spreading, when it merely started with a whisper, it is now manifesting and very visible in every area the formidable tandem visited.
"Nakakatuwa na ang aming sinisigaw na pagkakaisa ay lumalawak na, nagsimula lamang sa isang bulong na ngayon ay nakikita na sa bawat lugar na aming pinupuntahan namin ni Mayor Sara,” said Marcos.
"Ngayon araw na ito nagsimula na ang pagkakaisa, nakita na sa inyong lalawigan kaya dapat ipagpatuloy natin itong ating nasimulan hindi lamang ngayon hanggang pagkatapos ng eleksyon,” he added.
Duterte also asked them to support their advocacies in case she and Marcos are given the mandate in the upcoming elections in May.
“Simulan po natin sa pagbalik ng trabaho na nawala dahil sa pandemya. Pangalawa ang pagpapatuloy ng reporma na nasimulan ni Pangulong Duterte, particularly the Build, Build, Build project o infrastructure development spending ng ating bansa, at ‘yung pagsugpo sa krimen at ilegal na droga sa ating komunidad,” said Duterte-Carpio.
“Paano ito masisimulan? Kapag tayo pong lahat ay magkakaisa,” she added. (PR)
