JUST IN: SENATOR PANGILINAN IS NEW ACTING PRESIDENT OF LIBERAL PARTY



Sunday, November 6, the new president of Liberal Party (LP) was appointed to Senator Francis Pangilinan and will hold the position until the next elections.

Pangilinan succeeded ex-acting LP president Joseph Emilio Abaya, former Department of Transportation and Communications chief, and ex-interior secretary Manuel Roxas II.

"Malaking hamon ang paghirang na ito. Alam ko at tinatanggap ang mga tungkuling kaakibat nito. I am humbled by the designation. I realize the weight of the position and I accept the responsibilities it entails. I am responding to this call to serve the people," said Pangilinan.

"Sa mga pagkakataong ganito, nalalaman natin kung sino talaga ang may matibay na pagkaunawa hindi lang sa mga prinsipyo ng partido kundi maging sa mga tungkulin ng isang partidong wala sa poder. We need to work within the current situation to redefine ourselves as a party: How can we as a party work on addressing poverty, joblessness, and the high prices of basic necessities," Pangilinan said.

"We have our individual and collective roles in nation-building. Hindi tayo magiging hadlang sa mabubuting plano at gawain ng Duterte administration para sa bayan, tulad ng kanyang mga anti-poverty programs, pro-labor and massive infrastructure plans, support for farmers and fisher folks, particularly the coco levy bill for coconut farmers, peace-building initiatives, and the focus to develop Mindanao,"Pangilinan added.

Pangilinan also called for unity.

"Magtanim tayo, hindi ng galit o sama ng loob, kundi ng pag-asa at mga polisiya at programang tama para sa bayan. Tapos na ang eleksyon. Palitan na natin ang 'tards' ng 'pards' at 'mards.' Sama-sama tayong kumilos tungo sa isang bansang may malasakit sa kapwa, katarungan, at tunay na kalayaan – kalayaan mula sa kahirapan, katiwalian, at takot," he added.
