PBBM rallies allies for PH transformation

MANILA — After posting gains through unified efforts, the government needs to carry out fundamental structural and policy changes to help the nation navigate toward the future, President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said.

Speaking during the alliance signing between the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) and the Lakas-CMD party in Makati City, President Marcos said his government is doing transformative governance.

“Kailangan palitan natin talaga ang patakbo ng pamahalaan. Kailangan natin palitan at pag-isipan, ang ating patakbo ng [pamahalaan], kung saan tayo tutungo. And we have to position the Philippines in a way that will take full advantage of the new economy,” he told party members.

“And to do that, we have to make some very fundamental structural and policy changes. We cannot do those policy changes without the support of the legislature. Legislative support for any policy is absolutely necessary,” he added.

The President pointed out that when he talks about the all-of-government approach, it’s no longer just the executive that is expected to implement programs or to be part of the country’s economic progress and development. That also includes congressional participation that allows the administration to execute current policy changes, underscoring the need for unity to best serve the people, he added.

“Sa nakaraang dalawang taon ay nakita natin na ‘yung pagkakaisa na binuo natin bago pa noong kampanya hanggang sa eleksyon, at noong tayo ay umupo na at nagkakaisa pa rin tayo ay marami tayong nagagawa,” said President Marcos.

“Marami tayong maipakita na pagbabago, marami tayong natutulungan na mga Pilipino, at papunta na nga tayo sa tinatawag nating Bagong Pilipinas.” he added.

Formed in 2018, the PFP is a national political party in the Philippines chaired by President Marcos.

The PFP, Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), Partido ng Masang Pilipino (PMP), and guest candidates from other parties comprised the UniTeam Alliance in the run-up to the 2022 national polls where President Marcos won by a landslide. (PND)
