Presidential aspirant and Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson vowed to revive the peace talks between the government and insurgency forces if gets elected in the 9 May 2022 elections.

“We will advocate for it. We should not discard or disregard the peace talks because they are still Filipinos. We negotiate with other countries when there’s war so why should we not do it with our fellow countrymen? To say it rightly or wrongly, they were just led astray,” Lacson during the DZBB’s Ikaw Na Ba?: The Presidential interview.

President Rodrigo Duterte formally declared the termination of the peace dialogue with the National Democratic Front-Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (NDF-CPP-NPA) in November 2017 through Proclamation 360.

He later declared CPP-NPA as “terror groups” under Proclamation 273.
