PDP Laban president Alfonso Cusi on Tuesday said that the ruling party’s endorsement will boost the candidacies of former senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
“It will be a positive development, it will be an addition, there is a value to it…na makatutulong sa pagtataas ng…to convince the people to vote for the tandem,” Cusi said during an interview with Daily Tribune’s News On Cue.
The ruling party issued a resolution formally endorsing Marcos’ presidential bid.
“The party has a process, and we have to really do the consultation and the listening and tinanong namin, ano ba talaga. Kaya nga ang sabi ko may proseso, it is not just a decision of one person,” Cusi added.
At the same time, Cusi called on PDP Laban party members to support Marcos and Duterte.
“We are into this together and kailangan pagtulungan natin ito, tumulong tayo. I know BBM is not a member of the PDP but he is the nearest to the programs of PDP kaya sumusuporta tayo,” he added.
“We are glad the PDP Laban has joined the bandwagon of support for the BBM-Sara UniTeam of major political parties in the country. It is truly reassuring, but at the same time challenging us to be even more prepared and vigilant in light of growing rumors of possible poll fraud in the coming elections,” according to Atty. Vic Rodriguez, chief of staff and spokesperson of Marcos.
