Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Presidential candidate became the new Chairperson of the PDP-Laban (Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan).
In a statement PDP-Laban President Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr. said that the Mayor Duterte’s leadership will “inspire and energize” the party’s rank and they “have complete faith in him”.
“Mayor Duterte’s leadership will certainly inspire and energize our party ranks toward realizing an electoral victory this coming May polls.” Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Pimentel as saying.
“We have complete faith in him. Together with his vision, grit, and political will, we will win a better future for our people,” he added.
On the other hand, PDP-Laban spokesperson Lawyer Paola Alvarez said that the candidacy of Mayor Duterte will bring “brave solutions” to the burden of the masses.
“Makakaasa ang taumbayan na ang PDP-Laban sa ilalim ng liderato ni Mayor Duterte ay may matapang na solusyon upang tapusin ang araw-araw na gulo at hirap na dinadanas ng tao. Hindi na pwede ang mga lumang pangako o konting pagbabago na nauuwi pa rin sa gulo. Ang kailangan ng bansa ay tunay na pagbabago,” he said.
