Organizing a stronger Liberal Party(LP)with the help of the people will ensure that reforms spearheaded by the present administration are sustained, President Benigno S. Aquino III said on Monday.
Speaking during the oath-taking ceremony of the new members of LP here, the President said LP can proudly present party members and leaders who truly served the people and remained loyal to the party.
“Niyaya namin kayo sa partido, salamat po sa pagsapi n’yo sa amin. Hindi tayo nandito ngayon para magpasikat; nandito tayo lahat ngayon para siguraduhing matatag po ang ating plataporma de gobyerno,” the President told the new LP members.
The President stressed that creating a stronger LP will ensure that there will be a new pool of leaders that will serve the people even after he and other senior party leaders bowed out of office.
“Tunay na maninindigan dahil ito po ang tama. Tunay na naniniwala na kaya nating baguhin ang ating nakagisnan. Ang kailangan lang ay mayroong tumayo rito para sa ating lahat at manguna. Yan po ang inaasahan namin sa inyong lahat,” he said referring to the new breed of leaders.
The President noted that it would be regrettable if the reforms initiated by his government will not be sustained. During the event, President Aquino, the Liberal Party chairman, led the mass oath-taking of 300 new LP members in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) at the Benguet State University.
LP officials are committed to advance the party’s political ideology and philosophy to sustainably increase the number of its supporters in advancing the President’s rallying call for a righteous path.
Joining the President during the ceremony were Transportation and Communication Secretary Mar Roxas, Interior and Local Government Secretary Jessie Robredo, House Deputy speaker Erin Tanada and Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat.
The incoming LIberal Party members of the Cordillera Administrative Region are composed of incumbent and local officials and sectoral leaders from the provinces of Ifugao, Benguet, Mountain Province, Abra, Kalinga and Apayao and Baguio City.
