Aquino urges LP partymates to support his administration


President Benigno S. Aquino III called on his party-mates at the Liberal Party to continue to support him in his efforts to move the country forward, propel the economy, and improve the lives of the Filipino people.

In his keynote address at the 65th Founding Anniversary of the Liberal Party on Wednesday at the Club Filipino in San Juan City, the Chief Executive speaking in Pilipino, said that the Liberal Party’s vision and duty to give the people a government committed to freedom, democracy, and to the improvement of the people’s quality of life, especially the poor and the disadvantaged, is now the biggest challenge his administration faces as well as that of the party.

“I am asking for your support not only as the President but as a party-mate…I consider myself your brother,” the President said.

With the new leadership coming from the Liberal Party, the President noted that the people can now dream of a better life and this, he stressed, is his biggest challenge ---to make this dream a reality.

“This is not an easy task. This is the challenge that we all face,” he said.

He added that with the help of the Liberal Party, this dream can now be realized saying that a Liberal Party member does not make empty promises and that the welfare of the majority is his foremost concern.

The President further said that changes and reforms can be implemented if there is integrity in the leadership, and “if there is integrity, the trust of the people and the whole world can be regained.”

“If there is national integrity, investments will pour in and there will be economic progress, the President said.

The President stressed that the country is now on the path to progress and development as there are many interested investors to do business in the country. He cited Coca-cola, Pfizer, Hewlett-Packard, Nestle Hanjin and IBM as among those companies expanding their businesses in the country.
He also said that as President, he has to make difficult decisions such as the fare hike in the LRT and MRT, which he said, is necessary so that funds saved will be used to enhance basic social services that will benefit more people and not only those in Metro Manila.

“Lahat po ito—ang pag-akit sa mga investor, ang pagpapakita ng tibay ng loob sa harap ng mahihirap na desisyon—ay nasa ilalim ng mas malawak na agenda natin para sa makatarungan at pantay-pantay na lipunan. Sa administrasyong Liberal, walang laglagan, walang maiiwan, mahirap o mayaman, nasa poder o karaniwang mamamayan,” he said.

The President also asked his partymates in Congress to support his administration’s legislative agenda adding that he presided over a full cabinet meeting on Monday to finalize the priority measures he will ask Congress to approve.

He also asked the local government officials to continue supporting him specifically in the implementation of programs and projects in the grassroots.

“Iyan po ang ibig sabihin ng pagka-Liberal, mula pa ng panahon ng mga nagtaguyod nito, hanggang sa henerasyon ng aking ama, hanggang sa araw ng aking panunumpa, hanggang sa ngayong taumbayan na mismo ang nagpakita ng pakikiisa sa atin pong agenda. Iyan po ang kinakatawan ng lideratong inihalal natin ngayon (This is what makes a Liberal Party member, since the party’s inception up to the present). (PCOO/PIA9-BST)
