Liberal Party leaders assure Aquino of their full support

PDFPrintE-mail

The entire leadership and members of the Liberal Party assured President Benigno S. Aquino III of their full support for his administration’s vision, straight path governance, as well as his plans and programs to uplift the lives of the Filipino people and for the growth and progress of the country.

In a simple gathering marking the 65th anniversary of the Liberal Party at Malacanang’s Heroes Hall on Wednesday night, the party leaders unanimously agreed to support President Aquino’s plans and programs, not only for the good of the party, but for the good of the Filipino people.

In his remarks, Senator Franklin Drilon urged the officers and members of the Liberal Party to “take advantage of the situation when we have the confidence, we have the support of the senate and the entire Filipino people. This is the opportunity for our party to push our programs of government and give our people hope that we have at least the ability to dream for the better future of our country.”

“Indeed, Mr. President you have built such a goodwill that right now you have the Senate which is very supportive of your government and your programs. This does not happen very often. This is my 15th year in the Senate and I have not seen a Senate more cooperative to the administration than you receive today. And that is because they believe in your sincerity, in your leadership, and in your sincere desire to help our people,” Drilon stressed.

For his part, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte said majority of the lawmakers in Congress is very supportive to the President because of his strong goodwill to serve the country.

Belmonte expressed confidence that in the remaining 40 session days of Congress they should be able to pass his priority measures.

“I think, we should hit the ground running. We should be able to make series of headway in terms of enacting the priority measures. Sabi nga nila, let us strike when the iron is hot and ensure that your priority measures will be passed by Congress this year or by the third quarter (of 2011),” Belmonte said.

Other allies, Senator Teofisto Guingona Jr. and Francis Pangilinan told the President that they are willing to help and support his administration.

“So kami ngayon we’re starting the year with this gathering as a show of unity, a show of forcefulness. And kami po sa Senado we are ready for anything (to help you),” both Guingona and Pangilinan said.

Meanwhile, the League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) president and San Fernando City, Pampanga Mayor Oscar Rodriguez reiterated that the mayor’s league is committed to work closely with the Aquino administration in reducing poverty-incidence and ensure the delivery of basic social services in line with his administration’s anti-poverty reduction program under the Millennium Development Goals.

The LCP vows to enjoin cities to implement standards and reform policies and programs of the national government by strictly implementing the Anti-Red Tape Act in their areas.

“Mr. President, the League is your partner in creating a culture of good governance, of transparency and accountability,” Rodriguez said

Rodriguez noted that the Philippine cities will be the “engines of sustainable development, champions of good urban governance and catalysts for nation-building committed to the improvement of the lives of our constituents.”

Governors League of the Philippines national president and Oriental Mindoro Governor Alfonso Umali Jr. said the league has no serious problem right now because the members of the Cabinet particularly the President himself are closely assisting them to fulfill their mandate to their respective constituents.
