Vice-presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has resumed the chairmanship of Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) after she took her oath on Thursday, November 19.

In a statement sent to reporters, HNP Secretary-General Anthony Del Rosario ensures that the young Duterte’s move does not contradict any law.

“Mayor Sara’s re-appointment as our Chairperson became possible as both parties’ Constitution and By-Laws do not prohibit membership and appointment as officer since HNP is a regional political party,” Del Rosario said.

The group also expressed its gratitude to Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) for accepting and supporting Mayor Sara.

“Last November 11, Mayor Sara officially became a member of Lakas-CMD, and was humbly offered their Party’s chairmanship, which she accepted yesterday,” Del Rosario said.

“We are very grateful for the enormous trust and opportunity afforded by Lakas-CMD to Mayor Sara, whom we describe as one of the country’s best political women leaders of her time,” he added.

Del Rosario further said that having Mayor Sara as chairperson of both HNP and Lakas-CMD will forge them a solid coalition.

“Lastly, Mayor Sara’s role as concurrent chairperson of both HNP and Lakas-CMD will further strengthen the alliance between the two parties. An alliance that will promote a strong people-centered development throughout Davao Region and the Philippines,” Del Rosario said. —/mbmf

Mayor Sara hopes solid support for BBM-Sara Uniteam following Go’s withdrawal from prexy race

Maris Federez   •   December 2, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Vice-presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said that she is hoping for stronger support for her and presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. with the withdrawal of Senator Christopher ‘Bong’ Go from the race in the 2022 national elections.

In a statement, Mayor Sara said she is hoping that Senator Bong Go’s withdrawal will push for the continuing steps for unity among leaders and supporters.

“Now that Sen. Bong Go has declared his withdrawal from the presidential race and to quote him, ‘for the sake of unity among our supporters and leaders’, tuloy-tuloy na po tayo sa ating pagkakaisa kasama ang BBM-Sara Uniteam upang tayo ay magtagumpay sa ating hangarin para sa bansa,” she said.

Meanwhile, senatorial aspirant Antonio Trillanes IV said that whether or not the BBM-Sara tandem benefits from Senator Go’s withdrawal of candidacy will not affect Vice President Leni Robredo.

“Kasi maaaring lumakas din naman si Isko. Pero hindi rin naman makakaapekto kay VP Leni either way. So, we will just wait for the next survey,” Trillanes said.

The former senator also pointed out that BBM-Sara Uniteam alliances with former administrations will be favorable for the opposition.

“Yung pagsasanib pwersa nila Arroyo, Estrada, Marcos, pati nina Duterte, pabor yan sa oposisyon dahil liliwanag sa mga kababayan natin yung mga iniluwa na ng lipunan eh yun yung mga nagsasama sama,” he said.

On the other hand, the team-up of Senator Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson and Senate President Vicente Sotto III said that even if they will not get the endorsement of President Rodrigo Duterte, they will continue the good programs that the present administration has started.

“Ke endorse, ke hindi, talagang yung magagandang programa dapat ituloy. Lalo na yung ‘Build, Build, Build’,” Lacson said. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)
