• Lakas-CMD adopts Marcos as VP candidate


    BAGUIO CITY: The vice presidential bid of Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. got a big boost after the Lakas ng Tao-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD) Party on
    Thursday formally adopted him as their candidate for the May 9 polls.

    At the plenary of the party held at the Manila Golf Club in Makati City (Metro Manila), Marcos was nominated by former Surigao del Sur Rep. Prospero Pichay.

    The nomination was seconded by Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado and by lawyer Raul Lambino, the Lakas-CMD’s acting secretary general.

    Delegates approved the motion without any objection and abstention.

    “The choice for Vice President was unanimous, meaning no one objected,” said Lambino, adding that the party will deliver to Marcos at least three million votes.

    “It is a big honor to be adopted. I am deeply humbled by your support, by one of the most vibrant parties today,” Marcos said.

    He told party members that his message of unity is reaping fruits as shown by the Lakas-CMD adoption.

    The party’s president, Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez, called on his party mates to unite behind the candidacy of Marcos and work hard for their respective victories in the local and national elections next month.

    Other prominent party members who attended the assembly were Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla, former Quezon province congressman Danilo Suarez and former Maguindanao congressman Didagen Dilangalen.

      • O eh di sumanib ka sa kultong dilaw na wala naman nagawa parasa tao kundi mangulimbat din. Siguro nga hindi mo nararanasan ang mga pahirap ni abnoy sa araw-araw, hindi ka sumasakay sa PUVs, hindi ka bumibili ng bigas at hindi ka lumalabas sa bahay mo dahil kung hindi nakikita mo ang kalagayan ng bansa. Mabuhay ka.
