Stay away, Pimentel tells ‘rogue elements’
Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III on Saturday asked “rogue elements” claiming to be from the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) to stop claiming to be legitimate members of the ruling party after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) recognized Pimentel’s group as the real PDP-Laban.
Another group led by Rodolfo Garcia, a classmate of President Rodrigo Duterte, claimed to be the legitimate PDP-Laban.
The President had met with the two groups a few months ago, but had not united them.
