MANILA, Philippines — A “possible alliance” may be brewing between the revived political party Partido Reporma and the PDP-Laban faction of Senator Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao met with Davao del Norte 1st District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, who serves as the president of the Partido Reporma, on Wednesday afternoon.

“We are all praying to have leaders that Filipinos need to help solve our problems amid the pandemic,” Alvarez added.

Also attending the meeting were PDP-Laban national executive director Ron Munsayac and Partido Reporma secretary-general and Davao del Norte governor Edwin Jubahib.

Partido Reporma is fielding the tandem of Senator Panfilo Lacson and Senate President Vicente Sotto III as their presidential and vice presidential candidate in next year’s national elections.

Lacson and Sotto have officially launched their bid for the 2022 elections on September 8.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao has yet to announce his political plans for next year as he faces the infighting within the PDP-Laban, which has earlier nominated Senator Bong Go and President Rodrigo Duterte as their presidential and vice president presidential candidates.

The infighting within PDP-Laban has resulted in two factions forming—one headed by Pacquiao and another by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi. The latter supports the Go-Duterte tandem.
