Angara: LDP still allied with Duterte, waiting for who he will endorse for president
MANILA, Philippines — The Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) party is still aligned with the administration as it awaits President Rodrigo Duterte’s announcement on who he will endorse for presidency for the 2022 elections.
“We’re still allied with the administration, so that’s why naghihintay din kami sa sasabihin ni Pangulong Duterte dito sa elections (we’re waiting for what President Duterte will say regarding the elections),” Angara said during the Kapihan sa Manila Bay forum.
“I think he’s still in the process of selecting who he would want to succeed him. Naghihintay din kami (We’re just waiting). We will see, we’ll wait what the President says,” he added.
Angara admitted that LDP was not as huge as it was during the time of his late father, former Senate President Edgardo Angara.
“But that’s really the story of our political parties. They grow, they shrink, they grow, they shrink, depending on who is wielding the reins of power,” Angara said.
Angara said the party is currently focused on local posts over national posts.
