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.

Senator Sonny Angara, the party’s president, made the remark Wednesday as Duterte remains mum on who he wants to succeed him amid the upcoming 2022 national 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.

FEATURED STORIES

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.
