Manila, Philippines–The National Unity Party reaffirmed its commitment to the supermajority coalition in the House of Representatives, led by Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez.

Former Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto, the National People’s Coalition chairman, also expressed their continued alliance with Romualdez.
“We remain allied with the President and the leadership of Speaker Martin,” Sotto said.
