“We have organized a steering committee, we will then go and make our alliances with the different parties,” said Marcos in his speech. 

“Of course, Lakas, NPC, NUP are there … especially in the House. But of course we need to speak to the governors, they have their own local parties,” he added. 

Lakas-CMD is currently the ruling party in the House of Representatives. Marcos’ cousin, House Speaker Martin Romualdez, is the President of Lakas-CMD. 

Marcos said that he has already spoken to the leaders of other parties, who appear to be willing to collaborate for the coming elections. 

However, he did not specify which parties he has already spoken to.
