Six of nine campaign promises made by the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) have already been fulfilled, its president, Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, said, as the party marked its 36th anniversary Tuesday.

“Nine promises, six already fulfilled, all done within one year and a half of a six-year term! What a way to start a term! We did it because of team work,” Pimentel during his speech at the event.

Pimentel added that the PDP-Laban is also now working to fulfill its promise to bring peace in Mindanao through the Bangsamoro Basic Law, end contractualization, and shift the country’s form of government to federal.
