AIM to strengthen support for Isko
THE Aksyon Demokratiko party of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso got a big boost with the formal designation of the Alliance for Isko Movement (AIM) as the multi-sectoral arm of the political party founded by Sen. Raul Roco.
Moreno, president of Aksyon Demokratiko, and AIM president Freddie Go signed the Memorandum of Cooperation in simple ceremonies held at the Manila City this week and was witnessed by Aksyon Demokratiko chairperson Ernest Ramel and AIM chairman Bong Ignacio.
Also present during the signing were conveners, officers and chapter coordinators of the sectoral alliance group.
Go said the AIM fully supports Moreno because they sincerely believe in his strong potential to effectively lead the country in this challenging times.
“Kami ay naniniwala sa kakayahan, kagalingan at karanasan ni Mayor Isko Moreno bilang isang lider na nararapat lamang na maging Pangulo ng ating bansa,” Go said.
Moreno thanked and encouraged AIM to continue increasing its ranks as it endeavors to convince more Filipinos to support his presidential bid, as well as those of his running mate, Dr. Willie Ong and Aksyon Demokratiko senatorial bets Carl Balita, Samira Gutoc and Jopet Sison..
AIM is a volunteer group made up of individuals and organizations supporting Moreno’s “Buhay at Kabuhayan” agenda. The group has chapters and members across the country that are actively gathering and solidifying support for Moreno to ensure his victory in the 2022 elections.
AIM’s goal is to further enhance and strengthen the support for Moreno’s presidential bid and encourage non-politicians to join Aksyon Demokratiko.
It is expected that more groups will join the “Isko Moreno bandwagon” and show their support for the 47-year-old local chief executive in the rundown to the May elections.
Just recently, a large group of volunteers that had earlier mobilized to support an Isko Moreno-Manny Pacquiao tandem has decided to throw its full support behind Moreno.
MP Nation, which has coordinators in 78 provinces, 120 cities, 1,109 municipalities, and more than 35,000 barangays is now IM4P or Isko Moreno for President Movement.
Bagong Pnoy, a group that helped former President Noynoy Aquino, is now also allied with IM Pilipinas, a mass-based volunteer group led by former Undersecretary Tim Orbos.
Other groups that had earlier expressed support for Moreno’s candidacy include the Cebu-based PRIMO-ISKO (President Isko Moreno – Isulong ang Serbisyo sa Katawhan nga Organisado), Kapampangans for Isko, Isko Northern Alliance (INA), Seniors para kay Isko, Isko Tayo Kabataan (ITK), the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army (CPLA).
Pilipinas God First United Bangsamoro Isko for President (PGFUBIP) coalition, Muntinlupa Isko Supporters, Truck Drivers of the Philippines Party List, and the Federation of Quezon City Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association, among others.
