Dares Butch Belgica to stop sowing intrigues

THE Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) on Saturday slammed Butch Belgica of Pederalismo ng Dugong Dakilang Samahan (PDDS) for allegedly sowing intrigues after he accused allies of President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte of conspiring against the Chief Executive.

The Lakas-CMD has turned the tables on Belgica, challenging him to stop his alleged dirty politics.

“Mr. Belgica should stop sowing intrigues that divide forces loyal to the President. Itigil na po niya ang maruming pulitika,” the Lakas-CMD said in a statement after Belgica made the claim Friday, a day after Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), and Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) forged a coalition Thursday for the 2022 presidential elections under UniTeam Alliance.

Citing supposed greed for power and without mentioning any names, Belgica said several allies of President Duterte have allegedly undermined the Chief Executive despite helping one of them in the burial of his father while the other one was released from detention.

“Mr. Butch Belgica of PDDS equates years public service by former Presidents as greed for power. He might be speaking based on his own experience. Baka iyon lang po kasi ang nagtutulak kay Mr. Belgica para pumasok sa gobyerno. Greed,” the Lakas-CMD said.

The party also reaffirmed once again its unequivocal support to President Duterte following the baseless accusations of Belgica.

“The Lakas-CMD and its partners in the UniTeam Alliance have made it clear: we are in full support of President Duterte and his administration,” the party said.

Lakas-CMD chairperson and vice presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte has declared that President Duterte is the number one senatorial candidate of her party.
