THE alliance of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) and the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) is a partnership among equals for the progress of the Philippines, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. said on Saturday.

“We witnessed another breakthrough today in the history of politics and public service in our nation with this alliance of the PFP and the NPC,” President Marcos said during the signing of the alliance of PFP and NPC at the Makati Diamond Residences in Makati City.

“With the joining of forces, we are no longer individual players in the field of politics but a strong, united front that is determined to actively shape the future of our people,” President Marcos said.

The PFP and NPC are not just two parties aligning with one another, the President said. They are a force that is ready to serve, to bring a better life to the Filipino people, as well as to defy expectations, and to carve out a bright future with promise and potential.

What makes the PFP-NPC alliance durable is that it is a partnership of equals and one anchored on a set of principles, Marcos said, stressing it is not a marriage of convenience, but it is borne out of a need to unite for the greater good.

“We are not joining forces for some narrow electoral objective alone. Of course, the approaching political cycle is an important element and has added impetus to what we are doing,” he pointed out.

“But more than that, it is to continue to collaborate to work on the urgent needs of our people. Our agenda is the nation’s progress. Nothing more, nothing less,” he further stated.

As chairman of the PFP, the President said the commitment of his party and NPC to empower and amplify the voice of every Filipino “is what truly unites us in our mission to revitalize, rejuvenate, and transform our country.”

The President also voiced optimism that through the collaboration, the shared dream of a better Philippines moves closer to reality, echoing the combined voices spread across the archipelago, which serve as a clarion call for all to partake in building the Bagong Pilipinas.

Formed in 2018, the PFP is a national political party in the Philippines chaired by President Marcos.

It coalesced with Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), and Partido ng Masang Pilipino (PMP), and guest candidates from other parties to form the UniTeam Alliance in the run-up to the 2022 national polls where the President won by a landslide.

The NPC was founded in 1992 by the late Eduardo “Danding” Cojuangco. PCO
