A FEW days after the ruling PDP-Laban’s declaration of support to the candidacy of presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr., and running-mate Inday Sara Duterte, their chances of winning in the scheduled May 9 elections were further enhanced after the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) and Reform Party (RP) formally entered into an alliance on Wednesday.
In a simple ceremony at the BBM Headquarters in Mandaluyong City, PFP Secretary General Thompson Lantion and RP president James Layug led the signing of an agreement to be an ally in advancing the BBM-Sara UniTeam.
Layug said among all the current presidential candidates, only BBM-Sara UniTeam has a sincere response for continuity, sustainability and predictability in the successful programs of the Duterte administration.

The National Unity Party (NUP) on Thursday announced its decision endorsing the presidential bid of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP).
“We wish to announce that the National Unity Party(NUP) has decided to endorse the presidential bid of former Senator Bongbong Marcos,” NUP said through the statement issued by Deputy Secretary General and Spokesman Reggie Velasco said.
Velasco recognized Marcos’ campaign for Filipinos to unite, especially in the fight against coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19).
“BBM’s call for unity as the basic strategy for economic recovery, amidst the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and global uncertainties, is consistent and supportive of the NUP’s primary vision of ‘one nation, one future’ as enshrined in the Party constitution,” Velasco said.
“We call upon all our party members to join hands with former Senator Marcos in bringing our country and people to continued prosperity and progress,” Velasco said. With Blessie Amor Vicente and Joanne Rosario (OJTs)
