THE UNITED Nationalist Alliance (UNA) has decided to suspend all political talks for Elections 2022.

UNA President and Senator Nancy Binay said due to the continues surge of COVID-19 pandemic and with the unfolding of another wave of infections brought by new variants that may likely compromise public health and cripple healthcare institutions, their party decided to put on hold all matters concerning alliances, coalitions, and other political activities.

“Amid the atmosphere of ‘Elections 2022’, UNA finds it cold and insensitive to put on the table any electoral agenda while our people are experiencing uncertainties in the wake of the growing Delta variant cases in country.” Binay said in a statement.

The lady senator said politics is aggravating a public health issue and also hampering the level of response.

“This is why UNA would rather put a high premium in ensuring the health and safety of the people than concern itself with 2022,” Binay added.

“For this reason, UNA has decided to suspend all talks in connection with the 2022 National Elections until further notice so that the Party can help and focus well in fighting the pandemic,” she further said.
