House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, who led the mass oathtaking of about 13,000 new Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan members in Negros Occidental yesterday, rallied their forces to support President Rodrigo Duterte amid what he called moves to derail the administration's efforts to bring about change.
He also called on the new PDP Laban members to back the senatorial candidates of PDP-Laban in 2019, who would include representatives Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3 rd District) and Geraldine Roman (Bataan, 1 st District) to ensure the ruling party will dominate the Upper Chamber.
