‘Be like Rizal, love your country’ – Partido Liberal to millennials

Jose Rizal was a “millennial” of his time. He was 25 when he published Noli Me Tangere, a novel that described the ills for the cancerous colonial Philippine society toward the end of the 19th century. He was 30 when he published El Filibusterismo, the follow-up to his first novel that prescribed societal cures. Even […]

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE OF PARTIDO LIBERAL PRESIDENT SEN. FRANCIS PANGILINAN ON CHRISTMAS 2017

Ang Pasko ay isang pagkakataon para makasama ang mga mahal sa buhay: panahon para magsama-sama at magkumustahan ang mga mag-anak na matagal nang hindi nakakapiling; panahon para magdiwang kasama ang pamilya at malalapit na kaibigan, at makapagtagay para sa taon-taon pang samahan. Hindi mawawala sa tahanang Pinoy ang tradisyunal na Noche Buena, kahit gaano pa […]

On Zero Budget Issue (Statement of Partido Liberal President Senator Kiko Pangilinan and Party Secretary General Rep. Kit Belmonte)

For 2018, Congress passed a P3.767-trillion budget. In a democracy, that budget is of, for, and by the people. Galing sa tao, para sa tao, at pinamamahalaan para sa tao. Ibig sabihin galing sa buwis ng tao, para sa mga proyektong pakikinabangan ng tao, at itatalaga ng mga kinatawan ng tao, ng mga congressman. That’s […]

Partido Liberal statement on Revolutionary Government

We mark the 154th birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio, one of the country’s most revered freedom fighters, against the backdrop of talks of a revolutionary government under this administration. Such talks or threats by top government officials cheapen the gallantry and sacrifices of our heroes, who have fought for self-determination and social order, freedom and […]

STATEMENT OF PARTIDO LIBERAL ON CHARGES FILED VS FORMER PRESIDENT AQUINO

It is unthinkable for then President Benigno Aquino III to make a decision that would endanger the lives of our policemen and soldiers, or parade them helpless in the firing line. No President, or any father of the nation, would do that. We maintain that President Aquino, after thorough consultation with officials, only did what […]

Nananawagan din tayo […]

Statement of Partido Liberal on Administration’s ‘Horror Stories’

Linking Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon and former Secretary Mar Roxas to illegal drugs is the administration’s tactic to run away from their own horror stories. The country was petrified by the easy entry of the P6.4 billion worth of shabu through the Bureau of Customs amid the government’s intensified campaign against illegal drugs. Thousands […]
