Over 220 delegates from Liberal Party (LP) chapters from all over the nation attended the party’s online General Assembly to plan for the 2022 elections and engage in a consensus-building exercise for the party’s platform.
In the assembly, the delegates presented resolutions on the party’s stand on economy, human rights, justice system, pandemic response, and poverty alleviation among others. The draft resolutions will be endorsed in the party’s National Executive Council Meeting tomorrow, 28 September 2021.
“Ang lakas ng Partido ay nasa tao, wala sa politiko. Tulad ng sabi ng aming Party President, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, kasama sa pagdedesisyon ang aming mga miyembro,” LP Vice President for Internal Affairs Teddy Baguilat said.
The Liberal Party pivoted to the grassroots in 2017, opening membership to individuals from the grassroots and sectors. Since then, it has grown to 163 chapters and organizing committees with around 16,000 members nationwide.
“We are challenging the people to respond to these issues. We don’t want to limit the debate on personalities. This is why we involve our members in building the platform,” Teddy Lopez, LP Deputy Director General for Education and Formation, said.
