Under the new administration, the PDP-Laban appeals for unity.

MANILA – On Tuesday, the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) urged the public to remain united and support the future administration’s progress and development.

Alfonso Cusi, head of the PDP-Laban and Energy Secretary, made the demand while praising the “peaceful and orderly” conduct of the May 9 national and local elections.

“Congratulations to the Filipino people for a generally calm and orderly election,” Cusi wrote on the official Facebook page of the PDP-Laban.

Cusi stressed the importance of keeping President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s pledge of transformation by calling for unity.

“Congratulations to the winners,” he continued, “and we urge everyone to now focus on working together for the common good.”

Duterte is scheduled to leave office on June 30.

Duterte, the chairman of the People’s Democratic Party-Laban, did not endorse a presidential candidate, but his party indicated support for former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., who is leading the partial and unofficial presidential vote count.

The PDP-Laban also endorsed vice presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Sara “Inday” Duterte, who is now leading the vice presidential race by a significant margin.

Salvador Panelo and Rey Langit, both PDP-Laban Senate candidates who failed to make the top 12 in the senatorial elections, have already acknowledged their defeat and pledged to back Marcos and Duterte.

Meanwhile, according to the unofficial vote tally of poll monitor Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting, PDP-Laban senatorial candidate Robin Padilla defeated his opponents and led the race to the Senate.

The PDP-other Laban’s senatorial candidates, Astra Pimentel and Greco Belgica, did not make it to the Senate’s “Magic 12.”
