Being the first President elected by a majority in recent times, he made history. By leaving a legacy that Filipinos will be proud of for a very long time and by being a wonderful president, I’m sure he has his sights set on additional exceptional things,” Romualdez added.

- The PACMAN Party List The moment has come, according to Rep. Mikee Romero, to support the objectives and aspirations outlined in Marcos Jr.
“We cannot let the Filipino people down if we want to aid in the recovery of our nation from the epidemic, high inflation, and high fuel prices. Our new leader needs our full support! Everyone wins when he succeeds. Romero declared, “We cannot allow him to fail.
Romero specifically recommended setting up the nation’s strategic fuel reserve so that the fuel reserves could be injected into the systems and facilities created with that purpose in mind once fuel prices started to decline and stabilize.
The establishment of an effective commodities market and trading system, including its component storage depots, accountability, and transparency mechanisms, and the commodities exchange, he added, is crucial to the new administration’s goals of achieving food self-sufficiency.
Rep. Bernadette Herrera of the Bagong Henerasyon Party list expressed confidence that the government will pursue effective solutions to address the problems the nation is facing, including Covid-19 and its economic repercussions, unabated fuel price increases, and rising inflation brought on by the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
“We also join the entire country in wishing him luck as he attempts to complete the most difficult task of mending our bitterly divided nation. During his campaign, President Marcos stressed the importance of fostering unity within our country and working across party lines. It’s crucial that he fulfills that pledge, Herrera said.
Herrera expressed excitement for the collaborative efforts of the new administration and the 19th Congress, and she pledged to support efforts to advance “meaningful laws that would benefit our countrymen,” particularly those that would advance the welfare and rights of women and children, strengthen micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and promote consumer protection, an effective internet, and economic recovery.
We wish the incoming Administration success and will do everything in our power to assist our nation in advance, she said.
backing from a large majority
Sonny Angara, a senator, believes that Marcos will take the nation to new heights.
Angara stated in a statement that President Bongbong can be confident of the backing of a strong majority of the country for his policies and plans, many of which have already been laid out in recent weeks, thanks to the votes of over 31 million Filipinos.
He referred to the “strong economic team” Marcos assembled, which is anticipated to build on the accomplishments of the Duterte government and guide the economy toward recovery.
To achieve food security for all Filipinos, Angara continued, “President Marcos has also showed his dedication towards addressing the myriad difficulties of this sector and in raising the yields of our farmers and fisherfolk.”
Angara stated that he is eager to collaborate with both Vice President Sara Duterte and the newly appointed Department of Education Secretary.
In the meantime, Senator Francis Escudero thanked Marcos and urged all Filipinos to back the new government.
“I am one with his purpose to deliver effective and immediate solutions to the problems facing our nation so that we can overcome them,” said Escudero. “Kaisa ako sa hangarin niya na mabigyan ng epektibo at agarang solusyon ang mga pagsubok ng bayan upang tuluyang malampasan natin ito.”
Escudero also believes that political parties may put aside differences in ideology, worldview, and values to “improve the lives of 110 million Filipinos.”
Senator Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s legacy will be carried on by Marcos, Go has declared, with the help of Senator Christopher Lawrence Go.
We will all be able to overcome any obstacles we face now and in the future with you as the new captain of the ship, Go’s statement said. “I am certain that, given your resounding message of unity and rejection of the politics of division,” Go said.
In the face of numerous obstacles, including the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war, Senator Jinggoy Estrada reaffirmed his resolve to team up with President Marcos to help the Filipino people get back to their feet.
“In our long campaign in UniTeam, I saw how Filipinos support you, and I’ve felt how deep your love for our country,” Estrada wrote on social media. “At ramdam ko kung gaano kalalim ang iyong pagmamahal sa ating bansa (I saw how Filipinos support you, and I’ve felt how deep is your love for our country)”
