Manila, Philippines – Inihain ni Senador Manuel “Lito” Lapid ang isang panukalang batas upang ipangalan kay yumaong Fernando Poe Jr.,  ang Del Monte Avenue sa Quezon City bilang pagkilala sa kontribusyon ng aktor sa sining at pelikula bilang “The King of Philippine Movies.”

Sinabi ni Lapid sa Senate Bill No.1822 na inihain nitong September 4, 2020, na isinagawa ang pagkilos bilang pagkilala kay FPJ sa kanyang legasiya sa big screen kabilang pagiging inspirasyon sa mamamayang Filipino.

“To honor his immense contributions to Philippine culture and the arts and to those Filipino families whose lives were touched by his example, this bill seeks to rename Del Monte Avenue in Quezon City to Fernando Poe, Jr.,”  ayon sa explanatory note ng panukala.

Ayon pa kay Lapid, nakatayo ang Del Monte Avenue ang production company ni FPJ kaya naisulong ang pagpapalit ng pangalan nito para sa kanya.

 “Poe is the father of Senator Grace Poe,”ayon  pa kay Lapid.

Bukod kay Lapid, kasama sa pagiging awtor ng panukala sina Senate President Vicente Sotto III, Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, at Senador Joel  Villanueva, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, Panfilo “Ping” Lacson, Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao, Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan  at Risa Hontiveros.

“Fernando Poe, Jr (FPJ), hailed as the “King of Filipino Movies, or popularly known as FPJ or Da King, was a great icon not only in Philippine movies but also of the Filipino masses,” ayon sa panukala.

Naging bida si FPJ sa  mahigit 3000  pelikula  sa 46-taon nyang movie career,  ilan dito ay siya ang director, producer at sumulat.

“His legacy in the local entertainment industry has left a tremendous amount of inspiration in capturing the socio-economic and political circumstances of the times,” paliwanag pa ng panukala.

Noong Mayo 23,2006,  iginawad kay FPJ ang National Artist of the Philippines for Film.”Having inspired a generation of television and film culture, his role as the “Da King” was born out of real-life experiences.”

“Popular culture through films and movies grew forth from FPJ’s industrious dedication to the craft and to the principle of championing the masses,”  giit pa ng panukala.

Sinabi pa ni Lapid na: “While his films depicted him a hero that won the hearts of the masses, what made him more popular was the fact that he lived up to be a true hero with his charitable causes.”

“His peers in the film industry could attest to his whole-hearted kindness to Filipinos knowing full well the struggles of hard work amid worsening socio-economic conditions that Filipino families face then and now,” paliwanag ni Lapid sa explanatory note.

“Thus, it is only fitting that a National Artist who championed the marginalized and oppressed with such dedication, branding, style, and iconic craft be fully recognized,” aniya. Ernie Reyes
