MANILA, Philippines – Itinanghal na bagong pangulo ng Liberal Party ang beteranong mambabatas na si Edcel Lagman.

Kasama itong itinanghal ni dating Senator Francis Pangilinan na itinanghal naman na party chairman.

“I pledge to lead LP with principled activism and advocate for good governance, human rights, progressive taxation and genuine people empowerment,” ani Lagman.

Sabay sabing, “babalik tayo.”

Si Lagman ang lone independent minority sa Kamara.

Maliban kina Lagman at Kiko, itinanghal rin sina dating Quezon City lawmaker Christopher Kit Belmonte bilang vice chairman; dating deputy speaker Lorenzo Tañada III bilang executive vice president; dating Ifugao lawmaker Teddy Baguilat bilang secretary general at Oriental Mindoro Representative Alfonso Umali, Jr. bilang treasurer.

Pinalitan ni Pangilinan si dating vice president Leni Robredo sa naturang posisyon bilang chairman na nanindigan hindi pa tapos ang laban.

“We are standing, alive and kicking. LP has remained steadfast in fighting for the democracy of the country.”

“We are not done yet. We have ignited a fire in the hearts of our people who are seeking accountable leadership. That would never be extinguished and with our tireless effort, it will spread like wildfire, engulfing our nation,” pagtatapos na pahayag nito. RNT/JGC
