MANILA, Philippines — More than a week after forging an alliance with the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD), the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), the party of President Marcos, formed yet another partnership, this time with the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), as it sets its sights on the 2025 midterm polls.

Marcos witnessed the signing of the alliance yesterday in Makati, a partnership that the NPC said is grounded on the parties’ “desire for genuine unity, strength, and continued positive change.”

“Historically, the NPC has always been supportive of the elected president. With urgency, we continue to push for unity among the leaders of our great nation. With that in mind, our party will heed the call of the PFP,” NPC chairman and former Senate president Vicente Sotto III said in a statement.

“I believe this alliance will foster cooperation and strong support for our President considering our party has almost 4,000 members, of which 1,910 are incumbent public officials,” he added.

The parties gave an assurance that the alliance would seek to fulfill public service with “utmost integrity, transparency, accountability, people participation, effectiveness, and efficiency.”

“Public service should come before and beyond personal interests. This partnership proves our commitment to the Filipino people, that their interests are our primordial duty,” Sotto, who ran for vice president in 2022 under the ticket of former senator Panfilo Lacson, said.

Earlier this month, PFP signed an alliance with Lakas-CMD, a development that Marcos had described as “a significant moment for Philippine politics and public service.” The partnership, dubbed as “Alyansa Para sa Bagong Pilipinas,” seeks to improve the lives of Filipinos under a new Philippines, according to a recent Palace statement.

Marcos is the chairman of the PFP, which was formed in 2018.

PFP, Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago, the Partido ng Masang Pilipino and guest candidates from different parties constituted the UniTeam Alliance during the 2022 national elections, which saw Marcos and Vice President Sara Duterte winning the polls by a landslide.
