The Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) faction led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi is eyeing to hold joint rallies with the UniTeam alliance of presidential candidate former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Z. Duterte, an official said on Thursday night.


PDP-Laban Secretary-General Melvin Matibag said there is also a “chance” that President Rodrigo Duterte would attend the upcoming joint rallies.

“We already had a meeting… I was with Secretary Cusi as president of the party when we discussed that there will be PDP-Laban rallies inviting BBM and Mayor Inday Sara,” Matibag said in an interview after attending the UniTeam grand rally at the Biñan Football Stadium in Biñan, Laguna.

The joint UniTeam-PDP-Laban rallies, he said, would possibly be held in Bulacan, Parañaque, and Nueva Ecija.

“We’re planning a big rally in Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, and in Parañaque na ang mag-i-sponsor PDP-Laban, invited ang UniTeam (that will be sponsored by PDP-Laban, with UniTeam invited),” he said.

On the UniTeam-PDP-Laban partnership, Matibag said the two are on good terms.

“Yes the talks went well. The UniTeam and PDP-Laban have plans,” Matibag said.

The PDP-Laban earlier endorsed Marcos’ presidential candidacy and Mayor Duterte’s bid for the vice presidency.

Meanwhile, President Duterte is endorsing his daughter’s vice presidential bid.

However, he has decided not to endorse any presidential candidate to avoid speculation that he will use public funds to campaign for his preferred successor.
