CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — Top officials of this province welcomed on Saturday a fledgling political party that aims to push for the country’s government to shift into a federal form.
In his radio program over Radyo Bulacan, Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy Alvarado said that participants to the caravan took off from the City of Malolos and the towns of Guiguinto, San Ildefonso, and Santa Maria and converged in front of the provincial capitol building in Malolos.
The motorcade for the fledgling political party was simultaneously launched around 7:00 am on Saturday from the four political districts of Bulacan.
The caravan that assembled from the City Walk for the District 1 participants; St. Agatha Square, Guiguinto for District 2; PTT Malimpampang, San Ildefonso for the Third District; and Santa Maria Municipal Hall for the Fourth District had a motorcade then gathered in front of the Capitol building where the program was held.
Ret. Col. Danilo Bugay, provincial chairman in Bulacan of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), said the party has launched a simultaneous nationwide caravan yesterday in the different cities in the country to make its voice heard.
First District Representative Jose Antonio R. Sy-Alvarado assured the Bulakenyos that the Congress is doing its best to support the passage of the new system of government.
“Panahon na sa Pilipinas upang makasubok tayo ng panibagong gamot. At pinaniniwalaan ko po na ang tamang paghahati sa pondo ng bayan, ang pagbibigay ng tamang kapangyarihan sa federal states o sa bagong bubuoin natin na local government, ito ang magiging solusyon upang mas mabilis na makarating sa ating mga kababayan ang tulong na ngayon ay nanggagaling pa sa pamahalaang nasyunal,” Alvarado said.
For his part, Vice Governor Daniel R. Fernando called on the people who understand the scope of Federalism to educate those who have no knowledge so that more people will appreciate the benefits and advantages of Federalism.
“Sa paglipas ng panahon ay mas nakikilala natin ang pangangailangan ng ating mga nasasakupan kaya marapat lamang na sabayan natin ang pagbabago upang mas maging handa tayo para sa kinabukasan. Ano man ang maging bihis ng ating pamahalaan, ang mahalaga ay sama-sama pa din tayong maging tanod ng katotohanan at sandigan ng katarungan,” the vice governor said.
The Go Bulacan for Federalism Caravan was organized by the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte-National Executive Coordinating Committee (MRRD-NECC) and the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) with the support of the Provincial Government of Bulacan.
Overall the caravan was able to master around 500 participants that were welcomed in front of the Capitol Building by Guiguinto Mayor Ambrocio Cruz who is also the president of League of Municipalities of the Philippines-Bulacan, Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando, Rep. Jonathan Alvarado (Bulacan First District). (RONDA Balita Online News)
