VICE President Leni Robredo is now officially the chairman of the Liberal Party (LP).
Robredo rook the chairmanship during a national executive council meeting where Senator Francis Pangilinan was also elected as the party’s president.
Robredo called on her fellow Liberals to cooperate and start working to rebuild the political party.
She said the work to rebuild the party from the setbacks of the past year should start now.
“Siguro ‘yung araw na ito, tapos na ‘yng pahinga, ‘di ba? Parang nagpahinga tayo ng isang taon, pinagbigyan natin, transition. (Pero) ito, it’s time to work. It’s time to rebuild the party,” Robredo said.
She also reminded the members to maintain a “healthy balance between politicians and non-politicians” in the LP.
To date, LP is losing its members to PDP-Laban of President Rodrigo Duterte.
