Lakas vows ‘intensified campaigning’ for Teodoro
Posted by akosistella on April 6, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – The administration party Lakas-Kampi-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) will rely heavily on its members to do an “intensified campaigning” for its standard-bearer Gilbert Teodoro, rather than on paid television and radio advertisements.
This was the consensus reached Tuesday among members of the national executive committee of the party who gathered in a show of unity and manifested anew their support for Teodoro and his slate.
President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo showed up at the meeting and ordered officers “to see to it that everything is moving smoothly.”
The party has been hounded recently by defections, resignations of top officials and alleged funding woes.
