THE Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) endorsed the presidential bid of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, said his spokesperson Peter Tiu Laviña.
"The LDP has decided to give Mayor Duterte its full and unequivocal support because we believe his platform addresses the core problems of the country, at this crucial juncture in our history," said Edgardo J. Angara, LDP chairman.
He added that Duterte "offers the best hope for structural change."
“Duterte’s peace and prosperity agenda directly responds to the plight of the Filipino,” Angara said.
