0 7

Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas has joined President Rodrigo Duterte’s ruling party – Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) following a loud clamor from his constituents.

“It is clear that the people are supportive of the Duterte administration. As a representative, I have to heed to the wisdom of our people,” Vargas said.

“The PDP and the present administration have made an initial success in poverty alleviation, and we are supportive with this. I am doing this for my advocacies such as kalusugan, trabaho, pabahay and education, to better fulfill my mandate to the people, especially to the people of Novaliches and Quezon City,” he added.

Vargas said that as a former LP member, he was confident that he could contribute in bringing together PDP and Vice President Leni Robredo to work together.
