The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) denied endorsing presidential candidate Isko Moreno.

The PFP said Moreno was endorsed by one Abubakar Mangelen who is pretending to be the national chairperson of the party.

Tom Lantion, PFP National Secretary-General, stressed that the PFP is endorsing only one candidate for president, Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.

“The legitimate and accredited PFP National Directorate, PFP officers’ men and women members vehemently condemn in strongest terms the irresponsible fake announcement of an impostor Mangelen about PFP’s support transferring to Isko,” Lantion said in a statement.

Lantion noted that Mangelen and his cohorts filed a disqualification case before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) against Marcos. The case was dismissed by the second division.

“It was just a mere scrap of paper. The Mangelen resolution is without basis, null and void, fake news!” Lantion added.

Lantion disclosed that the PFP general counsel and legal officers will file a case of usurpation and other criminal acts committed by “an impostor” Mangelen.

Lantion issued the statement in reaction to reports that the alleged original officers and members of the PFP surfaced Wednesday in Iligan City to throw their full support behind Moreno, the standard-bearer of Aksyon Demokratiko.
