Caloocan mayoralty candidate Along Malapitan and his Team Aksyon at Malasakit on Tuesday secured the endorsement of President Duterte during the rally of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan in his city.

“Ang gusto ko sa mga Malapitan, madaling lapitan,” Mr. Duterte said.

Along Malapitan is the chair of the PDP-Laban Caloocan.

In the same event, Mr. Duterte also declared his support for Malapitan’s running mate Karina Teh, Councilor Dean Asistio, and congressional candidate Mitz Cajayon-Uy.

Along Malapitan and his father, incumbent Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan, thanked the chief executive for his support.

“Ang pagsuportang ito ay nagpapatunay sa kakayanan ng mga kandidato sa ilalim ng Team Aksyon at Malasakit. Hindi ko po bibiguin ang aking nasasakupan sakaling sa akin po nila ibigay ang pribilehiyong maging alkalde ng Caloocan,” Along said.

The elder Malapitan also expressed appreciation for the President’s programs that benefited the city.

“Mahal na Pangulong Duterte, sa ngalan po ng 1.7 milyong mamamayan ng Caloocan, kami po ay taos-pusong nagpapasalamat para sa lahat ng programa ng inyong administrasyon na tunay na nakatulong at napakinabangan, higit na ng mga simpleng mamamayan,” Oca said.
