LP BETS VOW TO BACK CO-OPS
Cooperatives received pledges of support from the national candidates of the Liberal Party, led by LP presidential standard bearer, Mar Roxas.
The expression of support was aired during the gathering of cooperatives' officers and members, spearheaded by the Coop Natcco Party-list group, dubbed as "Pwersa sa Kooperatiba sa Sugbo: Kadaugan sa Daang Matuwid", held last December 16, 2015 at Hoops Dome, Lapu-lapu City, Cebu.
Roxas urged members of cooperatives to support LP candidates to ensure that the gains under the Daang Matuwid are continued.
Roxas was joined by LP senatorial candidates REP. CRESENTE "MR. CO-OP" PAEZ, Mark Lapid, and Nariman Ambolodto.
Paez, a three-term House Representative of Coop Natcco Party-list, said it is important that the cooperative sector is represented in the Senate. The cooperatives and the government must work together, he said.
