PIA Press Release

LPP renews support for PGMA

Pili, Camarines Sur (15 February) -- The League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) renewed its support and confidence in the leadership of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in the midst of calls for her resignation.

Camarines Sur Gov. Luis Raymund Villafuerte, LPP national chairman, said President Arroyo had launched the country in the right direction towards making the Philippines a first world country within 20 years.

Villafuerte said the economic and political gains under the Arroyo administration had surpassed similar efforts by past administrations, topped by a record 7.3 percent growth in the gross domestic product (GDP) in 2007.

He cited the Moody's Investor Service upgrade of the country's rating from stable to positive thereby reaffirming international business confidence and; the strong performance of the peso notwithstanding financial turmoil in other countries among them the United States.

Villafuerte submitted to President Arroyo an LPP manifesto of support reiterating the resolute and unswerving support of the League of the Provinces of the Philippines during her visit to Camarines Sur on Wednesday, February, 13 for the LPP 2nd general assembly held in the province.

The resolution was filed as a unanimous call by the governors for all sectors to defy any unconstitutional moves to unseat the President and disrupt the socio-economic reforms that she persistently pushed to improve the plight of the poor.

Also encluded in said document is the league's call on the political opposition to allow the present administration to finish its term, and for them to wait for the 2010 presidential elections.

Villafuerte said President Arroyo's persistent and unrelenting determination had placed the country in the tourism and investment map so that we may be at par with the world's best. (EDL/PIA) [top]
