Lakas to keep dominant role in RP politics - Saludo

Manila (21 May) -- Despite its election setbacks, the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD remains the dominant party in Philippine politics and President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who recently reassumed party leadership, hopes to further improve the party's position in the future.

In a news conference in Malacaņang, Presidential Spokesman Secretary Ricardo Saludo said while few deserted the party during the campaign period, Lakas-Kampi still has the most number of members in the House of Representatives, which, he said, gives the party the status of being a major force in legislation.

"It (Lakas) continues to be dominant. It is the largest party in the Lower House. We still have governors and mayors all over the country," Saludo said, counting about 109 Lakas members who won seats in the House of Representatives during the May 10 polls.

He said that as party head, President Arroyo wants to see the party maintain its political dominance and has vowed to focus on rebuilding the party.

"That is the long-term goal of the President," Saludo said. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
