Statement of Sen. Leila M. de Lima on Sen. Kiko Pangilinan's designation as LP President

I welcome the designation of Senator Kiko Pangilinan as Liberal Party President. It is very timely at this time so he can immediately take charge over re-energizing the party under trying times.

The order of the day is consolidation. Sen. Kiko already has his initial work cut out for him. Quite a number of our party-mates jumped ship the day after the May elections to join the PDP Laban bandwagon. Only a few remained with the LP. Fewer still stand out as vocal mouthpieces of the party against the abuses of the administration. The agenda now should include whether or not to remain with the admin coalition or come out categorically as the genuine opposition.

These are the changes the great party of Jovito Salonga and Gerry Roxas should be seriously considering if it is to remain relevant to the people and to the call of the times. I believe Sen. Kiko will lead us to this newly energized and consolidated party.
