Jose Alejandrino Reveals the Reasons Why the Opposition are Now Nervous Against Pres. Duterte


Veteran journalist and political analyst Jose Alejandrino revealed the reasons why the opposition, the Liberal Party and critics of Pres. Duterte are now nervous against the tactics of the President and the recent development in the political scene of the Philippines.


According to Jose Alejandrino the opposition is understandly nervous because it doesn't know what is coming. The LP is in shambles right now and the PDP-Laban is now splintering into groups after GMA, an ally of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

The splintered groups from the PDP-Laban would now like to join the newly-formed national party of Mayor Sara Duterte, the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), who prefers to make tactical alliances with political groups than integrate them into her party which is considered as a wise move by Inday because she retains her flexibility by way of options.



Once properly organized and properly strategized, the HNP could end up being the biggest party in the Philippines. It has a mass base nationwide and abroad with OFWs, thanks to the popularity of Tatay Digong and it could mobilize at least 20-25 million supporters.

Here's the Complete Statement of Jose Alejandrino:

The Opposition is understandably nervous because it doesn't know what is coming. The LP is in shambles and the PDP-Laban, which the liberals hoped to control through those who abandoned the LP, is now splintering into groups after GMA, an Inday ally, took over the Speakership of the lower house of Congress from Panty Alvarez, the Sec-Gen of PDP-Laban. These splintered groups would now like to join HNP, Inday Sara's regional party, but Inday has said she prefers to make tactical alliances with political groups than integrate them into her party.

It's a wise move by Inday because she retains her flexibility by way of options. She doesn't want to make the same mistake as PDP-Laban did. But should it have been a surprise? Koko Pimentel, PDP's president, was formerly LP. His heart has always been with the liberals. He, too, lost the presidency of the Senate. With Panty and Koko no longer in control of both houses of Congress, is it any wonder PDP-Laban members are abandoning ship? As I had predicted, the PDP would go the same way as the LP.



This has always been the problem with Philippine politics. No principles, no party discipline. Politicians always gravitated from the weak to the strong.

What lies ahead? Properly organized and properly strategized, the HNP could end up being the biggest party in the Philippines. It has a mass base nationwide and abroad with OFWs, thanks to the popularity of Tatay Digong. The other political parties have a limited base confined to a local area controlled by the personalities who make up their party. Offhand, I would say the HNP can easily mobilize 20-25 million supporters. What other political party can match this?

With the PDP-Laban and the LP reduced to size, their finances, too, will dwindle which will make it difficult to sustain the campaign of their candidates. No financier will risk his money on a loser. In politics, you always look for a winner. That is why Inday Sara will be the next president.
