MANILA – The ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP Laban) has formally endorsed the Speakership bid of reelected Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco.

Senator Manny Pacquiao made the announcement on Wednesday via video conference.

“By the power vested on me by the President of the party, I’m therefore announcing the endorsement in support of the PDP Laban to Cong. Lord Allan Velasco as Speaker of the House of Representatives in full term of the 18th Congress,” said Pacquiao.

Pacquiao said majority of members of the ruling party in the House of Representatives have already signed the manifesto of support for Velasco.

Surigao del Sur Rep. Johhny Pimentel earlier said about 60 PDP solons have also signed the said manifesto endorsing the Speakership bid of the lawmaker from Marinduque.

Velasco’s main rival for Speaker in PDP-Laban is former Speaker Bebot Alvarez.
