Information drive on federalism launched

December 03, 2018

THE Partido ng Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), a political party supporting President Rodrigo Duterte, yesterday launched an information drive on federalism.

PFP secretary general Thompson Lantion explained that federalism is the solution to the country’s problems.

“Our country is rich in natural and human resources.  How come many of our countrymen remain miserable and suffering from poverty?” Lantion asked .

Lantion stressed the PFP believes that federalism is the key to liberate the country from poverty.

The President has been pushing for the shift from democratic to federal form of government.

Duterte pointed out that federalism will help achieve peace in Mindanao and spur economic development in all regions not only Metro Manila.

A study by the Legatum Institute’s 2018 Prosperity Index showed that rich nations are those under a federal form of government.
