Hugpong Para kay Sara steamrolls through Pangasinan, Agusan Del Sur
MANILA, Philippines — The citizen’s movement to persuade Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to throw her hat into the 2022 presidential derby gained momentum with over a hundred officials and volunteers participating in a mass oath-taking of the Hugpong Para Kay Sara (HPS) Pangasinan chapter at the WCC Aeronautical and Technological College in Pangasinan.
In an apparent show of force aimed at convincing the reluctant presidential polls front-runner to change her mind, supporters of the local HPS chapter from the 443 municipalities of Pangasinan took turns pledging allegiance to the movement’s vision to continue the successful programs of President Rodrigo Duterte, as well as to future developmental endeavors of Duterte-Carpio.
The mass oath-taking was led by newly-inducted HPS Pangasinan chapter officials, Bayambang Mayor Cezar T. Quiambao, president; Binalonan Mayor Ramon Guico, Jr., VP for finance; Vici Ventanilla, VP for operations; Von Mark Mendoza, VP for external affairs; and Darwina Sampang, secretary and spokesperson.
Named the chapter’s board of advisors were 5th District Rep. Ramon Guico III, Pangasinan Vice Mayor Mark Lambino; former Alaminos City mayor Arthur Celeste; former congressman Mark Cojuangco; and Deputy Speaker Conrad Estrella III.
Presiding over the oath-taking was HPS national chairman, former Davao del Norte governor Anthony del Rosario.
Meanwhile, in Agusan Del Sur, barangay kagawads signed a manifesto declaring their support to the daughter of President Duterte.
The manifesto among others states their belief that “the improvements, growth, and achievements of the PRRD administration in its war against drug and corruption, among others, must endure and continue in the next administration.”
