Statement by Senate Minority Leader and Liberal Party Vice Chairperson Franklin M. Drilon on the Resignation of Senator Francis Pangilinan as LP President

"We are deeply saddened by his resignation as our party president. We did not expect it, especially in times like this when we need a steady hand to lead the party alongside Vice President Leni Robredo.

We are witness on how Senator Pangilinan worked very hard and diligently to campaign for Otso Diretso candidates. Unfortunately, we lost.

While his resignation is a class act, we hope that he will reconsider his decision. We will try to convince him to reconsider his decision and ask the party leadership to not accept his resignation."
