Since officially announcing their support for the presidential run of Vice President Leni Robredo during the #Pasiglaban Grand Rally held last March 20, Sunday in Pasig City, Coco Martin’s AP Partylist continued their campaign for Robredo at the Reporma Davao People’s Grand Rally in Tagum, Davao last week April 7. AP Partylist campaigned with Moira and Jason, serenading the crowd before Robredo’s arrival at the event.
AP Partylist #AkoyPilipino is the new partylist of primetime king Coco Martin. While previously affiliated with another partylist with the same name as his primetime show, Coco Martin is now all-out in supporting his new partylist with first nominee Rep. Ronnie Ong, also previously-affiliated with Martin’s old partylist. Ong and Martin decided to represent a new partylist after working together during the pandemic in helping the transport and livelihood sector.
Coco Martin says, “‘Wag nang mangamba, nandito na ang AP Partylist. Dito na tayo sa biyaheng aasenso ang lahat ng Pilipino,” in encouraging his fellow Filipinos to join him in his new partylist, AP Partylist.
During the introduction of the new blended learning system, or online and module classes last August 2020, Ong worked with VP Leni Robredo’s office for their e-learning project. “We also had similar projects with her. We also launched a Libreng Sakay program for health workers and frontliners, as well as establishing E-skwela Hub e-learning centers all over the country to help learners and students adapt to the new normal of classes,” Ong said. “How we work, how we serve, and how we care for our kababayans at AP Partylist aligns with hers, and that’s why AP Partylist, together with our whole family which includes Coco Martin and the Taskforce Agila, supports the Leni Robredo presidential campaign.”
Ong further stated, “Naniniwala tayo na kapag tinawag ka, tumindig ka. At tumindig si VP Leni. At ngayon, tumitindig ang buong 164 AP Partylist kasama niya. Tumindig tayong lahat hindi lang para ipanalo ang eleksyong ito, kundi para ipanalo ang taumbayan sa isang biyahe ng gobyernong tapat na aangat ang buhay ng lahat.”
Aside from Coco Martin, AP Partylist is also supported by Julia Montes and the famed “Taskforce Agila” which includes Angel Aquino, John Prats, Raymart Santiago, Michael de Mesa, John Medina and Marc Solis. Meanwhile, the inspiring Ako’y Pilipino anthem of AP Partylist was created and performed by rapper artists Bryan “Smugglaz” Lao, Lordivino “Bassilyo” Ignacio and Muriel “Sisa” Jamito. With barely a month to go until election day, AP Partylist has vowed to continue their support for VP Leni Robredo’s campaign. As what AP Partylist chanted to the crowd in the Davao People’s Grand Rally, “Dito na tayo sa biyaheng aasenso ang lahat ng Pilipino… dahil sa gobyernong tapat, angat-buhay ang lahat!”
