[Part 1] Campaign Convos with Anthony del Rosario: Hugpong ng Pagbabago mulls going national

"Sara fever" and the domination of HNP senatorial bets in surveys is making party officials think of a new plan for 2022, says its secretary-general Anthony del Rosario.

[Part 2] Campaign Convos: Anthony del Rosario on locking horns with Pantaleon Alvarez

Davao del Norte Governor and Duterte ally Anthony del Rosario seeks to unseat former speaker Pantaleon Alvarez in May. Will he succeed?

Four weeks from election day and Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) senatorial candidates are leading the pack.

Rappler reporter Pia Ranada speaks with HNP secretary general and Davao del Norte Governor Anthony del Rosario about what this means for the regional party, with the 2022 presidential elections in the horizon.

The interview takes place on Monday, April 15, right after Del Rosario hosts HNP senatorial candidates in a campaign rally in his province, a rally attended by thousands.

Del Rosario is in an interesting 2019 race himself. He is challenging the reelection bid of Davao del Norte 1st District Representative Pantaleon Alvarez. He claims Alvarez, ousted as House Speaker with the help of HNP chairperson Sara Duterte, is no longer a Duterte ally. – Rappler.com
