HIGHLIGHTS: PDP-Laban Cusi faction national convention

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

The Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) faction supported by President Rodrigo Duterte and led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi will hold its national convention on Wednesday, September 8.

The convention, a mix of physical and online events, will finalize the presidential, vice presidential, and senatorial candidates of the ruling party.

The Cusi faction earlier endorsed Senator Bong Go and President Duterte as its presidential and vice presidential bets. While Duterte has accepted the nomination, Go had declined the endorsement. But as with anything in politics, nothing is final. Duterte and Go are both expected to physically attend the convention.

The other PDP-faction, led by potential presidential candidate and Senator Manny Pacquiao, will hold its own assembly later in September.
