Rama, whose BARUG Party is allied with PDP-LABAN, emphasized they are still united in the local political scene despite supporting different national candidates. He said there is the mutual respect in the local coalition.“We officially make a statement that our presidential candidate is BBM, Bongbong Marcos, so that ends this particular saga in what we call the waiting time,” he said.
