MANILA, Philippines — Stressing that it is not a “marriage of convenience” in politics but a “need to unite for the greater good,” President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. led the signing of a pact between his political party and the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) ahead of the much-anticipated 2025 midterm elections.

Marcos, chair of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP), witnessed the signing of the “alliance for a new Philippines” at the Makati Diamond Residences in Makati City on Saturday night.

“What makes this alliance durable is that it is a partnership of equals and one anchored on a set of principles. It is not a marriage of convenience as we often find in politics, but it is borne out of a need to unite for the greater good,” the President said on Saturday night.
