LP-Atienza wing to reunify for Mar; LP-UNO team-up, OK with Erap


The Liberal Party (LP) will hold its national directorate meeting Sunday to reunite its various factions and rally behind Sen. Manuel Roxas II, who will be its standard bearer in the 2010 presidential elections.

"Senator Roxas will be the unifying factor of the party," former Senate president Franklin Drilon, the outgoing party president, said at the weekly Kapihan sa Sulo Hotel in Quezon City.

He said the LP secretariat has invited members of the breakaway group led Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Lito Atienza.

Drilon said the invitation was sent directly to former Manila congressman Miles Roces, a leader of the Atienza faction.

Senator Mar Roxas,New President,Liberal Party of the Philippines

STRENGTHS:

-”De Buena Familia”;part of the influential/very wealthy Araneta/Roxas poltical clan.
-Favorite of Philippine Wall Street(”Ayala Ave”)
-Rated K support.
-Senatorial Topnotcher
-”Mr.Palengke “projected image
-authorship of the Cheaper Medicine bill

WEAKNESSES:
-”Spineless”in crisis(quickly disappears and leaves for abroad when he needs to make a stand).
-No political organization(what’s the Drilon wing of the Liberal party right now?)

OPPORTUNITIES:

Among the the current 2010 presidentiables”,Mar Roxas appears to be most decent.He can be trusted.No taint of scandal/corruption at all.

Mar Roxas can become the most trusted political leader as soon as he finds his TRUE NORTH. Mar,Speak from the heart,not from the brain all the time.Feel the pain and real agony of the suffering Filipino masses.

THREATS:

The Lacsons and Gordons of this world project an image of “CAN DO/WILL DO’ leaders who the masses might desperately cling to.

We also have the political chameleons waiting in the wings.They can become oppositionists or administration depending where the political winds blow? Where will Mar Roxas be in this wide spectrum of political animals?
"One cannot have such intimate recollections of the past and be indifferent to what is going on in our present. One cannot be a part of our beloved Liberal Party and ignore the assaults to our democracy and freedoms as signified by the subversion of our institutions, the number of unresolved killings of journalists and activists, the widespread graft and corruption, and the callous sense of impunity held by those supposed to be accountable to the people."
Senator MAR ROXAS
