Ralph Recto: Return to Nacionalista will not change views
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said his return to the Nacionalista Party (NP) will not change his views and convictions.
Recto and his wife, Batangas 6th District Representative Vilma Santos Recto, recently transferred from the Liberal Party to the NP.
“Ang pagsanib natin sa Nacionalista ay hindi magpapabago ng ating mga batayang paninindigan. Hindi malulusaw o lalabnaw ang ating sagradong paniniwala,” Recto said.
“Mananatili tayong kampeon ng karapatan ng mamamayan. Tagapag-bantay ng pambansang gastusin. Tutol sa buwis at mga singilin na pahirap, labis at di kailangan,” he added.
Recto said he plans to stay in NP.
“It is my second homecoming to the party of the Rectos. And I plan to stay. Not as a leader, but as an ordinary footsoldier, who will march under the banner, under which millions Batangueños had fought in war, and peace, which says: ‘Ang Bayan Higit sa Lahat,'” he said.
