Incoming president Rodrigo Duterte spearheaded the signing of a coalition partnership between the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino- Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and the Nacionalista Party on Monday afternoon (May 16, 2016) as he held a news conference in Davao City.

Signing on behalf of PDP-Laban was Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, while the Nacionalista Party was headed by former Senator Manny Villar.

Duterte had to stop his press conference to give way to “diplomatic duties”, but will continue to answer questions from the press afterwards.

Nacionalista Party is known as the oldest political party in the Philippines. It was founded in 1907, while PDP-Laban was founded in 1982.
