‘Di pa legal: Still no registration papers for Sara Duterte’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago


The political party of Davao Mayor Sara Duterte remains unregistered with the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

This was admitted by Davao del Norte Gov. Anthony Del Rosario, the secretary general of the political party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP).

“All of us officials of Hugpong ng Pagbabago are not yet members of a political party because HNP has no registration yet,” said Del Rosario.

“The processing of papers is still ongoing at the Comelec,” he added.

The daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte launched the HNP just this February in the hopes of uniting the local government units in Davao.

“As of the moment, itong HNP is only a group, a movement, but not really a political party.” Del Rosario said.
