Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on August 13 entered into an alliance with Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), the regional party formed by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
Marcos said HNP “is not a monolithic, hierarchical or traditional party. Its approach is very local.”
The Ilocos Norte politiko earlier took her oath as HnP member in Digos City last week before Duterte.
“I think it is a very interesting model, something that is workable on the ground,” Marcos said.
“This model is better because a candidate wins or loses in the local contests anyway. It is not about the big political parties in Manila,” she added.
