AngKoalisyong Makabayan ng Bayan ay isang partido sa Pilipinas. Ito ay pinangungunahan ni Danding Cojuangco. Kinabibilangan ito ni Francis Escudero at Loren Legarda.
The Nationalist People's Coalition or NPC is a conservative political party in the Philippines, founded in 1992 by then presidential candidate Eduardo Cojuangco, Jr.
As the build-up to the 2010 presidential elections progresses, there are talks that Escudero has been given the nod of the party leaders as its standard-bearer, with Legarda being his running-mate, although the latter said that she won't settle for any other position than the presidency. Escudero further stressed that he will not entertain any possible alliance with the Arroyo administration forces, thus beleaguering ...
Most senior officials of the Nationalist People’s Coalition want Senator Manuel Villar to be the party’s presidential candidate in the 2010 elections based on a straw balloting among members of the party’s national executive committee, party insiders revealed Friday.
The completion of the straw vote toughen earlier reports that Sen. Loren Legarda, the NPC’s vice presidential bet, is set to team up with Villar as a result of the departure of Sen. Francis Escudero, previously the NPC’s presumptive standard bearer, from the party.
It also put an end to ...
While they voted in 2009 against the impeachment of Ombudsman, they made a complete turnaround this time
MANILA, Philippines – The impeachment complaints against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez have no leg to stand on. This was the stand of Isabela Rep. Giorgidi Aggabao as early as last year when the complaints were filed with the House of Representatives.
But he sang a different tune at the plenary on March 21. That night, he voted yes to Gutierrez’s impeachment.

Another PMA grad at BoC Another former military officer is to formally assume the post today at the Bureau of Customs as deputy commissioner for enforcement, which is mainly in charge of customs police matters. Ariel Nepomuceno, a graduate of Class ’87 of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) and former director of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD), will join at least nine of his senior classmates at the academy who have assumed their respective sensitive posts in the agency early last month. Malacañang has installed Nepomuceno as the sixth deputy commissioner to complete the list of its new appointees who are expected to implement the much-needed reforms at the bureau. He now occupies one of the two posts previously assigned to retired Armed Forces chief Gen. Jessie Dellosa who now only heads the Intelligence Group. Nepomuceno’s appointment papers were signed by President Benigno Aquino III last November 8. In a statement, Nepomuceno expressed his gratitude to the President and vowed to give his best
On the Cusp of a New Era—The Philippines and Aquino’s 4th SONA A State of the Nation Address (SONA) that brings renewed hope to the Filipino people—that seems to aptly describe President Noynoy Aquino’s 4th SONA. What struck many presidential watchers was not so much the many significant accomplishments the administration has achieved to date, but the confidence and determination the president exhibited in delivering his address to the nation. Mr. Aquino seems to have finally hit his stride halfway into his term. And many viewers seeing this could not help but feel good about themselves and their country. The Philippines is on a roll with a sure-footed, confident president at the helm. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth for the first quarter of this year is at 7.8%, the highest in Southeast Asia ...
Pnoy Has No Choice But to Apologize for the 2010 Manila Hostage Crisis While Attending the APEC Summit in Bali, Indonesia. Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III was pointedly asked by Hong Kong radio and television reporters if he would apologize to the victims of the 2010 Manila hostage crisis and meet with Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung? Admittedly, the Hong Kong reporters were far too aggressive and demanding in their tone and were later escorted out by Indonesian authorities. The president refused to respond and appeared somewhat taken aback by the forceful line of questioning—a far cry from Philippine reporters who can be described as generally meek and compliant when posing questions to the president or any high government official for that matter ...
NPC: Gov’t not serious in addressing media killing THE latest murder of another broadcast journalist last Friday (November 29) in Bukidnon “should put to shame the Aquino government’s claim that media killing in the Philippines is not a serious problem that needs urgent attention.” “The situation remains grave and serious insofar as the media profession in the Philippines is concerned. And with more than 20 unresolved murders of members of the press so far, what is becoming clear to us is that the Aquino government lacks the seriousness in resolve and commitment to address the situation,” said National Press Club (NPC) president Benny Antiporda. Antiporda was referring to the killing of DXGT radio broadcaster, Joas Dignos, who was shot dead by ‘RIT’ (riding-in-tandem) suspects in Valencia City. The suspects remain at-large. The NPC lamented that Dignos was killed less than a week after the commemoration of the infamous November 23, 2009 ‘Ampatuan Massacre’ in Maguindanao where 32 of the 57 murder victims were journali
