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.

While they voted in 2009 against the impeachment of Ombudsman, they made a complete turnaround this time

How Can Filipinos Vote for Grace Poe After She Turned Her Back on the Philippines in 2001 Grace Poe's presidential ambitions appears to be mired in muck—all of her own doing. During oral arguments at the Supreme Court yesterday, Associate Justice Mariano del Castillo asked Poe's counsel, Alexander Poblador, why his client gave up her Philippine citizenship and instead chose to become an American. During the three-and-a-half hour hearing, Del Castillo's questioning focused on the fact that there appeared to be no compelling need for Poe to renounce her Philippine citizenship while she was living and working in the United States with her husband Neil Llamanzares ...
Philippine Elections: Grace Poe Disqualified; Rodrigo Duterte Surging, Mar Roxas Also-ran Well, it looks like the presidency won't happen for Grace Poe—at least not in 2016. And we're delighted. As far as we're concerned, the freshman senator who is only halfway through her first term in office is totally unqualified to be president for now.

Critics of the new international bank argue that it is China's way of grabbing some of the limelight away from the World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB), both of which are already doing what the AIIB intends to do. The major difference is that the two older banks (WB and ADB) are primarily funded by the United States and Japan respectively, while China will be the AIIB biggest funder ...
Obama seeks to double US funds for clean energy research President Barack Obama on Saturday proposed doubling US funding over the next five years for clean energy research and development, as part of his ongoing effort to tackle climate change.
In his weekly media address, Obama announced that he will send a budget to Congress on Tuesday which hits twice the current spending levels for clean energy research and development by 2020, declaring that "rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future."
The president next week sends to Congress the final spending blueprint of his presidency -- a guidepost to his policy priorities -- including proposals in the coming fiscal year to raise taxes and boost spending.
