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.

VP Binay lauds Google for removing anti-Filipino blog Vice President Jejomar C. Binay yesterday asked Filipinos to hold their heads high in the face of discrimination as he thanked Google for removing an anonymous blog urging Singaporeans to harass Filipinos living in the island nation. Binay also cited Xyza Cruz Bacani, an overseas Filipino worker in Hong Kong whose photos were recently featured in The New York Times, as yet another example of “Filipino talent and determination.” “Taas-noo nating ipagmalaki na tayo ay Pilipino. Let us be proud of our culture and heritage, and the same time, let us also be examples of tolerance, respect, and acceptance,” Binay said in a statement. The Vice President lauded Google’s move and thanked the internet giant “for not allowing itself to be a platform for prejudice and ethnic discrimination.” “I laud everyone from Google for leading the drive in keeping the world wide web free from bigotry and intolerance,” he said. The blog, “Blood Stained Singapore,” was hosted on Google-own
Lani to boycott PNoy’s SONA! actress-turned- Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla yesterday said she will boycott the fifth State-of- the-Nation Address (SONA) of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III on July 28. Mercado-Revilla said she expects Aquino to focus on the filing of cases against high-profile politicians and their coaccused in connection with the multibillion-peso pork barrel scam. She stressed that she and her family’s main concerns right now are to seek fair justice and clear the name of her husband Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla and not the senator’s bid to run in the 2016 presidential polls. Mercado-Revilla said she respects the opinion of Akbayan party-list Rep. Walden Bello who stressed that Revilla was “delusional” in discussing about running for the presidency while in detention. “Personally, ang gusto ko mapatunayan na walang kasalanan si Sen. Bong at makasama namin siyang muli on a normal basis. Kasi hindi mahalaga sa akin ’yung political position,” Mercado-Revilla told Rowena Sa
POE COULD BLIND SIDE BINAY IN 2016 AN ally of Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay admitted yesterday that Sen. Grace Poe would give Binay a run for his money in the 2016 presidential election. Valenzuela City Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian, a member of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) who allied himself with Binay, said the good showing of Poe in surveys is an indication that she can be a serious rival of Binay who is believed to be a runaway winner in the presidential race if elections were held today. In the March 19 to 26 nationwide survey conducted by Pulse Asia Research Inc. the 1,200 respondents chose Binay to be the next president while Poe was the second choice. “Considering that she is new in politics, she is a strong contender already. I heard many people want her to run. Nakatulong din yung nag-top siya sa senatorial elections,” Gatchalian added. Meanwhile, Gatchalian said that there is also a possibility that Poe might be the runningmate of Binay, disclosing there are some people from the UNA work
Why Bong Revilla Will Never Become President of the Philippines A country's president must be a statesman. Someone who is genuinely concerned about the welfare of his people—especially those who have the least in life. A president must also be fair. Fairness after all underpins what justice is all about. Everyone, be they exceedingly wealthy or totally destitute deserves equal treatment under the law ...
