ENG - The Nationalist People's Coalition or NPC is a political party in the Philippines.
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 the NPC's status as one of the coalition partners of the Arroyo administration, as he is hell-bent in transforming the supposedly largely pro-administration NPC into an opposition party.

UNA to woo Zambo voters THE whole senatorial slate of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) will storm Zamboanga City today to secure its dominance in the country’s southernmost and second largest region in Mindanao.

Illegal cable, internet connections penalized PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino has signed a law punishing illegal cable television and cable internet connections. Republic Act (R.A.) 10515, signed by the President last Wednesday, penalizes the act of intercepting or receiving any signal offered over a cable television system or a cable internet system obtained through tapping. “Dahil meron na nga po tayong cable internet ngayon, kailangan na rin pong gawing krimen ‘yung pagta-tap o ‘yung pagkakabit ng iligal na koneksyon doon sa cable internet service—doon sa sistemang ito,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said at a press briefing yesterday.

Grace Poe seeks to end discrimination vs women MARAWI City -- TEAM P-Noy senatorial candidate Grace Poe yesterday warned that the unabated discrimination against women in the country’s labor force will continue to get worse in the absence of intervention from the government to compel businesses to implement much needed reforms in the system. Campaigning with President Benigno “Noynoy “Aquino III and Team P-Noy senatorial bet Jamby Madrigal here, Poe urged the convening of a tri-partite conference among the labor sector, traders and the government to outline the steps to eradicate unfair practices against women workers. She said women are still generally paid less than their male counterparts in the same job, have lower chances at getting promoted, are the first to get cut during retrenchments, forced to wear protection gear and use equipment that were specifically designed for men, hardly receive any consideration during pregnancy and have to leave their young kids at home during work days due to lack of daycare facilities.
