Akbayan Party list Chairperson Emeritus Etta Rosales denounced the Facebook post of Commander Louie Dagoy of the Army’s 802nd Infantry Brigade in Leyte which maliciously linked Akbayan with the New People's Army (NPA).
"Commander Louie Dagoy's accusation is malicious, baseless and dangerous. As a political party, AKBAYAN engages in parliamentary work through Congress and concerted people’s actions.This is the only battlefield we know where we earned the support of the public for 21 straight years," Etta Rosales said.
Rosales was the first nominee of Akbayan which was among 9 party list groups who made it in the first party list polls in 1998.
"Dagoy should look at our track record. We became the longest-serving party list organization without the aid of armed groups. Integral to the reforms we pushed for was the cultivation of integrity among political parties and party list groups.
