'PDP-Laban candidates to be funded by China'

"Malaki ang possibi­lity na tutulong ang China sa mga kandidato ng present administration because China wanted status quo or much more, ‘yung pinapakitang behavior ng administrasyon na ito (towards them)," explained Alejano.

According to Section 81 of the Omnibus Election Code (BP 881), intervention of foreigners is not allowed. "It shall be unlawful for any foreigner, whether judicial or natural person, to aid any candidate or political party, directly or indirectly, or take part in or influence in any manner any election, or to contribute or make any expenditure in connection with any election campaign or partisan political activity."

Magdalo Party-list Representative Gary Alejano said there is the possibility of money entering from China to fund the Duterte administration's lineup for the upcoming elections. Alejano made the statement along with the state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to the country.

Alejano also explained that the Duterte administration can use the "cooperation agreement" between the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Ba­yan (PDP-Laban or in English, Democratic Party of the Philippines-Country's Strength) and the Chinese Communist Party to get additional funds from the Chinese to ensure the success of their candidates for elections in 2019.

The Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan, more commonly known as PDP–Laban, is the ruling political party in the Philippines. The party now known as PDP–Laban is the result of a merger between the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino and Lakas ng Bayan.

Partido Demokratiko Pilipino (PDP) was founded on February 6, 1982 in Cebu City by Aquilino "Nene" Pimentel Jr. and a group of protesters against the authoritarian government of Ferdinand Marcos, the 10th President of the Philippines, and the then-ruling Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL). These protesters included the leaders of Davao City and Cagayan de Oro City, such as Zafiro L. Respicio, Rey Magno Teves, Cesar R. Ledesma, Samuel Oceña, Crispin Lanorias and Morgs Cua.
