TINGOG Party-list Reps. Yedda Marie K. Romualdez and Jude Acidre on Friday expressed their sincerest gratitude and appreciation to the Filipino people for voting for Tingog as the top performing party-list in the House of Representatives.
In a nationwide survey conducted by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation, Inc. (RPMD), Tingog Party-list topped the list of top-performing partylists in Congress by obtaining 93.5% of a total of 10,000 respondents, followed by ACT-CIS with 89.4%, Agimat PL with 88.6% and Ako Bicol with 85.1%.
“We are humbly thankful for this honor. With all humility, we thank all those who believed in us. Rest assured that this recognition from our endeared constituency will only motivate us further to work harder for the welfare of our people and our nation,” said Rep. Romualdez, wife of Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez and current chair of the House Committee on Accounts.
Rep. Romualdez said that although they are honored by the affirmation of the Filipino of Tingog’s work in and outside of the House of Representatives, she considers the survey results as a challenge to do better and accomplish more as a party-list.
Tingog was established during the aftermath of Yolanda, considered the strongest typhoon ever to hit the Philippines, in 2013 as a partylist with a "regional perspective on national issues.”
“As a party-list group that was borne out of the worst calamity ever to hit our country, our passion for helping others runs very deep in the people that make up our organization. Kaya naman natutuwa kami na nagbubunga ang aming pagsisikap na makatulong sa ating mga kababayan,” Romualdez said.
She also lauded the other partyl-list groups in the House of Representatives for doing a good job of looking out for the welfare of the people.
“This is not a competition. Magkatuwang tayong lahat para sa ikabubuti ng ating bayan at ng mamamayan," Rep. Romualdez said. (END)
