PDP-Laban out to learn ideology from Communist Party of China
By: Dona Z. Pazzibugan - Reporter / @dpazzibuganINQ Philippine Daily Inquirer / 07:31 AM July 19, 2017

FUJIAN PROVINCE, China — President Rodrigo Duterte’s political party is enlisting the help of the Communist Party of China (CPC) to train its members.

The ruling Partido Demokratiko ng Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) is in talks with CPC for a partnership, including having members of Mr. Duterte’s party learn the ways and ideology of China’s sole governing party.

Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, president of PDP-Laban, reportedly discussed cooperation for “party building,” among other things, when he met with senior CPC officials in the southeastern province of Fujian in mid-June.

Pimentel and about two dozen members of a Philippine delegation stayed in the port city of Xiamen for four days for a series of forums and meetings.

Pimentel was reportedly invited by the national CPC leadership to make the visit.

Agreement

According to Chinese officials, PDP-Laban entered into an agreement with the CPC in December last year for members of the Philippine political party to undergo “policy training” at the CPC provincial party school in Fujian.

The Pimentel delegation reportedly met with senior officials led by Pei Jinjiang, a member of the standing committee of the CPC Fujian provincial committee and secretary of the CPC Xiamen municipal committee.

Model for development

The DFA reported that Pimentel praised the booming metropolitan city of Xiamen as a “model for urban development” for Philippine municipalities and cities and that he “extended an invitation to Pei and CPC members to visit the Philippines soon.”

“This is a free country.”

This was how Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III defended on Wednesday the partnership of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) with the Communist Party of China (CPC).

“The PDP-Laban can choose who to partner with especially if iniimbita kami. Kung ‘di kami iniimbita ng American parties wala kami magagawa,” Pimentel told reporters.
