Enact an anti-turncoatism law
PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City

The statement in the True or False section of the Baguio Midland Courierthat “Several Cordillera leaders who jumped ship by joining PDP-Laban are now planning to return to their political parties after the change in leadership in both houses of Congress” will turn out to be true.

Our presidential form of government was patterned after the United States of America. Before, we had only two recognized political parties, which were liberal and nationalista. The U.S. maintains the democratic and republican parties.

These parties have distinct platform of governance. To the nationalstas in our country and republicans in America, their thrust is on national first policy of administration, while the liberals and democrats deal on domestic and foreign affairs. Those not representing either of the two parties can run as independent.

In the Philippines, there are many political parties now, seemingly without distinguishing platforms and a politician can just shift from one party to another, usually aligning with the party in power, which is not admired by the public.

Politicians ought to uphold the party they truly belong and stand on a platform or principles which their party declares, thus an anti-turncoatism law is worth enacting.
