Outgoing Leyte Rep. Yedda Marie Romualdez on Thursday vowed to look after the interests of Eastern Visayas as she is expected to take a seat in the 18th Congress as the representative of the Tingog Party-list group
“Tingog, as such, primarily exists to be the voice of the people, one who will serve to amplify their previously unheeded hopes and aspirations,” she said.
Romualdez is the wife of incoming Leyte Rep. Ferdinand Martin Romualdez.
“The trust given by the public to Tingog is the reason we are here. We cannot afford to disappoint them. Thus, with the support of the Duterte administration and the public, Tingog will do its share to realize its vision for a progressive Eastern Visayas,” she said.
Tingog ranked 18th out of 134 party-list groups with 387,019 votes as of Thursday.
Tingog, a regional political party based in Eastern Visayas, “seeks to give voice to said people in the region, as well as usher in the development of the regional countryside, through meaningful political
participation especially through the party-list system of representation in the House of Representatives.”
