The Pagtibayin at Palaguin ang Pangkabuhayang Pilipino (4Ps) party list on Wednesday denied allegations that it was using the government’s conditional cash transfer program Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) for its own agenda ahead of the May 2022 elections.
In a statement, the 4P party list refuted Senator Leila de Lima’s statement that it has an identical name to the government program and uses a similar logo.
“Senator De Lima may be referring to and being confused with Progresibong Patutulungan sa Pag-unlad ng Pilipinas, another party group also using 4P as an acronym, but was disqualified by COMELEC,” he said. .
With respect to the use of the acronym 4Ps, the party list argued that no one has the exclusive and absolute legal or exclusive title, ownership and right to use 4Ps, excluding all others.
Additionally, the acronym 4Ps has been used in other areas, fields, or disciplines, such as “product, price, place, and promotion” in marketing; “purpose, population, procedure and publication” in research; and “personnel, positioning, promotion and perseverance” in job search, long before the implementation of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino program.
The 4Ps party list pointed out that as of December 2021, it has always stated that it does not claim, and will never claim, to be associated with the national government’s 4Ps scheme, and will never use the government’s conditional cash transfer. program of his political agenda.
However, one of its key programs is pushing for the improvement of 4Ps program policies, mechanisms, systems, and procedures by introducing appropriate amendments to the 4Ps Act (Republic Act No. 11310) for the benefit of 4Ps program beneficiaries. . —Jamil Santos/KG, GMA News
