@maracepeda LP stalwart and Senate aspirant Teddy Baguilat Jr. welcomes the possible inclusion of Colmenares, Matula, and Lacson in the Robredo-Pangilinan tandem, says they would help broaden the base of the opposition coalition Robredo wants to forge in 2022. #PHVote #WeDecide | @maracepeda
@maracepeda Baguilat: Maliban kasi sa pakikipag-usap sa possible allies outside our usual circles of supporters, maigi din na ang basis of unity is common values and platform of governance. Hindi lang just a marriage of political convenience. #PHVote #WeDecide | via @maracepeda
@maracepeda Baguilat: With Sir Neri and Makabayan, magkakasama na kami in progressive bills like FOI, agrarian reform, environment bills.

Kay Sonny naman, fits into VPL’s desire for a multisectoral-led campaign. #PHVote #WeDecide | via @maracepeda
@maracepeda Baguilat: Alex naman has been an advocate of ethical leadership n transparency. #PHVote #WeDecide | via @maracepeda
@maracepeda Matula also tells Rappler that he and other members of the Alliance of Labor Leaders for Leni Robredo virtually met with Robredo herself earlier today to present their 5-point labor agenda to her. #PHVote #WeDecide | via @maracepeda
@maracepeda Matula: Palagay ko bukas na bukas na i-adopt yung mga proposal ng labor. #PHVote #WeDecide | via @maracepeda

NOW: In this episode of By The Numbers, Rappler talks to Vic Dimagiba, the president of Laban Konsyumer. Dimagiba was an undersecretary at the Department of Trade and Industry.

What's behind the increase in oil price?

Dimagiba says this can be attributed to two things: 1) more citizens are getting vaccinated, people can now go out, driving the economy again; 2) this is the time for oil producing countries to recover revenues.

Dimagiba suggests that the president invoke his powers to temporarily suspend excise taxes to help minimum wage consumers.
