President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. administered the oath-taking of the Northern Luzon Alliance (NLA) officers in a ceremony at the Kalayaan Hall in Malacañan Palace.

“The Ilocano block remained solid and the result is that we are now here celebrating the taking the oath of the new officers of the Northern Alliance here in the Palace. Kaya let us take that as our lesson. That really, what has kept us going, what has kept us strong and what has kept us relevant in national politics,” the President said to the attendees.

Apart from the District Representatives of Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Abra, Cagayan, Apayao, Benguet, Baguio City, Mountain Province, Ifugao, La Union, Pangasinan, Isabela, Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya, the Northern Luzon Alliance has expanded its membership beyond territorial boundaries to include key representations from vital sectors, such as Party List Representatives.
