MAHARLIKA Party-Lists’ advocacy is centered on these three principles – Kasanayan (skills), Kabuhayan (livelihood), and Kaunlaran (progress/growth).
Torovide equal opportunity to indigenous/marginalized and modern Filipino to enhance their talents, education, and ability thru free training.
Establish and strengthen financial institutions and social entrepreneurship programs wherein ordinary Filipinos can earn thru knowledge and skills.
Establish identity, history, and culture of the free Filipino as the foundation of continuous progress of the Filipino.
The party believes that if the majority of the population will become middle-class we can bring the Philippines back to the Maharlika era. The country will find it difficult to reach first-class if more than half of the population are below the poverty line.
“Ang Samahan ng Maharlikang Pilipino o MAHARLIKA ay nagnanais na masolusyunan ang mga hinaing ng bawat komunidad ng mga Pilipino sa pamamagitan ng pagsusulong ng mga negosyong makalipunan o social entrepreneruship.”
We have 80,000 MAHARLIKA members nationwide with leaders from the different indigenous tribes. Within our capacity, we will contribute and enhance government programs to prioritize and special treatments to indigenous people like how other countries treat their own.
