Caritas Philippines, Catholic Church’s social development wing, May 26 said that it will collaborate with the government led by newly proclaimed President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. 

"We officially congratulate Bongbong Marcos Jr. as the next president of the Republic of the Philippines. We will, as always, exercise principled cooperation with the government,” said the statement issued by Caritas Philippines. 

Caritas Philippines will support all Marco administration's programs that will respect the rights and dignity of the Filipino people, honor the rule of law and history and make the government more accountable to its people.

“With our post-election accountability program, we will hold him and all elected officials liable for all their election promises,” the press note said.

“In all that is to come, we pray that his administration will be guided by justice, inspired by the people who elected him, and fueled by true patriotism,” the statement added. 

Marcos and Sara Duterte were proclaimed on May 25, as the duly elected president and vice president, respectively, in the May 9 general elections. 

Marcos Jr is the son and namesake of the late Philippine dictator and Duterte is the daughter of outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte. Both will assume office on June 30.
