  Palace belittles Reporma's split - Oct. 12, 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Reporma party aligns with Guingona (Oct. 11, 2003)
Presidential spokesperson Ignacio Bunye Saturday said the breakaway of Reporma from PPC would have slight, not significant effect, on the administration coalition formed during the 2001 senatorial elections.
Reporma's secretary general Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas announced the breakaway Friday, saying the party would be aligning with Vice President Teofisto Guingona who earlier bolted from the ruling Lakas party.

 Reporma party aligns with Guingona - Oct. 11, 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
A WEEK after President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo announced her decision to seek a full term in 2004, the tiny Reporma political party on Friday bolted the pro-administration People Power Coalition, saying it was aligning itself with the causes championed by Vice President Teofisto Guingona.
Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas, Reporma's secretary general, made the announcement at a press conference called by Guingona, fueling speculations that the breakaway may be the beginning of the "third force" that Guingona alluded to when he himself bolted the ruling Lakas-CMD last week.
The militant Bagong Alyansang Makabayan which is loath to support the President or whoever her opposition opponent would be in 2004, has urged Guingona and Senator Loren Legarda, another breakaway administration politician, to form a third force that would present an alternative to the people.

 Sun.Star Davao - Reporma might support GMA in 2004 polls: Sebastian
DESPITE its recent decision to bolt from the People's Power Coalition (PPC), the Reporma party might still support President Arroyo in her bid to run for the presidency in the 2004 elections.
In a telephone interview Sunday evening, Reporma president Roberto Sebastian clarified that Reporma's bolting from PPC does not necessarily mean they no longer have confidence in Arroyo.
Reporma has about 500 elected member officials all over the country making the party still a force to reckon with.

 Sun.Star Manila - De Villa quits as presidential adviser
REPORMA chairman Renato De Villa Monday resigned from the Cabinet as adviser on strategic concerns, following his decision to support the Presidential bid of former Education Sec.

De Villa said Reporma, Aksyon and Promdi have now formed the "Alyansa ng Pag-asa" which would have a secretariat and headquarters in Quezon City.

Bunye added that the President will try to meet with the groups maintaining an open stance and explain to them her reasons for reversing her Dec. 30 decision not to seek a fresh mandate.

While a Lakas official said Reporma bolted from PPC due to local politics in Batangas, other sources said Reporma’s decision was part of the seemingly increasing cooperation among Reporma, Roco’s Aksyon Demokratiko party and the Probinsiya Muna Development Initiative (Promdi) party of former Cebu governor Lito Osmeña.
