This is the second time he is empowering this association"."Our belief is that he is just one of these politicians that will not remember his words when asking for votes. Since he has fulfilled his earlier promise to us, we have that strong belief that when he returns to the House, he will do more for us".

Vote for BAT for President, Vote other Candidates of our party"
