TEAM Unity

TEAM Unity

Together Everybody Achieves More (TEAM) Unity is the umbrella coalition of the administration-backed senatorial line-up for the 2007 Philippine Midterm Elections. TEAM Unity is composed mostly of supporters and erstwhile critics of current Philippine president, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Team Unity sought to take several Senate seats in order to protect President Arroyo from impeachment attempts by the political opposition after the midterm elections.

During the Lakas-CMD National Convention last April 12, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo devised an acronym for the 12 senatorial candidates of TEAM Unity which is: "MaS PARA SA KiDZ Mo" (in English, "More for your kids".) Ma stands for Magsaysay, S stands for Singson, P stands for Pichay, A stands for Angara, R stands for Recto, A stands for Aquino-Oreta, S stands for Sotto, A stands for Arroyo, Ki stands for Kiram, D stands for Defensor, Z stands for Zubiri, and Mo stands for Montano. It is highlighted by TEAM UNITY's slogan and main program for every Filipino: "Our priority agenda is to work for the future of our children." Their 2nd slogan is ""Tulong Tulong sa Pagsulong" (in English, "Working together for progress"). The opposing party, Genuine Opposition, used the slogan: "PLAN CO REVOLT" (in English, "My plan is to revolt") as a demonstrative threat to the Arroyo government.
