While it is true that the Pagtibayin at Palaguin ang Pangkabuhayang Pilipino party-list group has no connection with the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, there is still confusion with the party-list group’s use of the acronym 4Ps already being used by DSWD for two main reasons.

First, there is a similarity with the party-list group’s logo with the DSWD’s 4Ps program’s logo. Aside from using the colors blue and red, the general shape and texture are almost the same (4Ps Party-list, 2022; Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, 2016).

Not surprisingly, the DSWD has denounced the use of the 4Ps acronym by the party-list group and has called for the cancellation of the latter’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registration (Romero, 2022).
