Mayor EdSa Vows To Support Duterte Administration [ Wednesday, 1st of June 2016 | 1 year ago ]
This was the re-elected mayor’s statement as he said that there is a need for political unity to push the agenda of the next administration.
“Majority of the local officials in the city belongs to the Liberal Party but we will set aside political colors for the betterment of our nation” the mayor stated.
“We congratulate the newly elected leaders. We assure them full cooperation and support especially in providing a stable and enabling environment for further growth of the economy” he added.
Mayor EdSa stressed that every LGU should play a vital role in pushing the new president’s primary agenda in curbing criminality particularly within six months after assuming office.
“He has a strong political will and he can do a lot of things to abate criminality in this short span of time,” he said of the former Davao City mayor.
Hailing the orderly, peaceful and credible conduct of the May 9 elections, the mayor said that the recent polls has set a high standard for free and fair elections in the future.
“With the overnight tabulation and transmission of a big portion of votes from all over the country, the automated process has gained public confidence in our democratic process,” he said.
Mayor EdSa also hopes that Duterte would push for the development of both Clark International Airport and Subic Bay Freeport to decongest Metro Manila and boost economic opportunities in Central Luzon.
