Thursday, May 17, 2012
THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) has accredited last week Abang Lingkod 1-DSWD as one of the party-list groups for the 2013 elections.
Board Member Patrick Lacson bared that the Abang Lingkod is a brainchild of Negros congressmen for the province to gain more funds for projects.
He also disclosed that he is being considered as one of the nominees for Abang Lingkod.
Carapali Lualhati or Stephen Paduano, the national commander of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade, is reportedly being considered as the number one nominee.
President Benigno Aquino III, during his visit to the province last year, met with the group at the Negros Occidental Multi-Purpose Activity Center. (Teresa D. Ellera)
