NEGROS Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said Monday, September 25, the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) is also recruiting more members soon.
Lacson said they are very much aware of the mass-oath taking of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas Ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in the province on October 5.
He added that they will look for available politicians who will be willing to transfer to the NPC.
The mass oath-taking of PDP-Laban at Victorias City Coliseum was confirmed by Third District Representative Alfredo Benitez.
Benitez and Lacson both belong to Love Negros, a political group in the province.
Lacson denied reports that he is the new provincial chairman of the NPC.
He said that Kabankalan City Mayor Isidro Zayco and Sixth District Representative Mercedes Alvarez were named to the party's Advisory Council.
Lacson had earlier said he sees no reason to transfer to another party since the NPC and PDP-Laban is in a “working coalition.” (TDE)
