Duterte welcomes choice of village chiefs for ABC-A A +A
Tuesday, December 17, 2013
DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte expressed support to the candidacy of his daughter-in-law Catalunan Grande barangay captain January Duterte as the next Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) president.
“It’s the overwhelming choice of the barangay captains,” Duterte said.
Although he was expecting former councilor and Ilang village chief Arnulfo Cabling to seek the position, but the councilors, he said, has a “better choice.”
Cabling expressed his intention of running as the ABC president, but later withdrew his candidacy to give way for the lady Duterte.
Whoever wins as the ABC or Liga president will earn a seat in the City Council.
The election for the ABC president will be held today, December 18, according to the Department of Interior and Local Government. (Arianne Caryl N. Casas/Sun.Star Davao)
