Guv backs incumbent ABC federation president-A A +A
Monday, December 16, 2013
GOVERNOR Roel Degamo confirmed on Monday that he is committed to support the candidacy of incumbent Association of Barangay Captain (ABC) Federation President Arnulfo Teves.
In an interview with local media, Degamo said he just wanted to give the members of the association the freedom to choose who will be the next ABC Federation President.
But he challenged to commit to support the incumbent officials following reports that a high ranking elected official in the province is endorsing another candidate just to oppose the programs and projects of the governor.
Degamo, however, refused to name names but said this high-ranking elected officials is already proclaimed the public to seek the position of governorship in the 2016 elections.
Teves, a grandson of a political kingpin former representative Herminio Teves and a nephew of his recent opponent Margarito Teves, is supportive to Degamo’s administration.
