Opposition to still criticize city on wrongdoings-A A +A
Saturday, December 1, 2012
THE opposition group will continue to criticize the City Hall if they see there are anomalies or irregularities committed, said Councilor Neil Glova.
Glova was asked to comment on the recent plea of City Information Officer Bernardita Valenzuela, Mayor Alfred Romualdez’s spokesperson.
Valenzuela, in a radio interview, has called for a month’s ceasefire on the attacks of the opposition against the City Hall.
However, Glova said Valenzuela’s call is impossible to be made.
“What we are doing is part of our job and it is our job being in the opposition to criticize the administration if we see something wrong in what they are doing,” Glova said.
Glova also said that all their accusations and criticisms are backed with proofs, which make them eager to expose all the wrongdoings of the present administration.
“Public service doesn’t stop during Christmas season. We will continue criticizing the City Government for as long as there are anomalies,” he said.
Glova together with Vice Mayor Arvin Antoni and Councilor Jerry Uy are Romualdez’s most vocal critics making allegations ranging from illegal transactions to buying awards like the recent Gawad Pamana ng Lahi bestowed by the Department of the Interior and Local Government.
The City Hall called their allegations as baseless and does not reflect their being officials of Tacloban. (Leyte Samar Daily Express)
