The Sangguniang Panlalawigan yesterday passed a resolution declaring Negros Occidental under a state of calamity, which means the local government units in the province can now start using their calamity funds to address the impact of the El Niño phenomenon in their areas.
The SP, on motion of Board Member Pedro Zayco, chairperson of the SP committee on Natural Calamities and Disaster, concurred with the declaration of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council placing Negros Occidental under a state of calamity.
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that reports that the ratings of Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas in the Visayas dropped in the latest Pulse Asia survey do not reflect the situation on the ground.
The Pulse Asia survey conducted April 16 to 20 shows Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in the lead for the presidency with 35 percentage points, followed by Senator Grace Poe at 23 percent, Roxas - 17 percent, Vice President Jejomar Binay – 16 percent and Miriam Defensor Santiago -- 2 percent.
