Negros not Roxas
turf: Duterte camp

Supporters of Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, PDP Laban presidential candidate, who will be in Bacolod City with his runningmate Alan Peter Cayetano today, said Negros Occidental is not Mar Roxas country.

“Negros Occidental is not Mar country. We advise them to conduct an impartial survey on trisikad drivers, fisherfolk, vendors, and the common tao. They're the best barometer of the Negros pulse,” Salvador Benedicto Mayor Josemax Ortiz said yesterday.

The governor, both vice gubernatorial candidates and most mayors of Negros are for Roxas, but Duterte's supporters are directly depending on the people, JV Hinlo, PDP Laban Region 18 head and one of the convenors of the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte National Executive Coordinating Committee, said.

Duterte and Cayetano will be in Negros Occidental today to present their electoral message of creating real change and restoring order in the country, a media advisory from their camp said.

They will hold a Town Hall Meeting with sugar planters and businessmen at the SMX Convention Center in Bacolod City at 2 p.m., where they will present their platform of government, that includes achieving inclusive growth through regional development, it said.

The duo will also conduct a “Ronda-Serye” tour with transport groups, wherein they will listen to the sector's basic concerns and present their bold solutions to address their woes, the advisory added.

A rally at the Barangay Tangub gym in Bacolod is also set 3 p.m. today, Hinlo said.*CPG
