Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said he will consult with his colleagues on the invitation to join the PDP-Laban, a political party of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Marañon, who chairs the United Negros Alliance, said he will not only consult his colleagues about the invitation, but will also pray about it.
“I will not decide alone”, he said.
Marañon said he was in Malacañang on Wednesday to take his oath as a newly elected official of the League of Provinces of the Philippines..
But Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo admitted that he already joined PDP-Laban three months ago, like Rep. Alfredo Benitez (3rd district, Negros Occidental).
Marañon and Degamo had supported the presidential bid of Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas in the May polls.*GPB
