Degamo supporters
hit ‘dismissal' order

Hundreds of people from different walks of life in Negros Oriental trooped to the Capitol yesterday morning to throw their support to re-elected Gov. Roel Degamo, following a radio announcement that he was no longer the province's chief executive.

Some of the supporters blocked the main entrance to the Capitol while some tricycles also parked in front of the building's steps as the numbers increased by the hour.

A tricycle even had a public address system over which some people took turns speaking out their sentiments regarding the supposed dismissal of the governor.moremoremore
