KABANKALAN CITY -- Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo did not attend the “1 Negros Island Region Summit” at the Zaycoland Resort here yesterday, but this is not an indication that he is opposed to the idea, an official said.
Board Member Arnolfo Teves Jr., Negros Oriental Liga ng mg Barangay president, who spoke in behalf of Degamo, said the governor is not opposed to the island region plan, and has said that if the majority of the people are for it, he will support the move.
Teves said the majority of the barangay captains support the island region plan, and they represent the people of Negros Oriental at the grassroots.
