Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III said his appointment of defeated Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) federation presidential bet Marie Antoinette Gallos as Executive Assistant for Youth and Sports will not be in conflict with the function of SK federation president Leila Luntao.

Luntao sits as an ex-officio member of the Iloilo City Council.

Espinosa said Gallos will assist him in the city government’s anti-drug campaign.

“The SK organization focuses on the governance aspect. It is more on legislation being a member of the City Council,” he said.

“Gallos’ appointment is under the Office of the Mayor. So if there is a need for legislation, we will be working with SK,” Espinosa added.
