A new date for the oath-taking ceremony of Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. to Duterte’s party was set.

A report in The Daily Guardian said Defensor’s PDP-Laban oathtaking was moved from December 1 to January 2018 due to a scheduling conflict.

“(House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez) requested that we hold the ceremony after Christmas. So it will happen in January. I think we will do it before Dinagyang,” the politiko said.

This was the second time Defensor’s formal transfer was postponed. He was initially scheduled to swear in as new PDP-Laban member on November 23.
