Bawal immature: Benitez sees no problem with Negros’ warring politikos joining PDP-Laban
Negros Occidental Rep. Alfredo Benitez is looking forward to the oath-taking of officials of two major political groups in his province on October 1 with the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).
Unega chairman Governor Alfredo Marañon and his staunch critic from political party Love Negros, Moises Padilla Mayor Magdaleno Peña are set to pledge allegiance to PDP-Laban, led by President Rodrigo Duterte.
Benitez said he is optimistic that the two can work together “harmoniously” under one political party.
“They are old enough to make it harmonious,” he said.
“Elections are over, there is no distinction politically at this point, this not the time to talk politics. It is time to get down to work for our province and country,” he added.
Love Negros is led by third district Representative Alfredo Benitez and Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson.
Joining PDP-Laban are 10 mayors from UNega and nine from Love Negros.
