Gov Defensor’s transfer to Duterte party a big loss for LP, says Leni


The shift of Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. to Duterte’s political party means a big loss for the Liberal Party, according to Vice President Leni Robredo.

Defensor, with his sons Rep. Art Defensor Jr. and Iloilo Provincial Board Member Lorenz Defensor, will soon take his oath with PDP-Laban on December 1.

“Si governor has been a staunch partner. Hindi lang defender and supporter pero partner sa maraming bagay. Isang hinahangaan na public official,” Robredo said in a Panay News report.

Defensor earlier said that his decision was based on people’s best interests.
