Labella awaits IATF decision on Misa de Gallo


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella will wait for the decision of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases on the upcoming Misa de Gallo.

Labella said he expects a pronouncement on the issue soon.

“I will just wait because I do not want to preempt. I may have my own position on the matter, but of course, it will always be subject to the pronouncement of the Inter-Agency Task Force,” he added. (

The mayor said a member of IATF told him to wait for a few more days.

The Misa de Gallo needs to be studied as there are things that need to be reconciled such as the curfew, according to Labella.
