Osmeña council allies still intact


City councilors from the Bando Osmeña Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK) of outgoing Mayor Tomas Osmeña remains intact, according to Councilor Sisinio Andales.

The Freeman reported that Andales had to do a loyalty check among BOPK councilors.

“They have committed verbally that they will stay with BOPK,” Andales said despite the announcement of Councilor David Tumulak that he will support the administration of Mayor-elect Edgardo Labella.

According to him, supporting Labella does not mean shifting political allegiance.

“To support the program of mayor-elect Labella does not mean shifting of party affiliation. We remain to be BOPK. We will see by July how BOPK will end up as,” he added.
