Talisay mayor endorses Duterte-Cayetano tandem


Talisay City Mayor Johnny Delos Reyes, a member of the ruling Liberal Party (LP), has thrown his support to presidential bet Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and his running mate Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano in the upcoming May 9 polls.

Duterte formally accepted the endorsement in a courtesy call on the mayor on Monday afternoon.

De los Reyes earlier withdrew his support for LP standard-bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and his running mate, Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, because the former interior chief acknowledge former Rep. Eduardo Gullas, the mayor’s rival in his reelection bid, at an LP campaign rally in Mandaue City early this month.

The mayor, however, clarified that he is staying with the administration party.
