UNegA a ‘strong political force’ in next polls: Mayor Escalante


Cadiz City Mayor Salvador Escalante, Jr. said the United Negros Alliance (UNegA), one of the major political parties in Negros Occidental, is “a force in the coming elections.”

Escalante made the statement during the gathering of UNegA members at Nature’s Village Resort in Talisay City last week.

Former Governor Alfredo Marañon, Jr. and incumbent Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer were present at the event. (

Escalante, UNegA secretary-general, said the gathering allowed members to see that the former government was doing well.

“The former governor (Marañon) emphasized that the party will continue to exist even though he is no longer in public office,” he added.
