Gov. Petilla espouses
political peace among Leyte constituents
TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte – In
seeking for another term in Leyte’s gubernatorial post, Gov. Carlos Jericho
“Icot” Petilla said he is espousing “political peace” this time in the province
to better achieve the plans and programs he vows to continue on his second term.
This the governor was alluding
to reports that some parties and sectors of the Leyte’s constituency is still
not in total agreement to the unification effort between political incumbents
and aspirants under the same wing of the ruling administration party.
“I know nga dinhi ha aton,
damo nga mga tawo an nadiri hini nga unification. Kay pulong nira waray kuno
damo nga kuarta it magkakalupad during election,” Gov. Petilla said.
However he said his
administration is trying to preserve “political peace” as it is part and a main
ingredient in combating the many problems that the province faces.
“Peace should be achieved at
all costs. It is a main ingredient if we want to progress and combat problems in
Leyte. Mahihimo la naton ini kon magbuburubligay ngan kon waray samok,” he said.
It can be recalled that
unification was forged among the administration’s political allies in the
province, to name, the Petillas and the Romualdezes of Leyte, who are recognized
as the dominant names in the political arena in this side of the country.
However, despite the agreement
and with the campaign period coming to a full swing, political observers say,
the agreement between the two families can still be tipped over with the
deadline of substitution for candidates to reign in on May 7, seven days before
the slated polls.
