CALBAYOG CITY – Six Mayors, respective Vice Mayors, Council Members, Barangay Chairman and party leaders from the Liberal Party took respective oath as members of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino Lakas ng Bayan (PDP LABAN) in a ceremony held at the city’s Convention Center on December 4, 2017.

Headed by City Mayor Ronaldo P. Aquino and five Municipal Mayors in Samar’s first legislative district, namely Gemma Zosa (Sta. Margarita), Eufemio Oliva (Gandara), Jojo Grey (San Jorge), Melissa Dela Cruz (Matuguinao) and Kathlyn Prudenciado (Almagro), led over four hundred local political leaders of the Liberal Party to swear allegiance to the ruling PDP LABAN after attending the Basic Membership Seminar (BMS) conducted by national and regional party leaders.
City Vice Mayor Diego Rivera with the honorable members of the Sangguniang Panglunsod and Municipal Vice Mayors with their respective Sangguniang Bayans joined respective local chief executives during the oath taking with barangay captains and political leaders from Calbayog and San Jorge.

Provincial PDP LABAN Party Chairman, Martin Durmiendo was present to witness and support the leaders of the district. Retired army officer, Col. Emil Zosa also attended the oath-taking.

Guided by the principles of a continued progress for respective local government units and ensuring improved lives of the constituents they serve, the local chief executives pledged loyalty to the country’s ruling party.

“Our transfer to the PDP LABAN party does not mean that the Liberal Party has done us wrong. Let us make this clear. Our transfer is because of our desire for progress. We will not achieve progress and development if we defy the ruling administration. This is not to say that we have betrayed the (Liberal) party. Our transfer is all about our desire for the progress of our respective local government units and our constituency. This is because our purpose is service to the people which is our mandate,” Mayor Aquino said in his speech during the BMS and Oath-taking ceremony.

“We have only one objective. . . and that is the development and progress of the Province of Samar. Let’s do this! Let us all work for the progress of our beloved Samar Province," Aquino emphasized after expressing his thanks to the Barangay Captains and political leaders who voluntarily lent support by also joining PDP LABAN.(CJ)
