MAYOR SARAH DUTERTE CHOOSES REP. GWEN GARCIA AS HNP CEBU GUBERNATORIAL BET



The alliance between Davao City Mayor Sarah Duterte of Hukbong Ng Pagbabago (HNP) and Cebu gubernatorial bet, 3rd district congresswoman Gwen Garcia of One Cebu will finally be sealed in the municipality of Liloan, Cebu today, March 22, it was learned yesterday.

            Liloan which is part of the fifth district of Cebu was able to capture the biggest vote President Rodrigo Duterte got in Cebu in the last presidential election.  

            Sara and Gwen are expected to sign a formal agreement on their alliance. Mayor Duterte was earlier reported to prefer to stay neutral on who HNP will support as Cebu candidates in the coming local elections. 

            The alliance is seen as a strong political tie-up between the two political parties. The HNP has similarly inked up alliances with local parties in different regions nationwide.

            One Cebu, headed by Rep.Garcia, is reportedly banking on its complete line-ups of candidates in at least 44 municipalities and 7 cities in Cebu, the report said.

            It was also learned that Mayor Duterte will be campaigning with HNP endorsed senatorial bets in their political sorties in Liloan, Cebu and Danao City starting today.
