We’ll work to prevent
breakup of UNA - guv
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said he will abide by the collective decision of the top United Negros Alliance officials in their choice of the party’s gubernatorial bet, and will work to ensure that the party does not break up.

Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr., who had earlier announced that he is the Nationalist People’s Coalition choice for governor of Negros Occidental, yesterday said he cannot comment on the UNA selection process yet because he does not know what method will be adopted.

Alvarez is also a member of UNA, which is a formidable coalition of Negros Occidental officials belonging to different national parties.moremoremore

Ibuna, Lobaton, RPA head
eyeing 2013 partylist seats
BY CARLA GOMEZ

The partner of the late Rep. Ignacio Arroyo Jr. (Neg. Occ., 5th District), the estranged wife of Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel Jr., the head of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army, a former coup leader and incumbent officials of Negros Occidental are among the nominees of party-list groups seeking COMELEC inclusion in the 2013 elections.

Grace Ibuna, who is hoping to run under the Movement of Women for Change and Reform (Melchora) as its number one nominee, said that when she went around the fifth district of Negros Occidental with Arroyo she saw how women, especially those who had lost their spouses or partners, and their children needed help to cope with their loss, and empowerment to move on.

She said she wants to fight for the establishment of centers for women and children that have psychologists to help them through the pain and difficult times, and for livelihoods to help them survive.moremoremore
