Prevent UNA breakup,
follow process: Lim-ao

If the usual process for selecting the gubernatorial candidate of the United Negros Alliance is not followed, the party could break up, Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro “Lim-ao” Alvarez Jr. said yesterday.

But he stressed that, at the moment, there does not appear to be a split in the UNA.

Last week, Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) said that the mayors of Negros Occidental do not want to see the disintegration of UNA with a showdown between Alvarez and Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. for the gubernatorial post in 2013.moremoremore

“They must understand that flood cannot be predicted and the banks of the rivers are always the first to be affected,” he said.moremoremore
