Rep. Alfredo Abelardo “Albee” Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) yesterday bared the names of nine Lakas CMD mayors in Negros Occidental who will be sworn into the Liberal Party at a convention set at Natures Village Resort in Talisay City Saturday.

Benitez said more than nine of the 32 mayors in Negros Occidental will join LP but he will reveal the names of the rest later.

There was still no confirmation on whether President Benigno Aquino III, LP chairman, would attend the party’s convention in Talisay City Saturday to swear in the new members, Benitez said.moremoremore

“I am looking forward to the day where we could have a dialog,” Bautista said, referring to Fernandez, and adding that he has high respect for him, being a former priest.moremoremore
