PNoy acts on Negros needs,
study of airport expansion set

President Benigno Aquino III Saturday acted on the needs of the mayors of Negros Occidental, including a call for the expansion of the Bacolod-Silay Airport runway and terminal, Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said.

The governor said Silay Mayor Jose Montelibano asked for the expansion of the airport runway and terminal, which was approved.
However, Transportation and Communication Secretary Mar Roxas told the DAILY STAR the airport expansion requests would have to be studied first before any decision is finally made.moremoremore

LP now 2nd biggest
party in Negros


President Benigno Aquino III witnessed the mass oath taking of 230 new Negrense Liberal Party members Saturday afternoon at Nature’s Village Resort in Talisay City, making the LP that was almost non-existent in Negros Occidental in the past, the second biggest political party in the province.

Transportation and Communication Secretary Mar Roxas, who administered the oath as LP president, said the new LP members must be true believers in the party’s platform that upholds freedom, fights corruption, respects the democratic rule and takes responsibility for the nation’s future.

Members of the LP must be exemplars of the President’s “matuwid na daan (straight path”) of government and put the needs of the people as their bosses first, and not their personal political interest, Roxas said.moremoremore
