No alliances with

“No way..”

That is what Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said about rumors that

he is forming an alliance with other groups outside of the Nationalist People’s Coalition-Grupo Progreso.

Leonardia said it is very clear that, as far as Grupo Progreso is concerned, they have no problem with each other.

“I categorically state for the record that there is no deal or arrangement with other groups that are not from the NPC-Grupo Progreso,” he said.

Because other people see that their group is solid and united, they are trying to sow intrigues to destroy it, he added.

But, Leonardia said, “Time has proven us, and we have worked as Grupo Progreso in the last three elections, and had marched to victory. So, there is no sense in fixing what is not broken.”

He said they have a very solid and united group and this unity is even improving. That is why some people are trying to sow intrigues among them by such nonsense issues as having alliances with other people, he added.

Leonardia recalled that he coined the word Grupo Progreso because it seemed very relevant then, and is still very relevant until now, so it is on the same platform that they will continue to offer themselves to the people of Bacolod, he said.*CGS
