Malacaņang hopes next President brings genuine reconciliation
Manila (4 June) -- In a press briefing recently, a Malacaņang official puts hope on the inauguration of the incoming President to bring national reconciliation to the country.
According to Deputy Presidential Spokesman Rogelio Peyuan, the outgoing administration hopes that all the wounds will heal in due time after political divisiveness beset the country for a long time.
In local politics, former Deputy Presidential Spokesman and now Congressman-elect for the Lone District of Bacolod Dr. Anthony Golez calls for healing saying it has gotten into the lives of the people in the city for many years now.
"The city was divided and so was genuine public service," Golez said in his message during his oath taking recently.
Golez added that before solutions are being implemented, before anything else, there is a need to heal our politics, heal our people and heal our city.
Also, Negros Occidental-elect Alfredo Maraņon extends his hands of reconciliation to his opponents during elections.
Maraņon calls for unity for the progress and development of Negros Occidental.
With the National Board of Canvassers set to proclaim the official winners for President and Vice President on Monday, Peyuan said that outgoing President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will extend her hand to the next President as a gesture of reconciliation.
It is the outgoing administration's desire to have a smooth transition and reconciliation, the official added. (PIA/EAD) [top]
