PIA Press Release

May 10 elections fortify Leyte guv hold on local politics

Tacloban City (18 May) -- Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho L. Petilla has fortified further his dominance in the local politics during the May 10 elections.

Not only did he run unopposed, his allies also won all the Sangguniang Panlalawigan slots in the five districts of Leyte.

His allies also won in most of the 40 municipalities in Leyte. These and the fact that his innovative programs and projects for the province are the exact response to the needs of the people in Leyte, make Governor Petilla the man to beat in the local political arena.

For one thing, Governor Petilla goes around the province to get the pulse of the people and to know the felt need of the constituents. He is a leader who listens to the voice of the people, thus, empowering them to get a good grasp not only of what their issues are but also to be in control on what they could do about the issue. What they could not do on their own, the provincial government will complement.

During the last elections, Governor Petilla was unopposed. While other candidates would have just down with the knowledge that they will anyway win, Governor Petilla continued to go around the province not only to help his allies but to continue to serve the people.

Governor Petilla is truly a new breed of government leader. His no-nonsense style and business savvy make him stand out among politicians and business leaders alike.

The last election was a battle over political supremacy in Leyte. Gauging from the results of the first ever automated election, one would surmise to say that Governor Petilla has fortified further his stature in the political arena in Leyte. (PIA 8) [top]
