would not even confirm who the LP choice will
be for president. But the LP has no other choice
but Roxas. Yet a PNoy vice president with Roxas
could spell the difference.
There is a big possibility that the Liberal Party echelon in Negros Oriental may be headed to a major
split should the incumbent governor decide to join and be accepted by the administration party.
The meeting of Blue Ribbon Committee chair Sen.
TG Guingona with the Governor, the support of Degamo
to the Negros Region of Mar Roxas, and his perceived
desire to join the LP according to former Dumaguete City
mayor Felipe Remollo are more than bold sign languages
that tend to show that Degamo is headed to join the Liberals.
Certainly the old LP guards will not take it sitting down, headed by their woman head Josy Sy-Limkaichong
in the north who is the local party titular head. This was
also confirmed by Remollo who told the CHRONCLE
that he has relinquished his LP leadership in the province
But Remollo has brought Senator Guingona to a
meeting with Degamo who reportedly joined their fellowship with the Remollo clan
and the Bais groups of

Negros Oriental will be the seat of at least 16
regional offices of major and coveted national
line agencies, including the attached bureaus
and divisions as part of the administrative union of
the Negros Island Region envisioned to be operational
in January 2016.
The Technical Working Groups of the province of
Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental met Friday at the
national office of the Department of Interior and Local
Government with Secretary Mar Roxas presiding to finalize
the division of regional offices that will be set up in the
cities of Dumaguete and Bacolod during the transition period.
The Negros Island Region will also be referred to as
Vice-Governor Mark Macias lauded the delegation
from Negros Occidental led by Governor Alfredo Maranon
for being gracious enough to give the Oriental side the first
crack in choosing which national agencies will hold its regional
offices in Dumaguete City.
No problem if Mar Roxas makes
it. But if someone else like Jojo
Binay or Grace Poe will win the
presidency, will they support
the Negros Island Region which was only
created by an Executive order (EO183) by
a past president who was with their
political rival party?
This is a high-risk question on
Negros Island Region knowing that the
new president can revoke such executive
order, EO183 anytime, unless it becomes
a Congressional enactment.
Moreover, the Supreme Court will be
petitioned shortly by militant groups to
have E0183 creating Negros Island Region
abolished . The highest tribunal
might yet give due course to the constitutional
attack made against one Negros
Region by BAYAN which is intending to
file such case starting with the lower
Technical Working Group (TWG) senior
member Dr Henry Sojor, former president
of the Norsu State University said
that “there is nothing we can do if the
new president abolishes Negros Island
Region which is only an administrative
creation.” Ditto if the Supreme Court decides
otherwise with finality.
