The Philippine Councilors League (PCL) – Bohol Chapter during a two-day election next week will choose its officials including its president, who will be accorded a seat at the Provincial Board as an ex-officio member.
The PCL which has over 400 members in the province will hold its elections at the Bohol Tropics Resort in Tagbilaran City on September 13 and 14, said the group’s interim federation president and ex-officio Board Member Arnulfo Turco.
Danilo Dayanghirang, PCL national chairman, was invited to join the event as guest of honor, Turco said.
Department of Interior and Local Government provincial director Johnjoan Mende who is also set to deliver an address during the event will oversee the polls as the election chairman.
Baclayon Councilor Jodel Cabahug of the Tinuod Bol-anon coalition and Loay Councilor Jecelo Adiong of the Padayon Bol-anon coalition were the only PCL members who were publicly seen campaigning for their bid for the group’s presidency.
Both made rounds and wooed councilors in Tagbilaran City and various towns in the past weeks.
Several other names earlier surfaced as possible contenders for the top PCL post including Councilors Agustinus Gonzaga and Jonas Cacho of Tagbilaran City, Sikatuna Councilor Constancio Rule, Panglao Councilor Dennis Hora and Anda Councilor Ferdinand Berongoy.
Adiong however was chosen by the Padayon Bol-anon to be its standard bearer over Berongoy, Gonzaga and Cacho. Rule and Hora meanwhile were not publicly seen campaigning for the post. (RT)
