Estrada, Singson reconcile; Chavit supports UNA

Gov. Chavit Singson has vowed to support the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).

Senatorial bet JV Ejercito can now expect support from Singson who said that he has patched things up with former president Estrada.

“Yung hindi namin pagkakaintindihan ni Pareng Erap, kung anumang pagkukulang ko, dito ko na ibubuhos kay JV (Whatever misudenrstanding I have with my friend Erap, whatever inadequacies, I will pour it out on JV)” 

This is according to Singson who accused Estrada of involvement in illegal gambling in the country.

JV said the reconciliation between Singson and his father started when his grandmother, Doña Mary Ejercito, died in 2009.

Singson said the mayors of the province would campaign for UNA.

UNA met with the candidates of its local party Bileg on Saturday, April 20, during a luncheon hosted by the governor and his sons.

Former Ilocos Sur Representative Ronald Singson is seeking for the position he vacated after he was convicted in Hong Kong for drug trafficking. He was replaced by younger brother, Ryan Luis, who is now running for governor to replace his father. Governor Chavit will no longer seek a government position.

Ilocos Sur, one of the four provinces in the Ilocos region, has about 400,000 voters.

Movement against dynasty
The Movement Against Dynasties (MAD) was launched in Vigan City Sunday, April 21, at the St. Paul Cathedral simultaneous with the mass celebrated. 

MAD Chairman Kenley Paredes gave his speech after the mass. The group also joined the procession. Present during the mass were senatorial bets Miguel Zubiri and Tingting Cojuangco.

In  Ilocos Sur, 18 of the 33 municipailites or 54.54% is lorded over one family.

Ten municipalities and cities have an unchallenged mayor and vice mayor (Alilem, Bantay, Candon City, Quirino, Salcedo, San Esteban, Sta. Cruz, Santiago, Sto. Domingo, and Vigan City).

The Archdiocese of Nueva Segovia posted a tarpaulin in front of the St. Paul Cathedral showing their opposition against black sand mining in Ilocos Sur.
