Attached are copies of official Comelec documents on party affiliations in Agusan del Sur at the provincial (1) and city (1) and municipal (13) levels.
Partido Liberal is now rebuilding itself to become a genuine people’s party. We invite those who want to join the party to sign up online via partidoliberal.ph.
*Mass exodus of LP execs to PDP-Laban
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:10 AM February 10, 2018
PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur—All of the province’s officials—from governor to village leaders—took oaths of office as members of the ruling party Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), abandoning Liberal Party (LP).
At least 3,366 erstwhile LP members were administered oaths of membership in PDP-Laban by Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.
Gov. Adolph Edward Plaza said the officials joined the ruling party for the good of the province. President Duterte lost the presidential race to LP standard bearer Mar Roxas in the province by 34,744 votes. —CHRIS PANGANIBAN
