Should negotiations fail, there is possibility that Daluz and Rama will be seeking the same post in next year’s polls, he added.As for, Garcia said that the launching of Panaghiusa was a welcome development for his party because the plan was to really form a strong alliance between the three parties.

He said that the coalition should have only one candidate for the mayorship post, and he would “gladly” be the running mate of either Daluz or Rama as long as the party would decide on one.“Dapat usa ra sad gyod ang mayor. Either nila duha, comfortable ra man ko,” added Garcia.
