Neg. Occ. politics
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Politics in Negros Occidental is heating up.
Sugar Regulatory Administrator Rafael Coscolluela yesterday said there is a 75 percent chance he will run for governor in 2010, he is in the middle of deliberations with his own core group and known allies in Negros Occidental.
“I am inclined more towards running and hope to make a decision by the end of the week…If I run it will be as an independent,” he said, but added he is not ruling out an alliance with the Lakas-Kampi-CMD.
“As the final chapter in my public life, I would like to be able to do something more in the service of the province. That will be expressed in a program of government at the proper time,” Coscolluela, a former three-term governor of Negros Occidental, said.
