Zubiri’s resignation loss
to sugar industry, Negros

The resignation of Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri from the Senate is a big loss to Negros Occidental and the sugar industry, Negrense leaders said yesterday.

Zubiri, whose father is from Kabankalan City, in a privilege speech yesterday afternoon delivered before the Senate, said he was resigning with honor and dignity, amid claims that he benefited from alleged cheating in the 2007 senatorial elections.

”I did not cheat nor ask anyone to cheat for me and my family. We would never tolerate any form of electoral fraud,” Zubiri said.moremoremore
