Members of the League of Cities of the Philippines marched towards the Supreme Court building yesterday morning to file their motion for reconsideration, challenging the constitutionality of the 16 cityhood laws passed during the 14th Congress, for failure to comply with the requirements set by law.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia, LCP executive vice president, yesterday said the motion for reconsideration they have filed is anchored on the prayer of the mayors that the Supreme Court reinstate its Nov. 18, 2008 decision declaring the creation of 16 new cities illegal and unconstitutional.moremoremore
