5 Negros rallies draw 60,000,
victory ‘unstoppable’ - Lim-ao

The campaign sorties of Nationalist People’s Coalition gubernatorial candidate Genaro Alvarez Jr. and his running mate, Eugenio Jose Lacson, yesterday drew a crowd totaling about 60,000 to the rallies they held in the cities of San Carlos and Victorias, La Castellana, EB Magalona and Murcia, Negros Occidental, organizers said.

Alvarez said that, based on the huge crowds that have always attended their campaigns sorties since last month, he may conclude that their victory is “clear as the skies”. “This can be translated into a winnable strength come election day,” he added.

Rep. Alfredo Benitez, Liberal Party provincial chairman, joined Alvarez in the Victorias City and Murcia “miting de avances” last night, that had skipped EB Magalona, while Lacson also joined Alvarez in campaign sorties in EB Magalona and La Castellana, before proceeding to a similar rally in San Carlos City.moremoremore
