More solons to fight for
Negros in House

The proclamation by the Commission on Elections of Bayan Muna and Magdalo among the 14 initial winning partylist groups yesterday gives Negros Occidental two more congressmen in the Lower House.

The two are Rep. Neri Colmenares of Bacolod for Bayan Muna and Gary Alejano of Sipalay City for Magdalo, who yesterday told the DAILY STAR they will champion the cause of Negrenses in the House and provide projects for their home province.

Also on Colmenares’ agenda is the revival of Bayan Muna’s push for the enactment into law in the next Congress of a bill that will provide for a P125 across-the-board increase in the salaries of employees in the private sector.moremoremore
