President Benigno Aquino III has appointed Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. as chairperson of the Regional Development Council of Western Visayas.
Aquino, who signed the appointment of Marañon on September 12, said the RDC chairperson will serve a term of three years that should coincide with his regular term as local elective official.
A policeman, who responded to a rumble at the Food Park, at 21st-Lacson streets in Bacolod City was stabbed by a minor, at about 11 p.m. Saturday.
Police Officer 1 Ryan Lumogdang, of Police Station 2, sustained two stab wounds on his arm and was brought to the Dr. Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital, the station’s head, Inspector Stephen Boniba, said yesterday.
