Love Negros focuses
on bets for 6 districts
BUT NOT READY FOR ANNOUNCEMENT YET
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Love Negros officials met in Bacolod City Saturday to discuss their potential candidates for the first to sixth districts of Negros Occidental for 2016, Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said yesterday.
But they did not discuss whom they will field for governor and vice governor yet, he added.
“We focused on the status of the six congressional districts of the province. Although we covered a lot of ground, LN is not ready to make an announcement. We will take our time in reaching a decision,” he said.
Valenzuela Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian yesterday debunked claims of perceived cracks within the Nationalist People's Coalition, with its members supporting different presidential candidates in the May elections next year.
Gatchalian, who has been a member of the NPC since 2001, said the “NPC remains to be a solid party”.
He, however, admitted that many NPC members are very vocal, while others are silent, on their preferred presidential candidates, and the party respects their individual opinions. But at the end of the day, “We expect party members to toe the line and support a single candidate”.

Cops intensify campaign vs. drugs
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Law enforcement agencies tasked in curbing the proliferation of illegal drugs in Negros Oriental were directed to hit hard on suppliers and dealers, especially of shabu, Senior Insp. Ryan Jay Orapa, team leader of the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group, said.
He said all law enforcement agencies will concentrate in one area that is considered a hot spot for shabu and conduct a saturation drive, before transferring to another hot spot.
