Degamo proposal to create 3rd Negros province a diversionary tactic, says mayor

Inquirer Breaking News - 1 hour 4 min ago
BACOLOD CITY --- Mayor Renato Gustilo of San Carlos City in Negros Occidental said on Friday, February 3, that the proposal of Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo to create a third province on Negros Island is nothing but a diversionary tactic. Gustilo pointed out that a translink highway has been made to shorten the travel time between San Carlos and Bacolod, and there is no need for a new province. "Degamo is really wise to divert the attention away from the creation of the NIR (Negros Island Region)," he said. Degamo, in a meeting with Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson last Wednesday, said the new region should include four provinces to ensure equal voting at Regional D...
