Greg joining GMA
trip to Switzerland


Bacolod Rep. Greg Gasataya said he was invited to be part of the 8-man delegation headed by House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to attend the 139th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Switzerland from Oct. 14 to 18.

Gasataya said the delegation includes Senators Ralph Recto, Franklin Drilon and Panfilo Lacson and four congressmen.

He said the Inter-Parliamentary Union is one of the oldest organizations of different parliaments in the world, and is composed of more than 170 nations.

Mayor Evelio Leonardia said they were supposed to file their certificate of candidacy on October 15 to obtain a 15-0 victory in the May 2019 midterm elections.

However, since Gasataya is leaving for Switzerland, they decided to file their COCs on Thursday, which was the first day of filing, for purposes of team play, he said

Leonardia said this is a testimony that they can work as a team.*
