Oriental Mindoro Gov. Dolor backs federal form of government
Oriental Mindoro Governor Humerlito “Bonz” Dolor has backed the proposed shift to a federal form of government from the current unitary.
The Constitutional Reform (CORE) Convention Rally initiated by the DILG was held in Bulwagang Panlalawigan of Oriental Mindoro recently.
More than a thousand Mindoreños attended the said rally.
Dolor said that he supports federal form of government ever since he was a college student.
“Ang tanong, bakit hanggang ngayon, sa kabila ng pagkakawatak-watak ng mga isla ng Pilipinas, ay nananatili tayong centralized sa pamahalaan, sa iisang makapangyarihang institusyon,” said Dolor.
He also explained that the Philippines will remain united despite the federal form of government.
“Hindi na kinakailangan nating umasa lagi sa pamahalaang nasyunal,” he said.
“Kung sama-sama tayong gagawa para sa ating lalawigan ay aayos ito,” he added.
Present during the event were CFCR Project Development Officer Al Ghafar Iribani, DILG Oriental Mindoro Outcome Manager Maria Victoria J. Del Rosario, and DILG Program Manager Dennis S. Beltran.
