Legazpi, Albay Mayor Rosal named Bicol peace and order council head


The mayor of Albay’s capital city can now claim to being “the man” in the Bicol region as far as peace and order is concerned.

This, after Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal was appointed by no less than Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Ismael Sueno as chair of the Regional Peace & Order Council (RPOC) for the Bicol region.

This Facebook post Tuesday evening (January 3) from Legazpi Councilor Vince Baltazar showed the mayor receiving his appointment paper, which bears both Sueno and President Rodrigo Duterte’s signatures.

Sueno serves as National Peace & Order Council (NPOC) chairman.

“Congratulations Idol!” Baltazar commented jovially, in obvious reference to Rosal.

The mayor instantly had the document framed, so the appointment was definitely a big deal to him, too.
