Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan held a meeting with the next Interior chie Benhur Abalos together with other local officials.

“Inimbitahan ni DILG Secretary-designate Benhur Abalos si Representative-elect Arnan C. Panaligan sa isang pagpupulong upang pagusapan ang mga isyu tungkol sa mga local governments at peace and order matters na dapat talakayin ng DILG sa kanyang pagupo bilang Kalihim ng nasabing departamento,” said Panaligan’s office.

Also present during the meeting were Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas and Quirino Governor Dax Cua.

“Si Representative-elect Arnan C. Panaligan at Secretary-designate Benhur Abalos ay magka-klase sa kolehiyo at abogasiya at kapwa naging city mayors ng kanilang mga lungsod,” the mayor’s office said.

Panaligan, who is set to become a member of Congress representing Oriental Mindoro, earlier congratulated Abalos for being picked as DILG chief.

Abalos previously served as the chairman of the MMDA under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, replacing the late Danilo Lim who died in January 2021.

Abalos resigned as the MMDA chief last February to serve as the national campaign manager of Marcos Jr.
