Bichara, Rosal meet for smooth transition of power


Outgoing Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara has met with his successor Legazpi Mayor Noel Rosal.

The two officials discussed the turn over of responsibility to ensure a smooth transition of power.

“To ensure an effective turnover of responsibility, ensure smooth transition and continuity in good local governance, Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara conducted a Local Governance Transition Meeting with incoming Governor Noel Rosal,” said the governor’s office.

Rosal defeated Bichara in the May 2022 elections.

During the said meeting, the documentation of the Provincial Government of Albay Transition Team was discussed and handed over to the incoming Administration.

“It may be noted that early this month, the PGA with the DILG Region V started the documentation through a meeting in response to Executive Order No. 12, an Order creating the Provincial Local Governance Transition Team of the Province of Albay issued by Gov. Bichara,” said the office.
