District 2 Team PNoy congressional aspirant Jomar Lobregat, yesterday refuted insinuations that there will be no check and balance if and when all local administration bets, especially those running for higher positions win in the May 13 elections.

Lobregat made the clarification in the wake of reports that candidates from two opposing parties have been continually, insinuating to people during campaign sorties, that should the present Team Pnoy contenders get elected into different positions, they will connive among themselves in getting things done, thereby, setting aside transparency.

“That’s impossible, because in all governmental transactions, we have laws, rules and procedures to follow. They are just deceiving the people, so they can earn their votes”, said Lobregat.

The businessman-turned politician also cited the active role of media in Zamboanga City as one factor, that would lead city officials to think twice before resorting to conduct unbecoming.

“You, as a media man, would you just simply close your mouth and eyes, and not report the wrongdoings of your city officials?” Lobregat asked Al Alhabshi, anchorman of Wild FM’s ‘Buenas Dias Zamboanga’ program.

Lobregat clarified that voters should look at the positive side of electing him as 2nd district congressman, his brother, outgoing Mayor Celso Lobregat as 1st district congressman, Beng Climaco-Salazar as their mayor, her running mate, re-electionist Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, and all their other team mates vying for council seats in both districts.

“If all of us make it, we can assure you of a united government, a kind of government that has one direction, which is to bring Zamboanga  into a total progressive city,” Lobregat assured.

Meanwhile, in a separate radio interview, Lobregat admitted anew that while his other counterparts like Climaco-Salazar, Iturralde, and Mayor Lobregat continue to enjoy a considerable lead among their respective opponents, he is still on a tight race between and among his two other congressional contenders in the 2nd district.

“The only thing that I am happy about, is that, I continue to pick-up, and this will eventually and significantly, change to my favor come election day”, the confident Lobregat said, during RMN’s ‘Straight to the Point’ program. — PA
