Liga ng mga Barangay President Gerry Perez assumed his post as ex-officio member of the Sangguniang Panlungsod after taking his oath of office from Mayor Beng Climaco shortly before the local legislative body convened its maiden session yesterday morning.

Perez, chairman of barangay Putik, took over the SP post long held by Taluksangay Captain Abdurahman Nuño who lost to the former in the election for president of the Liga ng mga Barangay last Dec. 18, 2013 at the Garden Orchid Hotel.

He will have a three-year term and is entitled to all privileges of a regular member of the City Council pursuant to Section 494 of the Local Government Code of 1991.

Present during his oath-taking yesterday morning were members of his immediate family, Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde, City Secretary Zenaida Jayme together with Councilors Myra Paz Valderrosa-Abubakar, Melchor Sadain and some council staff. — Vic Larato
