Cuenco wants ban on early campaigningCebu Daily News
FORMER Cebu City south district representative Antonio Cuenco wants to ban premature election campaigning.
The veteran politician who has made known his intention to run for the congressional seat in the south district of Cebu City said allowing politicians to promote their candidacies before the official campaign period is unfair to candidates who do not have money.
Another law he said he would be pushing would be the law that would grant financial subsidies to political parties.
Cuenco said that passage of the bill will allow political parties to get government subsidy equivalent to how much they are allowed to spend in an election.
Meanwhile, Cuenco said that he wanted a bill passed to rename the Mambaling flyover after the late press secretary Cerge Remonde.
The P110 million flyover was completed last year. Another P100 million was released this year for its improvement, the widening of nearby roads and the developed of an access road to the South Road Properties (SRP)./Chief of Correspondents Doris C. Bongcac
