MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III cancelled his trip to Dumaguete City Tuesday because of intense rain spawned by tropical depression “Crising.’’

Aquino was scheduled to inaugurate the Qualfon Building of the Link Sy IT Park in Barangay (village) Bantayan Tuesday morning  and meet with local leaders at the Lamberto Macias Sports and Cultural Center later at around 2:30 p.m.

“Yes it’s been canceled due to weather conditions,’’ Brig. Gen. Ramon Dizon, chief of the Presidential Security Group, said in a text message.

Aquino, however, would push through with his trip to Talisay City, Cebu for Tuesday night’s meeting with local leaders, Malacañang spokeswoman Abigail Valte said, quoting Dizon.

    Please President Aquino visit the poor and the less fortunate.

    Please visit the victims of typhoon ‘Pablo’ and help them, assist them, support them.

    You were able to visit Switzerland the other month…how about these poverty stricken Filipinos…they are much closer to you than Switzerland so the traveling distance cannot be an excuse.

    It’s work, Pnoy is okay cancelling that. What he can’t afford to cancel are trips where team Pnoy are going to hold their campaign rallies on. Pnoy would pass on work for campaigning. Actually, is there any difference between work and campaigning for Pnoy?
