GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines – Otso Diretso senatorial candidates took their campaign to Mindanao for the first time as they arrived here Thursday morning.

Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano, Marawi civic leader Samira Gutoc and former congressman Erin Tañada arrived at the airport at about 9 a.m. to campaign in this bailiwick of Senator Manny Pacquiao.


The opposition senatorial aspirants’ motorcade will head to the General Santos city public market before a ceremonial adoption by the Saguda Buayan Tribe in Barangay Labangal.

They will then have lunch with indigenous people leaders.


The Otso Diretso candidates are expected to cap the day with a multisectoral dialogue co-organized by the Akbayan party-list in Barangay Fatima. /cbb
