“I am more than pleased to be of help to the Commission on Elections,” the mayor said.

“May the agreement we have just signed become a core motivation for us to maximize our potential to provide better services for the people and the community,” he added.

Guanzon thanked Treñas and the other Iloilo City officials for providing a permanent home for the Comelec regional, provincial and city offices.
