Moreno woos Bugkalot tribesmen
NAGTIPUNAN, Quirino — Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso became the first presidential aspirant to meet with some 4,000 Bugkalot and Ifugao tribesmen in this province and nearby Nueva Vizcaya. Moreno said he would push for the indigenous peoples’ rights and strengthen the tourism sector in the country.
Despite the “Solid North” bailiwick of rival Ferdinand Marcos Jr., Moreno said he believed he would get a significant number of votes from provinces in northern Luzon because of what he has to offer them. He was backed by Bugkalot chieftain Rosario Camma, who is running for governor of Quirino.
