Lacson gets warm Dumaguete welcome, shatters ‘zero’ survey finding
MANILA, Philippines — Independent presidential bet Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson was given a warm welcome in Dumaguete, thereby shattering a survey firm’s findings that he has zero support in the Visayas region.
The senator was accorded a rousing welcome in Dumaguete City where he and senatorial bet Emmanuel Piñol arrived early morning.
He was met by Elsie Lee and her family upon his arrival. Mrs. Lee’s son Emmanuel Gaisano was a kidnap-for-ransom victim who Lacson rescued during his law enforcement days.
Lacson and Piñol were feted at the Lee Plaza before they paid a courtesy call on Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo at City Hall.
Several residents attended the town hall meeting he and Pinol attended.
Lacson on Tuesday rejected the findings of Pulse Asia indicating he got only 2% in the presidential race – and zero in Visayas and Mindanao.
He said he would rather wait for the results of the May 9 elections.
Lacson also called on his supporters, both silent and active, to cast their votes on Election Day this coming Monday.
