      Negros Region now moribund?    

Region 18 otherwise known as the Negros Is land Region, which was created under the previous administration may soon be abolished and returned to their respective original administrative subdivisions.

It did not help that Negros Island Region’s identity has been closely linked to former Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary and Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas. In fact, the Negros region overwhelmingly delivered votes for Roxas in the last election.

The opening of new parking spaces courtesy of local schools within their school campuses and led by Silliman University, is one indicator of the community’s support to the master plan which has finally put this city back in the tourism map and in infrastructure business.
