GMA wooing support for constituent assembly in Davao visit?

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/30 Nov) – Some local government officials from
Mindanao are supporting administration lawmakers’ move for a
constituent assembly and backed President Arroyo’s support to it in a
manifesto they handed to her Wednesday.

At least 11 governors and 13 city mayors signed the seven-paragraph
statement, which specified their “support to the efforts of the
Congress to convene a constituent assembly”. Mindanao has 25 provinces
and 27 cities.

But majority, if not all, of those who signed are allied with the
administration.

The officials handed the manifesto to the President in a room in the
17th floor of Marco Polo Hotel, the same venue of the 10th anniversary
celebration of the Bishops-Ulama Conference, where she had an
eight-minute audience with the group. Read full story here.
