Mayor's Stand on IRA cut

SOLID STAND. GenSan City Mayor Pedro Acharon, Jr. wears a black arm band on his left arm during an interview by ABS-CBN in solidarity with the stand of the League of Cities of the Philippines where he is the Vice-President for Mindanao, against the congress' plan to convert 16 municipalities into cities without having to comply with the laws on cityhood. GenSan will stand to lose about P57 million this year from its IRA (Internal Revenue Allotment) increase of P82 million with the plan. (GenSan CMO/avel manansala)
