RCRi party remains strong – Rivera

Former General Santos City Mayor Ronnel Rivera said the RCRi Party remains strong despite the recent defection of key members to rival People’s Champ Movement (PCM).

“We are going strong. We are still very strong. We still have, of course and atong mga adbokasiya still remain, mao man nang importante,” Rivera said.

Late last year, City Councilor Lulu Casabuena, who will end her term in 2025, shocked the Rivera camp when she joined the PCM, paving pro-administration councilors to dominate the Sangguniang Panlungsod.

“I think that’s part of the political exercise, considering sa among side pud, sa among panahon, daghan man pud mibalhin sa akong side, sa akong administrasyon. That’s usually the trend, not only in the local politics scenario, I think sa national ana gihapon,” Rivera explained.

Earlier, the former mayor confirmed talks and preparations to ensure a formidable presence in next year’s local polls and a possible face-off with incumbent Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao.
