BAGUIO CITY – Not, a political butterfly, Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan is, saying he need not change party but would just support the administration of  incoming president Rodrigo Duterte.
Domogan is one of the few remaining original members of the LAKAS-CMD which has an existing alliance with the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) of losing presidential candidate and Vice President Jejomar C. Binay.
“I will not go to the extent of taking my oath as a member of the new ruling party because it is not my practice to change parties everytime that there is a change in administration. I personally know President-elect Duterte and I know that he will understand my not joining his party but he knows that I am supportive of his programs that are beneficial to the greater interest of the Filipinos,” Domogan stressed.
The city mayor admitted that he received a call from Duterte inviting him to go to Davao City but he told him he was attending to concerns of the city government that needed his personal attention.
He however told Duterte he would support his programs and projects, thus, there is no need for him to go to Davao City for such commitment.
According to him, the LAKAS leadership under its party president and Leyte 1st district Rep. Ferdinand Martin Romualdez already entered into a collation with Duterte’s PDP-Laban and even UNA head and Vice President Jejomar Binay signified his support to the incoming administration that is why he sees no problem regarding the support of local officials to the Duterte leadership.
Domogan said he knows Duterte is a professional in dealing with concerns of the country unlike the present administration where the President had been vindictive to those who were not aligned with the administration party.
            Hundreds of national and local leaders from various political parties had been flocking to Davao city lately to take their oath as members of the PDP-Laban so that they can continue getting concessions with the incoming administration.
Domogan, a six-term city mayor and three-term congressman, who has been unbeaten in ten straight elections tracing back from the elections right after the ratification of the 1987 Philippine Constitution, claimed it was the performance of officials in discharging their duties and responsibilities that the voters are looking from their leaders and that their political alignments and affiliations are just minor considerations in judging who among them are dedicated public servants willing to serve the interest of the people.
