Its final! Cagayan de Oro now has two congressional districts.
City Mayor Vicente Y. Emano made this disclosure after the Senate Committee on Local Government approved yesterday the creation of a second congressional district for Cagayan de Oro.
A public hearing was held yesterday in the Senate Committee on Local Government chaired by Senator Alfredo Lim. It was attended by some local officials led by Vice Mayor Michelle Tagarda-Spiers.
The creation of the second congressional district was authored by Congressman Constantino G. Jaraula of the lone district of Cagayan de Oro through House Bill No. HB05658 which pushed for the creation of a second congressional district in the city by splitting the present lone district.
Mayor Emano said that the creation of a second congressional district in the city will mean more voices to carry the sentiments of the Cagayanons before the Congress.
I am glad that it was finally approved because it will mean better and improved services for the growing population of the city, Mayor Emano pointed out.
The city chief executive said that the creation of a second congressional district is very timely as the city experiences an enormous socio-economic progress, securing its position as bustling metropolis in this part of Mindanao.
The committee of Sen. Lim is now bringing the approved bill in the plenary hall of the senate for approval before February 10, after which it will be brought to Malacanang for the President?s signature.
The creation of the city’s second district will pave the way for the election of two House representatives for the city in Congress and 16 city councilors at the local legislative branch.
Mayor Emano likewise thanked all the officials and the people of Cagayan de Oro who supported the creation of the city?s second district.
