On June 9, Thursday, Cagayan de Oro’s 1st District Rep. Rolando Uy signed his membership and oath of allegiance to president-elect Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte’s party, the PDP-Laban, in Cebu City.
This was confirmed by PDP-Laban deputy secretary general Ben Ranque, with Davao del Norte Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez who swore Uy into the PDP-Laban at Crimson Hotel.
Uy wanted to support the incoming Duterte administration, as said by Ranque. “Balik PDP-Laban (na siya).”
During the campaign period, Uy was a member of the Liberal Party, but he decided to support presidential candidate Grace Poe instead, for Manuel Roxas II was allegedly supporting his lone challenger Councilor Lourdes Darimbang.
