SAN JOSE De BUENAVISTA, Antique: Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao said she is confident Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones is 101 percent supportive of Antique’s bid to host the Palarong Pambansa next year.
Cadiao, in an interview Wednesday, said the DepEd secretary hails from Antique province and so she herself would like the province to play host to this national sporting event.
The governor said that she considers hosting the Palaro as an opportunity to showcase Antique and at the same time for the local people to gain from its economic benefits.
The evaluators for the Palarong Pambansa inspected the sports facilities and billeting schools in the province from October 12 and 13. The evaluation had so far already yielded positive comments.
Meanwhile, Cadiao said she is asking her political adversaries to set aside politics for a time and support the hosting of Palarong Pambansa. She is also asking resolutions of support from the municipal councils.
