THE top members of the Asenso Manileno, the dominant local party in Manila led by Mayor Honey Lacuna, met with Vice President Sara Duterte and former President and now Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo recently.

The informal gathering via dinner took place in a private venue and was attended by the highest-ranking officials in Manila with Arroyo herself hosting the affair.

Apart from Lacuna, also present were Vice Mayor Yul Servo-Nieto, Congressman Ernix Dionisio (first district), Congressman Rolan “CRV” Valeriano (2nd district), third Dist. Congressman Joel Chua, Cong. Irwin Teng (5th) and sixth District Congressman Benny Abante.

Lacuna said that the gathering was apolitical and that it was a mere ‘social meeting’.

It was learned that the said gathering was arranged by a common friend from both camps.

Before that, Lacuna and her team also met with President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. at the Malacañang Palace for a courtesy visit.

In the said meeting, the President told Lacuna that he considers himself a constituent of Manila since his office is located in the capital city.

The Palace visit was Manila’s response to calls for unity on the part of the BBM-Sara administration.
