Epal sa Panagbenga! Mayor Domogan calls Marcoses presence in flower festival ‘unfortunate’

Mar 6, 2018 @ 15:28

Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan, in a Sunstar report, called former senator Bongbong Marcos and Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos’ participation in the Panagbenga Festival events as “unfortunate.”

The two Ilocos Norte politikos joined Baguio City officials and festival organizers in the Panagbenga parade.

The Ilocos Norte governor also introduced his brother during a speech at the Athletic Bowl as the vice president of the country.

The Marcoses’ alleged ‘politicking’ was earlier slammed by critics.

The Panagbenga Festival has traditionally banned politicians from using the event for campaigning or other political activities.

Domogan vowed that the incident will not happen in the next installments of the Panagbenga Festival.

The Marcoses, according to Sunstar sources were not formally invited to the annual flower festival.

“It is unfortunate that it happened. We will take this seriously in the post assessment to ensure that it will not happen again,” Domogan said.
