Local Chiefs Manifest Support as “One Palawan”

Published: Friday, 24 November 2017

Camp General Artemio Ricarte, Puerto Princesa City – Western Command conducts Local Chief Executive (LCE) Forum at Headquarters WESCOM today, November 24, 2017 with Palawan Acting Governor HON. Victorino Dennis Socrates as Guest of Honor. Mayors and representatives of Local government units, WESCOM OPCOM/OPCON Unit Officers and Staff, Department of Internal Labor Government, Law Enforcement Agencies, and Reservists attended the forum.

The LCE Forum Update aims to apprise local chief executives of Palawan on the current security situation in the province. It will be an opportunity to unite “One Palawan” by expressing support to peace and development efforts by condemning violence and atrocities through the signing of manifesto of support.


Securing Palawan is a shared responsibility especially with local chief executives who are directly serving their constituents.

Below are some of the salient points stated in the manifesto:
• Local Government Units in Palawan condemn the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) – New People’s Army (NPA) – National Democratic Front (NDF) (CPP-NPA-NDF) in their deceptive recruitment activities to the Indigenous People (IP) and minors, and perpetrated various atrocities that hampers the safety, security and sustainable development of Palawan;
• The peace-loving people of Palawan encourage the members of the New People’s Army (NPA) to return to the folds of the law and become productive members of the society; and
• The reported recruitments by MNLF is not only inimical to the peace and security of the province but also a clear violation of the Final Peace Agreement (FPA) between the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and MNLF.

It is expected that after signing the manifesto, the Province of Palawan and its subordinate local government units will take the lead in the promotion and maintenance of security, peace and sustainable development through collective multi-stakeholders approach.####
