DAVAO CITY, Davao -- Aside from casting votes in the barangay elections, voters in Davao del Sur also voted for or against the proposed creation of the new province of Davao Occidental on Monday.
If Davao Occidental comes into being, the province of Davao del Sur, which previously had two legislative districts, will be reduced to one legislative district encompassing nine municipalities and one city.
The plebiscite is expected to yield a positive result, as all political clans in the province supported the proposal to create of Davao Occidental by virtue of Republic Act 10360 passed and approved into law last January 21, 2013. (Ben O. Tesiorna)
