KUSUG party to be revived too
CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Kugi Uswag Sugbo (KUSUG) political party in Cebu City will be revived by its founder, former Cebu City Mayor Alvin Garcia and his son, current City Councilor Raymond Alvin Garcia.
The younger Garcia revealed this to members of the media on March 10, 2021, clarifying that the party has actually never been dissolved and is still registered under the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
In fact, Councilor Garcia said the party is already actively recruiting its “strongest” members such as Jerry Guardo, Joel Garganera, and David Tumulak.
These incumbent councilors have yet to comment on this invitation.
“They will be invited to join. We will revive and we will already start recruiting members,” said Garcia.
The party’s revival came shortly after former councilor, Jose “Joey” Daluz III, also revived his mother’s party, the Partido Panaghiusa.
The Panaghiusa party has invited Mayor Edgardo Labella to be its honorary chairman, proving their support to the incumbent mayor.
As for KUSUG, Garcia said the party will still be in alliance with Labella’s own Barug-PDP Laban. The local parties will be in a coalition.
“The party has their own platforms and set of ideas nga we want to espouse moving forward. It doesn’t mean nga lahi-lahi mig ideas nga Barug ug Pinaghiusa, usually pare-pareha raman gyod na,” said Garcia.
As of now, two newly revived parties have signified their support to incumbent Mayor Edgardo Labella even if though the mayor has not signified his desire to run for a second term.
