Redistricting

Today, I will deliver a privilege speech at the City Council concerning the on-going population census.

I will call on the “reappointment” or redistricting of the whole country’s legislative districts following this census as provided for by the Constitution. The figures would speak for themselves in the creation of new districts and not political partisanship or gerrymandering.

Also, I would seek correction to the practice of national government statistics in lumping Davao City under the province of Davao del Sur, where both are actually distinct LGUs. The city is not part of the province and yet government figures almost always include data of the city as part of the province.

Here is the draft of my speech.
