PILI, CamSur – In another development that confirms and fortifies his popularity and leadership, Camarines Sur Governor LRay Villafuerte, together with other officers, took his oath before President Noynoy Aquino as the new executive vice president  (EVP) of the League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) during the mass oath-taking ceremony held at the Heroes Hall of the Malacañang Palace Tuesday, July 20.

Aside from the EVP post that makes him the third most influential member of the organization, Villafuerte was also selected to be LPP’s representative to the umbrella group of local government executives, the  Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines (ULAP).

The LPP is the official organization of provincial governors in the  Philippines as mandated by R.A. 7160, the Local Government Code of 1991, where Villafuerte first served as deputy secretary general in 2004 up to 2007 during his first term as provincial executive, and thereafter the LPP’s national chairman when he was re-elected for his second term.

Villafuerte holds the rare distinction of being the second local political leader in Camarines Sur to be elected successively for the maximum three terms.  The first is his father and predecessor,  Congressman Luis Villafuerte (3rd District, Camarines Sur)  who was LPP’s first president and who served as its national chairman. – GBClaveria
