TACLOBAN CITY-Leyte board member Ranulfo ‘Bob’ Abellanosa is seeking the chairmanship of the Provincial Board Members League of the Philippines (PBMLP) – Eastern Visayas chapter.
And Abellanosa, who is representing Leyte’s first district, appears to have clinched the post as he is running unopposed.
The region’s 73 provincial board members are to hold their election next month in Cebu City.
The current regional president of the PBMLP is Leyte board member Trinidad ‘Ebbie’ Apostol of the second district.
