Bar exams, proclamation rally in Naga peaceful says IMT
By Jason B. Neola
The Incident Management Team (IMT) of the Naga City government described the two big events recently conducted in the city as peaceful and orderly.
Renne Gumba, IMT commander, who is also the executive director of the Public Safety Office (PSO), was referring to the recently concluded bar examinations conducted last Feb. 4 and 6 at the University of Nueva Caceres and the grand rally of the Leni-Kiko tandem and their senatorial slate on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at Plaza Quezon.
The two-day bar examinations were participated in by 476 examinees from Bicol provinces, Southern Luzon, and Mindanao. Gumba said the Supreme Court personnel who worked with the city government and the school regarding the conduct of the bar exams were very thankful about the outcome of the activity.

On the proclamation rally, Gumba said the peace and order situation in the city was very manageable with the enforcement of the contingency plan by the personnel of the Naga City Police Office, PSO, and a good number of peacekeeping volunteers who served as the law enforcers’ force multipliers.
The IMT and the media relations officer of Vice President Leni Robredo placed at 18,000 the number of individuals who attended the proclamation rally. Robredo spearheaded the rally along with her running mate Senator Francisco “Kiko” Pangilinan who were joined by a handful of senatorial aspirants called TROPA, a contraction of Team Robredo-Pangilinan.
Asked if the city government will allow the use of Plaza Quezon by other political groups for similar events or any activity during the campaign period, Gumba answered yes “on condition that they present first a mayor’s permit and a permit from Comelec.”
