He may be from Negros Occidental, but Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano is not getting any sweet support from sugar industry leaders over the impeachment complaint filed against President Rodrigo Duterte.

In a joint statement, the sugar industry leaders “condemned” the action of Alejano while reiterating their support for Duterte.

A report on Visayan Daily Star said the statement was issued by industry presidents:

– Francis dela Rama, Confederation of Sugar Producers Associations
– Enrique Rojas, National Federation of Sugarcane Planters
– Manuel Lamata, United Sugar Producers Federation of the Philippines
– Danilo Abelito, Panay Federation of Sugarcane Farmers Inc.

“We in the sugar industry believe in the sincerity of President Duterte and in his programs for the alleviation of poverty, the war against drugs and corruption, and the economic upliftment of our country,” they said.

Alejano, who hails from Sipalay City in Negros Occidental, had filed the complaint against Duterte before Congress went on recess last March 18.
