LOS BAÑOS, Laguna -- A youth group denounced on Saturday the presence here of posters of Bayani Fernando, chairman of the Metro Manila Development Authority, saying they were "out of place."
"This is just a form of early electioneering -- a tactic of traditional politicians to deceive their voters," said John Paulo Bautista, deputy secretary general of Anakbayan-Southern Tagalog.
He added that these posters were out of place since the town is not under the area of the MMDA and the motive behind this act is questionable.
Leaflets about Fernando have also been distributed in the town.
Bautista challenged Fernando to fulfill his duties first before promoting his personal interests and political ambitions.
Since last week, posters of Fernando have been seen along Lopez Avenue, Barangay (village) Batong Malake.
