Pangasinan supports Palawan's Underground River in the global search for N7W

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, July 26 (PNA) -- The provincial government, led by Governor Amado T. Espino Jr., expressed full support to the country’s campaign to make the Puerto Princesa Underground River as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Espino called on all provincial government officials and employees and the people of the entire province to participate in the text drive called "Atin ‘To, Ating Iboto Lahat Panalo" text drive in the global search to make the Palawan natural wonder in the list of world's New 7 Wonders of Nature.
 

Corollary to this, Provincial Administrator Rafael Baraan led the synchronized text voting in a brief launching program held after the regular flag-raising ceremony July 25 at the Capitol Plaza here, participated in by provincial department heads, guest officials from the Department of Education (DepEd) and province's different departments.

Baraan encouraged all Pangasinenses to support the nationwide voting campaign launched by no less than President Benigno S. Aquino III who stressed that the pride of Puerto Princesa is the pride of the entire nation.

This will be made possible by casting votes via sending texts or thru the internet.

The Puerto Princesa underground river was chosen earlier as one of the 28 global finalists and the top 7 will be finally known November 11 this year.

Ma. Luisa A Elduayan, Provincial Tourism Officer, said the campaign was launched thru Proclamation No. 182 issued by the President last month and implemented locally by virtue of Memorandum Circular 106 issued by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

To vote, anyone can just text PPUR7 or PPUR15 and send to 2861 (applies to all networks) or simply log on to www.new7wonders.com.

The synchronized launching of the campaign was simultaneously held in all provinces, municipalities and cities in the entire country as an expression of support to one of the country’s most popular natural treasures. (PNA)
