CITING disrespect to his designation as their party’s chairman in Bacolod City, former councilor Ricardo “Cano Gwapo” Tan has decided to disaffiliate himself from the Aksyon Demokratiko party of presidential candidate Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso.Tan said he wishes him good luck.Tan, who is running for councilor, said he felt disrespected when he was not informed of the several activities of Moreno in Bacolod City.The presidential aspirant was in Bacolod City Thursday, April 28, for various engagements.Domagoso met with Mayor Evelio Leonardia and other city officials at the Bacolod City Government Center.He also held a meet and greet with some supporters at the St. Jude Thaddeus Parish and Shrine in Barangay Alijis.Domagoso also spoke to a crowd at the plaza of Binalbagan town.As the political campaign progressed, Tan said Moreno’s activities were not coordinated with him and being the party chairman in the city, and such acts were damaging to his leadership.He said as the party leader here, it is incumbent that he holds privity to any activity of Domagoso, whom he regarded as a man of integrity and possessed the capability to lead the country.”I am a leader who values loyalty and respect (but) since I am being bypassed and disrespected in the position given to me, I would rather disaffiliate myself (from him),” Tan said.Although this is a bitter pill to take, Tan accepted that reality bites where “some have shown disrespect to him,” adding that party affiliation is about trust and confidence, respect and loyalty.”This is what binds us but if one of these conditions is being circumvented, this will affect our unity and working relations. We have a big goal to achieve and when disrespect sips in, this will only sink the boat,” he said.The returning-councilor said that he hopes Damagoso will understand his decision as it is not whimsical.”I am a good soldier of the party but respect matters to me. In simple terms, respect begets respect,” Tan said.
