ZAMBOANGA CITY –The Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) assured Mayor Celso Lobregat the conduct of a meaningful and credible consultation concerning the peace process in the city in January, as she expressed regrets over the failure of a similar activity conducted by the government panel here from December 15 and 16.

In an electronic mail sent to Mayor Lobregat on December 29, 2009, OPAPP Secretary Annabelle Abaya said she will be pleased to provide OPAPP’s resources in conducting the consultation that the Zamboanga chief executive intends to sponsor next month.

Sec. Abaya’s e-mail was in response to Lobregat’s letter strongly protesting the GRP “consultation in the city from Dec. 15-16 intended for city and municipal mayors in Region 9 due to very short notice, lack of coordination with panel members and other observations.
