[UPDATED] The provincial government on Sunday marked the first anniversary of the plebiscite that turned back a proposal to divide Palawan into three separate provinces.

In a statement, the Capitol thanked all those who participated in the plebiscite, extolling it as a historic event and an exercise in democracy.

“Ang naganap na plebisito ay patunay na buhay na buhay ang demokrasya sa lalawigan ng Palawan. Patunay rin ito na ang pamahalaang panlalawigan ay buong katapatang sumusunod ng proseso ng demokrasya at matibay ang respeto sa kagustuhan ng mas nakararami,” it stated.

“Asahan po ninyo ang patuloy na tapat na paglilingkod ng inyong pamahalaang panlalawigan. Ang masigasig na pagsasakatuparan ng mga serbisyo at proyektong magpapabuti sa kalagayan ng bawat Palaweño ay nagpapatuloy at magpapatuloy,” the province added.
