Demaala said in an interview that the election was successfully conducted with fair and honest voting.
It is his second term as president of the league.
“Talagang we vote based on our conscience at mula sa puso lahat. Siguro walang dapat patunayan pa kasi laban namin itong lahat, actually ang mga kasamahan natin na mga konsehal ay sila ang tumulak para lumaban tayong muli at sabi nila kahit anong mangyari ay boboto sila,” Demaala said.
He said that he will continue the projects of the PCL in Palawan, including the proposed hostel for the councilors and other pieces of training.
“Yong mga trainings, seminars and hostel natin [na isa sa mga ginagawa natin] ay hindi nila kayang ipagpalit. [Tuloy-tuloy pa rin ‘yon] kaya nanindigan talaga ang ating mga kasamahan,” he said.
