Outgoing Manila City Mayor Joseph Estrada has requested to postpone the meeting with Mayor-elect Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Friday because he was not feeling well, according to Estrada’s chief of staff Alex Morales.
“As far as we [are] concerned we are really trying to reach out sa ating counterpart. In fact the transition committee met a week ago. I, for one, [the] duly elected Mayor on the last election, nakisuyo naman tayo kay Mayor Estrada kung pwede ko siya mabisita sa City Hall today,” Moreno told the Manila Bulletin.
Mayor-elect Domagoso said he would make time to meet Estrada whenever he is ready.
“It was coordinated properly by the chief of staff Alex Morales through our incoming chief of staff Cesar Chavez ahead of time. Ako naman kung kailan sila maluwag, kung kailan sila pwede ay pupunta naman ako,” he added.
Domagoso was scheduled to visit Estrada’s office this afternoon for a courtesy call at 4:30 p.m.
However, outgoing Mayor Joseph Estrada’s chief of staff, Alex Morales, requested the Moreno’s camp to reschedule the courtesy call on Monday at around 2:00 p.m.
