Dumaguete City (CNN Philippines) — Interior Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas II urged the people of Negros Oriental to stay true to the cause of Daang Matuwid, the Aquino administration's good governance policy.

Roxas was in Dumaguete City on Friday (September 4), a day before the launch of the Partido NegORense. The next day he he sent Rep. Mel Sarmiento, the Liberal Party's Secretary General, to read his message during the launching.

In his message, Roxas urged Partido NegOrEnse members, headed by Gov. Roel Ragay Degamo, "to stay true to the noble cause of serving the people, to stay true to the local party’s goals of defending the dreams and aspirations of every NegOrEnse and every Filipino."

He said the greater challenge of Daang Matuwid was yet to come and the benefit of the transformation would be experienced by the next generation.

He said elections would happen in less than a year and people would be asked to make decisions that would determine the success of Daang Matuwid.

Earlier, Degamo said he wasn't a Liberal Party member but he and his party would support Roxas in his bid for the presidency.
