Cebu City – Representative Raul del Mar (1st district) died last week while undergoing treatment in a hospital.


Del Mar, who had never lost in an election, had served for nine terms as congressman since 1987 during the time of Speaker Ramon Mitra Jr.
He was a political ally of the powerful Osmena clan and ran under the Bando Osmena Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK), an affiliate of the Liberal Party (LP).


Cebu City Mayor Edgar Labella declared a week-long period of mourning from Nov. 17-22 to honor the deceased legislator whom he said contributed a lot to the development of the province.
