Director Agapito Guanlao (Standing, 7th from Left), one of the Board of Directors of PCIC, representing the Luzon Farmer’s Sector, bid farewell to PCIC last April 30, 2009 to join the House of Representatives after he was proclaimed by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) as one of the Representatives of the BUTIL Partylist. The proclamation came as a result of the decision of the Supreme Court in the case entitled “Barangay Association for National Advancement and Transparency (BANAT) vs. Commission on Elections (COMELEC), et al.”, wherein a total of 51 Partylist Representatives coming from 32 Partylist groups were proclaimed, including Director Guanlao of the BUTIL Partylist.
