Filipinos, are you in favor to shift back the capital of the Philippines to Cebu & Bohol province?

Because Cebu and Bohol are located at the center of the Philippines and both provinces are not prone to typhoon.


Bohol International Airport will be start to construct this coming December 2009.

Also the Bohol-Cebu causeway (bridge) will be start to construct this coming 1st quarter of 2010.

Update 2:

How about if we're going separate, do vote for Yes?

    Luzon where the capital Manila is located has the biggest concentration of Filipinos including illegal settlers from the provinces and the islands.

    Imagine all those illegal settlers will go to the new capital?

    I never recalled that Cebu or Bohol was ever a capital of the Philippines. Besides, no other island province is big enough to accommodate the requirements for one.

    The capital must house the residence of the country's leader. If that is so, it must be defendable. An island is not. That is why we have so many military bases in and around MM.

    This is laughable.

    What do you mean shift "back" to Cebu and Bohol? When was it ever there? The main trades (dating back, literally, hunderds of years) have always been centered in Manila. And since when have the Visayas not been prone to typhoon? Are you doing some sort of elementary Social Studies survey or something?

    IMO Bohol is a naturally beautiful place that should not undergo such a change in landscape that would be needed to house the financial districts, expansion of roads and airport and overall increase in population etc.

    shift BACK???????? was cebu our capital before?? i did not know that.

    well anyway, i vote NO.

    the reason? No reason at all. Because three's also no reason why Cebu should become the capital.

    ...and the other answerer was right. Bohol is a nice place for vacation. leave it as it is.
