TRANSFERRING THE CAPITAL AND SEAT OF GOVERNMENT OF THE PROVINCE OF CAVITE FROM TRECE MARTIRES CITY TO THE MUNICIPALITY OF IMUS
WHEREAS, it has been the popular clamor among the inhabitants of Cavite to transfer the capital and seat of government of their province to a more accessible place to accelerate its development;

All other laws, decrees, rules or regulations inconsistent with this Decree are hereby modified, amended or repealed accordingly.
