The Commission on Elections in Negros Oriental is expected to serve today subpoenas and notices for hearing of the disqualification cases filed against two congressional candidates in the province.

Jocelyn Limkaichong of the 1st district, and independent candidate Raul Aniñon, who is contesting the 2nd congressional district seat in the May 2010 polls.

This was after Comelec Region 7 Director Rey Rene Boac informed Aba 's office yesterday afternoon about this development.

Employers told,
pay 13 th month now

Central Visayas Labor and Employment Regional Director, Elias Cayanong , is urging employers in Region 7 to release the 13th month pay of their employees on or before December 24.

Cayanong said forms of compliance had already been sent to some employers whose workers are raising issues on their entitlement to the 13th month pay.

Cayanong said that, based on their experience in the past, some workers are complaining that their 13th month pay was either delayed or deficient in amount because the computation was not correct.
