Escudero quits NPC,
surprises partymates


Nationalist People's Coalition leaders in Negros said they were surprised at the announcement of Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero yesterday of his resignation from the NPC, while asking for more time to decide on his plans for the 2010 polls, but added that they would remain loyal to their party.

Senator Loren Legarda, in a hastily called press conference, said she would remain the vice presidential candidate of the NPC.

“I don't consider Escudero's leaving a great loss to the NPC, there are many others in the party who feel the same and do not believe in him,” Rep. Genaro Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6th District), said. moremoremore

Dullan identified the victim as Prience Alro Bueno, 20, of Purok Mainabyanon, Brgy. Singcang-Airport, who died on the spot from multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigation disclosed that, earlier on Tuesday, Bueno and his friends Grace Salilig and Paul Aragon, all of Purok Mainabyanon, were having a drinking spree at the Pinang store in the Purok. moremoremore

RFID is a technology that involves the use of a tag with microchip that stores unique numbers assigned to a vehicle for the identification of its information and a reader, which will be used to retrieve and pass on digital information from the LTO database through radio waves. moremoremore
