Exodus of Lakas stalwarts
to LP looming in NegOr

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

An exodus of Lakas stalwarts in Negros Oriental is expected in few days with feelers coming from mayors of the first, second and third districts in the province.

This was confirmed yesterday by Mayor Edsel Enardecido of Ayungon town who categorically spoke on changing party lines for the sake of unity, and to support Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong (Neg. Or., 1st District) and the administration of President Benigno Aquino III.

Enardecido said he also made the decision because his former ally, former Rep. Jacinto Paras of the 1st District (Lakas) is no longer interested in running.

NEDA lauds Bohol province
for supporting dev’t projects
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

The National Economic and Development Authority lauded the provincial government of Bohol for investing much in order to get the projects they wanted for the province.

Director Marlene CA.P. Rodriguez of NEDA Region 7 said that when it comes to projects, Bohol is known for its ability to push for their realization, not by just submitting proposals, but even  hiring consultants to do feasibility studies whether the proposed project is viable or not, and complete with detailed engineering.

Rodriguez was reacting to observations of perceived disparity in the approval of project proposals submitted to the Regional Development Council of Region 7.

IN RDC-7
Chairmanship chances  
dim after Tuting’s death

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Negros Oriental government has apparently lost its chance for the chairmanship of the Regional Development Council in Region 7 or Central Visayas following the death of Gov. Agustin Perdices.

This was disclosed by regional director Marlene CA.P. Rodriguez of the National Economic and Development Authority in Dumaguete City Monday. Rodriguez was in the city for a provincial multi-sectoral consultation with various government agencies and the private sector, on the draft Central Visayas Medium-Term Regional Development Plan for 2011-2016.

Rodriguez said the rule on succession in the now vacant RDC-7 chair seat cannot apply in this case, as President Benigno Aquino III, is expected to appoint from the existing nominees for the same position.
