PACE filing raps
vs. SP, Alvarez
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Progressive Alliance of Capitol Employees is filing charges against the members of the Negros Occidental Sangguniang Panlalawigan, headed by Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr., for dereliction of duty and mandamus before the Ombudsman, its president, Ruben Diamante, said yesterday.
Mandamus, also called a "writ of mandate", orders a public agency or governmental body to perform an act required by law when it has neglected or refused to do so.
The PACE Board unanimously yesterday approved its Resolution 07-13 Series of 2013, authorizing the filing of the charges to protect the interest of their members with the non passage by the SP of the 2013 annual budget of the provincial government, it said.
