Navarra could face
election offense suit

The head of the Legal Department of the Commission on Elections late yesterday asked Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra to have the oversized “Team Patay/Team Buhay” tarpaulin in front of the San Sebastian Cathedral removed, otherwise, the COMELEC will be constrained to file an election offense case against him.

“We pray that the Catholic Church will be the first institution to help the Commission on Elections in ensuring the conduct of peaceful, orderly, honest and credible elections,” COMELEC Legal Department Director IV, Esmeralda Amora-Ladra, wrote.

The bishop, through his lawyer, Mitchelle Abella, had asked on Monday for a definitive ruling by the COMELEC Legal Department on the tarpaulin that lists the names of senatorial candidates and partylist groups to support and not to support for their stance on the Reproductive Health Law.moremoremore

Grievances vs.
diocese aired at CBCP


Leaders of partylist groups included in the “Team Patay” list of the Diocese of Bacolod yesterday called the branding unfair, saying they have consistently fought for life, and worked alongside the Church on many causes in defense of the Filipino people.

The list indentifies senatorial candidates and partylist groups whom the faithful should support or reject in the polls, for their stance on the reproductive health law.

‘Those questioning donations
don’t want to assist teachers’


Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said those questioning the donations being given by the city means they do not want the teachers to be given their allowances.

This was his reaction to the allegations of their political opponents who claimed that the city had spent a very big amount on donations.

Leonardia said the word “donation” is a term required by the Commission on Audit for certain disbursements of government. That is generic, he said.moremoremore
