IN SAGAY CITY - SUAREZ
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Commission on Elections en banc has denied the certificate of candidacy filed by Jubert Pedrano Katalbas as substitute candidate for mayor of Sagay City in Negros Occidental.
The COMELEC en banc issued its decision in Minute Resolution No. 13-0011 dated January 3, Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez said yesterday.
Jubert Pedrano Katalbas was nominated by the Nationalist People’s Coalition in substitution for Rufino Katalbas, who had filed an affidavit repudiating his NPC certificate of nomination and acceptance as Sagay mayoral bet, and declared himself an independent candidate on Oct. 23, 2012.
