Maynilad withdraws,
Baciwa union jubilant

The members of the Baciwa Union Employees yesterday celebrated the withdrawal of Maynilad from its partnership agreement with the Bacolod City Water District to undertake the water district’s non-revenue management and expansion project, by holding a “ boodle fight” in front of the Baciwa Office in Bacolod City.

Maynilad president Victorico Vargas, in his letter dated July 5 to Miya Manila Water Projects Inc. director Mai Flor, said “After careful review of outstanding issues, they have decided to withdraw from their partnership agreement to undertake a non-revenue management and expansion project for Baciwa.”

“The developments in recent weeks have made the partnership unfeasible and contrary to the best interest of the stakeholders,” Vargas said, in the letter that was furnished Baciwa. moremoremore

Gov’t ready to
protect VM Alvarez

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda yesterday said the government is willing to provide protection to Ilog Vice-Mayor John Paul Alvarez, whose arrest was ordered by the New People’s Army.

Asked if he thinks the NPA threat against a duly-elected official is an insult to the mandate of the government to maintain order and peace, Lacierda said: “We own the brand, law and order is our brand. It is not any other people’s brand, any other rebels’ or group’s brand,” in press conference at Malacañang.

Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, said yesterday that they have not received any request for security from Vice Mayor Alvarez. moremoremore

Negros officials bare
SONA expectations

Negros Occidental and Bacolod officials yesterday said they expect President Benigno Aquino III to elaborate on the gains of his campaign against corruption and efforts to further boost the country’s economy in his State of the Nation Address at the opening of the 16th Congress on Monday.

Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) said he hopes the President updates the public on his efforts on corruption cleansing, especially in the light of the recent scam involving government funds.

Rep. Julio Ledesma IV (Neg. Occ., 1st District) said he hopes the endgame of Aquino’s presidency “will be distinguished by the pass through of all economic gains through the populace, and a policy environment where the best practices are institutionalized.”moremoremore
