DOE TELLS SOLONS
Don’t use light bulbs for
poll maneuvering
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

Department of Energy officials said the three solons from Negros Oriental have each been allocated 10,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs under the Philippine Energy Efficiency Project.

DOE Undersecretary Loreta Ayson and directors Evelyn Reyes and Raquel Huliganga, at a press conference in Dumaguete City Tuesday, said the CFL distribution is in line with the energy security strategy.

Huliganga said Representatives George Arnaiz (2nd District) and Jocelyn Limkaichong (1st District) already received their allocation, while Rep. Pryde Henry Teves (Neg. Or., 3rd District) has yet to complete the requirements for the release of the bulbs.

DEB cautions voters on
‘signature campaigns’

BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Dumaguete Diocesan Electoral Board convenor, Msgr. Julius Heruela, has warned the electorate against recklessly signing documents that could force them to vote for a particular candidate, or support a political party, in the May 13 elections.

He added that while it is not an electoral offense for the candidates to get the support of voters through signature campaigns, these should not be used “to intimidate” people, especially those from the hinterlands and remote areas of the province.

The priest said he got hold of a copy of a document that contained the names and signatures of perceived voters/supporters of a candidate in a barangay in Sibulan town, Negros Oriental.

‘Run for CHAMP’ polls starts
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The first-ever run to promote clean, honest, accurate, meaningful and peaceful, or CHAMP, elections in May starts today until Saturday covering all towns and cities of Negros Oriental.

The Run for CHAMP, promoted by the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting and adopted by the Diocesan Electoral Board of the Diocese of Dumaguete, kicks off in Canlaon City today, and in Basay town tomorrow.

It is expected to be attended by 70 personnel from the Philippine National Police, the Philippine Army, organized groups of runners, and teachers, with more enthusiasts set to join along the way.
