Comelec reshuffles
18 Neg. Occ. poll officers

The Commission on Elections, in an en banc resolution, has temporarily reshuffled 18 election officers of Negros Occidental, while 14 others have been retained at their old posts, Provincial Election Supervisor Wil Arceño said last night.

The COMELEC en banc Resolution 9656, reshuffling election officers nationwide, will take effect March 20, Arceño said.

The temporary reshuffling will be effective until the end of the election period on June 12 without prejudice to the authority of the Commission en banc to effect further reassignments if the exigency of service requires it, the resolution states.moremoremore

State university launched

KABANKALAN CITY – While other state universities and colleges are complaining about cuts in government subsidies, the Central Philippines State University (CPSU), formerly the Negros State College of Agriculture (NSCA), is expected to get more support aside from an increase of its budget, Rep. Mercedes Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6th District) yesterday said.

The school budget is about P60 million annually.

Alvarez, principal author of Republic Act 10228, that converted NSCA to a state university, said the increase in budget, including that of its satellite campuses, depends on the needs of CPSU which will be presented by its president, Dr. Freddie Maningo, to the Regional Development Council and at budget hearings in Congress.moremoremore
