Rebels no threat
to bets: Comelec


Provincial Supervisor Juvenal Tuale of the Commission on Election said politicians are safe to campaign even in the remotest barangay of Negros Oriental, amid concerns that rebels may stage attacks on the candidates and their supporters.

Tuale said he has not received any complaint from candidates about harassments by rebels on the campaign trail. He also said soldiers should not serve as close-in bodyguards of candidates.

He said he is unaware that some politicians chose to pay permit to campaign fees in areas considered to be under the influence of the rebel movement.

Only DSWD can delist
beneficiaries from 4Ps


President Benigno Aquino III, during his recent visit in Negros Oriental deplored the practice of some candidates of threatening to delist Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino (4Ps) beneficiaries if they fail to help them win in the May 13 polls.

Persistent reports that some politicians, particularly mayors have threatened some beneficiaries of 4Ps with being delisted have apparently reached the ears of the President.

Aquino urged the public to report any politician who uses 4Ps for partisan ends as this is an indication that the concerned official deserves more than ever to exit public service.

Diputado explains
reason for running


Former Vice Mayor Emmanuel Diputado claimed that the lack of vision of Sibulan town prompted him to run for mayor against incumbent Mayor Marcela Grampon-Bartoces and Vice-Mayor Antonio  Renacia.

Deputado said the potentials of Sibulan have remained untapped for the town to register a significant economic growth and better living standards for its  citizens.

Councilor Indira  Requiron said Sibulan’s future remains in limbo due to the absence of any long-term plan that will harness its potentials for fresh investments and expansion of businesses, pursuant to the Metro Dumaguete concept.
