3,228 NegOr teachers to
get poll honorarium


More than 3,220 teachers, who served as Board of Election Inspectors in the 1,076 voting precincts of Negros Oriental, will soon receive cash cards as honorarium for services rendered during the elections.

Acting provincial elections supervisor Juvenal Tuale said the 3,228 BEIs will receive P4,000 each, but they have to fill up the forms required to claim the cash cards from government banks.

He also reminded the candidates, both winners and losers, to file their statement of contributions and expenditures, with all its required attachments, to the Commission on Elections by June 13, pursuant to Paragraph 6, Section 14 of Republic Act 7166, or the Omnibus Election Code.

PHL boosts military
to resist ‘bullies’

MANILA – President Benigno Aquino yesterday announced a $1.8-billion military upgrade to help defend his country's maritime territory against "bullies", amid an ever-worsening dispute with China.

The announcement came on the same day that the Philippines filed a protest with China over the "illegal and provocative" presence of a Chinese warship and two other vessels at a Filipino-claimed shoal in the disputed South China Sea.

In thinly veiled comments referring to China, Aquino vowed during a speech to mark the navy's 115th anniversary that the armed forces would be given the resources necessary to protect Philippine sovereignty.
