Candidates cautioned
vs. early campaigning

The Commission on Elections in Negros Oriental has cautioned potential candidates in the October 28 barangay polls against early campaigning.

Provincial Elections Supervisor Eddie Aba said he received reports that some people were already going around distributing campaign materials in some barangays in Dumaguete City ahead of the filing of the certificates of candidacy, that will start Oct. 11.

He said that those found guilty of premature campaigning can be sanctioned.

1,058 scholars affected by
PDAF controversy

Around 1,058 scholars in the second district of Negros Oriental are affected by the controversy surrounding the Priority Development Assistance Fund.

Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2 nd District) said the fate of the scholars depends on the decision of the Supreme Court that scheduled a hearing Oct. 8 on the PDAF, or the pork barrel, of congressmen and senators.

The district scholars are enrolled in the four campuses of the Negros Oriental State University in Mabinay, Pamplona, Bais and the main campus in Dumaguete City.
