Tthe PRA wrote the city through the mayor on Sept. 18 asking them to study and forward the matter to the Sangguniang Panlungsod and also requested the mayor to seek the SP authority so they could convey the properties to the city, located in the middle of the Reclamation Area.

The Commission on Elections in Negros Oriental yesterday reported a high turnout in the number registrants aged 14 to 17, for the Sangguniang Kabataaan elections in February next year.
Records from the provincial Comelec Office showed that during the SK registration held September 20-29 this year, 14,639 new young voters applied for voters’ registration.
Provincial elections supervisor Eddie Aba said this is a relatively satisfying outcome considering that the total number of new SK voters is higher than that of the existing ones who will be deleted from the list after having turned or will turn 18 years old on or before the February 21, 2015 SK polls.
