Early registration
for SK polls urged

Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez of Negros Occidental yesterday called on the youth to register early for the Sangguniang Kabataan elections on Feb. 21, 2015 to avoid the rush, as only nine days are set for the activity.

Filipino citizens who are 15 to 17 years old on or before Feb. 21, 2015 can register to vote in the SK polls from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Sept. 20 to 29, Suarez said.

The Commission on Elections has ordered all its election officers to purge their SK lists of those already 18 years old, or will be turning 18 on or before February 21, he added

‘No basis to continue
traffic experiment’

Bacolod Vice Mayor Greg Gasataya said yesterday that the 45-day traffic experiment in Bacolod City ended on September 5, so there is, legally, no basis for its continued implementation.

He said the ordinance provides that when the traffic experiment ends, the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office should recommend an extension or to return to the original route if it was not successful, so the enforcement unit will be guided properly.

Gasataya said he was informed that the BTAO and the Traffic Management Unit are planning to ask for an extension but, as of yesterday, the Sangguniang Panlungsod had not yet received any request for an extension of the traffic experiment. moremoremore
