No merger in 2016,
Ferrer VG bet: guv
‘NIR to deliver 1.5M votes for Mar'
BY CARLA GOMEZ
There will be no United Negros Alliance and Love Negros merger for the 2016 polls, but those who wish to join UNA are welcome to do so, Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.
The announcement of the governor, who heads UNA, ended months of speculation on whom his runningmate in 2016 will be.
The choice of Rep. Jeffrey Ferrer (Neg. Occ., 4 th District) as his runningmate was decided shortly after the 2013 polls, and that will not change no matter whom their opponents will field, Marañon said.
The camp of Police Officer 1 Robert Chloe Rito is now mulling the possibility of filing counter-charges against witnesses, who had linked him to the assassination of Negros Occidental Board Member Renato Malabor and his bodyguard, and even some members of the Philippine National Police.
“The moment that we prove that they are perjured witnesses, we may file charges against them,” Nilo Sorbito, counsel of Rito, yesterday said.

on brutal murder of couple
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The Commission on Human Rights in Negros Oriental will report during the Provincial Peace and Order Council meeting this afternoon at the Capitol in Dumaguete City, the result of the investigation on the brutal killing of a couple in Guihulngan City a few months back.
CHR Negros head Jess Cañete said his presentation will put to rest, once and for all, the issues surrounding the Calago couple double murder and arson case.
Endric Calago, 47, a barangay councilor, and his wife, Rosalie, 43, a barangay health worker, and residents of Sitio Bantayan in Barangay Tacpao, Guihulngan City in northern Negros Oriental, were reported killed at around 10:45 p.m. on May 24.
