46,353 voters face
purging – Comelec


The total number of registered voters in Negros Occidental to be purged from the Commission on Elections list is 46,353, with 4,704 from Bacolod City, for having no biometrics, but the number may decrease, Provincial Elections Supervisor Jessie Suarez said yesterday.

The data is based on an October 31 provincial Comelec report of registered voters in the province at the end of September, with the additional data for October yet to be added to the list, he said.

The October 31 report showed that the province had 1,636,339 registered voters at the end of September but with 46,353 to be purged, that would bring the number down to 1,589,986, he said.moremoremore

2 Villamors junked

The Office of the Ombudsman in the Visayas dismissed the criminal case filed by former Secretary to the Mayor Moises de la Cruz against Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella, former City Administrator Rolando Villamor and former City Legal Officer Sarah Villamor.

De La Cruz filed the case for possible violation of Section 3 (a) & (e) of R.A. 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act against the three officials on August 18, 2014 when Puentevella appointed Rolando Villamor as city administrator and his daughter Sarah, as City Legal Officer after winning the 2013 mayoralty elections.

He also included Puentevella's Memorandum No. 060-10-13A that granted Rolando Villamor's request for authority to engage in private practice. moremoremore
