Mirasol gets formidable
backing, Yulo won’t quit


The United Negros Alliance Saturday threw its full force behind Binalbagan Mayor Alejandro Mirasol for congressman of the fifth district of Negros Occidental making him a seemingly unbeatable candidate in the June 2 special election.

But Board Member Emilio Yulo III, his lone opponent so far, yesterday said this has not deterred him from also running for the post.

“I have not changed my mind… this is not new to me,” Yulo said, pointing out that when he first ran for board member of the fifth district, it was as an independent, and in 2010, he barely had any support from the United Negros Alliance.moremoremore

Sugar bloc to
support Benitez bill


The congressmen of Negros Occidental and other sugar producing areas are prepared to support the bill Rep. Alfredo Abelardo “Albee” Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) is set to file in May to ensure the survival of the sugar industry, Rep. Alfredo Marañon III said Saturday.

Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) Saturday said he is filing his Sugarcane Act bill when Congress resumes sessions on May 7.

The Sugarcane Act aims to raise the value of sugarcane through the creation of integrated agro industrial economic zones that will not only produce sugar, but fuel, power, bio plastics and other by-products, to enable the industry to survive trade liberalization beyond 2015, he said.moremoremore
