An electric consumer in Dumaguete City has filed a disqualification complaint against a member of the board of directors of the Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative for alleged nepotism.
This developed as the election for members of the board of directors of the cooperative, particularly in District 5 which is Dumaguete South, is scheduled for next month. District 5 is presently represented in the board by director Ricardo Maputi.
Roland Ramos of the Land Transportation Office Dumaguete City vehemently denied that he orchestrated the filing of the disqualification complaint against Maputi, upon filing his certificate of candidacy Saturday.
Ramos said the complaint was filed by an electric consumer identified as Cirilo Collado, the president of ND-Piston, a transport group in Dumaguete.
The disqualification case was anchored on the prohibitions under the by-laws, now being scrutinized by the screening committee headed by Dominador Tragico. The complaint states that two of Maputi’s sons are employed at NORECO 2.
Under the new law, Republic Act No. 9520, a sitting board of director can prolong his stay in office unless removed through an election that is held every two years.
Acting general manager Dionefred Macahig of NORECO 2 said that Dumaguete North director Col. Constantino Sayson, (retiree) was reelected unopposed in last Saturday’s election.
Dumaguete West director Fe Marie Tagle, is also expected to run unopposed as well as director Pamela Yap of district 7 representing Siaton, and Judge Felix Gaudiel of Distrcit 9 representing the Basay-Bayawan areas.
Meanwhile, there are indications that somebody may contest incumbent director Jordan Salma of Tanjay for District 1.*JG
