for his job in 2013?


Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday dismissed reports of a rift in the United Negros Alliance, which could lead to the vice governor’s running for the province’s top post in 2013, as mere speculation and rumor mongering being perpetuated by the media.

“The problem of our nation is too much politics when there is so much work yet to be done,” said Marañon, who heads the United Negros Alliance and the Nationalist People’s Coalition in Negros Occidental.

With elections a long way off, we should focus on how to boost production to get our people suffering from hunger out of poverty, he said.moremoremore

adverse claim on Capitol land


The Register of Deeds has denied the adverse claim of SM Prime Holdings Inc. on the 7.7-hectare prime property of the Negros Occidental provincial government in Bacolod City, the sale and lease of which to Ayala Land Inc. has not been acted on yet by the Commission on Audit.

In denying the registration of the Notice of Lis Pendens (adverse claims), filed by SMPHI on March 23 this year, Bonifacio Lamberto Kho said, “The undersigned Registrar of Deeds is not fully convinced of the opinion of the adverse claimant that the latter has a direct claim on the properties of the registered owner, merely based on good reasons of the adverse claimant”.

Kho said the propriety of bidding conducted by the Bidding Committee on Awards and Disposal of the province of Negros Occidental is the main issue of the matter and the Office of the Register of Deeds of Bacolod City has nothing to do with it.moremoremore
