Delay in filing of COCs for
2013 polls sought



Negros Occidental Provincial Elections Officer Jessie Suarez yesterday said he is asking the Commission on Elections commissioners to consider moving the filing of certificates of candidacy for the May 2013 elections from October 1 to 5 to November this year.

Suarez also disclosed that the COMELEC served a writ of execution Monday directing all of the barangay officials of Barangay Lipat-on, Calatrava to vacate their posts, and has directed its Legal Department to file perjury raps against the barangay captain of Tabun-ac, Toboso, before the Department of Justice.

Suarez said he is relaying his suggestion on the moving of the filing of CoCs from October to November to the COMELEC commissioners in a letter, but submits to their wisdom on the matter.moremoremore

Too early for politics

“It is best that I concentrate on being a mayor now because this is my last term”.

This is what Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday when asked if he is going to run for congressman in the 2013 l elections.

It is too early to talk about it yet, he added.

Leonardia said that he wants to focus his attention on the things that must do before his term as mayor ends, and thinking about the elections will just disrupt his work. moremoremore
