Comelec asked to schedule
Paglaum plebiscite Dec. 15


The Commission on Elections Office of the Deputy Executive Director for Operations has confirmed receipt of the letter of Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia asking it to schedule a plebiscite on December 15 for the ratification of the creation of Barangay Paglaum.

Bacolod COMELEC Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia also said that the ODEDO also received Monday the original documents submitted by the lawyer of the petitioners of Paglaum and a certification from the City Treasurer’s Office signed by Annabelle Badajos, on the availability of the required P3 million fund.

However, she said Gemeno Ymballa, the lawyer of the petitioners from Paglaum, informed her that they have a problem in securing a certification from the National Statistics Office on the population of Paglaum, which is one of the requirements under the Local Government Code.moremoremore

‘88,955 Negrense voters
without biometric records’

There are 88,955 Negrense voters who have no biometric records with the Commission on Elections in Negros Occidental, its records show.

Biometrics refers to the registrant’s picture, fingerprint and signature recorded by a computer during the registration period. The system supposedly helps the Comelec in purging the final list of multiple registrants.

Even so, the Comelec said they can still vote in the 2013 elections.moremoremore

In their memoranda, they stated that Vice Mayor Sayson is running for mayor of Bacolod City and that they discovered that Julius Sayson also filed his certificate of candidacy for the same position, she said.moremoremore
