‘Julius Sayson withdraws,
but appearance needed'
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod mayoralty candidate Julius Sayson has filed his statement of withdrawal before the Commission on Elections in Manila claiming that he has received death threats.
Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said she received a copy of Sayson's statement of withdrawal, that was sent through LBC, at about 10 a.m. yesterday.
Sayson reportedly went to Manila to file his statement of withdrawal, she said.
However, COMELEC Manila refused to accept it because, according to a COMELEC Resolution, withdrawal should be filed in the same office where a candidate filed his or her certificate of candidacy, she said.
