LINGAYEN- Vice Mayor Pedro A. Merrera III of Binmaley is set to be investigated by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) for “grave misconduct in office” filed by the members of Sangguniang Bayan of the town.

During the SP’ regular session last September 17, a complaint against Merrera dated September 13, 2012 for “grave misconduct in office” was referred to the SP Committee on Good Governance and Public Accountability for investigation.

The complaint was signed by Binmaley Sangguniang Bayan Members Jose Z. Carrera Jr., Ellen F. Alipio, Urbano C. Delos Angeles III, Jocelyn V. Bautista, Franco C. Francisco, Vismark V. Valerio and Jesus A. Aquino.

In part, the complaint reads, “During (our) special session on August 18, 2012, six o’clock in the evening, the respondent, Vice Mayor Pedro A. Merrera III, who presided (over the session), willfully and intentionally disregarded, and thus, violated the Rules of Parliamentary Procedure and the Internal Rules of Procedure of the SB by deliberating and arguing with the councilors all throughout the session.”

It further said Merrera, ” instead of accommodating motions and hearing deliberations then subjecting the issue for vote, deliberately defied and thus disregarded well-established rules of procedure.”

The administrative charge against for grave misconduct in office is under Section 60 (c) of Republic Act No. 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991.
