Comelec suspends proclamation of barangay, SK candidates

 DAGUPAN CITY – The Commission on Elections has suspended the proclamation of barangay and Sanguniang Kabataan candidates if they won, and suspends the effects of proclamation if they  have been proclaimed.

The Omnibus Orders issued by Comelec First Division cited strong evidence that material misrepresentation of their eligibility has been made in their certificates of candidacy.

The erring candidates are mostly candidates for SK positions and the violation are on eligibility as to age, Pangasinan Provincial Election Supervisor Marino Salas said.  
He said there were at least 20 suspended candidates, but he sill has to be furnished with a complete list.

Initial list of the suspended candidates are Nelson Rabaja Jr. (SK chair) of Barangay Lauren, Umingan town), Ernesto Rabi Davila Jr. (SK kagawad of barangay Catablan, Urdaneta City), Mark Paulo Ysmael Barcase (Barangay Andangin, Mangatarem), Jimmy Leal Benitez ( SK kagawad, Salapingao, Dagupan City),  Edlyn Acosta Lucena (SK kagawad, Bantog, San Quintin).  

 Salas said there were no reports yet if the candidates won.

There are more suspended candidates, but Salas said the Omnibus Orders are directly given to the municipal election officers and he has not received copies of the orders yet.

Kap Perez

 Siblings John Paul Rodas Perez, 23, and Jhe Rodas Perez, 19, who just won last May 14 polls the seat of the punong barangay (village chief) and the chairmanship of the Sangguniang Kabataan in Barangay Cabilocaan in Calasiao, Pangasinan, respectively, stand prominently at the platform of their All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) to lead the motorcade of their slate and supporters just before the 2018 Barangay & Sangguniang Kabataan Election (BSKE).
The village has 1,700 voters according to John Paul.
The two are children of San Manuel, Pangasinan Mayor Alain Jerico S. Perez. John Paul defeated seasoned Punong Barangay Cesar Legaspi in  most well- funded election campaign the village and probably the town ever witnessed.
Both candidates of the top village post used drones to spy on each other in their nine day campaign. MORTZ C. ORTIGOZA

Elected kap accuses rival of ignorance

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

 DAGUPAN CITY – A newly elected barangay chairman here blamed the ignorance of his rival on how to run a village as based on laws.

Re-elected Lucao Punong Barangay (village chief) Marcelino Fernandez exposed the lack of knowledge of his lone opponent when the latter promised to the 4,700 voters that 50 percent of the budget yearly will be used to purchase a lot where a barangay hall will be erected, and the other 50 percent of the next year’s budget will be used for the construction of the edifice.

 “He did not know how to govern a village,” Fernandez, who is the ex-officio councilor of this city, assailed rival Gerry Claveria. (more…)

ORTIGOZA: Abuse of power by the Villars in Boracay?

The brouhaha on the tearing down of the mountain in  Barangay Yapak in the 1,032- hectare Boracay Island would surely affect the standing of re-elective Senator Cynthia Villar in the next survey  of Social Weather Station and Pulse Asia if her detractors could play their cards well.

She and Senator Grace Poe hogged the No. 2 and No. 1, respectively, spots in the latest commissioned SWS’s poll conducted from April 7 to 11.


Rowen Aguirre, Executive Assistant on Boracay Affairs of Malay municipality, told CNN Philippines recently, that the Villar family- owned Costa Vista lacks some necessary permits for the construction thus the local government ordered it to stop the work on the project.

But residents there including the one who took the video that went viral in social media said the humming of construction activities there remain unabated. (more…)
