IT’S NOT OVER YET BETWEEN NONG NIEL AND JUN BIRON
IN filing his election protest, former Iloilo governor Nong Niel says he has at least 30 witnesses against Congressman-elect Jun Biron Jr. of Iloilo’s 4th District.
If Nong Niel were to be believed, there was rampant vote-buying in the district during the elections, with each voter receiving from P200 to P300.
He says his 30 witnesses will speak out against Biron.
Nong Niel, who lost to Biron by 3,517 votes, says his rival must be disqualified, and therefore, he should be proclaimed as the rightful winner.
For sure, the congressman-elect will not take Nong Niel’s accusation sitting down. Jun is expected to fight the election protest tooth and nail with a battery of good lawyers.
The case could drag for some three years and by the time it would be decided, it is election time again.
By that time, will Nong Niel still have the stamina to run for congressman? He has been defeated twice already. Will his third time’s the charm?
Say mo, Obet?

BOBOY IS SUPER RICH WHILE 2ND DIST. WALLOWS IN POVERTY
IN this 2012 Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN), Boboy listed no liabilities. In short, he has no debt whatsoever. Wala utang.
With no liabilities, Boboy is one of the Top 10 richest congressmen in the country. He was in the Top 10 last year, too.
Boboy’s 2012 SALN places his net worth at P301, 576,151. The poor people of the 2nd District who have been deprived of good public service for years can only imagine how big that amount is.
Had Boboy democratized his wealth to his dearly beloved pomoluyo, he could have won the recent elections.
Don’t you agree, Kiting?

ILOILO CITY IS MOST BUSINESS-FRIENDLY
THIS southern metropolis is most business-friendly among business process outsourcing (BPO) havens in the country. Proofs of this are the many call centers mushrooming around.
BPO investors find the city attractive because of its huge pool of skilled labor, peace and order and better facilities.
In short, the investment climate in Iloilo City is good. And this has been brought in part by the good management of the city. Kudos to Mayor Jed and his economic team for a job well done.
The latest recognition is another clear manifestation of the city’s growing reputation as an ideal investment destination.
More investments mean more jobs for the Ilonggos and more income for the city.
