Casureco II Public Information Officer Manny Rojo said that Rey Hernandez of Calabanga District, Tomas De Vera of Magarao District, Oscar Borja of Bombon District, and Agusto Pacis of Pili District filed their Certificates of Candidacy (COC).

The districts of Naga South, Naga North, Milaor, Minalabac, Tinambac/Siruma, and Canaman, meanwhile, have no candidates.

Former Board President Rey Hernandez who filed his COC said that he is not even sure if he will not qualify on account of the strict requirements imposed by Republic Act 10531, or the National Electrification Administration Reform Act of 2013.

Section 26-B of said law states that the minimum qualifications of a director or officer of the electric cooperative are as follows: “(a) He or she is a Filipino citizen; (b) He or she is a graduate of a four (4)-year course; (c) He or she is between twenty-one (21) and seventy (70) years old, on the date of election; (d) He or she is of good moral character; (e) He or she is a member of the electric cooperative in good standing for the last five (5) years immediately preceding the election or appointment; (f) He or she is an actual resident and consumer in the district that he or she seeks to represent for at least two (2) years immediately preceding the election; and (g) He or she has attended at least two (2) Annual General Membership Assemblies (AGMA) for the last five (5) years immediately preceding the election or appointment.

The election of the Board of Directors will be held on August 30, 2014.

Only those who have been member-consumers on June 1, 2014 will be qualified to vote.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
