The tension in Camarines Norte over the scandal which involved Gov. and Mrs. Edgardo “Egay” Tallado continues to heat up this week.

Last Sunday, a group of protesters carrying streamers, marched around the province with streamers urging the governor to step down.

“Ibangon ang dangal [ng] Camarines Norte,” they implored on their streamers.

On Monday, some 500 protesters reiterated the call in front of the provincial capitol.

Meanwhile, on social media, the Tallado Resign Movement continues to gain support.

Allegedly heading the campaign are Eloisa Sto. Domingo, spokesperson, and Manuel Alarcon, provincial coordinator, according to an image purportedly posted by members of said movement.

In a statement, the group slammed how the alleged kidnapping incident of Mrs. Josie Tallado and her friend Darleen Francisco was “heavily dramatized,” and colored with “deceitful utterances” as the governor sobbed before the media.

The group’s call to action is to remove “this Toxic and Immoral Leadership in our province,” referring to the governor.

“This is not just about social justice, but, more than that, about improving society for all and to meet a popular desire for justice to be seen to be done, and for moral accountability from public officers,” it reads.

Last month, Tallado made public his belief that his political opponents are behind the efforts to discredit him.

Residents remain to be divided on the issue.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
