Political tensions flare anew in Bulan, Sorsogon

BULAN, Sorosgon-- The political saga continues in this town as suspended mayor Marnellie Robles clings to her post, while vice-mayor Patricia Guran insists to be the duly installed acting mayor.

Rally at the town hall
This morning, throngs of people calling for the ouster of Robles, trooped to the town hall to hold a rally.

They failed to enter the gate of the municipal building, however, because it was ordered to be padlocked by the mayor. 

According to a document received by BICOLSTANDARD.COM, the group seeks to meet with Robles for a dialogue. They also appealed to her not to prevent Guran, whom they say is the duly constituted acting mayor, from holding office at municipal hall.

Signatories of the document include: Larena Guillion, Representative, San Vicente Women's Power Association; Ms. Sonia G. Ostonal, President, Kababaihan Kaakibat ng Barangay Pangkabuhayan Association; Felix Lolos, Head/Representative, Recall Movement; Allan Andador, Head Convenor, USWAG-Bulan; and William Gona, Head/Representative, Samahang Mahihirap ng Zone 7.

Police were immediately dispatched to the site to ensure a peaceful assembly.

Provincial PNP Deputy Col. Jerry Beares was himself present to monitor the situation.

Also at the rally site was Vice Mayor Guran. 

Text messages
Last night, text messages circulated around this town calling for a peaceful rally at 7 am today. 

The message, which was forwarded to BICOLSTANDARD.COM, reads:

"Kun habo mo na inaapi an pobre nan kasaragdayan. Kun habo mo na an karaotan nan kurapsyon an nag iiral. Kun gusto mo na mabalik ta an katoninongan sa Bulan. Sa aga mag upod ka nan magpaimod ka pakadto sa munisipio, 7 am sa aga. Peaceful rally, pang mangno sa mayor na habo magsunod sa tama. Please pass..."




It will be recalled that Governor Lee earlier issued a memorandum enjoining Bulanenos to recognize Guran as the only legally authorized official to run the Office of the  Mayor. --BICOLSTANDARD.COM
