Salceda's registration as voter opposed

DARAGA, Albay—The Election Registration Board (ERB) of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Daraga will rule within ten days whether it will approve the application of Albay Gov. Joey Salceda to be considered as a registered voter of this town.

Salceda’s transfer is in preparation for his plan to run for the congressional district.

Originally, the governor was a registered voter of his hometown, Polangui.

Early this morning, Salceda brought along with him to the hearing at COMELEC Daraga the officials of barangay Penafrancia, his alleged new residence, to bolster his claim that has been a resident of this town for at least eight years.

But vehemently interposing objection to Salceda’s application is radio broadcaster Jess Magayanes.

Magayanes said he possesses documents disproving Salceda’s claim.

The reporter works at Radyo Siram, a station allegedly owned by the family of Ako Bicol partylist Rep. Christopher Co.

Earlier reports said Co is also eyeing the post of representative of the same congressional district as Salceda.

Magayanes, however, earlier said on Radyo Veritas that no one asked or directed him to object to Salceda’s application.


Tasked to decide on Salceda’s application is are the members of the ERB, which includes the Election Officer, Local Civil Registar, and Public Schools District Supervisor.— With report from Mark Kevin Arroco, Radyo Veritas, and BICOLSTANDARD.COM
