Cam Norte Vice Gov. Pimentel is now acting governor

DAET, Camarines Norte—Vice-Governor Jonah Pimentel has assumed office as the acting governor of this province, following the suspension of Gov. Edgardo “Egay” Tallado. Board Member Pamela Pardo, meanwhile, is now acting vice-governor.

Pimentel
On October 30, a special session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan was called to pass a resolution recognizing Pimentel and Pardo as acting governor and vice-governor, respectively.

In a statement, Pimentel’s wife Bembem Venida-Pimentel said: "Vice Governor Jonah G. Pimentel is never one to turn his back to the call of duty. These may be challenging days for him, but he is facing each one head on."

An ally of Tallado, Pimentel is running for his third term as vice-governor in the upcoming polls.

It would be recalled that Tallado was meted a one-year suspension order over his refusal to implement Civil Service Commission (CSC)’s order to reinstate the provincial veterinarian.

He was served the decision on October 16, right after he filed his Certificate of Candidacy for governor.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
