Local Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) chairman Councilor Miguel Alavar continued saying that the party is set to make the nomination for replacement of Coun. Myra Abubakar and submit the same to higher-ups.

Alavar said that the party is in the process of choosing the nominee.

Oh, c’mon, amigo Mike. Let’s stop the crap. Read on. This item was written here yesterday.

“…in things like this, Lobregat, head of the local coalition, consisting of the LDP, PDP and Nacionalista parties, calls the shot.

His word is command. It’s purely political. In a general perspective, (Please omit – “could not” here. It was our writing that was misencoded) even the courts could not rule on such decisions…”

The painting is on the wall. Of the three contenders you mentioned - Victor Liozo, Kaizer Olaso and Gerky Valesco, with the “... Lobregat hint, it is now clear who his or, say, the party’s choice is - that it’s "somebody" who is through with his three consecutive terms.” and

“… only one is a former councilor. Gets na?

Political a choice as it is, SS cannot but throw a salute.”

Dist. 2 Congressman Mannix Dalipe expressed strong support to the forging of the Investment Management Contract (IMC) by the local electric cooperative.

Dalipe explained, that that is the recovery option member-consumers chose in a vote during the Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA).

Dalipe believes that through the IMC, the winning private investor can infuse much needed capital to save Zamcelco from its worsening financial position.

He added, this is the solution to the serious problems that Zamcelco is facing now.

And on the issue for the National Electrification Administration (NEA) to takeover Zamcelco, Dalipe contravened the move of Mayor Beng Climaco, saying such move will not help the power cooperative solve its financial and systems loss problems.

He opined further, NEA does not have the necessary manpower, much more the financial resources to help the ailing power cooperative.

Reading the Dalipe arguments, SS gives credence to the ideas. Thumbs up.

This here is one such achievement that we have been prodding authorities to step up - relegating to the sides, street pushers. They are pushovers and not a factor in helping eradicate the illegal drug trade. Moreover, they will only clog up our already cramped jail facilities. Read on, folks.

A shipment of 500 kilos of illegal drugs worth some P4 billion was intercepted at the Manila International Container Port (MICP) late Tuesday.

It now stands to be the largest drug haul in Philippine history.

Concealed in two magnetic lifters, weighing four tons each, the drug shipment was discovered after a couple of tries of detection using K9 sniffing dogs from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

The magnetic lifters are very thick that they had to be opened. Presto! The PDEA K9 dogs immediately reacted and the shipment was confirmed to be shabu.

Lapeña now surfaces as a good choice for the job. Kudos!

Citing bible verse Romans 13: “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason.”

Pacquiao explained, the “sword” does not refer to a literal blade but the one used to execute wrongdoers if the death penalty required beheading.

Thus, Sen. Manny Pacquio bared, it’s wrong for individuals to kill people but not for governments.

“If you will read Romans 13 and study it carefully, God is giving the authority to impose death penalty to those who commit heinous crimes,” he said.

If things in the lower house stay as they are, there’s no stopping it from lending support to all Duterte proposals.

Already run by the supermajority, it is now a megamajority, as it retained Quezon Rep. Danilo Suarez, as the minority leader.

The point is, Suarez is a known staunch political supporter of Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. So, a megamajority certainly rules congress now.    (By Jimmy Cabato)
