M A R AW I C i t y - - T h e Commission on Elections (Comelec) has yet to receive the report on the alleged video that went viral on the social media showing the alleged “pre-shading” of ballots during the voting process in Lanao del Sur and Marawi City on May 13. Provincial Election Supervisor Allan Kadun said this after video footages surfaced on social media showing a woman, wearing red long dress and light brown scarf, shading ballots filed thickly infront of her.

THE reign of the Ecleo dynasty in Dinagat Islands is over. Two-term Representative and human rights lawyer Arlene “Kaka” Bag-ao is the new Governor of the 12-year old province, ending a succession of four terms held by the Ecleos who had long ruled Dinagat before it was carved out of Surigao del Norte to

constitute a province. According to the Commission on Elections’ partial, unofficial results based on 100% or election returns and posted by ABS-CBN’s Halalan 2019, Bag-ao (Liberal Party) won 29,869 votes against the administration PDP-Laban candidate Ben Glen Ecleo’s 26 843 but her running mate Carlos Eludo lost to PDP’s Nilo Demerey who garnered 27,833 votes against Eludo’s 21,857.

For the post of lone district representative to Congress, Alan 1 Ecleo, who got 26,746 votes, won by a margin of only 488 votes against LP’s Ann Pinat’s 26,258. Bag-ao is a human rights lawyer who served as Executive Director of the alternative law firm, Balaod Mindanaw. She served as lawyer for the farmers who marched to Manila from Sumilao in Bukidnon in 2007, and served from 2010 to 2013 in Congress,

as Akbayan party-list Representative. She was elected Dinagat’s lone representative to Congress in 2013 and was re-elected in 2016. She also won against an Ecleo in 2013, earning her the title “dragon slayer.” Geraldine Ecleo-Villaroman was elected as the first governor of Dinagat Islands in 2007 while her mother Glenda Buray Ecleo was representative. Glenda ran for Governor in 2010 and is completing her third term on June 30 this year. In 2010, Ruben Ecleo Jr. succeeded his mother Glenda as 1st district Representative but was dropped from the rolls of Congress on May DEED EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT BETWEEN HEIRS OVER A BANK DEPOSITS WITH WAIVER OF RIGHTS Notice is hereby served to the public that the intestate estate of the late ACMAD L.

31, 2012. The fugitive Ecleo was convicted in a graft case, which he appealed before the Sandiganbayan but was denied with finality, and was also convicted in a Cebu City court in 2012 for killing his wife. With Ecleo Jr. out, Bagao, then Akbayan party-list representative, was appointed caretaker of the province’s lone congressional district in late 2012. Her stint as caretaker, she said, gave her the platform “to show that government can work for the people and that the resources of government can change the lives of the poor and the marginalized sector.” Bag-ao implemented projects and programs in the province, which included P120 million worth of infrastructure projects, P8 million worth of scholarship for the youth and P3 million worth of free medical assistance. She also distributed 77 brand new multicabs and 33 pump boats to the different barangays in the province. “We launched a showcase of how things can be different here in Dinagat. We made our message clear and simple such that even little children can understand,” she said. “Sabi nga nila (They said that) it would take a miracle for us to win in the last elections, and that miracle happened. The miracle was not me, the miracle that made the impossible a reality was

because of all of you,” Bagao said. In the 2013 election, Bagao presented herself to the electorate go give her the mandate to represent the lone congressional district. She won against Gwendolyn Ecleo, former mayor of Dinagat town. In that election, Bag-ao ran with an Ecleo – Geraldine, the Vice Governor who ran for governor against her mother Glenda. The matriarch won the race by a slim margin of 625 votes. “It is not impossible to defeat a dragon if you are on the right path in the quest for change and hope,” Bag-o then said during her oathtaking in 2013. Of seven towns in Dinagat, the Ecleos won in two towns: Ozzy Ecleo (PDP) won the mayoralty in Basilisa against Dondon Ensoy (LP) while in San Jose, Yngwie Ecleo (Ind) won against the PDP’s Joslyn Ecleo. But in Dinagat town, Craig Ecleo (PDP) lost the mayoralty to LP’s Yoyo Leyran. In Cagdianao, Denden Longos was elected mayor against the PDP’s Boy Cagape; in Libjo, the unopposed Sammy Llamera (PDP) won; in Loreto town, the PDP’s Doan Ladaga won by a margin of 35 votes against Nena QuijanoLadaga (LP); whle in Tubajon, independent candidate Fely Pedrablanca won against the LP’s Geng Vargas.

Cebu Pacific opens applications for new batch of Cadet Pilots

LEADING Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) is opening applications for a seventh batch of Cadet Pilots to be trained at the prestigious Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) in Australia through CEB’s “study now, pay later, zero-interest” training program. The carrier will be selecting 16 cadet pilots to join six other batches currently undergoing pilot training in Australia. Application period for the seventh batch of Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilots will run from May 17 to 26, 2019. Interested applicants may visit https://www. surveymonkey.com/r/ YFDGFGM to apply for the program starting 12 noon on May 17, 2019. There is no application fee for the program. Only applicants who pass the online pre-screening will proceed with the next stages of the selection process. The selection process consists of interviews,

computer aptitude tests, medical examinations, psychological tests and spoken English tests. Only successful applicants undergo an on-site screening for core skills and pilot aptitude tests, among others, where a fee of AU$425.00 (about PHP19,000) will be charged. The Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilot Program is a multi-million dollar initiative that aims to provide a steady flow of highly-skilled, internationally trained airline pilots over the next five years. Applicants must be Filipino citizens who are college graduates who are proficient in English. There are no preferred college degrees, and applicants need only have an average grade of at least 80% or its equivalent in subjects related to Math, Physics and English. Cebu Pacific shoulders the entire cost of the pilot training. Cadet-pilots who successfully complete

the training are assured of employment with the carrier. They then reimburse the cost of the program through monthly salary deduction over a maximum of ten years at zero-interest. One of these applicants was Darryl Dave Ditucalan from Iligan City. A certified Electronics and Communications Engineer, Ditucalan graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology. His parents are farmers and local government officials in the province of Lanao del Norte. Ditucalan took a chance and applied for the program. After undergoing a comprehensive selection process, he became part of the first batch of CEB Cadet Pilots. After a year of training in Adelaide, Australia, Ditucalan and 11 other cadets are set to return to the Philippines by mid-June where they

are assured of positions as First Officers in the carrier’s pilot corps. “To those wanting to be pilots but are financially or otherwise constrained, take advantage of this opportunity offered by Cebu Pacific. The ten

year payback period is very affordable compared to what this career can bring to you and your family,” said Ditucalan. Since the program was launched in late2017, CEB has deployed 80 cadet pilots to FTA,

selected from over 38,000 applicants, with a sixth batch set to depart for training by July 2019. For more information, visit http:// www.flyfta.com/pilottraining/cebu-pacificcadet-program.

Padayon Pilipino candidates win majority seats in Misamis Oriental THE roaring sounds in the political battlefield in Misamis Oriental have ended. However, the cries of the losers still reverberate in the four corners of the province. No doubt, the worthy warriors win. With a tangible accomplishment and performance, no amount of personal attacks could sway the enormous support of the people against the worthy candidates. The Padayon Pilipino regional political party led by Governor Yevgeny Vincente “Bambi” Emano had demonstrated its strong grip and control of Misamis Oriental’s political battlefield. Bambi wins the gubernatorial race by a wide margin as against his closest rival Julio Uy, of the Nationalist Union Party (NUP). Uy might have given his best, but the people believed in

Bambi more. Un k nown to many, Bambi Emano’s winning the gubernatorial was the most crucial in all his political career. Having officially installed as the Chairman of the Padayon Pilipino, Bambi’s responsibility to make the party intact is no nonsense job. Aside from maintaining the public trust, Bambi must create a formidable political party that would be able to meet and surmount the political demands of the time. In view of the compelling demands of the time, Bambi must re-engineer the structure of the Padayon Pilipino political party. He must reexamine the strength and weaknesses of the Padayon Pilipino based on his personal experiences and the observation of people, not

necessarily closer to him. An independent scrutiny would provide the good Governor the real picture of the Padayon Pilipino, as a regional political party and as the political party of the people. It is only by conducting an honest and independent restructuring of the political party that Emano could be assured of a strong, formidable and united Padayon Pilipino. With the majority of the party mates winning the majority seats in the provincial board, the Padayon Pilipino enjoys an advantageous political platform. Perhaps, finding the appropriate political strategies would be appropriate, so to speak. Anyway, political strategy is a very complicated subject that the CYNOSURE could not write about it

Cris Diaz

simply in 500 to 600 words. The are a plenty of aggregates that must be taken into consideration. But, the most important thing is that the strategy could solicit positive response from the people. For now, the CYNOSURE is extending the warmest greetings to the winners of the May 13, 2019 midterm election this year. Everyone is optimistic that the newly elected public officials would deliver their campaign promises.

A Deeper View

In hindsight

IT is always good to view certain events after the fact because you’ll have the benefit of hindsight like when we try to dissect the nitty-gritty of last Monday’s midterm elections. The results, especially in the senatorial race, admittedly was a rout by the candidates personally endorsed by the president against their foes. And the Palace spin masters were quick to claim it was mainly due to what they say as the Duterte magic. But is there really such a thing? Of course, the diehards would claim yes there is such a thing proved by the rout itself. The non-diehards, on the other hand, would argue there’s no such a thing as

Duterte magic that enabled the rout to happen. What was glaring was Otso Diretso’s refusal to strongly make the threeyear Duterte presidency’s performance the crux of the matter in last Monday’s election. Justified this by arguing the midterm elections is not a presidential election. But they fatally forgot that midterm elections serve as referendum on the sitting president. Duterte was the issue but inexplicably the opposition spared him and his presidency from being subjected to a litmus test if it had delivered according to its 2016 campaign promises and what it has accomplished after three years in office. This did not

happen. Duterte’s endorsement of his favored senatorial candidates was then not critiqued according to his presidency’s own performance. The myth that he is doing well for the country was perpetuated instead of being subjected to close scrutiny. Knowing the midterm election is crucial to the remaining three years of his presidency, Duterte left no stone unturned to ensure the victory of his favored candidates. He personally endorsed them and campaigned hard for them. In between regular television programs were political ad placements of his candidates with him strongly endorsing each of them. This

Jesse E.L. Bacon II

phenomenon was witnessed by the nation during the campaign period. So massive was the tv ad placements of his candidates that viewers became nauseous about them. Truth is those political ads showing the president separately endorsing his favored candidates reached a point of becoming an annoyance on air. Add the infomercials these Duterte favored candidates aired after the filing of their certificates of candidacies in October, last See HINDSIGHT, page 11

Letters from Davao

It’s time to move on

AS the cliche goes, “the people have spoken”. Many polling precincts had become a virtual market place where votes were sold. But such is the nature of the beast. It’s a gamble where bets are placed in “the dark”... meaning one foregoes with probabilities and just say “come what may”. For those who sold their votes, they just gambled their future. For the rest of us life must move on. That’s for the local election. The national election derby is another story. In the past, captive votes were traded for guns and golds but since the fiefdoms of Andal Ampatuan had been totally expunged those running for national positions have to rely on the strength

of their party organizations. The regional parties and the alliance that they forged were a force to reckon with. Hugpong Ng Pagbabago which was spearheaded by Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte welded an alliance that became an effective vehicle for senatorial race like what we have just seen in the May 13 midterm elections. For certain this will determine the outcome of future elections. HnP-PDP Laban totally obliterated the Liberal Party senatorial slate Otso Deretso. In the meantime, Dabawenyos celebrate the spectacular performance of their homegrown neophyte politicians - Christopher “Bong” Go and

Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa. They and the rest of the candidates identified with Pres. Rodrigo Duterte decisively won the elections. Their victory is extremely crucial to this administration as it embarks on the implementation stage of its Build, Build, Build program. The Duterte government just achieved unprecedented milestones in the Philippines. Its 10-point economic agenda and tax reforms earned a bbb+ investment grade for the country, Duterte himself registered an “Excellent” approval never experienced in the annals of the Social Weather Station or trust rating and he is bound to have full cooperation from the legislative department.

Jun Ledesma

The autonomous government in the Bangsamoro region will soon be fully functional paving a new era of peace and development in Mindanao while the local peace talks with the New Peoples Army continue to gain headway. We have seen the defeat of left-leaning political organizations while the voice of Jose Ma. Sison, head of the moribund communist party of the Philippines, had become pipsqueak and irrelevant. It’s time to move forward.

Mid-term elections usher in fresh faces, new era of politics Friday, May 17, 2019

By Christine Cudis PNA

AS the mid-term elections nears its conclusion, results show that voters chose to try a new brand of leadership, not only in national posts but also in local governments as well. Aside from the various issues that cropped up as the votes were counted, a more shocking moment also unfolded -- the people have elected young, passionate, and idealistic leaders. With these attributes combined with a fresh face and promise of change, these new local chief executives brought down incumbents with big names who ruled for generations. Vico Sotto (Pasig City) While he was born to TV host-comedian Vic Sotto and actress Coney Reyes, Vico seemed to have a different path to take on and is more than just an eye candy. Hi s m ay o r a l t y b i d seemed to be like bumping into a thick wall as he faced incumbent Robert Eusebio, whose family ruled the city for 27 years.

From eft to right, San Juan Mayor-elect Francis Zamora; Manila Mayor-elect Isko Moreno; and Pasig Mayor-elect Vico Sotto

The 29-year Pasig mayor-elect is a Political Science graduate from Ateneo de Manila University. He was recognized best-performing councilor in 2016. The young politician

banked on healthcare for Pasig residents, especially those from the eastern part of the city which he describes as the people who were left behind; localized freedom of information,

and anti-corruption. He also mentioned although the city cradles PHP10.7billion budget, one of the country’s biggest, residents do not get to benefit. In 1992, Vicente “En-

teng” Eusebio -- the family’s patriarch -- was elected as the city’s mayor. When his nine-year term ended in 2001, he was succeeded by his wife, Soledad CruzEusebio. Vicente again ran

in 2004 while Robert ran in 2007 and served as mayor until 2013. He ran again in 2016, replacing his wife Maribel, who served as mayor from 2013 to 2016. Isko Moreno (Manila) Manila mayor-elec t Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, a former scavenger, vowed to restore the Philippine capital city to its old glory, describing it as “deteriorating” now because of dirty surroundings. T h e f o r m e r a c t o rturned-politician eyes to create physical development by building more green projects and more breathing spaces in the city. Moreno, who also served as Manila councilor and vice mayor, also wanted the proposed social amelioration or poverty alleviation program and the 10-year infrastructure program to be felt by Manileño’s in the next 12 months. The 44-year-old actorturned-p olitician won against former president and reelectionist Joseph Estrada. Prior to his candidacy See POLITICS, page 11

Mayor Sara hails Dabawenyos for favoring 12 HNP Senate bets DAVAO CIT Y -- Mayor Sara Z. Duterte has hailed Dabawenyos for their straight vote for 12 Senate candidates backed by her political party, the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), a first in this city’s history. “I have said that I feel alone every day, stressing over making sure Davao City is okay but when I am in distress, Dabawenyos carry me on their backs,” she said in her Instagram message on Wednesday. “Sa tanan kalisod, baha, bagyo ug kani nga election sa senador wala gyud ko ninyo gibiyaan (In all the challenges, flooding, storm and this election for senators, you never left me),” Sara said, admitting she was emotional when writing her message. Sara was the campaign manager of HNP, the regional party she formed along with the four Davao Region governors – Claude Bautista of Davao Occidental, Jay vee Tyron Uy of Compostela Valley, Anthony del Rosario of Davao del Norte, and Nelson Dayanghirang of Davao Oriental.

She went campaigning with the HNP-backed candidates all throughout the 90-day election period. The mayor said she is humbled by the results of the May 13 elections as she quoted Luke 12:48: “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required”. She admitted to have cried when she learned that Davao City delivered a 12-0 vote for the senatorial candidates of the HNP. “The tears flowed and the sobbing followed,” she said. “Daghang salamat sa inyong tanan (Thank you very much to all of you),” the mayor said, vowing to work harder “until I break.” In the final election count in Davao City, Dabawenyos voted for Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go (533,550); Ronald dela Rosa (518,778); Pia Cayetano (448,599); Cynthia Villar (445,757); Francis Tolentino (400,297); Sonny Angara (384,773); Imee Marcos (367,008); JV Ejercito (322,773); Koko Pimentel (297,452); Dong Mangudadatu (297,338); Bong Revilla (239,899); a n d Ji n g g o y E s t r a d a

Davao Light is now ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 certified DAVAO Light and Power Co., Inc., an Aboitiz company and a subsidiary of the AboitizPower, has achieved another milestone as it is now an ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 certified company. TÜV Rheinland (TÜVR), which is an internationally accredited certification body that audits the compliance of an organization with international standards, recommended the ISO certification of Davao Light after passing two stages of audit. The ISO 14001:2015 or the environmental management system certification refers to the requirements in enhancing Davao Light’s environmental performance. Meanwhile, the ISO 45001:2018, which is the occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, was for the requirements of Davao Light to manage risks and

opportunities to help prevent work-related injury and ill health to workers. D u r i ng t he au d it , TÜVR has validated that Davao Light has met all the requirements of ISO 45001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015. “This milestone reflects how Davao Light is committed to continually improve the efficiency of its business processes especially in relation to occupational health and safety and environmental policies.” said Engr. Rodger S. Velasco, Davao Light’s President and COO. Velasco also added that the accreditation will help the company’s various business processes attain a much improved business performance. Davao Light, the third largest electric distribution utility in the Philippines, will continue to advance business and communities where it serves.

DAVAO CIT Y -- Former Special Assistant to the President and now Senator-elect Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go obtained the highest number of votes in Davao City among the senatorial candidates. Based on the final unofficial results published in ABS-CBN’s Halalan 2019 website, Go garnered 533,550 votes or 83.92% of the 635,806 voters of the city’s three congressional districts. Former Philippine National Police director Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa came second highest with 518,778 votes; comebacking Senator Pia Cayetano, 448,599; reelectionist Cynthia Villar, 445,757; former Met rop olit an Mani la Development Authority chair Francis Tolentino, 400,297; reelectionist Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, 384,773; incumbent Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, 367,008; reelectionist JV Ejercito, 322,773; reelectionist Koko Pimentel, 297,452; D on g Man g u d a d atu , 297,338; comebacking Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., 239,899; and Jinggoy Estrada, 225,217. Atty. Krisna Samantha Caballero, city election officer and BOC chairman, said the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) reported a voters’ turnout 64.57%, although lower from their target of 70% to 80%. “It’s still an ample number of voters,” she said. Caballero reminded the politicians to submit their statement of contributions and expenditures (SOCE) on or before June 12 regardless if they have won, lost, or withdrawn their candidacies. She added that the COMELEC in Davao Region had also documented violations to the election rules committed by local politicians. “It is documented. It will be acted upon,” she said, adding that it would not be easy because some of the complainants would later withdraw complaints before they would even progress. (Antonio L.

Meanwhile, total revenues for 2018 reached PHP17.49 billion or 8.13 percent higher than the target for the year. The amount is also higher by 14 percent compared to the total revenues recorded a year earlier. Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade lauded the PPA for its robust fiscal performance which, in turn, shall contribute to the Duterte administration’s “Build, Build, Build” program. “As I previously said to

the men and women of the PPA, their agency’s future fiscal performance shall be measured against their latest records. The agency has achieved so much in terms of dividends remittance despite the massive infrastructure spending for port rehabilitation and development. This kind of fiscal management shall truly aid the government in achieving the ‘Golden Age of Infrastructure’,” Tugade said. According to PPA General Manager Jay Daniel Santiago, the agency’s performance in the last two years has placed the PPA on stable financial

ground, which will enable the agency to continue sustaining port services of the highest standards. “The streamlining of port processes coupled with strategic port development and modernization have greatly contributed to this strong performance as we aim for our operations to be on par with global standards,” Santiago said. Santiago added that the overall remittance of Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCCs) is a positive indication of the country’s growing economic status worldwide. “This is also a testament to the resiliency of the Philippine economy as it continues to thrive despite external pressures from different foreign economies,” Santiago added. With this, the PPA is expected to once again land in the higher echelon of the “Billionaires’ Club” of GOCCs contributing billions of pesos in dividends to the national government. PPA is a consistent member of this club in the last decade but belonging only to the bottom half of the club. It only upped the ante when the Duterte administration took over in 2016. (DOTR PR)

Meanwhile, 603rd Brigade Commander Col. Wilbur C. Mamawag said that the recoveries was part of the focused military operation to thwart the local terrorists in creating havoc in his area of jurisdiction.

its aircrafts take at least 49 to 66 minutes before taking off during the hearings of the CAB held on May 2 and 6. The hour-long stay on the tarmac was observed to have pushed Cebu Pacific’s OTP to an average of 51.16 percent, with lows of around 30 percent in March. “This record, according to Cebu Pacific during the hearings, impelled the airline to finally come up with the decision to cancel flights. It said that the flight cancellations will “create space” in their flight and crew inventory, “make way for operational recovery,” and “minimize rolling delays.”

The airline made clear that the factors adversely affecting its OTP are largely within its internal operational sphere,” the DOTr said. Furthermore, Cebu Pacific was found to have “crewing problems” as the additional time spent by on-duty crew on the tarmac consumes the working hours and reserves that were supposed to be utilized at a much later schedule. Cebu Pacific applied for cancellation of 172 one-way domestic flights from 28 April through 10 May 2019 equivalent to about 14 flights out of its 400 daily domestic flights. (PNA)

PPA remits record P9.41-B in dividends, taxes for 2018 THE Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) continues its strong fiscal performance, as it remitted PHP3.51 billion in dividends to the national coffers in 2018. On top of this, the stateowned agency likewise paid PHP5.9 billion in taxes for 2018, more than half of the total taxes it paid in the last 10 years. Overall, the PPA is contributing a record-breaking amount of PHP9.41 billion in terms of dividends and taxes to the national government for the past year, which can be used for the government’s various social welfare, health and other projects. Latest data from the PPA showed that total dividends for 2018 amounted to PhP3.51 billion, setting another all-time record for the PPA. In 2017, PPA remitted some PHP3.1 billion, its highest recorded dividend then in the last 30 years. However, dividend payment for 2018 overshadowed the previous year’s, and now marks PPA’s highest dividend payment in history. While growth percentage slowed down for the period covered, the increase in dividend remained high as the 2018 figure is 13 percent higher than the 2017 dividends remitted. PPA is mandated to remit at least 50 percent of its annual net income to the NG after it was granted fiscal autonomy during the term of former President Corazon C. Aquino. See REMITS, page 8

Promote CDO to Promote Normin Founded as the Promote CDO Foundation Inc. on March 15, 2002, Promote NorMin Foundation Inc. is a private, voluntary, nonstock non-profit corporation which serves as a venue for the convergence of the public and private sectors in the promotion of the social, cultural and economic development of Cagayan de Oro and its environs. The Foundation changed its name to Promote NorMin Foundation, Inc. as a bow to the emerging metropolization of Cagayan de Oro and its adjacent cities and municipalities in the region. Promote NorMin is composed of key executives of the major business establishments in the region (commercial, industrial, educational) and executives of Local Government and key National Line Agencies. It aims to rationalize social, cultural, and economic promotions and conservation events by working together as a group and thus maximizing the use of resources from both the government and private sectors The City of Cagayan de Oro has experienced tremendous growth in previous years. With its strategic location, the city naturally evolved as the

trade and service center for Mindanao. The city’s natural endowments were reinforced by the presence of the basic infrastructure and amenities supported by a focused vision for its economic future. This was made possible by the strategic alliance espoused by both private and government sectors to help shape the landscape and local governance to enhance Cagayan de Oro’s role as a premier trade and service center in the country. To further rationalize the growth directions of the city, a group of local businessmen identified the need to promote Cagayan de Oro City in a sustained and continuous manner. Thus, in January 2000, Rep. Constantino G. Jaraula of the Lone Congressional District of Cagayan de Oro, requested the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to gather key officers of the major companies operating in the city and province to solicit their support for a unified investment promotion program for the city, and at the same time support and encourage preservation and enrichment of its historical identity and cultural heritage. From the Congressional Development Fund, Rep. Jaraula commissioned the University of Asia and the Pacific (UAP) to come up with Strategic Investment Promotion Program for Cagayan de Oro.

year, until Feb. 11, the eve of the commencement of the official campaign period. If you did not feel nauseous about them, I don’t know what can make you one. The concern here is not only the frequency of the tv ad airing. It is the cost. A 30-seconder tv ad aired during television’s prime time costs P1.2 million in ABS-CBN and P250,000 in GMA. Because of its exorbitant cost many asked where did the favored Duterte candidates source their huge war chests enabling them to place multiple tv ads in between popular television series during one episode in one prime time evening? The administration favored candidates won because Duterte staked his neck for them plus the huge war chest available to them that those in the opposition did not have. So there was no Duterte magic in

for Manila mayor, Moreno also served as Undersecretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Francis Zamora (San Juan) After being a groomsman for a long time, this year’s election finally saw 41-year-old Francis Zamora become the groom. Zamora, a former basketball player and businessman, defeated Janella Estrada, daughter of senatorial bet Jinggoy Estrada, in the mayoralty race. After serving as vice mayor from 2010 to 2016, Zamora tried his luck for the city’s top post but lost to Guia Gomez, mother of senatorial bet JV Ejercito. The victory of the longtime vice mayor put an end to the five-decade control of the Ejercito-Estrada clan in the City of San Juan. The new mayor benchmarked his campaign on the promise of a new San Juan, offering its residents free WiFi in all public areas, high-rise in-city housing, and affordable healthcare. He also spoke of transforming San Juan into a smart city that would compete once more with wealthy neighbors Makati, Taguig, and Quezon City. Francis is the son of Lone District of San Juan Rep. Ronaldo Zamora. Estrada, meanwhile, anchored her campaign on the legacy of her family, which could be traced as far back as when her grandfather Joseph first won as mayor in 1969. The former president was succeeded by Jinggoy, her uncle JV, and Gomez. (PNA)

The winners of the second district were Girlie Balaba, Ma. Lourdes Gaane, Ian Mark Nacaya, Suzette Daba, Teodulfo Lao, Enrico Salcedo, Jocelyn Rodriguez and Edgar Cabanlas. Statements “I know what you feel right now and what you feel right now I feel just as much. I am moved by your expressions of disappointments and dismays but please don’t feel bad for me. Ayaw mo kaluoy, ayaw mo kalain. Ayaw mo kasuko. Everything will be okay,” said Benaldo in a statement.

Benaldo added: “I would like to thank everyone who supported me, believed in me, belittled me and pushed me to become better. To my staff, volunteers, colleagues, sa tanan nitabang ug nipaabot sa ilang suporta, to the people who I met at their doorsteps, I can never fully repay you for all that you’ve done, all that you had to go through, and all you had to endure.” “ Thank you for the prayers that have lifted my spirit, for the countless acts of generosity, courage, and grace that I have witnessed.

We must all rally behind the mandate that the people have given. “Our duty to our City requires it. I am privileged, honored and humbled by the people’s support for my Team and myself. “We cannot thank you enough. We commit ourselves to serve you the best way possible.

“It is a way of auditing,” Villanueva said. “We do not want to disrupt the transparency server because it is still receiving data.” Logs The PPCRV would also like to see the logs of transparency server which stopped sending election results for several hours on Monday night. “We will insist on the

11

logs,” Villanueva said. “This has never happened before. That’s why I want to see the logs in order that we can avoid it ever happening again,” she added. The delay in transmission raised public concern and fuelled speculation that there might be tampering of votes. The PPCRV also asked the poll body to allow stakeholders and independent groups to document any troubleshooting of the transparency server. Villanueva said they would share their recording with the information technology community for them to further scrutinize the data. As of 2pm May 15, the transparency server shows that 84,633 out of 85,769 clustered precincts have been counted. The PPCRV, meanwhile, has received around 10 percent of physical election returns, mostly from the cities in Metro Manila. Suspend proclamation of senators For the Church’s social justice arm, the Comelec must suspend the proclamation of senators until allegations of election fraud is cleared. Caritas Philippines particularly demanded for an independent and impartial investigation into the allegations. “We are calling to suspend the proclamation of winning senatorial candidates until the allegation of fraud is resolved,” said Fr. Edwin Gariguez, Caritas executive secretary. The bold call was made after reports of possible fraud were received by Caritas due to major technical glitches involving vote counting machines and transparency servers. In 2016, only 188 VCMs were reported to malfunction nationwide. In 2019, this number increased to 400-600 VCMs. Unresolved issues Earlier, the Automated Election System (AES) Watch stated that “unless glaring vulnerabilities of the automated election system and the non-compliance of the critical provisions of RA 9369 are resolved, the 2019 elections will create credibility issues.” It said that major constraints left unresolved by Comelec and Smartmatic are the absence of public access to election data, the lack of comprehensive and credible source code review, and the lack of digital signatures. The Comelec, since September 2018, has initiated 82 enhancements of the automated machines to ensure integrity and accuracy of the 2019 mid-term elections. “However, we have seen how some of these enhancements still failed during the May 13 elections resulting to the alarming perception of election fraud,” quipped Gariguez. “Therefore, it is but imperative for the Comelec to postpone the proclamation of the winners for the senatorial race until the alleged fraudtainted results are validated and cleared,” he said.

Herbalife Nutrition posts $1.2B global net sales in Q1 2019 LOS ANGELES -- Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE: HLF) reported net sales of $1.2 billion for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. The sales included growth in four of six regions—Asia Pacific, North America, EMEA and Mexico—and was approximately flat compared to first quarter 2018. Excluding China, net sales increased 6 percent compared to the first quarter 2018. “In the first quarter of 2019, the momentum of our geographically diverse business continued with net sales growth in four of our six regions,” said Michael O. Johnson, chairman and CEO of ________

Herbalife Nutrition. “We are confident that our strategies will drive volume growth in 2019.” According to the report, the company’s volume points of 1.5 billion increased 6% compared to the prior year period 1, the highest first quarter in Company history. Excluding China, volume points increased 10% compared to the prior year period. First quarter reported diluted EPS of $0.66 and adjusted 2 earnings of $0.66 per adjusted3 diluted share, both of which were negatively impacted by expenses of approximately $0.7 million or $0.00 per diluted share and adjusted 3 diluted share,

respectively, related to the China Growth and Impact Investment Program. In mid-April, the Chinese government concluded a 100-day review of the health products industry, which led to a significant decrease in company and service provider meetings during the first quarter. Due to this recent slowdown in China, the Company is revising full year 2019 volume point guidance to a range of 0.5% - 6.5% growth, net sales guidance to a range of (1.0%) - 5.0%, as well as reported and adjusted1,3 diluted EPS guidance to a range of $2.19 - $2.64 and $2.50 – $2.95, respectively.

Excluding adjustments to volume point values in 2018, the year over year change would have been an increase of 5.6%. See Regional Volume Point Metrics below. Adjusted diluted EPS is a non-GAAP measure and, for guidance purposes, excludes the impact of: non-cash interest expense associated with the Company’s convertible notes and expenses related to regulatory inquiries. Adjusted diluted EPS for reported results purposes, excludes the impact of the foregoing as well as impacts relating to contingent value rights revaluation, insurance recoveries and China grant income. See Schedule A – “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a detailed reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income calculated in accordance with GAAP and a reconciliation of adjusted diluted EPS to diluted EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful. 3 See Schedule A - “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of adjusted diluted share count to reported diluted share count and a discussion of why the share count has been adjusted for purposes of calculating adjusted diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2019 and second and full year 2019 guidance. 1 2
