Rape maniac falls but commits suicide VOL. 2, No. 310
SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur--- The prime suspect who already earned the notoriety as sex maniac behind the rapeslaying of a hapless 8-year-old school girl in Barangay Bayugan 2 last January finally fell into a police dragnet after several months of going into hiding.
But tough luck for the parents of the victim who can no longer confront the suspect alive because he died in an accident after he forcibly tried to escape by jumping off from the speeding patrol car where he was being handcuffed in Bayugan 3 in Rosario town on their way to this town.

SSS coverage for workers in wellness spa, fitness gym sought A lawmaker is determined to shepherd a measure mandating the compulsory inclusion of thousands of barbers, haircutters or hairstylists, manicurists or pedicurists, make-up artists or beauty professionals, masseuse, reflexologists or therapists and gym trainers, fitness instructors or dieticians in the coverage of the Social Security System (SSS). Rep. Raymond Democrito Mendoza (Party-list, TUCP) is hopeful that the proposal, which removes the workers in wellness spas, beauty salons and fitness gyms from the category of selfemployed, will ultimately be enacted into law in the next Congress. The proposal is contained in House Bill 1558, which was authored by Mendoza. It is pending in the House Committee on Government Enterprises and Privatization. In pushing for the proposal, Mendoza noted the recent growth of wellness centers, which, more often
Metrobank Foundation donates to the Philippine Press Institute (PPI).
Mr. Aniceto ‘Chito’ Sobrepeña, president of the Metrobank Foundation Inc. (MBFI) awards the check of P70,000.00 (seventy thousand pesos) to PPI executive director Ariel Sebellino to support its ongoing outreach program for journalism and communications students. It will fund initially a half-day forum in Manila in cooperation with the Philippines Communication Society (PCS) which will be in charge of inviting students and teachers. The PPI for the last two years has started engaging the academic community to a separate activity known as the Scholastic Press Program which already brought it in the cities of Davao, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, and Cebu in partnership with its member-community newspapers for topics like journalism ethics and excellence, press freedom and civic journalism. The said amount will be modestly spread across other areas that will be covered this year such as Bacolod and Bulacan.
than not, are an amalgamation of beauty and grooming salons, fitness gyms, spas and massage parlors and other interrelated services. “The industry is the bread and butter of thousands of workers in wellness spas, beauty salons and fitness gyms. Most of these are ‘experts’ in their individual fields who have undergone professional training. However, in most instances, the services of these persons are merely outsourced by the wellness centers. They are not employed but are treated as independent contractors,” Mendoza said. Mendoza said these workers lease the facilities of the centers and bring their own set of clients. Their compensation or payment is based on a per head basis and they earn a commission or share in the payments due their clients. He added that they are not required to observe office hours or report to the company every day. They are not devoting their time exclusively for one company and are free to work on any other wellness facility, or
engage in any other employment. “One of the predicaments of these workers is their membership in the SSS. With the above-mentioned arrangement, they are considered as self-employed. Thus, they pay their entire SSS membership dues and there is no one to pay the heftier employer counterpart,” Mendoza said. According to Mendoza, the vision of the measure is to compel owners of the wellness center, barbershop, salon, spa, massage parlor, fitness gym or any other similar entity to which they are affiliated or regularly report to render their services which are considered as their employer to deduct and withhold from the concerned person’s average monthly commissions, earnings, compensation or payment, his/her employee’s contribution, as well as pay for and remit the counterpart employer’s contribution. “By doing this, these persons would be able to continue being an active SSS member and reap the
benefits, while still working or upon their retirement,” Mendoza stressed. The measure amends Section 9-A of Republic Act 1161, as amended, otherwise known as the “Social Security Law,” by compulsory including, irrespective of the contractual arrangement of their nonrecognition as employees, or of the kind or source of the commissions, earnings, compensation or payment for their services, barbers, haircutters or hairstylists; manicurists or pedicurists; make-up artists; masseuse, reflexologists or therapists and gym trainers, fitness instructors or dieticians, and shall not be considered under the category of selfemployed. “The State affirms labor as a primary social economic force. It shall protect the rights of workers and promote their welfare. The social security of workers in the wellness centers, beauty and grooming salons, fitness gyms, spas and massage parlors, and other interrelated services should always be protected and promoted,” Mendoza said.

Rape maniac falls but commits suicide By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN
SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur--- The prime suspect who already earned the notoriety as sex maniac behind the rape-slaying of a hapless 8-year-old school girl in Barangay Bayugan 2 last January finally fell into a police dragnet after several months of going
into hiding. But tough luck for the parents of the victim who can no longer confront the suspect alive because he died in an accident after he forcibly tried to escape by jumping off from the speeding patrol car where he was being handcuffed in Bayugan 3 in Rosario town on their way to this town.
Chief Inspector Ephraim Detuya, local police chief, admitted they only released the information exclusively to this writer even as the incident took place last week to bide their time from possible repercussion from some quarters that would put them in a bad light of human rights violations. The suspect, Lucas Galas
Jr., was captured after a 24hour track down operation in Barangay San Miguel, Compostela town in Compostela Valley. Detuya believed the suspect intentionally committed the suicide to make good to his previous threat to his neighbours in Bayugan 2 before he had gone into hiding that he would not
allow himself to be captured alive and face angry residents who have been cursing him for the rape not only with the 8-year-old girl but to another girl last year whose decomposing body was discovered after a long search. Galas was said to have also tried to go after a third high school student in Barangay
Tagbayagan in Rosario town but failed to sexually assault her. Residents claimed it was Galas who repeatedly raped the victim and the other crime suspect, Roque Eliot already incarcerated in jail, was just a look out. The victim’s body was found naked underneath the bridge just near Bayugan II Elem. School.
ARMM’s Hataman vows to lower poverty incidence to “single-digit during our term” By Carolyn O. Arguillas
COTABATO CITY (MindaNews)- OIC Governor Mujiv Hataman of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), recently proclaimed winner in the ARMM gubernatorial race, has vowed to lower the double-digit poverty incidence in the country’s poorest region, to “single-
digit during our term.” Among 17 regions nationwide, the five-province, two-city ARMM is the country’s poorest, posting 46.9% according to the National Statistical Coordination Board’s “First Semester Per Capita Threshold and Poverty incidence Among Families, by region and provinces, 2006, 2009 and 2012” released on April 23
this year. ARMM comprises Lanao del Sur and Maguindanao in the mainland, the island provinces of Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-tawi and the cities of Marawi and Lamitan. Nationwide, the NSCB said, “22 out of 100 families were estimated to be poor in the first semester of 2012 with the average poverty incidence at 22.3%. In the
ARMM, the figure is more than twice at 46.9% or 47 out of 100 families. In Lanao del Sur, the figure is thrice the national average at 68.9% and Maguindanao at 57.8%. Basilan’s poverty incidence is at 32.5%, Sulu’s is 30.4% while Tawi-tawi’s is 20.8%. “Actually, we are the poorest because of the two provinces but not the en-
tire region,” Hataman told MindaNews shortly after the flag retreat late Friday afternoon at the ARMM’s main office. Proclaimed earlier that day as winner in the ARMM gubernatorial race along with his running mate Haround Alrashid Lucman, Hataman attended the flag retreat, a weekly activity he enforced in the ARMM.
Friday’s retreat ended with a raffle of, among others, cooking pots, rice cookers, rice dispensers, sacks of rice and brown envelopes containing cash. He said the three island provinces are no longer on the list of poorest provinces and only the two mainland provinces are their problem. “Challenge ito sa amin” hataman | page 11

GSIS cancels policy on suspension of members
tate pension fund Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) today announced that beginning July 2013, government employees working in agencies who are delayed or deficient in their premium payments will not have their loan privileges suspended anymore. The new policy also provides remedial guidelines for agencies already suspended so that their employees’ GSIS privileges can be restored. On April 25, the GSIS Board approved a new policy which addressed agencies’ non-remittance of premium contributions, without resorting to the suspension of the loan privileges of its employees. “It’s wrong that these employees lose their access to GSIS loan windows and dividends when their social insurance contributions are mandatorily deducted from their salaries,” said President and General Manager Robert Vergara. “This is a welcome development because public school teachers heavily depend on GSIS loans to pay for the schooling of their children. We are so glad that the new GSIS Board is implementing reforms in their policies to help small earners among government employees make both ends meet,” Benjie Valbuena, president of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) and Manila Public School Teachers’ Association (MPSTA) said upon hearing the news. Similarly, Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC) chairperson Benjo Basas commended the new GSIS management for hearing out its members’ plea to spare them from the iniquities of their employers. “Maraming salamat sa dramatic improvement sa pagtrato sa aming mga miyembro. Nakikinig na ang GSIS ngayon sa aming mga miyembro at kinukunsidera na ang aming opinion. Sana ay magpatuloy pa ito,” Basas exclaimed. Section 6 of Republic Act 8291 or the GSIS Act of 1997 provides that “…the employer shall deduct each month from the monthly salary or compensation of each employee the contribution payable by him …”. Suspended agencies may choose any of three options to restore their regular status. They may pay their premium delinquencies in full; or restructure their arrearages and commit to settling these through a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with GSIS; or upon payment of at least 90% of any three consecutive months’ premium obligations beginning July 2013, sign an undertaking to enter into a MOA with
GSIS for the settlement of its premium deficiencies. To date, more than 200 agencies have concluded similar agreements with the pension fund -- restoring the full benefits of over 800,000 employees, including the Department of Education. PGM Vergara explained that unless the suspended agency pays its arrears in full or honors its obligation to pay under the terms of the agreement, retirement benefits of employees will be based on periods with paid premiums. However, GSIS will still consider the total length of service in determining the eligibility of members to retirement, or a minimum of 15 years. Meanwhile, delinquent agencies defined as those who fail to remit at least 90% of the mandatory premium contributions for a due month (10th day of the following month) or comply with the terms of their agreement, will receive the appropriate demand letter and a subsequent notice of default from GSIS should
the amounts remain unpaid. (-more-) These notices will remind agencies that GSIS has not received the prescribed amount for the due month and continued non-payment will reduce their employees' entitlements adversely impacting their loanable amounts and retirement benefits. GSIS will also coordinate with Agency Authorized Officers and heads of employees’ union and personnel office to inform them on the failure of their agencies to remit the required payments. “We enlist our members’ cooperation to ensure that the mandatory premium obligations and other amounts due the pension fund are remitted to the System to guarantee they receive the correct level of benefits.” This latest policy forms part of the continuing efforts of the Board and Management to provide a more member-focused and responsive service to its more than 1.4 million active members.

NOW, everybody is preparing for the barangay elections sometime in October. After the arduous ordeal of the local elections in the senatorial and local government units, the barangay elections come in sight. We have the feeling that the administration would employ everything to gain control of the barangays in the country. Again, this is in preparation for the 2016 presidential elections. Cris Diaz The ruling political party made the result of the gubernatorial and the mayoral elections as a basis to start courting the barangay leaders to their fold. The Liberal Party believes that controlling the mayors and governors would scale down to controlling the barangays too. President Aquino has done his part as the only campaigning President of the country. Undeniably, Aquino has been the main campaigner of the Liberal Party in the just concluded midterm elections. Apart from making sure that the Liberal Party would gain control of the Senate, Aquino also worked to neutralize local political leaders he believed are obstacles of his administration. However, there were many reports that state-sponsored candidates won amid suspicion of election fraud. No matter what the electors might say, the crux of the matter is that Aquino succeeded in his plan to dislodge
candidates inimical to his 2016 plans. Aquino, therefore, has now instructed his governors and mayors to take care of the barangay elections. He wants to make sure that barangay leaders should conform to the administration to assure victory in the coming presidential elections three years from now. Following this line of thoughts, it is expected that half, if not all, potential candidates in the barangay level would change color before the month of October. Incumbent barangay leaders would definitely be the first to align with the Liberal Party. Governors and Mayors under the Liberal Party would start wooing barangay leaders starting July. Actually, newly elected city mayors and provincial governors aligned with the administration have already started courting barangay leaders to join the Liberal Party this early. Nobody could blame these mayors and governors. The President has instructed them to carry out the task. After all, the President has already accomplished his mission. Naturally, barangay leaders who would want to cling to their current post would have no recourse but to join the Liberal Party. Nevertheless, despite all the “sweet talks and promises,” there are still barangay leaders who believed in “principled politics.” In other words, there still are barangay leaders who are steadfast and have minds of their own.

“Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.” – Anonymous With the growing complexity and multiple stresses of our modern world, a lot of people can simply allow having their personal lives deteriorate into a state of disarray. If the members of a body are ailing, they easily account for an ailing being and this could make up an ailing society. By the law of correspondence, what you are on the outside is indeed a mirror image of what you are on the inside. It is extremely difficult to change other people. We cannot change others for our sphere of control is strictly limited entirely within our own selves. It’s ourselves that we can seek to change for the better. The best that we can do is to be a model of influence to help others change by and for themselves. In the words of Jim Rohn, “Character isn’t something you were born
The financial doctor Dr. Adonis Agcopra with and can’t change like your fingerprints; it’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility for forming.” Character determines our attitude. The great Mahatma Gandhi echoed: “Be the change you want to see in this world!” Our locus of control in life comes either from an external or an internal source. When we let outside circumstances determine our mood and disposition for the day, then we let external forces control the direction of our lives. But if we seek to gain control of our inner selves and our attitude, then we can choose to be tranquil
and happy each and every moment that we consciously choose to be. In this world, we have individual freedom. It’s the way we responsibly use that freedom that determines what we become in our lifetimes. Each person has the right to determine his own path, but each one should do so responsibly knowing that by the law of cause and effect, the consequences of one’s choices will matter greatly and would be something that we have to inevitably live with. Our choices in life are the causes, the persons that we become is the long-term effect.
Similarly, your inner attitude towards money will determine your outside financial world. By the law of attraction, money is attracted to good stewards. As a great guru once said, if you seek to learn how to take good care of money, practice how to use and spend it wisely, and share the basic tenets governing its acquisition and redistribution, then you will attract more money into your life. Let’s constantly make the choice of becoming tranquil, happy and financially responsible individuals from the inside and it will all come out in the glow of our faces, the texture of our voices, and the good health of our finances! Let’s all choose to wake up each day with a smile sowing seeds of peace and happiness, and the whole world will be smiling back at us. Let’s do it now! ----agcopra | page 11

Special Gospel of the day: Jo h n 1 7 : 2 0 - 2 6 ( May 2 2 , 2013-Wednesday) John 17:20-26-Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: Jesus Christ prayed for the “unity of the people” because this is the “original plan of God” that after this life, we will live in “eternal life.” 1 Timothy 2:4-Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. Luke 5:32-I came not to call the righteous, but “sinners to repentance.” It is very clear that the “mission of Jesus” here on earth when he was born like

Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas us was “to find the lost sheep.” In our gospel for today, Jesus asked the Father to “gather His people” in order to save them from evils. In Mathew 6:9-12-Jesus taught us the prayer which is our father and in that prayer, it is emphasized that we must “be protected from evil spirits who are our enemies.” Ephesians 6:12-For we wrestle “not against flesh and blood,” but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against “spiritual wickedness” in high [places]. Take note, devils desire “to divide and separate us from the presence of God” because He wants all of us will be “lost in eternal fire.” The truth is, Jesus wants us “to be united to our Almighty Father” by cooperating to His will. Philippians 2:12-Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed,
not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, “work out your own salvation” with fear and trembling. What have you done for your salvation? There are many times that “we neglect the ultimate plans of God” for our salvation because we “never mind of our individual soul.” Matthew 6:33-But “seek first the kingdom of God,” and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you:SPONSORED:Neneth Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO.

Magnanimous in victory, honor in accepting defeat Cagayan de Oro Mayorelect Oscar Moreno’s first words after he was proclaimed winner last May 14 was to start the healing process. This is definitely a breath of fresh air. The first word of Moreno is so unlike the fallen mayor who is known for his vindictiveness and political retribution every after elections. He does not mind spending taxpayers money assigning senior City Hall employees in floating status or in the basurahan just to send the message he wants total and blind loyalty from all.
I can now imagine the feeling liberation of my City Hall friends Dionie Gersana and Edwin Dael who endured years of persecution for expressing their dislike to the ways of the fallen mayor. There are many other professionals in the City Hall who have suffered in silence who can now heave a sigh of relief. The mandate given by the Kagayanons to Moreno in the May 13 vote was strong. It was not a landslide victory but the 17,000 votes margin was not a close call as many, including me, had projected days before the vote. This lead is similar to
Bencyrus G. Ellorin the mandate given by the people of the 2nd district to Rep. Rufus Rodriguez in 2007 against outgoing 1st district Rep. Benjo Benaldo. Benaldo must have bore the full weight of that mandate, he decided to transfer residence to the 1st district where he won
and became congressman in 2010. Although Team Oca’s victory was not complete, with Ed Cabanlas losing to Ian Acenes in the vice mayoral race, and only five of his City Council slate making it to the 16-member local legislative body, I think all
them came out winners. Having Roger Abaday, Zaldy Ocon and Bong Lao back in the City Council is a welcome development. Add to that Candy Darimbang and former Gusa barangay chief Enrico Salcedo, Team Oca definitely has that power punch to the City Council. Team Oca’s candidacy was an uphill campaign from day one. I think credit should be given to Team Oca members, more notably Ed Cabanlas and the city council slate for focusing team synergy to their standard bearer. They may not have won majority in the City Council, but they are
all winners. The members of team violet who survived the May 13 onslaught, I think is not cause of major worry. Years of docility to the fallen mayor who made them his rubber stamp have clouded the full political potentials. Even Acenas who has survived two strong and very competent opponents, Ocon in 2010 and Cabanlas, has still to prove himself as his own man. His political career has so far been lackluster because of the shadow of the fallen mayor. If he performs well as his own man, his potenellorin | page 11

Pacers’ George Hill cleared to play Game 6 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Indiana Pacers guard George Hill has been cleared to play Saturday night against the New York Knicks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series. Hill missed Game 5 on Thursday night in New York because of a concussion. The Pacers released a statement about 1 1/2 hours before the scheduled tipoff saying Hill passed the NBA’s return protocol as part of the league’s concussion policy. The Pacers said Hill remained symptom-free
after each step, including workouts and the shootaround Saturday. Hill scored 26 points Tuesday night in Game 4 after a first-quarter collision with Knicks center Tyson Chandler. Two days later, after the team’s shootaround, Hill was still complaining of headaches. Team doctors then diagnosed him with a concussion, forcing him to sit out Game 5. His replacement, D.J. Augustin, played nearly 39 minutes and had no assists as the Pacers lost 85-75, cutting their series lead to 3-2.

nority Hataman is the first elected ARMM governor coming from a minor ethnic group, the Yakan of Basilan. His mother is from Pata, Sulu. He is the seventh elected governor of the 23-year old ARMM which has had two Maguindanaon governors: Zacaria Candao (19901993) and Zaldy Ampatuan (2005-until his detention on December 5, 2009 for his alleged involvement in the November 23, 2009 massacre of 58 persons in Ampatuan, Maguindanao); one Maranao. Liningding Pangandaman (1993-1996) and two Taosugs: Nur Misuari (1996 -2001) and Dr. Parouk Hussin (2002 -2005). In the seven elections held in the ARMM, the May 13 election was the first synchronized with national mid-term and local elections. In his Proclamation statement, Hataman said, “the voice of the great majority in ARMM has been heard through a clean and credible election, which was uncertain if not entirely improbable in the past.” “The seeds of reforms have started to take roots during our incumbency as caretakers. Help us nurture these seeds so that their vines and fruits reach even the farthest island and remotest village in the region,” he said. The three-year term of office of the elected ARMM officials will be cut short when the Bangsamoro Basic Law is ratified. After the ratification, the ARMM is deemed abolished and the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) takes over in preparation for the first election of leaders of the Bangsamoro, the new autonomous political entity that will relace the ARMM. Hataman said they “remain firm in our pledge and would step aside to make way…for a new political set-up meant to take the Bangsamoro to greater heights.” ARMM or Bangsamoro Hataman is optimistic that despite the delays, the target date of 2015 for the BTA to take over from the ARMM would be met.
He also said he does not see a diminution in the area of governance of the Bangsamoro. In mixed English and Pilipino, Hataman said he believes the core area of the ARMM would be retained and may even be expanded. “It’s simple. It really depends on the law. Either new Bangsamoro entity or back to ARMM,” he said. “In the plebiscite, you ratify. If the new law is defeated, you go back to the old law. But I am optimistic that the Bangsamoro (law) will win,” he explained. Transition governance President Aquino named Hataman, a former Anak Mindanaw party-list representative, as OIC Governor in late December 2011. Aquino referred to him as the “ghostbuster of the ARMM” but Hataman said he’s done with “ghostbusting” and will now focus on the economy. He said he hopes the President would see him now as “generally reformist, not just ghostbusting, that ARMM is reformed, developed and poverty is addressed.” He said good governance should not just be done at the regional level but down at the barangay level. Hataman said he would also see to the “smooth transition” toward the Bangsamoro by focusing also on capacitation of the present bureaucracy, how to strengthen it to achieve a smooth transition so that even if ARMM is abolished, the human resources could be used by the new political entity, except the heads of offices. Even if the Transition Commission is independent and separate entity, Hataman said he would coordinate with them to capacitate human resources for the future Bangsamoro. Hataman says he will “open talks with MILF and other BDA (Bangsamoro D e velopment Agenc y) agencies, even with OPAPP (Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process) for those who have potentials to go on OJT (on the job training). “Personally, I want the
Bangsamoaro entity to be successful, whoever they will put there. At least they know the dynamics of governance because even if you are good, if you do not know the dynamics, the culture in government, it would be difficult.” (Carolyn O. Arguillas/MindaNews)

are relying much on the sincerity and the capability of the government to implement the (peace) process.” Murad also said the MILF will start building a political party “within this year” in preparation for the 2016 elections when the first set of officials of the Bangsamoro is expected to be elected. “Within this year, we will start already (setting up the political party).” Murad said in mixed English and Pilipino.

MindaNews photo by Toto Lozano MILF chair Al Haj Murad Ebrahim at the MILF Peace Panel’s office in Camp Darapanan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao on May 17. MindaNews photo by Toto Lozano Murad said they will form a political party because “we want to maintain the status of the MILF as an Islamic organization and the political party will be the arm of the MILF for the political process.” Murad said they have yet to name the party but it will definitely contain the word “Bangsamoro.” The Philippine government (GPH) and MILF peace panels signed on October 15 last year the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro (FAB). After the elections, they are supposed to complete the annexes on Wealthsharing, Power-sharing and Normalization, to complete the comprehensive peace pact for the establishment of the Bangsamoro, the new autonomous political entity that would replace the 23-year old Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). The FAB also provides for the creation of a Transition Commission that would draft the Bangsamoro Basic Law. When the Basic Law is done, it will be submitted to Congress with the President certifying it as urgent and once passed by Congress will
be submitted to a plebiscite in the core areas comprising the five-province, twocity Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, the six towns in Lanao del Norte (Baloi, Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan and Tangkal) and the barangays in the towns of Kabacan, Carmen, Aleosan, Pigcawayan, Pikit and Midsayap that voted for inclusion in the 2001 plebiscite; the cities of Cotabato and Isabela in Basilan and all other contiguous areas where there is a resolution of the local government unit or there is a petition of at least ten per cent of the qualified voters in their area. The future “Bangsamoro” will, as agreed upon by the GPH-MILF, have a ministerial form of government. Murad acknowledged that in last week’s election, “nag dominate pa rin ang 3Gs (guns, goons, gold). But he said he is confident that in the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law, “we can at least gradually change the system because unless you change the system, we do not see a future for the electoral process because we observed that the 3Gs still dominate.” The MILF is going to face two electoral processes between now and 2016: the plebiscite for the ratification of the Bangsamoro Basic Law and the election of the first set of officials of the “Bangsamoro” political entity in the May 2016 elections. This year’s polls served as a preview to the plebiscite and the May 2016 polls with many MILF members voting for the first time. The MILF was perceived as supporting the candidacy of Tucao Mastura for governor of Maguindanao. Mastura lost to reelectionist Esmael Mangudadatu. His defeat raised doubts about an “MILF vote.” Murad explained that “not all the MILF supported Tucao Mastura. There are those who voted also for the other side. We did not endorse any candidate so members were free to choose who they would vote for, who can help in the peace process. Not all voted because there are those who
are not registered voters.” While not citing figures, Murad acknowledged “marami” (many) registered in the general re-registration in the ARMM last year. “In preparation for this year’s election?” MindaNews asked. “Actually it’s not for this election. The preparation is actually for the plebiscite. We encouraged them to register in preparation for the plebiscite,” Murad said. Murad is pleased that the peace process was carried as an election issue by candidates from both the administration and the opposition. He said judging from the statements of Mangudadatu before the election, “he has been expressing his support to the Framework Agreement.” “Actually, even during the campaign period he was also very, very supportive … of the Framework Agreement. In fact, he also thanked the MILF pronounce(ment) of neutrality (in) the election.” He expressed confidence that the Bangsamoro Basic Law that would be crafted by the Transition Commission would pass smoothly in Congress. “Well that is our expectation but you know the politics in the Philippines …But we are really banking on the statement of the elected officials expressing their support to the Framework Agreement and also the President’s.”

(This is a challenge to us), he said. He said he tasked his economic staff to study the situation so they would know how best to address the problem. “Target namin ibababa ito to single-digit during our term.” Lanao del Sur and Maguindanao, he said, have huge agricultural potentials but the former is more into trading while economic activity in the latter is “nakasentro sa political leaders.” In the island provinces like Hataman’s Basilan, food is easily accessible and cheap, he said. 7th elected Gov, 1st mi-

a strong leader will surely emerge. Only that his competence may be a little suspect. Moreno has surpassed many challenges in his political life. Note that in late 2010, PaDayon stole the majority of the Misamis Oriental Provincial Board. PaDayon PB members even cut the budget of the Office of the Governor by more than half in 2011. Oca issued line vetoes on the 2011 budget and with Vice Gov. Norris Babiera, they steered Capitol smoothly. It would be interesting to look where are some of the most ferocious attack dogs of PaDayon in that 2010 Provincial Board coup – namely Jesus Jardin and Deodeguil Ursal? One miserably lost his congressional bid in the 2nd district of Mis. Or., and the other spending the rest of his life inside four walls. And knowing the political timber of the team violet survivors, I would not be surprised that in no time, Moreno consolidates his political hold in the city with a majority City Council. The challenge for the citizenry now is to form a unified strategy of engagement with the new City Hall administration. The least we can ask from Mayor-elect Moreno is to province that space where ordinary citizens can contribute their 5 cents worth in local governance.
