Governor Singson wants 2007 polls to push through

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Vigan City (26 October) -- Ilocos Sur Governor Luis Chavit Singson has preferred the holding of the 2007 national and local election as it was mandated by laws.

According to Singson, the conduct of polls was the best way to strengthen the country's governance considering that through election process all undesirable political officials from the national government down to the local government units will be removed.

"If the 2007 election will be held, we have a better outlook in the government as we had chosen the appropriate officials for any vacant political positions," Singson told.

"These newly elected officials will probably help in the implementation of the agenda of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, in which these agenda will redound for the socio-economic upliftment of the Filipinos," he added.

Earlier, Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye has assured to the public that the 2007 election will be push through.

"Based on existing law, we have elections scheduled for May 2007," Bunye said.

He clarified that the Palace did not share from the personal opinion of President Arroyo's election lawyer Romulo Macalintal, who said the lack of time to conduct the bidding for the supply of automated vote counting machines for next year's elections would lead to the cancellation of the polls.

"That is his (Macalintal's) view and we don't necessarily share his opinion because we are basing everything on what is in the law," Bunye said. (PIA Ilocos) [top]
