PIA Press Release

No to partisan activities, gov't employees told

by Mark Gellor

Panabo City (9 February) -- In line with the coming local and national elections in 2010, City Administrator, Nemesio L. Rasgo, Jr. reminds all co-employees in the city hall holding plantilla positions to refrain from directly or indirectly engaging in any partisan political activities during the convocation on Feb. 1, 2010 at the New City Hall.

The said reminder is based on Civil Service Commission Memorandum Circular No. 40 series 1998, clarifying the definition of the phrase "partisan political activity" and enumerating the acts considered as such.

"The services of the city must continue and must be delivered to the barangay folks. Kinahanglan dili ma apektohan and serbisyo sa syudad tungod nangsinabot na ang pinili-ay," Rasgo said.

He added that if it is unavoidable to support a candidate, and you're holding a plantilla position, then the only option is to resign from your position.

As early as 1998, the CSC has already issued a memorandum circular defining "partisan political activity" as an act designed to promote the election or defeat of particular candidates to a public office.

These include specific activities done for or against any candidates, such as forming groups for the purpose of soliciting votes, holding political meetings or rallies, making speeches or holding interviews, publishing or distributing campaign materials, and directly or indirectly soliciting votes.
