Bishop urges prayers,
action vs. death penalty
San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza yesterday issued a call for prayer and collective mass action against the restoration of the death penalty in the Philippines.
“Thou shall not kill is as valid for the guilty as for the innocent. In resisting the threat of the restoration of the death penalty, we cannot be disunited or indifferent. On this pro-life issue let us truly unite. Come out and make a stand,” he said.
The Regional Trial Court Branch 42 dismissed the petition for recount filed by Richard Calulut, et al, as well as the petition-in-intervention filed by former councilors Homer Bais and Alex Paglumotan, et al against the Board of Canvassers of Bacolod City.
The class suit was filed by Calulut, et al against Majarucon-Sia, LelanieLoryBojos and Gerald John Joven of the Board of Canvassers and City Treasurer Giovanni Balalilhi.
Losing Pamilya MKK candidates for councilor also filed a motion for intervention before the Regional Trial Court Branch 42 joining other petitioners in seeking a manual count or audit of the ballots cast in the May 9 elections.

Jessica Wu, focal person of Climate Reality PH, admitted “we do have a big problem on base load power but you need a 24/7 (solar) power plant to power a community or an area”.
