Federal gov't by 2022
targeted, Zubiri says
BY CARLA GOMEZ

Senator-elect Juan Miguel Zubiri yesterday said the target under the Rodrigo Duterte administration is for a federal form of government to be implemented in the Philippines by 2022, that will boost development of the countryside.

There are suggestions that the election of delegates to a Constitutional Convention to tackle the shift to a federal form of government be held together with the barangay elections in October, said Zubiri, at a press conference in Bacolod City.

The ratification of the ConCon's proposal for a federal form of government is targeted to be held during the 2019 general elections and implemented by 2022, Zubiri said.

NORSU asking for P1.8M
in scholarship arrears
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Negros Oriental State University main campus in Dumaguete City and its campuses in Bais City and Mabinay are demanding payment for the unpaid balances of the scholarship program of an outgoing board member, worth P1.8 million.

Bais City campus administrator Recto Saga Reyes said the university is in a quandary as to where to collect the unpaid balances because, according to Gov. Roel Degamo, it was Board Member Melliemoore Saycon who has been signing the endorsements and apparently signing the contracts with his scholars numbering about 300, with almost 200 in the Bais City campus and more than 100 in the Mabinay campus, without the knowledge of the governor. moremoremore
