Oath taking for Benguet officials scheduled from June 24 – July 1
by Harley Palangchao

The oath taking rites of elected officials in Benguet has been set from June 24 to June 31 so that town officials can attend the provincial oath taking rites at the Capitol on June 29.

Atok will be the earliest to have the oath taking rites for its new set of officials led by reelected mayor Peter Alos and Vice mayor Marson Lay-at on June 24.

In La Trinidad, Edna Tabanda will take the helm as mayor together with reelected Vice mayor Romeo Salda as they take their oath on June 28.

Other towns that set their oath taking rites on the same date are Sablan, Tuba, Kibungan, Tublay, Kabayan, Kapangan, Bakun, Buguias, Itogon, and Bokod.

Mankayan officials will take oath on July 1.

From among the five Benguet mayors who ran unopposed, reelected mayor Faustino Aquisan got the most number of votes at 90 percent.

Aquisan said his constituents might have been satisfied with his leadership and managerial skills during the past six years.

During the May 13 elections, two vice mayoral candidates ran under the Liberal Party of Aquisan while he has also nine councilor candidates instead of eight in his line-up.

The other mayors who retained their seats are Mauricio Macay of Bokod, Melchor Diclas of Buguias, Roberto Canuto of Kapangan, Benito Siadto of Kibungan, Materno Luspian of Mankayan, Arthur Baldo of Sablan, Florencio Bentrez of Tuba, and Ruben Paoad of Tublay.

Aside from Tabanda, the two newcomers are mayors-elect Victorio Palangdan of Itogon and Fausto Labinio of Bakun.

At the capitol, reelected Gov. Nestor Fongwan said the June 29 oath taking rites was the consensus of the provincial board.

The winning provincial board members will have their own oath taking, which follows after an ecumenical service.

They are Johnny Waguis, Esteban Piok, Alfonso Fianza, and Ben Saguid for District 1 and Concepcion Balao, Florence Tingbaoen, Jack Dulnuan, Nardo Cayat, Robert Namoro, and Jim Botiwey for District 2.

Vice Gov. Crescensio Pacalso will turn over his seat to Board Member Nelson Dangwa.

Reelected Benguet Rep. Ronald Cosalan will also be part of the provincial oath taking rites.

Incumbent and newly elected officials led by Mayor Mauricio Domogan and congressman-elect Nicasio Aliping Jr. will discuss on Monday the schedule of the oath taking rites in Baguio.
