PALACE STOPS SUSPENSION OF VICE MAYOR

0

A two-month preventive suspension order against a vice mayor who is a member of President Aquino’s Liberal Party was blocked by Malacañang for “lack of sufficient grounds.” The preventive suspension was ordered by the Isabela provincial board against Vice Mayor Fernando Cumigad here in November for “grave abuse of authority” in connection with his alleged refusal to return an issued government vehicle when he was the mayor of the town. It was Mayor Nestor Uy, Cumigad’s successor and political rival, who lodged the complaint. Uy reportedly asked Cumigad who allegedly refused to turnover the vehicle to the local government after the May elections.
