FORMER director Roy Cordova is poised to return to the board of Central Negros Electric Cooperative (Ceneco) in Bacolod City as he is running unopposed in the special election for District IV set on March 26.
Roel Venus, chief of Member-Consumer Integrated Services Division, confirmed this after another candidate Wennie Sancho was again disqualified by the Screening Committee.
"That means, Cordova is unopposed, and the special election will proceed," Venus said.
For his part, Sancho, a labor leader who sits as the workers representative in the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB)-Western Visayas, said he will file a motion for reconsideration before the Screening Committee.
He added that he is not a government employee as stated in the certification from the National Wages and Productivity Commission that he submitted.
"I am an ex-officio as labor representative to the RTWPB in Region 6. I don't have a salary because I am only receiving per diem and Rata (representation and travel allowance," Sancho said.
He also questioned the approval of the candidacy of Cordova, citing his several violations in his certificate of candidacy.
"They only concentrated on my lapses which I already addressed," Sancho added.
