News: Surigao Execs to Block Dinagat’s Provincehood

SURIGAO CITY - Provincial officials led by Surigao del Norte Vice Gov. Rodolfo Navarro and a group of lawyers are set to file before the Supreme Court a motion blocking the move to make Dinagat Island a separate province.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) passed a resolution last Nov. 7 setting the date for the conduct of a plebiscite to determine whether voters in Dinagat and other affected areas will approve the creation of the new province. More...

If Dinagat Island wont make it, Siargao Island will do once their congressional candidate wins. and DAPA will be the capital of Siargao and Dinagat. Take note siguradong makapasa na sa requirements kay morethan 200,000 na ang combined populations ng Siargao and Dinagat. This time ang taga Libjo, Loreto, San Jose, Dinagat, Basilisa, Tugajon and Cagdianao will be going to Dapa frequently. Di lang kasi sila makaporma kay si Ecleo pa ang congresswoman, Take note also that Siargao island is a sub province na even before, so di na malisod magapply as a province. If ever magapply nan pagkaprovince an siargao island jointly w/ Dinagat, The best name should be Surigao Islands Province. Wow kagana gajud....

Surigao Islands Province....much better...than dinagat alone....

Its better to have this 2 islands in one province (Surigao Islands Province) And to get this things done, the capitalship should be split in Dapa and in San Jose, or have all the offices in each sub capital. If the Governor is from siargao then he will stay in Dapa, If teh governor is from dinagat, then he will hold office in Dinagat. The only problem in here is the elctions, Im sure, its gonna be a WAR between the 2 islands....

i think it's not allowed in the local government code to have two capitals for a single province. i just wonder why congressmen did not notice the legal defects in the bill passed by congresswoman ecleo. good thing we had the local executives and others concerned with it..... personally, am not in favor of dinagat as a province considering several factors (as i observed). however, i am open to the idea in the first comment but i believe ecleos wont give way. there's so much politics involved.

Why is it church is always involve in government proceedings? Is there really a separation of state and church? What i understood was a government should operate by its own. It has its Laws, rules and regulations to follow. I know originally laws and rules was taken started based on religion which was written from the bible. But it has now no connection and should be separated. Why is it religion is always in politics? Is it because In our case corruption in the goverment could not be controled and laws has lots of loopholes? Say... maybe government could not afford to implement its own laws. Maybe that is the reason why religion kicks in? If you are not making good in this life judgement will happen after life. Something like a Next stage..

But can we make decision ourselves? Religion should not endorse political position. Now think the otherway.. what will be the result in Catholic church view if Dinagat is separated? Collections and political control? Religious People Power?

Anonymous said...

In mainland big politician view, separating Dinagat is good for the future. Dinagat is a political problematic area of the Surigao del Norte province. They should vote and recommend "YES". Also with Siargao Island. Of course it is anticipated a "YES" vote from PBMA members. Only Lumad (native islander) is expected to vote "NO" since crimes is long seen to be worst.

Its ironic that the church enter politics in a big bold move again, My questions are, Does the diocese of Surigao specially the dinagat parishes help the Dinagatnons improving their lives, improving living conditions? I think Its a BIG NO! So whats their bases of their campaign? Crimes? corruptions? actually, those things happeneds also in other places that has a traditional politicians, etc. This things are all common in everywhere. Well, making DI a province might transform Dinagat Islands to prosperity. Rejecting it will makes Dinagat as is, still Lags to its counterpart island and mainland towns, So poor, no 24 electricy, dilapidated roads, wooden bridges poor water supplies, etc. DI PEOPLE THINK OF IT!!! CHANGES OR AS IS!!!

the church has, as always, practice double standard in most political issues. now that there's a treat from a certain group to control a province to be, they make moves to oppose the movement. they vocally campaigned against it. the question: what did the church do when traditional politicians control towns for decades? they should have supported or endorsed people during elections that they believed honest, sincere, without immorality issues and qualified. years past, they're always silent. they allowed to have these poor towns the milking cow of corrupt officials. this is because the church have some interests too.
the issue of separation of church and state is just in the books. in reality there's no wall that separated the two. the church will always engage in political issues. one is the coming plebicite. during elections also politicians ask for endorsement from churches. politicians want the church to be involved during elections so there's no reason the church will not mingle in political issues.

i think we have a good discussion here. as of now, i can share only an article written by Fr. Bernas, a noted constitutionalist. kindly go over the article.. i might come with my personal opinion on the said matter.

I think population is not a problem in making Dinagat a province, Biliran province is less than 160,000 and yet its still became a province. For me, making dinagat a province is a challenge and full of potentials. If its the criminality are the problems that our church is seeing, then, they deprived the islands development, For how many years our church in this islands? and can you count the improvements? If they feared that the politics will worsen the crime once this become a province? and whats the crime rate of Dinagat island? I think its all exagerations, Compare Dinagat/Surigao to Sulo and Lanao? becoming a province is not the end of the faithful/church of this island as what they feared, Remember we still have Laws to follow. I dont know why the church blocks this proceedings, They still can do more once it become a province. For me I would vote YES for CHANGE!!!!!My GOD this island has been LONG neglected by our LOCAL and NATIONAL OFFICIALS. Its time to move ON and FACE the challenge, Crime can be minimize by the people itself if theyr vigilants.....and the church has the duty and its their absolute DUTIES to curve immorality and crimes....by spreading, preaching and teaching christian Values..

raymond said...

I think you should not attack the church in its move against becoming dinagat as a province. at the outset, the question here is legal in nature. why not face first the legal question as to issues raised? it seems everybody is mumbling against the church yet they dont care with the legal infirmities which i believe has the highest potential to stop dinagat's provincehood. the church actions reflect their stand. if you dont like it, criticize them and campaign what you believe is right. dude, that's a vibrant indication of democracy! i suppose everybody read the article i shared earlier.

raymond said...

i dont understand why dinagat is a "political problematic area of surigao del norte" (i am referring to previous post by anonymous). as i see it, there have been two major political players which he/she refers to PBMA and lumad. am i right? can we discuss more about these things with due cnsideration of factors we deemed necessary? thanks and regards... (i think its better for us to know each other, after all we all came from dinagat and we are concerned with the situation)

Anonymous said...

the real issue is who is going to control the dinagat province? the pbma leadership or the lumad? the pbma have already the advantage. nobody can deny it. can they make the new province progressive? i don't think so. we have a governor before who was from that group and at present a congresswoman. do they have big projects in libjo? a congresswoman has millions in pork barrel. asa may dako nga project niya sa libjo. from her pork barrel. high schools in the barangays? yes she was the author but the budget is from the national government. including the highway. it's not from her pork. did she equally distribute her projects in the 7 municipalities? NO.
now the lumads. what did the lumads do for the improvement of libjo in the case of the mayor? to the island of dinagat in case of the governor? are you satisfied with their performance? i'm not. libjo once to be the best in dinagat. we have the first to have electricity & hospital. what now?
how many times in a year the present governor visit our town? did he also equally distribute his projects to the towns?
it seems there are no good choices for me. if you chose for lesser evil, he/she is still evil. better not to vote because it's the only way your not giving approval for any evil party to dominate dinagat.
i'm a lumad but i'm no longer satisfied the way lumad executives run our town or province. if THEY only act as good managers this treat is just SISIW because lumad is still the majority. but the people know what they are doing.
DON'T VOTE! if people will tell you "dili ka kareklamo kay wa ka mobotar" don't mind them. as long as you pay taxes you have the right to complain.

Anonymous said...

I'll vote for "Yes" to keep the hospital in Libjo from not closing. And to avoid dislocation of hospital personnel.

Anonymous said...

voting YES is not an assurance that the hopital will not be closed. same as voting NO. we don't know what will happen in either of the two winning the plebecite. the problem in the hospital started when the local government code authored by Pimentel became a law. instead of the national government funding the hospital it was turned over to the local government. meaning our governor and mayor has the big responsibility of keeping our hospital functional. what happen, even with a smaller budget, they still play corruption. buying overpriced medicines from people close to them. in return naay bahin. the solution for the problem is amending the law not the YES or NO vote. again i urge you dinagatnons not to vote. think about your conscience.

Pork Barrels can now be transparrent once their is only 1 district in a province. Provincial officials can concentrate also in one place, the island itself. Before we had 2 Governors already coming from Dinagat, but ang ila giuna are those towns in mainland and other island to get their hearts and vote for the next election. Now kung maprovince na ang Dinagat, gamay lang nga lugar, Siguro They have all the time. money, etcetera to make this island a MODERN and BUSTLING Province. Who knows, The challenge and Potentials are there; I'll vote YES. Voting NO? will make Dinagat AS IS... Makaluluoy and the less Developed in Surigao del Norte.

yes na kayong lahat

Anonymous said...

who knows? nobody knows. that's the thruth. how could the pork barrel be transparent when COA cannot audit it? if they are honest then they should not wait for the provincehood so they will spend it the way it should.
if "YES" will win, they will not change for reasons that they already used to it and assured that they will control the province because they have followers who don't mind important issues but just follow anything their leadership want them to do.
if you vote NO? same old thing. govs from siargao and mainland were not doing our dinagatnon govs did. they did not spent money for projects to win votes. they only asked few people: the mayors and pbma leadership. and winning is sure as 101%.
again i'll asked you to boycott the plebecite.

well why we need to debate such things, the creation of our island into province in fact we're already qualify to do as such since we have been accomplished all the respective requirements that are needed in a particular place whom is devotedly hoping to be a province.

If i were you i, i will just vote for yes, indeed this is not only for ouw own this is for all of us. We dont know,myabe one of the pokitical person in our province someday is .your son or daughter, so lets take a good look on it.

Iboto sa plebesito, put it in our baloot this coming plebecite day ang YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll VOTE for YES for a Change! Boycotting it is unFilipino. voting NO is like you dont care bec. DI remains the same.

Anonymous said...

changing the present set-up will not change the status of DI. changing the leaders will. they just wanted it because of their interests. they want to stay in power as long as they can.
it like changing the constitution. proponents of charter change especially the congressmen want to change it because it will make their stay in congress longer. people no longer elect the prime minister but only the members of the majority party. they can hold power as long as they are the majority.
in DI, it looks like the PBMA leaders will win the votes of the majority because they have intact support from their members plus the lumads who are no longer happy with lumad leaders. the chances are higher compared to the present set-up. if dinagat and siargao will choose a congressman the playing field is almost equal. but if the election is only held in DI the fight is a mismatch. that's their best way to hold in power.
non-voting is un-filipino? i think it's the only patriotic option left. not approving their interests!
YES supporters, i ask you to explain your intellectual side based on facts and not just guessing or taking chances.
NO supporters, don't waste your time going to the precincts.
If there's a low turn-out during this election it just show that people are no longer interested in the POLITICAL CIRCUS.

raymond said...

those who vote yes voted because they wanted "change"?.... are you sure that by making dinagat a province will change everything? that's a gigantic fraud and deceit! and absolutely, its not right to say that voting NO! is "unFilipino". what a clever idea.... I VOTE FOR NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! BECAUSE I CARE!!!!! I LOVE MY BARANGAY AND MY TOWN.... those who opted "NO" kindly identify yourself in your comments. it is our way of showing that we are for what we believe is right besides we have a strong arguments in the legal arena, the supreme court might declare the move "void ab initio"

Anonymous said...

will you please shut up, you're nothing to do with your statement. If Dinagat Island will prevail into Island no changes will happen.If you love and care your barangay you can do much if dinagat will then become a province to the extent that there is already our own income from national, and of course your barangay is the one that is benefited to this, so you can do now your love and care to your barangay and the place where you belong. Many infrastructures are soon to be build, buildings, and even yourself will be improved much, if you only vote yes. YES to dinagat Province!!!!!!!!!!

Also to all the priests. As of my learning church and state are being separated so why is it that you are the number one who always inform to the people not to vote Yes. If you only know the fact, im sure you cannot do it so but since nothing lift in your mind so that's why instead of casting the goodworks that God has done you are campaigning not to Vote Yes.

Yes to prosperity, Yes to improvement, Yes to Works, the hopeless people will then become useful because many works will be introduced and they can work then.

Onother one, last Sunday I have been in chrurch of course my ponit of view or i mean my purpose is to pray God because it is good to pray with priest since he is the only one who can cast the good works of God and i want to know more lessons hoping that i can apply it to my study. And I was amazed and very much surprised that in his message or the third reading of his own, the only thing he had is to campaign and tell it to the people not to vote Yes in the day of plebecite what fuckin baby. Because I am Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so therefore i go outside and said it is useless. As the matter he i come from far away places spending more money for the fare but then that is only what i have recieved. Although we can do our prayers in everywhere, yes i do it so,but what i come there is to get lessons from GOd and not to listen your campaign. in short how much is the payment does the _______________ family paid it to you to do it so because i can make their offers to you more bigger.

YES voters make a clear explaination. give facts to what you are expecting. about the INTERNAL REVENUE ALLOTMENT, do you think DI will have the same IRA as surigao del norte has? absolutely NO!!!!!!! it is determined on how much DI will earn in taxes.
who will invest in DI? probably mining companies but the PBMA leadership who will be the province's leaders will prefer MINAHANG BAYAN!

You're Trying to equate PBMA to the Government. Its your fault kung nailad ka, Pero sa Gobyerno, its not ilad kung di corruptions. Kung kaya bantayan ng taong bayan walang corruptions. It means kung No ang manalo, its still the same, WALA! kung manalo man ang YES, problema ng pamahalaang lokal papano nya patakbuhin ang probensya, at least ang mamayan buhay pa rin meron man o wala, ang kagandahan lang ay magkarun tayo ng chance na umasenso. NAKUHA MO BA ANG PUNTO????

then name those chances and we will see if it's practical. it might be a SUNTOK SA BUWAN. it's obvious that your PUNTO is that you are just TAKING CHANCES.
I'll give you an example. before, the funding for the hospitals came from the national budget. when the local government code mandated the transfer of control to the local government, wa nay klaro. kay ang budget gikan na man lamang sa probinsiya. karon gikan sa dako nga province sa SURIGAO DEL NORTE moadto na sad ta sa mas gamay ug pobre pa nga DINAGAT PROVINCE. ang ato mga hospital mosamot ka makalolouy.
ang imo pangrason pareho rag magminyo nga dili ready. BAHALAG SAGING BASTA LOVING. inig naa nay bata dili gani kapa-iskuyla. buhi bitaw pero way edukasyon.
BANTAYAN NG TAONG BAYAN? paano? naa kay power? do you have the money to go to the courts and sue the corrupt officials?
trying to equate the PBMA? because they are the sure winner in the coming plebecite. if YES wins, PBMA/ECLEO reigns! if their members have the freedom to choose a candidate in the elections I might vote for YES. at present, do we have board members from Libjo, Tubajon and Loreto area? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! kinsa may ato mga board member gikan sa dinagat island? you know the answer.

junuels said...

never mine, we're not talking here the correct grammar. we are here just to express the reality........the real image of what the DI after winning ....................right?

well asking for the changes, we can have more than what the Surigao City had. As a Filipino we already influenced the ningas cogon , in which once it is new more care are going to be done. Since we wanted another new province................so of course more development will happen.


the development are as follows. but before anything else, i want to know your answer in this question... i know you can answer this easily since this question is only good for the person who don't have enough thinking. what is more bigger one dividedby 3 (1/3) or one dividedby 2( 1/2)...................................... if your answer is one dividedby 2 then you are in favor of YES............... here is the explaination, this is relevant again to the said development that the DI can do after which.......... if we will not be separated to Surigao, we can only have that (1/3)- talking about the income to be given by national. whereas if we will separate we can have that 1. so therefore 1/2, 1/2 because this budget will be then divided into surigao and siargao.

in short , we Dinagat Province is more progressive province than Surigao after which because our share is only ours and your share will not only yours since you will also give part of it to Siargao.


I am advancely inviting you all to attend the grand openning of our own Jolibee,,,greenwich, chowking,,,malls of our own,,, which i know it will not take more time to realized , since after this the investors who are already there in DI will begin to build the above infrastructures.

I also inviting you,because i know you don't have work this present since any managers will not admit you because your lazy,ugly,and dull to attend the victory party because after which, i recommend you to my friend since they wanted to have a janitors in his office. i hope you will be guided.

you're right and i know your point, i know that each of one has each own right, but the only thing i wanted you to know is our time is precious, each cent is very valuable then you are just using it in a proper way. your money instead to buy basic commodities will be going to comment in which it useless since still YES will win. your time instead of using it in productive way your just using it again in very much useless doing. Not like us although we are spending more money but never mine since DI people as it is said has more money which we let us to do everthing especially in a gainful works. like this since we are YES and because we are already sure that we will win this plebescite. okey so to make your doing useful just vote YES..................................

your mathematics is as elementary as the way you think. of course 1 is > than 1/2 is > than 1/3. but thE ISSUE is not a simple fraction. if you passed your algebra take another subject. ECONOMICS AND TAXATION so you will know the real picture. DO IT THIS WAY: WHICH IS BIGGER, THE INCOME OF INTIRE SURIGAO DEL NORTE DIVIDED BY THREE OR THE INCOME OF DINAGAT ISLAND ALONE. it is even not fair for the people in mainland if the provice's money is to be simply divided by three. they earn more than dinagat is making for the province.

so that is why I am asking to you whether, where is more bigger since we talk about the income. SO it only implies that if we go alone there is a great progress that will happen in our place and so with the Surigao and Siargao since the income to be given from national will only be divided into Surigao city and Siargao, excluding the DInagat anymore okey. since we already have our own budget, did you get my point.


Excuse me i have taken already the ECONOMICS AND TAXATION and I am proud to say that, since i obtain a higher grade from it. So i know what will be the real picture, right after the winning of YES........................ i know more than what you have in your mind so don't treat me like that.

well It is only a puzzle for you my dear, i just try only the capability of your IQ, i just try if you have that analysis. and if you have that logic. based of your explaination i think, that you failed a logic subject and that you also failed in Economics and Taxation subject since you cannot explain more your point of view. you mentioned that Economics and Taxation, if you mastered this subject well im sure you can say that it is better to have a new province to the extent that more development will happen so with the mother province since the budget for the mother province will only focuss to itselt and to SIargao.

if you don't understand my explaination, then i don't argue anymore. it's obvious that you are already decided to vote yes without understanding the issues. it is also hard to understand your english. that's maybe the reason you cannot convince me. if your not making good in your english subject how much more in taxation, economics and logic. all taught in english. but there is still time for to make your side. in bisaya or tagalog. i-explain kuno ni bi aron ma-convice ko nimo.
1. unsa may basihan sa national government pag determine sa amount sa IRA nga madawat sa probinsya?
2. fair ba ang umaabot nga mga eleksyon sa dinagat ug probinsya na.
3. accessible ba ang san jose sa taga libjo, tubajon ug loreto kay sa surigao city? kay adto na man unya ang mga gov. offices?
kana na lang una kay sayon2x.

Anonymous said...

MY POINT OF VIEW:
1. The bases(income) would be the figures in w/c the congres and senate approved!!!
2. Yes its very much accessible. If you use cars/buses. Loreto and Libjo to San Jose is les than 45 minutes, thats my approximations. If the concreting/widening is done, it may takes more or less 30 minutes from libjo.

Thats what make it scary, when YES wins, the Peace and Order in Dinagat Island will be at worst specially when NO voters will be forced to leave. Siargao Island was not developed by the government, its the investors who did it, same with those business establishments like jolibee, radio stations, factories and more. Well anyway, YES will most likely to win, well just see what will happen...

Kabalo ba mo nga mas lisod ang peace and order sa mainland kay sa San Jose. Tungod kay naa silay NPA unya nga ang Dinagat walay mga NPA or walhon. Unya nganong mahadlok man mo? Dili man na sila manghilabot ug dili nila membro.

Ajaw n pangutana kun unu na san jose gajod an centro nan probinsiya ky klaro sa RA 9355 Section 3, that the seat of provincial government and capital town of the newly-created province (dinagat Islands), is an SAN JOSE.Dapat gani na kuhaon an Division Office s dinagat ug ibalhin s san jose kay it is an express provision of RA 9355 otherwise known as the Dinagat Law n san jose an seat of provincial govenment. How could a certain town be considered the seat of provincial government if one of the most important public office (Division office) is located outside of san jose? Legally speaking, pursuant to RA 9355, it is impliedly provided, thus, that all the provincial offices must be located in the capital town which is san jose. No ifs, no buts.. jad2 dapat s san jose an tanan. One-stop shop and tumong ng dinagat law kun imo sabton.

The architect of the entire Province of Dinagat Islands are the Ecleo's. Making it into a province, was a wild dream of the former Mayor of Dinagat - a legendary spiritual leader and popularly known as "The South's Mysterious Superstar". I salute to the superb leadership qualities of the Ecleo's for transforming the once's impoverished island into a bustling mineral country in the Western Pacific Seabord. The Ecleo's did a lot, more than anything, to shape a new destiny not just for the "members" but as well as to the lumads, by passing a Bill in the House of Representatives that later became RA 9355. Through this law, Dinagat Islands will rise not just among, but one of the most richest province in the country. Dinagat Islands' high metallurgical grade, according to geo-scientists, will be the springboard to our development. Benefitwise, all dinagatnons will reap the good harvest in the future. Our provincehood and the management of local governmental affairs by the Ecleo's is anchored to the mandate of check-and-balance, where everyone is afforded oppurtunity to speak, assemble,adress grievances, as well as oppurtunity for employment. Employment in the government, i.e. Provl. Capitol, is not,and never had been restricted only to"members". Lumads are placed alongside with them. Political posts for provl. boards are selected and equally distributed in every municipalities to attain "Equal Power Sharing" so as to have equal representation in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. Minahang Bayans are established so as to reach and help the poor and the underprivileged sectors of our society. The leadership of Ecleo's is based on the dictum, "SALUS ET POPULI SUPREMA EST LEX", which in English means, "The Welfare of the People, is the Supreme Law". Ecleo's are governed by these basic and primary Law of Governance, that is, to see to it that the welfare of the dinagatnons are properly attended to. The rule of law, as has been enshrined in the 1987 Consitution, is followed, observed and practiced in the entire province in order to prevent injustices and curb cirminalities. No man, no Ecleo's is above the law, The Ecleo's are mainly the instrument of our governance, the leader of Dinagat's future, and as such, the hope and destiny of the young generation of dinagatnons lies primarily in their hands, the reason why we should respect snd idolize them for their exemplary performance, not just in politics,but for their inevitable leadership in leading a multitude faithfuls.

If not because of the Ecleo's, dinagat Islands, would remain an opressed frontier from the unscropulous political figures of Surigao del Norte. Now, at last, were free --- politically, economically and socially. As the old-adage goes, " SURI NA LANG 'GAW', kay probinsiya na mi. Thanks to Dr. Glenda B. Ecleo, for her unwavering move in the House of Reps, for the passage of RA 9355.

We dinagatnons should accept the real truth. We are lucky to have the ecleos leading us to making the dinagat into a province.

While we do have different opinions, we better keep it in ourselves yet observe what is happening around dinagat province. There is no need to throw a stone against anybody because it does no benefit to all of us. After all we are dinagatnons, let us share then and help whatever we can...if you are from abroad ...then try helping and share not only financially but morally....these thing could help us boost the faith that we dinagatnons from different corners of the world, should do for unity and for the good of our new province.
