Teves continues in office as NegOr gov

MANILA, Philippines – After being disqualified by the Commission on Elections, Pryde Henry Teves said he will continue to serve as governor of Negros Oriental.

This is because the Supreme Court (SC) has not yet made a decision on his Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) opposing the annulment of his proclamation.

“At this moment, I am your governor. There is no order to uninstall or unseat me (from my current position),” said Teves in his regular weekly press briefing at the Capitol.

He said he spoke with Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG-7) Director Leocadio Trovela on Tuesday night and learned that they also did not have an order to remove him from the position and that they were “confused about how to interpret” the copy of the writ of execution by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) en banc issued them.

Under a Comelec en banc decision dated September 27 it nullified Teves’ victory in the May 9 election after his nearest rival candidate, Roel Degamo, was outvoted by a nuisance candidate.

De Gamo, in fact, has pledged before President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., for his tenure.

Teves’ camp filed a TRO in the Supreme Court challenging the nullification of his proclamation.

The SC is expected to make a decision on October 11, which Teves said he will respect, regardless of whether it is in his favor or not. RNA
