Nov 13, special non-working holiday in Bulacan First District
Friday, 12 November 2010
CITY OF MALOLOS-- The Bulacan Provincial Board yesterday issued Provincial Ordinance No. 082-T’10 declaring November 13, 2010 (Saturday) as a non-working holiday to give way to the special congressional election for the 1st District.

The special non-working holiday will cover the city of Malolos and the municipalities of Calumpit, Bulacan, Hagonoy, Paombong and Pulilan where the automated elections for the special elections for the congressional race will be held.

The election in the province’s first district was deffered after the Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional the law creating the Lone District of the City of Malolos which is part of the said congressional district.
As a result, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) issued Resolution No. 10-0754 dated August 03, 2010 which stated that a special election should be held in the first congressional district of Bulacan.

The special elections was first set on September 12 but was later moved to October 12 then to November 6. It was again re-scheduled on November 13.

Bulacan election supervisor Atty. Sabino Mejarito said that it’s now all-systems-go for the special congressional elections. He said the Precinct Count Optical Scan Systems (PCOS) machines and other elections paraphernalia are now in-place in the different voting precincts.

The congressional race in the 1st district has turned into a one-on-one contest between re-electionist Congresswoman Maria Victoria Alvarado, wife of Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado, and former Governor Roberto Pagdanganan. Both candidates circled the different parts of the district through a motorcade last Thursday.###
