TAGBILARAN CITY. Families of former city councilors Atty. Oscar B. Glovasa and Atty. Alexander ?Aleckoy? H. Lim won?t give up the fight, a
reliable source told Bohol News Today last night. But partymates of Nationalist People?s Coalition (NPC) in which Glovasa was affiliated and Aleckoy Lim, who belonged to P-Noy?s Liberal Party (LP) won’t take the issue sitting down, either, the source said. Former maverick-councilors Glovasa and Lim passed away recently, leaving two vacancies at the city council.
The source said that the family of Atty. Aleckoy Lim wanted his youngest
son Alexis Francis.Kit Lim to serve the former’s unexpired term as city
councilor. The elder brother of Alexis Francis Kit Lim, who is lawyer by
profession, will not give the vacancy left by his father ?in a silver
platter. the source said.
This came following the endorsement to LP’s higher ups made by city LP
directorate for Atty. Augustinos Dodong Gonzaga to replace Aleckoy Lim,
report quoted Vice-Mayor Jose Antonio Veloso, who is a partymate of Aleckoy
Lim, as saying. Gonzaga was LP’s bet for mayor in last year?s elections but did not make it.
On the other hand, the family of Glovasa also wanted his wife Dulce Chatto
Glovasa to replace her husband. Dulce Glovasa was quoted by radio interview
that this is the wish of her husband.
The source said that the widow of Atty. Oscar Glovasa had already been
sworn in as NPC member. Reports have it that Rep. Arthur Yap (3rd dist),
who is reportedly the head of the NPC Bohol, facilitated Dulce Glovasa?s
But the camp of then mayor Dan Neri Lim had already signed a party
Resolution endorsing him (Dan Lim) to be the official replacement of
Glovasa. The said endorsement signed by partymates is already forwarded to
the NPC national hierarchy in Manila. Businessman Danding Cojuangco is the
NPC national chairman, the source said.
What complicates the supposed party concern is that members of the city
council, who are either NPC members or non-NPC, signed a council Resolution
favoring Glovasa?s widow to replace her husband, the source said.
