DILG finally acknowledges CamNorte Gov Tallado’s return


The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has released official certification of Edgardo Tallado’s reassumption as Camarines Norte governor some two weeks after he returned to the Capitol.

Vice Governor Jonah Pimentel, the man who replaced Tallado during his month-long “dismissal” from office, received only last Tuesday (January 3) a document from DILG Regional Director Elouisa Pastor confirming Tallado’s reassumption of his old post last December 19.

Brigade News FM Daet said that the DILG Central Office has acknowledged the Court of Appeals (CA) ruling that basically allowed Tallado to continue functioning as provincial chief executive.

The same DILG document directed erstwhile governor Pimentel to slide back down to Vice Governor, which he already did.

Tallado’ dismissal had to do with a charge on gross immorality that was filed by one Jonel Banal. He was earlier suspended for an entire year, from October 2015 to October 2016.

It was in 2015 when a sex video of the politiko and his mistress went viral online.

Meanwhile, the recent upheaval hasn’t tarnished the relationship between Tallado and Pimentel, who belong to the same political party.
