Tinuluyan na! DILG unseats Gaite; Besinio now Baao mayor
Erstwhile Vice Mayor Jeff Besinio is now the new mayor of Baao town in Camarines Sur.
This, after the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region V officially served the dismissal order against Mayor Melqiades Gaite, a Bicol Standard report Tuesday (May 9) said.
Last month, Ombudsman Conchita-Carpio Morales issued a resolution sacking the local chief executive over a supposedly anomalous lease agreement involving the local public market.
The report said that Besinio took his oath of office as “full-fledged mayor.”
DILG Region V legal division chief, lawyer Zalman Uddin bared that Gaite chose not to personally receive the dismissal order. It was instead posted inside the Municipal Hall.
