NEWS: Mylene not yet withdrawing from Daneco GM bid- Salve

“NEA would have still to declare the position vacant”

july 21

Tagum City Councilor Mylene Baura has not yet withdrawn from her bid as she has yet to apply for the vacant position of general manager of the multi-billionaire Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative (Daneco), clarified City Councilor Reynaldo Salve in an ambush interview during a forced break of their session due to a sudden brownout Monday morning.

Baura, a lawyer and certified public accountant (CPA), was earlier endorsed in a resolution filed at the City Council in last week’s session as more than qualified to be the next Daneco general manager following the death of GM Edgardo Savellano.

She was present on Monday’s session but she went out from the session hall when the session resumed after about 10 minutes of power interruption.

Salve said that inasmuch that the National Electrification Administration (NEA) or the Daneco Board of Directors has not yet declared the position vacant and “published it in a newspaper” nobody could yet apply for Daneco GM.

Salve said that the the right process based on the bylaws is that first NEA would have first to receive applications from applicants for the GM and it (NEA) would have to select from among qualified applicants and endorse him or her to the Daneco Board which would also endorse its choice to NEA for confirmation.

“The resolution of endorsement to Mylene is still referred to the committee on government organizations and nongovernment organizations,” Salve clarified in the heels of reports that Baura has withdrawn from her GM’s bid in favor of the current OIC GM Alan Laniba, who was endorsed the other Saturday by all of the present members of Daneco Board except member Dean Briz, the city budget officer and Mayor Rey Uy’s protege.

“NEA has still many things to do in selecting who should head Daneco including doing BI (background investigation) on the applicants,” Salve said.

The resolution endorsing Baura for Daneco GM in last week’s session had fueled speculations that Mayor Uy was pulling the strings in his plan of putting the electric cooperative that services most of Davao del Norte, all of Compostela Valley and the Island Garden City of Samal (Igacos) under the city’s program and direction.

Daneco has over 120,000 member-consumers at present.

For its 37 years of existence now, Daneco is already billionaire cooperative deriving about P1.2-billion operating revenue as of November 2007, per earlier report of Daneco official website. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
