Councilor resigns for health reason

BACARRA, Ilocos Norte, March 10–Municipal councilor Bonifacio Miguel tendered his irrevocable resignation due to failing eye condition. Media report said Miguel quit as member of the Sangguniang Bayan claiming that he will undergo eye operation on his cataract. However, observers said his claim to give up his elective post is doubtful suspecting that there must be deeper reason behind it. It was learned that SB member Amy Acob, a political ally of Miguel had resigned earlier citing also failing health reason.(tsg w/ jm report)
