Buseco protest in Malaybalay City

This week’s protest calling for the ouster of Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative General Manager Edgardo Masongsong showed a bigger and braver crowd including priests and nuns.

But organizers called off the protest following a gentleman’s agreement with the clergy after a day. The clergy entered into a dialogue with the Buseco management on December 14, on the same day as that of the protest.

In the dialogue, Presidential Adviser on Rural Electrification Fr. Francisco Silva ordered Masongsong  to drop his libel charges against Bishop Honesto Pacana and 51 Bukidnon priests.

Masongsong obliged and also agreed to submit to a vote of confidence on December 21 among Buseco staff with Pacana around. 

Fr. Jonathan Tianero and Buseco Malaybalay branch Juancho Chiong said this could lead to a resolution of the ensuing conflict between the clergy and Buseco.
