Who and to what position are just some of the questions regarding the 2013 Mid-term Elections in the Municipality of Malay this past days.

These questions however were answered as soon as the clock hits 5pm of yesterday, after Malay Election Officer Elma Cajilig announced to the Media, the names of those running for office.

A confirmation from the COMELEC that there will be no rivals for Incumbent Mayor John Yap had drawn different reactions even from some town hall people.

A high ranking government official of Malay refuses to vacate a beach front property which lease expired 16 years ago. The high ranking official operates a popular beach front club in the said island. Now, the real owners of the said property will be facing an estafa case after they have sold and failed to deliver the said property to the new owners. The seller offered to exchange the property with another property in a different location but the said high ranking official also occupies the said lot without any lease contract. As per our inquiry at the assessors office, the said properties are indeed under the name of the seller's family.
