Bulacan back to work after SC ‘status quo’ order on gov war
Posted by akosistella on March 11, 2010
CITY OF MALOLOS—Provincial government employees on Wednesday dismantled steel railings and removed trucks that had barricaded all five major roads leading to the provincial capitol.
True to his word, incumbent Gov. Joselito Mendoza ordered employees to return to work, after a weekend standoff between his supporters and those of Roberto Pagdanganan Jr. that disrupted government transactions on Monday and Tuesday.
Mendoza gave the order on Tuesday as soon as he received word that the Supreme Court had allowed him to keep his post for at least seven more days, or until March 16.
