MANILA, Philippines – A bill seeking to establish the new province of Nueva Camarines was passed on second reading in the Senate Tuesday.

The passage of the bill had been delayed previously after Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV engaged in a verbal tussle in session over the alleged railroading of the bill last year.

Senate Pro Tempore Jinggoy Estrada, who had stated that the bill was not yet dead, continued to push for the measure before the Senate went on Christmas break last year.

The bill seeks to create the new province of Nueva Camarines from the fourth district of Camarines Sur.

    still in denial of the reaper’s presence.  i just wonder if these people realize that they cannot bundle everything into the afterlife.

    More provinces = virtual feifdoms for political dynasties! Block all moves to divide the provinces of the Philippines!

  • akoombulator

    ano ba yung villafuerte sakit ba yan na parang cancer na permanenteng nakaratay ang pasyente?

  • wilson

    kaming  taga camsur ang nakakaalam kung dapat o hindi hatiin ngayon nakapasa na sa second reading bukas 3rd reading na at least kami ang magdidisisyon kung gusto o ayaw namin.

      ako po taga camarines sur man. dai mi kaipuhan an another province. gastos na naman. habo mi na magkaigua na naman ki bagong probinsiya. NO, NO , NO NO.

    • TotoyKalentong

      Bakit, buwis niyo lang ba gagamitin niyo sa pagdaos ng plebisito? Sa pagpapatayo, pagpapasahod, pagtaguyod ng bagong lalawigan?

    • popeyee

      Luis, ikaw ba yan? Anong kamo ang nakakaaram? Mga politikong ganid sa kwarta ang tlagang nakakaramm…

    • indiosbravos2002

      Losi mo. Nabakal ka sigurado ni Luis Sr. NO WAY!

    What are the merits of creating a new province? In Japan, the third largest economy in the world, they are consolidating big cities into one to bring down the cost of government. Tayo sa Pilipinas na di hamak na masmahirap ay gusto pa ni Enrile at ni Gloria madagdagan ang gastusin ng bayan to accommodate feudal lords. Wala na ba tayong matinong magagawa para sa bayan?

    Is the senate representing the people or the senators’ political friends and allies?

  • ThudOthwacker

    They carve a new province so Aga Muhlach can run for office. 

    Oh please, California’s economy the eight largest in the world(2011). And it’s being ran by a GOVERNOR! The Philippines GDP is not even within five percent of California’s GDP. 

    Just amazing, if only our lawmaker are inventors of cars, computers and gadgets. We will be the most prosperous nation in the world.

    • indiosbravos2002

      No, this will benefit more the political enemy of Aga… The Fuentebellas. Once the new province comes to fruition, The family of Arnulfo Fuentebella will lord the new province for a very loooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnngggggg time. Mark my words.
      Instead of development, the new province will just be abused and raped by this family.

  • KurakotNaPinoy

    Kalokohan ito. The new province is not needed and is only pushed through in order to accomodate the political dynasties present in Cam Sur.

    I support that Cam Sur remain intact – there is this matter of saving government costs still.

  • wilson

    tanungin niyo ang mga tao sa cam sur kung ano ang nangyayari sa province sa pamumuno  ni lray at bakit takot na takot kayo na mahati tao naman  ang magdidisisyon pabayaan natyin.

    • popeyee

      Hindi ka siguro kung tao talaga ang magdidisisyon dahil karamihan sa mga botante lalo na sa liblib na probinsya ay nabibili ang boto..

  • wilson

    siguradong makakapasa na yan sa senate this week kasi  ang third reading formalty na lang yan magtataasan na lang ng kamay.

  • Fayha

    kalokohan ang ganitong batas. gagawa nang panibagong provinsya para lang maaccommodate ang mga kurakot na pulitiko. wala na kasing ma pwestohan. kawawa ang Pilipinas na naman. dahil halos lahat nang pulitiko pansarli lang ang iniisip. ang role model dyan na may pansarili pag iisip yung mga senador winawaldas nila ang pera nang bayan.

  • palakasantayo

    The Philippines is going back to the tribal system. Maraming ambitioso sa atin, sila ang gustong maging hari kasi overloaded na itong mga probinsiya natin. Itong mga membryo ng ‘dynasty’ wala ng mapuntahan.

    • buttones

      Another Governor, a few more Reps, pork included- as you say it’s back to the old tribal system.

  • popeyee

    Another waste of taxpayers’ money..

  • kismaytami

    Another useless bill, crafted for the whims of political dynasty. Throw the bill to the bin!

  • zeroko

    Diyan magaling ang senate, gawa ng province at magpalit ng pangalan ng streets. Same old tricks just to justify their 2.2 million MOOE each month.

      Someday our provinces will all be the size of a barangay.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Jinggoy pursuing the passage of the bill. Nagamit na naman ang bobong ito ni ENRILE.

  • indiosbravos2002

    A sad day for the people of Camarines Sur.

    Papaparty na daw si Fuentebella at Luis Villafuerte. In the bag na courtesy of Enrile and Jinggoy.

  • tamakajan

    A new excuse for corruption and power grabbing, make a new town to get porky barrels and tons of government funds in the pocket of only few.
    This is the Senate at its best!

    Bill creating Nueva Camarines hurdles Senate second reading…

    New Province, again.
    Canada’s provinces are 8 times bigger than Philippines and yet they have only 10 provinces.
    Whereas the Philippines has 81 and more are coming.
    More of politicians gain than peoples gain.

    • indiosbravos2002

      This will be a gain for two political families that have been fighting over Cam. Sur since time immemorial. The Grand plan is to give each family a piece of the pie to eventually stop the fighting in expense of the Cam. sur people.

    Yudisota. Ugmahon na naman kaini si Luis Sr. asin an mga Fuentebella. Iiba ta na an mga Alfelor kan Iriga. Sa lebel kan sarong Bicolano – partikularmente kan sarong taga-Camarines Sur –  dae ko nahihiling an karahayan kan panibagong probinsiya. Damay an lugar mi sa barangaan na ini. Solamenteng pansadiring kahadean an nahihiling ko na motibo sa likod kaining Nueva Camarines na ini. 

    P*nyet*. Tuwang-tuwa na naman nito si Luis Sr. at ang mga Fuentebella. Isama na rin natin ang mga Alfelor ng Iriga. Sa lebel ng isang Bicolano – lalo na bilang taga-Camarines Sur – hindi ko nakikita ang kabutihan ng bagong probinsiyang ito. Damay ang bayan namin sa hatian na ito. Walang iba kundi ang pansariling kaharian ang nakikita kong motibo sa likod ng Nueva Camarines na ito.

    Luis Villafuerte (na hindi naman nakatira sa lugar na sakop ng Nueva Camarines na ito), mga Fuentebella ng Partido District, at mga Alfelor ng Rinconada, hinding-hindi kayo lulusot sa balota ko.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UWISP2YXGDQ7K2SIX2GI37B2EI Darwin

    nyeta! gasos na naman ito na hindi naman kailangan. ang kailangan natin, mga pulitiko na magsisilbi hindi gahaman. hindi natin kailangan ng bagong probinsya para maibigay ang mga pagababago na kailangan.
