Barangay 16 Ka­gawad Er­win Arela re­cently re­placed slain Barangay Cap­tain Nel­son Lig­aya, Jr., who was re­cently shot dead by four rid­ing-in­tan­dem sus­pects.

Ba­colod City Depart­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Govern­ment (DILG) Di­rec­tor Ma. Joy Mared­ith Ma­dayag said Arela vis­ited their of­fice last Mon­day, where he was ad­vised to take charge as the new barangay cap­tain.

She also said it is up to Arela as to when he will be sworn into of­fice.

The DILG of­fi­cial added, the Barangay 16 govern­ment should also pass a res­o­lu­tion rec­om­mend­ing the can­di­date com­ing sev­enth should as­sume the post of barangay ka­gawad.

Ba­colod City Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia, mean­while, said he hoped Arela would wait for Lig­aya’s wake to end be­fore of­fi­cially tak­ing the post; adding, Arela is open to join­ing his po­lit­i­cal coali­tion Grupo Pro­greso.
