Philippines: Petitioners against Cagayan De Oro City Mayor claim 25,000 signatures since January 13

Petitioners need 45,000. The recall against Mayor Vincent Emano stems from the 700+ deaths in a December 17 flash flood (due to Topical Storm Sendong). According to the paper:  Cagayan de Oro officials were allegedly remiss in taking measures to mitigate the effects of the storm, such as issuing warnings to affected population and ordering evacuation of threatened places.

The Mayor's defenders are calling for the entire council to face a recall instead.
