History and Government

 

The town's name came from the native term “asip” which means scabbard, and “pulo”, which refers to the number 10. It is said that in olden times, when headhunting in the area was still acceptable, 10 unidentified leaders wore around their waists a scabbard with a bolo to act as defenders of their people from hostile tribes.

 

The creation of the municipality of Asipulo is by virtue of Republic Act No. 7173. This law was passed by the House of Representatives on December 11, 1991 and by the Senate on December 9, 1991. It was approved by then President Corazon C. Aquino on January 13, 1992 and was finally ratified by the people in a plebiscite held on July 5, 1992. In the plebiscite, 4,497 votes were cast as against a total number of 9,190 registered voters. The result was an overwhelming 4,354 or 96.82% affirmative votes against a negligible 143 or 3.18% negative votes. Asipulo became the province's newest municipality, carved out of Kiangan, its mother municipality.

 

On June 5, 1993, the first set of municipal officials were appointed by President Fidel V. Ramos. The municipal mayor was Carlos Gumangan with Crescencio Dulnuan as his vice mayor. In 1995, the first set of elected municipal officials assumed office with Pio Dupingay as mayor and Jose Gullitiw as vice mayor. Jose Gullitiw won as the next mayor in the 1998 elections.

 

Asipulo is composed of 9 barangays, namely: Amduntog, Antipolo, Camandag, Cawayan, Haliap, Namal, Nungawa, Panubtuban and Pula. Its remotest barangays are Cawayan, Camandag and Namal. Namal can only be reached from the seat of the municipal government in Amduntog by hiking for about 8 hours.
