History and Government

 

In olden times, it was believed that Katunian, the greatest of the gods of the Kalingas, left in one of his travels a drop of water upon an ancient tree. This drop trickled down and like a metal of great magnetic force, attracted brooks and rivulets to form a river called the Pasil river.

 

As years passed, villages were established wherever possible along the banks of the river. The residents of these villages soon began to be called “I-Pasil”, meaning “residents along the Pasil River”.

 

Pasil was originally part of Lubuagan. Agitation for its separation first began under the term of Congressman Canao in 1954, when a convention for the Pasil area was held at Guinaang. For that purpose, however, the required minimum number of population could not be met. The movement was spearheaded by prominent men and other leaders from Magsilay and Dangtalan. No Congressional bills were filed during this period.

 

Agitation continued during the term of Congressman Duyan until a bill was finally approved on June 18, 1966 as Republic Act 4147 creating the municipality of Pasil. The first set of municipal officials should have been appointed but the Congressman delayed the issuance of appointments due to bitter rivalry among the many contenders for municipal positions. The first election was held in 1967 and the law was finally implemented on January 2, 1968.

 

The mayor in 1992 was Gavino Mosing. He was replaced by Pancy T. Bakidan in 1995 in turn succeeded by Antonio Dalsen in 1998.

 

There are fourteen barangays composing the municipality: Ableg, Balatoc, Balinciagao Norte, Cagaluan, Colayo, Dalupa, Dangtalan, Galdang (Casaloan), Guina-ang (Poblacion), Magsilay, Malucsad, Pugong, Balinciagao Sur and Bagtayan.
