COMELEC, PNP officials crossing fingers for peaceful polls

BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental, Philippines – As the local campaign period has started and political rivalry heats up, the Commission on Elections Provincial Office along with the Negros Occidental Police continues with their monitoring as they hope for a peaceful election day on 9 May 2022.

COMELEC Provincial Supervisor, Lawyer Roberto Salazar said under the Election Resolution Number 10732, permits are no longer required by the COMELEC Campaign Committee which is why reason why no one filed for an application though political rallies were held.

So far, Salazar said, they have not received any complaints describing the events as “peaceful”.

Meanwhile, Provincial Police Spokesperson Lt. Abegael Donasco said that they have not recorded any poll related activities since local campaign period began three days ago.

She however said they have yet to confirm if the recent clash between rebels and soldiers in Himamaylan will change the city’s area of concern category from orange to red.

The two provincial officers said they are looking forward for a peaceful local campaign and elections.
