Ifugao candidates snub peace covenant signing

by Dan B. Codamon

LAGAWE, Ifugao (23 April) -- Only two candidates showed up for the peace covenant signing here scheduled last April 16 for an honest, orderly and peaceful election (HOPE) come the May 14, 2007 poll.

The peace agreement signing was planned by the Commission on Election, who invited all the provincial candidates, to sign a Memorandum of Agreement that can help prevent violence and ensure compliance with election laws for the coming election.

Expected to start at 9am, only Dr. Wesley Dulawan who is a candidate for congressman for the lone district of Ifugao arrived promptly followed by candidate for Board Member Donato Ananayo Jr.

The host Ifugao Peace and Order Council headed by the Police Provincial Director Pedro Ganir and COMELEC officials have to wait for more than two hours for the occasion to begin but the other candidates failed to show themselves or at least notify the body of their non-appearance.

With only two candidates present, the council members and the COMELEC decided to cancel the peace covenant signing and integrate it with the scheduled succeeding candidates' forum in the afternoon. (PIA Ifugao) [top]
