Capiz not an election area of concern

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (25 April) -- "I'm hoping for peaceful elections in the province."

This was the wish of Commission on Elections (Comelec) Provincial Election Supervisor lawyer Wil Arceņo for the upcoming May 14 national and local polls.

He admitted that some Capiz towns are considered election areas of concern because of reported presence of insurgents and intense political rivalry among local candidates.

The Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO) has considered at least 12 municipalities as election areas of concern in the province.

However, the province of Capiz is not included in the Philippine National Police's (PNP) list of nine provinces classified as election areas of concern based on the initial assessment of the prevailing situation in these areas.

However, the assessment is still subject to validation, the PNP noted.

These provinces include Cagayan, Isabela, Abra, Nueva Ecija, Masbate, Western Samar , Lanao Del Sur, Sulu, and Basilan.

The evaluation will serve as basis of police operational planning in deployment of security forces, structuring of local PNP units as well as allocation of resources.

The PNP's election areas of concern were broken down into two major categories which are areas with history of election-related violence, existence of intense political rivalry between contending parties, and possible employment of partisan armed groups of candidates and areas with serious threats by the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People's Army, Moro Islamic Liberation Front, Moro National Liberation Front, and other similar armed organizations.
