PNP reports drop in election-related violence in this year's polls

Manila (27 April) -- A downtrend in election-related violence in the country has been noted by the Philippine National Police (PNP).

The PNP announced that the 82 cases reported, as of this date, of which 20 resulted to deaths were lower than similar incidents in the 2001 and 2004 elections.

This decline is attributed to the PNP's intensive campaign against private armed groups which have been reduced to 38 from the 90 groups recorded in 2001, and loose firearms from which 1,762 firearms, 177 explosives, 291 deadly weapons were confiscated and 1,883 persons arrested.

Meanwhile, the government's resolve to have a peaceful and orderly May elections, election officers and the voters is shown with the fielding of 89,000 police personnel to secure the polling places, assigning two cops per voting center, deployment of the elite Special Action Force in critical areas of concern like Abra, Masbate and in some areas of Region 12 and 6 and the deployment of soldiers in areas with serious armed threats.
