Statement of the President Re: Election Violence

Manila (30 April) -- I am calling on the Armed Forces to reinforce the police, under Commission on Elections authority, to stop election violence and move forcefully against those using threats and intimidation for partisan ends.

This as I strongly urge candidates of all parties and persuasions to keep tensions at bay and not to test or defy the authorities. Checkpoints must be manned vigilantly 24 by 7 and all unauthorized firearms held.

Cases of election violence must be speedily investigated and cases filed promptly. All identified private armies must be preempted and dismantled. (OPS) [top]
