By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan City (January 15) -- The Samar Island Partnership for Peace and Development (SIPPAD) Assembly pushes for a candidates forum for the provincial level this coming national elections.

In yesterday's 13th SIPPAD, held at St. Mary's College –Catbalogan, it was resolved that candidates' forum be held where the diocese social action center will take the lead.

The candidates' forum if aired or televised will help voters' decide as to the merits of the candidates.

It would also give the candidates opportunity to inform the people their platforms of governance and their planned programs for the province.

Aside from the envisioned candidates' forum, the social action center will also undertake voters' education, peace covenants and other activities that will usher a peaceful and honest election.

In a phone interview with Atty. Corazon Montallana, Provincial COMELEC Supervisor, she said that she appreciates the efforts being planned by the social action center.

On her own, Montallana said she has also a scheduled voters' education campaign for the AFP this afternoon and the same with PNP on Monday.

She has also included schools and different municipalities for the information campaign.

In February, Comelec –Samar will be holding a public demonstration on the optical scan machines "so that voters will see how their votes will be counted," she informed PIA.

This, she does aside from periodically appearing in local papers and granting radio interviews re election issues. (PIA-Samar) [top]
