Spare trees from your campaign materials, DENR NVizcaya tells pols

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (February 2) -- "Do not use trees during your campaign", thus warned officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on politicians and their supporters in the wake of the campaign period towards the May 2010 national and local elections.

"The DENR is tasked to implement prohibitions and instructions to remove campaign materials without prior notice. We are hoping for your understanding and cooperation," Robert Apigo, provincial environment and natural resources officer here said in a media statement.

He said that they have issued the statement as a notice of warning among local and national candidates and business establishments in the province to refrain from nailing and posting campaign materials, commercial advertisements and billboards to planted trees along the national highways and public plazas as well as campuses.

The acts mentioned are prohibited under COMELEC Resolution No. 6616 and Section 3 of Republic Act 3571.

RA 3571 is an act prohibiting the cutting, destroying of injuring of planted or growing trees, flowering plants and shrubs or plants of scenic value along public roads, plazas, parks, school premises or in any other public grounds.

Commission on elections Resolution No. 6616 upheld RA 3571 and created a task force to monitor violators and tear down materials found violating the law.

The law will be implemented by the COMELEC, DENR and the Philippine National Police. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
