MGen. Romeo Lustestica, commander of the first infantry division of the Philippine Army assured the public that the AFP will remain non-partisan.

He said the AFP will ensure the success of the coming 2010 elections by upholding the sanctity of the ballots and protecting human rights.

PCSupt. Bienvinido Latag, ARMM Police Regional Director, on the othelice will always abide the force of law and will not use their resources for the interest of any candidates.

ARMM COMELEC Director Atty. Rey Sumalipao meanwhile vowed not to tolerate and commit any irregularity in the forthcoming elections.
