PIA Press Release

Tacloban bares common poster areas for candidates

Tacloban City (February 26) -- Poster areas for candidates of the May 2010 elections have been identified.

This was announced by the Tacloban City Police Office headed by City Director PSSupt. Sergio A. Dimandal and the Tacloban City Commission on Elections Officer, Atty. Rosemarie Ann Reas Polistico.

It was learned that on February 19, the officers of said government agencies went around the city to scout for appropriate poster areas for the candidates.

Among the designated poster areas in Tacloban City are the RTR Waiting Shed along Justice Romualdez St.; in front of Gaisano Capital; Naga-Naga Junction; Plaza Libertad; DWU concrete fence along Avenida Veteranos; and Noblejas Junction.

Other identified poster areas in Tacloban City are LNU Mangonbangon; Abucay Junction; Botanical Garden; V&G Old Church; Marasbaras Servitek, San Jose-Baybay Junction; Sagkahan along Tacloban Convention Center; New Bus Terminal; and all the barangay halls.

The Tacloban City Comelec Office and the Tacloban City Police Office called on the national candidates and their supporters to first consult the elections offices as to the location of the common poster areas before they post campaign posters or materials in the City.

"We already designated common poster areas in very locality where the supporters of candidates would place campaign posters. There are people, however, who are really hard-headed and really wanted to violate rules," PSSupt. Dimandal said.

He explained that the call, for the time being, is for the posters of national candidates, otherwise, the same will be removed, still sparing the local candidates whose posters are now also mushrooming. He said this is because the campaign for local candidates is yet to start on March 26.

Prior to the start of local campaign, Comelec and PNP will also request all local candidates to remove all their posters and place their campaign paraphernalia only in designated common poster areas. Otherwise, these will also be removed. (PIA 8) [top]
