Comelec to bets: No campaigning on Holy Week

Manila (29 March) -- The Commission on Elections reminded candidates last Friday that campaigning will be prohibited during the Holy Week.

According to Comelec Resolution 8758 which contains the implementing rules and regulations of the RA 9006 or the Fair Elections Practices Act; "it is unlawful for any person, whether or not a voter or a candidate, or for any political party, or association of persons to engage on election campaign or partisan political activity on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, eve of Election Day and on Election Day.? For purposes of the May 10, 2010 elections, campaigning is prohibited on April 1, 2010 (Maundy Thursday) and April 2, 2010 (Good Friday).

Comelec Spokesman James Jimenez urged candidates to turn off their loudspeakers and their campaign jingles during the said dates in deference to the Holy Week.

He added that candidates should make use of the Holy Week to reflect and ponder on all the promises they dished out during the campaign period and on how they intend to bring them to fruition should they get elected in May. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
