Bishop Cenzon won't endorse candidates

by Redjie Cawis

Baguio City (1 May) -- The different churches and religious sectors will likely be endorsing candidates for the upcoming May 10 elections but the Roman Catholic Church will remain apolitical.

Bishop Carlito Cenzon of the Archdiocese of Baguio and the whole of the Catholic Church in Baguio City told reporters last week that they would not be endorsing candidates for any position in the upcoming elections.

'Although I have picked my candidates, I will not name them and will remain with me only', said Cenzon.

The Bishop said he has picked his candidates for city mayor even before the Mayoralty Forum sponsored by the Centennial Commission was held at the Bishops House last week. The Baguio Beyond 2009 committee of the Centennial Commission held the'Touching the Future', an interaction with the mayorables of the city last Wednesday.

The mayoralty candidates laid down their plans for the future of the city with regards to environment protection, land tenure issues, garbage, squatting and tourism during the forum.

The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines will also remain apolitical and will not endorse any candidates in the national and local elections.

But the church will be involved in the automated elections thru the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).

The PPCRV has been conducting voters education to the different communities in the city. They will also be active in guarding the integrity of the upcoming automated elections on May 10. (PIA) [top]
