Capiceņos urged to go out and vote

Roxas City (6 May) -- Provincial Election Supervisor and lawyer Wil Areceņo has called on registered Capiceņo voters to be counted in the upcoming May 10 national and local elections.

"I urge the Capiceņos to go out early and vote," Arceņo advised.

He also hoped for a peaceful election in the province as he admitted that some Capiz towns are considered election areas of concern because of reported presence of insurgents and intense political rivalry among local candidates.

The province has a total of 431,368 registered voters based on the latest Commission on Elections (Comelec) provincial statistical data.

"We are focusing at the moment on the deployment of Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines to the various voting centers provincewide," Arceņo noted.

In related developments, the government is throwing all its support to the COMELEC in its efforts to make the country?s first automated elections a success.

In a statement, Presidential Spokesperson Ricardo Saludo said the unwavering concerted support of the government and the people for the Comelec is crucial.

"The COMELEC can count on all the instrumentalities of government to safeguard our democratic processes," Saludo said in the wake of reports about certain technical problems being encountered during the testing of vote-counting machines.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has also directed Secretary Ray Anthony Chua of the Commission on Information and Communication Technology (CICT) to assist the COMELEC on the technical hitches being encountered in the PCOS test runs.

The President had asked Chua to provide technical support to the COMELEC and help provide alternative solutions, if any, to the problems with the PCOS machines. (PIA) [top]
