CAPELCO on 'red alert' for May 10 polls

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (6 May) -- The Capiz Electric Cooperative (CAPELCO) has assured of a stable power supply in the province for the upcoming May 10 national and local elections.

"Power supply will continue as long as there is no problem from our suppliers," CAPELCO Public Information Officer Kenneth Tipon clarified.

The cooperative will also maximize its manpower to ensure that power supply in the province will not be distracted during election.

Earlier, CAPELCO General Manager Engr. Edgar Diaz said that the cooperative's linemen are not enough to the number of schools that will be utilized as voting centers "but we will try hard to deliver stable power supply."

The cooperative's assurance came after the DOE has presented its power contingency plan to the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to ensure "adequate and fail-safe" power supply during the elections.

Meanwhile, Malacaņang is confident that Monday's election will push through, adding it will come out as an honest, peaceful and fair political exercise.

Several presidential spokespersons said Malacaņang harbors no doubt whatsoever on the capability of the Commission on Election to settle the technical problems that surfaced during the test-runs of the automated vote counting machines.

"Let's give COMELEC a chance. They say they can do it so let's respect them," said Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Gary Olivar during a Malacaņang press briefing.

Olivar also called on the people to ignore "political noise" like one linking Malacaņang to a possible postponement of Monday's exercise. (PIA) [top]
