Peace reigns in Davao, ComVal areas

By Jean Duron-Abangan

Tagum City (11 May) -- Peace reigns in Davao del Norte, Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley during the election day.

Civil Military Operations Officer Bryan Bagaipo of the 1001st Infantry Brigade Philippine Army finds total peace throughout the holding of national and local elections in eastern portions of Compostela Valley and the entire Davao Oriental.

"Ang ganda ng elections. Walang violent incidents," he said.

The military was on red alert days before the election especially after New People's Army (NPA) elements harassed a soldier who was part of a team securing the delivery of precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machine.

Lt. Bagaipo said the military knows that NPA elements will likely strike to carry out atrocities but that they did not do on election day though there was no truce made with the rebel group.

"Walang gulo," he said.

Reports received were only about units of PCOS machine that conked but Bagaipo said the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) had made the necessary remedy for such problem.

Meanwhile, Police Senior Superintendent Jose Pante, Davao del Norte police director said the election ran smoothly in Davao del Norte.

"Davao del Norte has always been peaceful. There was no violent incident monitored," he said in a separate interview.

Just like what the military has taken note of, police authorities got reports of conked units of PCOS machine only.

Pante said complaints raised by voters were also noted elsewhere and not only in Davao del Norte. (PIA-XI) [top]
