Capiz to elect 473 sets of barangay, SK officials

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (16 September) -- The province will elect new sets of barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials for its 473 barangays in view of the upcoming October 25 elections.

The preparations are also being finalized by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Provincial Office to complete the necessary requirements for the election.

"There will be a command conference on Sept. 20 at the Police Regional Office (PRO) ? 6 in Iloilo City to plan out security plans," said COMELEC Provincial Election Supervisor and lawyer Wil Arceņo.

He added that a nationwide gun ban will be implemented starting Sept. 25 to curb violence stemming from the uncontrolled use of firearms in the run-up to the barangay elections.

The poll gun ban will end on November 10.

The COMELEC has decided to re-implement the total gun ban because security forces have found it efficient in preventing crime and violence during the historic automated elections in May 2010. (PIA) [top]
