Lanao Sur police ready to implement total gun ban for Barangay, SK elections

by Apipa P. Bagumbaran

Islamic City of Marawi (23 September) -- Police authorities in Lanao del Sur is all set to enforce the total gun ban to secure the synchronized Barangay ang Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls on October 25.

Police Provincial Director Superintendent Cosanie Derogongan said they are still waiting for the rules and regulations on the bearing, carrying and transporting of firearms as well as the employment of bodyguards in relation to the October 25 synchronized elections.

He said they will strictly enforce the gun ban once they receive the implementing guidelines.

In its Resolution 9019, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) directed the police and the military to implement a nationwide gun ban during the election period which will run from September 25, 2010 until November 10, 2010.

During this period, the carrying of firearms and the use of bodyguards by candidates will be prohibited, unless otherwise assigned by the Commission, upon proper application.

According to the COMELEC, they will implement the total gun ban again because it was proven successful in reducing the number of election-related violence during the May 10 automated national and local elections. (PIA-Marawi) [top]
