Comelec to tear down streamers, posters in residences, private firms

Davao City (24 April) -- Private establishments and residences in Davao del Norte mounting oversize campaign posters and streamers will soon receive notices from the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

Provincial election supervisor Atty. Marlon Casquejo in an interview bared intentions to tear down illegal sizes of campaign materials posted in residential areas and private establishments.

He intends implement this after his office has launched a clean-up of illegal posters in common poster areas.

"We can't enter and tear down those in private residences and establishments so we have to send them notices," he said.

COMELEC Davao del Norte is due this week to send notices to owners of private establishments and residences especially in Panabo where it has found to have a number of oversize campaign posters and streamers illegally displayed.

During the candidates briefing held on the first day of the local campaign period, Atty. Casquejo said the Fair Elections Act allows only "cartolina" size posters displayed in common poster areas.

He told candidates that campaign streamers are only allowed during their meetings and rallies and hanging such with no cause at all is prohibited.

But Casquejo was glad over the presence of common poster areas in all municipalities and cities in the province.

He pegged compliance to policies on campaign posters at 88 percent noting presence of oversize posters and streamers displayed in private establishments and residences.

He also noted peaceful campaign sorties of political parties in the province. "The campaign has been fairly going on. I have yet to hear black propaganda

Meanwhile, COMELEC is set to met with the provincial commands of the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to discuss the current peace and order situation of the province. (PIA XI/JMDA) [top]
