Kalibo, Aklan (6 May) -- The 12th IB Philippine Army based in Camp Jizmundo, Libas, Banga, Aklan, has started deployment of its troops to various municipalities in Aklan to help maintain peace and order for the May 10, 2010 automated elections here.

The troops, according to Capt. Ricardo Villaruel, Civil Military Officer of the 12th IB, will be deployed in teams to the municipalities of Libacao, Madalag, Ibajay, Nabas and Tangalan.

The deployment is in response to the request of the Philippine National Police here for the augmentation of their forces in the said areas.

The municipality of Libacao, which is a hinterland municipality, will have 3 teams while Madalag will have 2 teams. Ibajay, in the western part of the province, will have 2 teams, Nabas, 2; and Tangalan, 2.

"Each team is composed of 9 personnel," Capt. Villaruel said.

The teams are composed of Army regulars and CAFGU members.

For its part, the Aklan Police Provincial Office will be deploying one police officer each in the areas, according to PO2 Nida Gregas, APPO Public Information Officer.

The army deployment, according to Villaruel, starts 5 days before the May 10 elections and the teams will be back to base 5 days after the electoral activity.

The 12th IB, headed by Lt. Col. Henry G. Dar, INF (GSC) Commanding Officer, will also be providing Election Monitoring Area Commanders in the northern and southern parts of Aklan. (PIAVenus G. Villanueva) [top]
