No election hotspot, only 54 areas under watch list in Region 8

Tacloban City (May 9) -- No municipality or city in Region 8 has been declared as election hotspots, Senior Superintendent Manuel Cubillo, spokesman of the Philippine National Police Region 8 said.

SSupt. Cubillo however, disclosed that 54 areas in Eastern Visayas are under election watch list. Among these areas are six (6) in Leyte; one (1) in Southern Leyte; twenty-one (21) in Samar; eight (8) in Eastern Samar; and seventeen (17) in Northern Samar.

These areas in Region 8 are being closely monitored by the Philippine National Police in order to prevent untoward incidents during the May 10 general elections, SSupt. Cubillo said.

He explained that some areas were included in the watch list due to a history of violence in the past elections. The three Samar provinces are the usual areas in the Region, he added.

SSupt. Cubillo did not divulge the specific areas to prevent undue fear to the public.

The directive of Police Region 8 Director Rey Lanada is for the police provincial and station commanders to strengthen their security preparations for clean, honest and orderly polls.

A total of 500 election watch list areas of immediate concern and seventeen (17) areas of immediate concern are now being monitored by the Philippine National Police, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Comelec. (PIA 8) [top]
