PIA Press Release

Man hit as Biliran rally continues

Tacloban City (May 13) -- One rallyist in Naval, Biliran was hit by an unidentified gunman on or about 11:00 o?clock in the evening of May 12.

Sketchy reports arriving at the PIA Regional Office showed that as the rallyists continued their vigil at the capitol compound last night, in protest of the election results in Biliran, a group of men allegedly brought the PCOS machines outside the Capitol to a waiting pick-up type vehicle using the backdoor of the compound.

The rallyists who were quick to note the incident, rushed to intercept the PCOS machines and held back the unidentified men.

The incident resulted in the shooting of one of the rallyists who was hit at the lower part of his breast. The victim is now being treated at a hospital.

Meanwhile, the rallyists allegedly are increasing in number from 4,000 yesterday to 6,000 today.

It would be recalled that supporters of defeated candidates started to band together yesterday to demonstrate their demand for manual recounting the ballots in Biliran.

The winning candidates for the seats in the provincial government of Biliran and for the lone district of Biliran representative were already proclaimed by the Biliran Board of Canvassers the other day.

Biliran Governor Rogelio Espina is the congressman-elect while former congressman Gerardo Espina Jr., his brother, was proclaimed as the governor-elect.

The Biliran Provincial Police continuous to monitor the rally in order to ensure the maintenance of peace and order in the Province particularly at the Provincial Capitol where the rally is being held. (PIA 8) [top]
