PCOS machines in Biliran now at PCOS hub; tense situation eased

Tacloban City (May 14) -- No less than Philippine National Police Region 8 Director Rey Lanada went to Naval, Biliran on May 13 in the morning in order to talk to the leaders of the rallyists at the Biliran Provincial Capitol.

After the talk, the Philippine Information Agency learned that the PCOS machines at the Biliran Capitol are on the way to the PCOS hub in Tacloban with the Comelec representatives and in convoy were Director Lanada and some PNP members together with the leaders of the rallyists in convoy, also.

It was learned that the leaders of the rallyists requested the PNP Director that they also follow the cars carrying the PCOS machines to make sure that they are really brought to the PCOS Hub.

Late in the afternoon of May 13, the Philippine Information Agency who were waiting for the convoy to arrive, witnessed the arrival of the convoy and the counting of the PCOS machine which were brought in from Biliran.

The Philippine National Police in the Region said that the situation in Biliran is under control and in fact, no police augmentation was done believing that the Biliran Provincial Police Office can handle the situation.

It would be recalled that after the proclamation of the winning candidates particularly Governor Roger Espina as the elected congressman, the supporters of incumbent Congressman Chong demanded for the holding of manual count and this demand was manifested through a rally in front of the provincial capitol.

Allegedly, the rallyists did not want the PCOS machines be removed from the provincial capitol.

However, with the presence of PNP Director Lanada, cooler heads prevailed and the PCOS machines were safely returned to the Comelec PCOS hub in Tacloban. (PIA 8) [top]
