TO HELP guarantee a reasonable and tranquil race, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) 7 will be open for 24 hours from May 11 to 14 to address any race related occurrences.
DILG 7 Local Government Operations Officer Kym Albrando asked people in general to answer to experts any infringement of the principles set by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) as to the direct of the decisions.
"We do get reports about specific infringement, for example, vote purchasing, drinking while the alcohol boycott is essentially or supporters expelling the blurbs of their hopefuls' adversaries. These are basic objections particularly on the eve of the decisions," she said amid the gathering composed by the Association of Government Information Officers (Agio) on Tuesday, April 30.
These demonstrations, Albrando stated, could be accounted for to any DILG field office, to the national phone crisis numbers 911 or straightforwardly to the Philippine National Police.
Grumblings may likewise be accounted for through the DILG 7's 24-hour hotlines, 255-7330 and 253-5481.
The reports will at that point be approved with the assistance of the police.
Two weeks before the May 13 decisions, Albrando said the DILG has not gotten any report on race related occurrences since the crusade time frame began last March 29.
"At the DILG, our undertaking is predominantly checking. Up until this point, we have not gotten any report on decision related episodes. Perhaps in different districts there were at that point reports gotten yet none in Central Visayas," she said.
Albrando approached the voters to regard the sacredness of the decision by not pitching their votes to specific applicants and by paying attention to the alcohol and firearm boycott.
"When we pick who to vote in favor of, I trust our decisions will be moored on the DILG's three M's: Matino, Mahusay, and Maasahan (ethically upstanding, able and trustworthy)," she said.
She likewise reminded officeholder hopefuls not to exploit their present positions.
"For example, they are not permitted to join the dissemination of payouts under the projects of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. For officeholder authorities, they ought to be reasonable in issuing licenses to hold battle energizes, even to their adversaries," Albrando said. (WBS)
