“We will support the request of the Commission on Election (Comelec XI), every now and then they are calling ( for a meeting),” he said, adding that the poll body already handed to them the guidelines.

Ang ginagawa natin (what we are doing is) we are preparing for elections while the gun ban is already in place. That will be continuous,” he further said.
