Police monitor no election-related incident on first day of campaign

THE FIRST day of the campaign for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Election (BSKE) 2023 candidates concluded without incident.

Captain Hazel Tuazon, the Davao City Police Office spokesperson, said they monitored no election-related incident based on the reports of all the station commanders on the ground.

“For the first day, peaceful and normal po,” Tuazon said.

She hoped the trend would continue in the lead-up to the Oct. 30 elections. 

The official urged the candidates to campaign properly and avoid causing trouble. She also asked the supporters to practice discipline, follow Comelec rules, and maintain cleanliness. 

“Those candidates, you should reprimand your people. If we want to be peaceful, discipline is needed,” she added.

Meanwhile, the  Commission on Elections XI revealed that some candidates were found to have violated the campaign rules.

In the assessment, acting regional director Atty. Gay Enumerables said some candidates and their supporters installed campaign materials outside the designated common poster areas. 

Enumerables is set to issue a show cause order against the candidates to answer for the violations.

Accordingly, the Comelec will also launch “Operation Baklas,” three days from now if nothing happens, so they themselves will tear down posters outside the designated areas. 

“There is no time limit for campaigning, as long as it does not disturb other residents,” she added.

The acting regional director encouraged all voters to follow all the regulations to ensure a seamless campaign, which ends on Oct. 28, 2023.
