DAGUPAN CITY, Philippines-–Police have identified nine towns and three cities in Pangasinan as potential hot spots in connection with the May 13 elections.
Senior Superintendent Marlou Chan, provincial police director, identified the areas of concern as the towns of Bolinao, Infanta, Agno, Urbiztondo, Bugallon, Malasiqui, Rosales, Balungao and San Manuel and the cities of Alaminos, Dagupan and San Carlos.
“These are the specific [towns] and cities where political developments are being watched day to day,” Chan told reporters here on Thursday.
He said these areas were identified not only because of intense political rivalries but because of violent incidents related to the 2007 and 2010 elections.
