MANILA, Philippines – The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) has established and strengthened regional safety offices for the safety and security of members of the media ahead of the midterm elections.

The NUJP said on Monday that the attacks against media practitioners are ‘unusually high’ during election period in the country.


From one safety unit in the National Capital Region, the NUJP has extended its reach to the rest of Luzon, Visayas, eastern and western Mindanao.

The group appointed a media safety officer in every regional office who will be on-call 24-7 and can be reached via the following hotline numbers:
