MANILA, Philippines — A Commission on Elections (Comelec) executive on Monday decried a viral photo that shows a dog with an election campaign sticker on its body.

In a tweet, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez slammed the act and urged politicians to spare animals from politicking.


“Seriously. Isn’t it enough that politicking has already trashed the country you claim to love, you’ve got to harass dogs too?” Jimenez wrote.

“Leave. Dogs. Alone,” he added with a hashtag #VoterEd.

Over the weekend, the photo went viral on social media.

The photo shows the campaign sticker of a Metro Manila mayoralty bet attached to the dog’s body.

Candidates running in the May midterm elections are being warned by the Comelec to strictly follow the campaign rules or face sanctions or disqualification.  /muf
