Comelec deploys more cops in 4 Central Visayas villages


CEBU CITY — The Commission on Elections in Central Visayas (Comelec-7) has ordered the deployment of more policemen in four barangays where some candidates are facing disqualification cases during the proclamation of winners.

Lawyer Lionel Marco Castillano said the need to have more policemen in polling centers in four barangays in Central Visayas is necessary to prevent any disorder that might arise from supporters of candidates, who cannot be proclaimed due to pending disqualification cases at the Comelec.


These barangays are Buanoy in Balamban town, west Cebu; Valladolid in Carcar City, south Cebu: Maguikay, Mandaue City; and Cancawas in San Jose, Negros Oriental.


Each provincial election supervisor has been directed not to proclaim candidates with disqualification cases if they win in the manual counting, as their cases are still under review by the Comelec.
