Mayor calls for peaceful, honest brgy and sk elections

BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan is calling for honest and peaceful elections in line with the start of the campaign period last Friday for the May 14 barangay and sanggunian kabataan (SK) elections.

"We are urging the candidates to avoid voicing baseless accusations and mudslinging against each other since the effects of these lingers on even when the elections are over," he stressed.

Domogan revealed that he was a victim of such accusations in the past elections and admitted that it took him awhile to forget about the hurtful and false things said about him by his opponents.

The Mayor also reminded the candidates that he cannot endorse anybody being the incumbent chief executive and that he must remain impartial.

Last Thursday, more than 2,500 of the city's barangay and SK candidates participated in the signing of a peace covenant spearheaded at the Baguio Cathedral as an act of commitment for an orderly, peaceful, honest and drug-free elections.

The signing followed a mass then a lecture by city elections supervisor John Paul Martin on what are and are not allowed during the elections.

He reported that there are 338 listed candidates for the position of barangay chairman and 1,787 for barangay kagawad while 222 filed for SK chairman and 194 for SK kagawad in the city.

Initiating the peace covenant were Comelec Baguio, Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, Department of the Interior and Local Government, Department of Education, National Youth Commission, Baguio Rep. Mark Go, Mayor Domogan and Baguio Vicariate Bishop Victor Bendico.

City Police Director Ramil Saculles also met with representatives of various security agencies operating in the city asking them for their full cooperation and assistance in keeping the city safe and peaceful during and after the elections.

He also told them to remind their personnel to strictly adhere to rules and regulations on wearing proper uniform, identification and carrying of firearms when they are on duty.

Saculles added that security personnel should also know those who are exempted and not from the Comelec gun ban during the election period and report to the police anybody in violation thereof.-gaby keith
