 for premature campaigning

The Commission on Election issued show cause orders against three aspirants in the Barangay &  Sangguniang Kabataan Elections  for alleged premature campaigning.

Lawyer Eliseo Labaria, acting Comelec provincial election supervisor, told the media on Thursday that the respondents were given three days upon receipt of the order to answer the complaint.

This brings to five the total number of BSKE aspirants who had been issued show cause orders because of premature campaigning – two from Bais, and one each from Valencia, Bayawan, and Dumaguete.

The latest show cause order was forwarded on Thursday to a candidate-aspirant in Bayawan City, about 100 kms. south of this city.

Of the five, only the Dumaguete respondent is a barangay candidate while the rest are SK aspirants.

Labaria did not elaborate on the details of the complaints filed against the three aspirants but noted that premature campaigning is the number one reason for the issuance of a show cause order.

The campaign period starts on Oct. 19.

The Comelec earlier said premature campaigning constitutes an election offense that carries a penalty of one to six years imprisonment and/or disqualification.

Meanwhile, Labaria said more than 2,000 teachers from the Department of Education would be deployed to the 557 barangays in Negros Oriental for the Oct. 30 BSKE.

They have completed the training conducted by the Comelec on the processes of manual voting, and other tasks and functions, he said. (Judy F. Partlow/PNA)
