for Barangay, SK polls

Some voting centers in Negros Oriental have been transferred in time for the Barangay & Sangguniang Kabataan Elections next month, a Commission on Elections official confirmed Wednesday.

Lawyer Eliseo Labaria, acting provincial election supervisor of Negros Oriental, said the Comelec central office had earlier approved the transfer for various reasons.

Labaria, however, could not immediately say how many voting centers were affected by the transfer.

“Some voting centers had to be transferred for varied reasons, such as lack of space due to an increase in registered voters or for public safety, such as having been damaged by a storm,” he said.

Labaria cited as an example is the voting center at Tamao Elementary School in Barangay Tamao, Jimalalud, which was moved to Cabang Elementary School in Barangay Cabang of the same town.

He assured that registered voters in the affected areas will be informed of the movement so they can easily find their assigned new voting centers.

The barangay officials have been informed of the transfers, he added.

Meanwhile, Comelec Chairperson George Erwin Garcia will soon announce the final date of the conduct of BSKE in Negros Oriental.

He was scheduled to hold over the weekend a command conference in Negros Oriental with the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the Philippine National Police, the Phlippine Coast Guard, and other line agencies in preparation for the BSKE, Comelec Regional Director Lionel Marco Castillano told the media.

He said Garcia was expected to share the results of the public hearings held here in June on the proposed deferment of the BSKE in Negros Oriental that was sought by some national officials to give more time for government security forces to map out a tight contingency plan to avert violence, threat and intimidation following the March 4 assassination of Gov. Roel Degamo. (Judy F. Partlow/PNA)
