2 other M’nao cities, eight towns in list of ‘hotspots’

ASIDE from Cagayan de Oro, two other Mindanao cities and eight towns ended up in Camp Crame’s list of election hotspots.

National Police Director General Oscar Albayalde said the list also includes the cities of Pagadian in Zamboanga del Sur and Marawi City, and the towns of Hadji Mohammad Ajul, Lantawan and Tipo-Tipo in Basilan, Sultan Dumalondong in Lanao del Sur, and Mamasapano, Shariff Aguak, Shariff Saydona Mustapha and Datu Unsay in Maguindanao.

Except for Pagadian and Cagayan de Oro, the “hotspots” were placed under Category III or areas that had experienced electionelated violence, Albayalde said at a press conference.

Cagayan de Oro’s police director, Senior Supt. Nelson Aganon, protested the hotspot tag on the city. He argued that Cagayan de Oro should not have been categorized as an election hotspot because it has no history of electionelated violence  and it has no insurgency problems.

In Luzon, considered “hotspots’ are the towns of Daraga in Albay where Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe, a candidate for mayor, was shot dead on Dec. 22 last year; Sudipen and Balawan in La Union; Jones in Isabela; Lemery in Batangas; Roxas in Oriental Mindoro; and Balud and Dimasalang in Masbate.

No area in the Visayas was included in the Camp Crame’s list of “hotspots”. (Mindanews)
