PDP exec to Comelec, police: Stop vote buying in Camiguin

THE chairman of the administration PDP-Laban in Camiguin over the weekend called on the Commission on Elections (Comelec) and the police to put in place measures to prevent massive vote-buying activities in the island province during the election period that started on Saturday until May 21.

Dr. Manuel Jaudian sent a letter to the Comelec regional and provincial offices, and   the Camiguin police to ask that checkpoints be set up in the five towns of Camiguin in order to stop “operators” from distributing political funds for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.

“Camiguin politics is known for (political) harassments and vote buying. It was done in many elections, and it was glaringly done in the May 2016 elections…,” reads part of Jaudian’s letter.

He cited an incident that supposedly took place during the election of directors of the Camiguin Electric Cooperative in March when a political group allegedly distributed “freebies” to barangay officials and cooperative members “in the amount of P200” each to influence them into voting for favored candidates.
