Comelec to candidates: Remove illegal posters or else…

THE Commission on Elections advised candidates to dismantle and remove posters and tarpaulins that do not comply with election rules.

Laywer Eric Oganiza, acting provincial election supervisor of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Pangasinan said notices of violation will be sent to candidates warning of legal action if they do not dismantle their illegal campaign posters.

He clarified that public utility vehicles are allowed to carry posters provided the sizes conform to the authorized size by the Comelec.

Oganiza also advised candidates to direct operators of their roving trompas to control and moderate volume in playing their campaign jingles.

He said he received complaints from irate residents in many towns who are roused rom their sleep or naps by the loud playing of campaign jingles.

“Voters get irritated when, in the middle of their deep slumber, suddenly a loud noise coming from a candidate’s roving vehicle playing his campaign jingle wakes them,” Oganiza, who has just assumed his post on March 28, said.

 “This is a possible minus point to the candidate,” he said.(PhilStar Wire Service)
