Pangasinan PNP prepares for 2022 elections
JANUARY- MAY CAMPAIGN PERIOD
THE Pangasinan Police Provincial Office (PPPO) will soon identify election hotspots in the province once it receives the final list of candidates vying for various elective posts in the May 2022 polls.
PPPO director P/Col. Richmond Tadina on Monday, November 22, told the Sangguniang Panlalawigan potential hotspots will be determined by reported intense political rivalries in past elections between candidates and families and are seeking posts in next year’s elections.
Towards this end, Tadina said there are 41police officers identified with relatives vying for elective posts will be reassigned to other posts.
In addition, he said a chief of police who already spent two years in a particular town or city, and those rank and file has served for 10 years will be considered by the Police Regional Office for reshuffling or transfer to prevent influence in the upcoming national and local elections.
Meanwhile, Tadina in a separate forum said they are waiting for the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to furnish them with the final copy of the list of candidates before determining areas to be declared under hotspot.
“With the list of candidates from Comelec, we would be able to identify hotspot areas based on the previous elections where there were intense political rivalries,” he said. (Jerick Pasiliao)
