In Koronadal, Comelec launches ‘Operation Baklas.’
CITY OF KORONADAL – On Tuesday, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Task Force Baklas began dismantling illegal campaign materials.
Maleiha Usman, a city election officer, said the operation began after the national candidates were given notice lately.
“I believe even local candidates have copies of the notice notifying them of their alleged compliance with Comelec Resolution No.10730, the norms and regulations in implementing our fair election laws,” Usman remarked.
Because the national candidates’ campaign period began on February 8, the city election office is currently focusing on their campaign posters.
“We haven’t covered our local candidates yet because their campaign time hasn’t started yet and they aren’t candidates per,” Usman explained.
The Department of Interior and Local Government, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, the Philippine National Police, and the Department of Public Works and Highways are among the Task Force Baklas’ collaborators, according to her (DPWH).
All of the agencies came together with Comelec – Koronadal to push for the task force’s establishment, as specified by the Comelec resolution.
“We agreed to divide the group and devise a clustering scheme; each cluster has specified barangays, and we sent off our squad for operation this morning,” Usman stated.
The city of Koronadal is divided into 27 barangays.
According to Usman, the city Comelec office expects to finish removing unlawful posters ahead of schedule.
“At first, the task force planned to run ‘Operation Baklas’ for a week since we expected a large number of posters, but I was merely informed by the team that our roads and even trees had been cleaned by illegal election propaganda,” Usman added.
Usman also reminded the candidates that campaign posters should not be larger than two by three feet.
Candidates can also put up campaign posters on private property, as long as they are within the allowed size limits and with the owner’s permission, she said.
“We will pursue another ‘Operation Baklas’ for that reason, as the local candidates’ campaign cycle begins on March 25,” she stated.
