MANILA, Philippines- Naitala ng Philippine National Police (PNP) sa kasalukuyan ang 14 validated election-related incidents sa taong ito, na mas mababa kumpara sa 133 rna naitala sa 2016 national elections.

Sinabi ni PNP spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo na ang 14 validated election-related incidents naitala hanggang nitong Miyerkules.

Ma mababa ito kumpara sa 133 validated election-related incidents na naitala noong 2016 maging sa 60 validated election-related incidents noong 2019 midterm elections, base pa kay Fajardo.

“If we compare the 14 validated election-related incidents as of May 4, this is way below the recorded validated election incidents in 2016 which recorded 133 validated election-related incidents. In 2019, we recorded 60 validated election incidents,” pahayag ni Fajardo nitong Biyernes.

“So we are hoping that the 14 recorded validated election incidents as of May 4 will not increase as we see the coming May 9 elections,” dagdag pa niya.

Ang kaunting validated election-related incidents, ayon kay Fajardo, ay “good development on the part of the security forces.”

“If you see the breakdown of the incidents, the majority of the incidents are only minor incidents comprising of grave threats, life threats, and some physical injuries,” aniya pa.

“We are hoping that the security coverage laid down by security forces will be effective in monitoring these incidents and we will not be foreseeing any violent election-related incidents three days prior to the conduct of elections this coming Monday,” patuloy pa ni Fajardo. RNT/SA
