Manila, Philippines – Wala pang idinedeklarang ‘area of concern’ ang Comelec para sa 2022 National at Local Elections.

Ito ang pahayag ni Comelec spokesman James Jimenez bilang paglilinaw sa mga kumakalat na idineklara nila ang Basilan bilang “hotly contested” area.

“Hotly contested, is not really our language. No, we don’t normally say hotly contested. We say area of concern, or we say area of immediate concern, or we say that an area is under Comelec control,” paliwanag ni Jimenez.

“Hotly contested seems to be a characterization of the political landscape there rather than a description of the security situation. The security situation is what we refer to when we’re talking about areas of concern.”

Punto pa nito, ang pagdedeklara nito ay isinasagawa ng security committee sa Maynila.

Mismong national committee naman ang maglalabas ng final list ng areas of concern. RNT/FGDC
