MANILA, Philippines- Hinikayat ni Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman George Garcia ang mga residente ng Maguindanao na gamitin ang anilang karapatan na bumoto sa  darating na plebisito sa probinsya.

“We call on Maguindanaoans, go out and vote. This is for your future, not ours, not for just one person,” hirit niya sa Maguindanao Plebiscite Coordinating Conference nitong Linggo sa Cotabato City.

Inihayag naman ng poll chief na umaasa siyang magiging mataas ang voter turnout sa Sept. 17 Maguindanao plebiscite.

“If the voter turnout was 85 percent in Maguindanao during the May 2022 elections… we hope that we will have 80 percent or more than 80 percent (for the plebiscite),” sabi ni Garcia.

“If you want to be split into two provinces, we will respect that. If you want to stay as a single province, we will also respect that. What is important is that your voices are heard,” dagdag niya.

Nanawagan din si Garcia sa lahat ng plebiscite stakeholders sa Maguindanao tona magkaisa upang masiguro na lahat ng rehistradong botante ay makaboboto.

“It is not enough that the ‘yes’ or the ‘no’ wins. We should be more concerned on is ensuring that people will be able to vote. Always, sovereignity resides in the people,” aniya.
