Blocktimers warned vs.
The Commission on Elections in Negros Oriental yesterday warned broadcast stations to observe the mandatory airtime allocated for candidates and other poll regulations during the campaign period, or they will be sanctioned.
Dumaguete elections officer Jerome Brillantes said even the management of radio and television stations, and political candidates paying for the blocktime, could be charged if found guilty of violating the Fair Elections Act and other poll resolutions.
He said the Comelec will not hesitate to file charges against blocktimers if they persist in violating the law, that states that a local candidate is only allowed an aggregate of 90 minutes campaign airtime in all broadcast stations, from March 29 to midnight of May 11.
