NegOr ‘poll hotspot' tag
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The Commission on Elections and the Philippine National Police downplayed the Negros Oriental tag as an “election hotspot” in the Philippines, in the May 9 synchronized elections.

This comes as the Comelec, PNP, Armed Forces of the Philippines and other law enforcement agencies convened at the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office to formally activate the Provincial Joint Security Coordinating Council in time for the mid-term polls.

Newly-designated PNP regional director for Region 18, Chief Supt. Conrado Capa, was present for the PJSCC activation and was briefed on the current peace and order situation in Negros Oriental. .moremoremore
