Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon yesterday said that with the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections over, winning and losing candidates should keep their cool and refrain from settling their differences through violence.
The advice came as more winning barangay captains in Negros Occidental were named yesterday.
Guanzon said that in politics there will always be winners and losers. “Those who lost by a small margin can file election protests or keep on doing good works in their barangays and run again next time,” she said.
“To the winners, be gracious to those who lost. Do not be vengeful, we are in a democracy where citizens are free to run for office,” Guanzon added.
Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said “Whatever the outcome of the election is, we should accept it.
“I have not heard of any protest coming, so we can say that the elections went very well. Everyone was free to vote and they’ve made their decision so we call on these barangay officials, especially from the SK (Sangguniang Kabataan), to attend the seminar that the Department of Interior and Local Government will sponsor before they take their oath”.
Lacson said he hopes the newly elected officials contribute to the upliftment of their respective communities.
