Marañon, Alvarez hit road
as local campaign kicks off

Candidates in Negros Occidental led by Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. of the United Negros Alliance and his opponent Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. of the Nationalist People’s Coalition hit the road yesterday after the local campaign officially kicked off Saturday.

However, Provincial Elections Supervisor Wil Arceño yesterday cautioned against the blocktime radio programs that violate the COMELEC rule on allowable airtime for candidates, and against the illegal posting of campaign materials.

He said they have received verbal complaints against blocktime radio programs paid by local candidates. We are urging the filing of formal complaints, Arceño said.
