Nat’l campaign starts,
Comelec airs warning

The campaign period for national candidates and party-list groups officially starts today and the Commission on Elections is reminding their representatives in Negros Occidental to strictly follow campaign rules, especially regarding posters.

Negros Occidental Provincial Election Supervisor Will Arceño said candidates must place their posters only in designated common poster areas.

“Violation of Comelec rules, particularly on the size and location of propaganda, automatically attaches criminal liability to the candidate. Thus, I urge candidates to read and study all pertinent rules and regulations regarding campaign and expense monitoring to avoid surprises," Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said yesterday.
