More peace
covenants inked

BY GILBERT BAYORAN

More candidates have signed covenants for honest and peaceful May 13 elections in Ilog, Talisay City and Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental.

Unopposed Mayor Isidro Zayco of Kabankalan, Talisay mayoralty bets Eric Saratan and Amelito Lizares, and Ilog candidates for mayor Genaro Rafael Alvarez and Benigno Gequillana led the signing of the covenants in their areas.

Senior Inspector Joshua Villasis, Ilog police chief, said the signing of the peace covenant at the Ilog multi-purpose gym yesterday was witnessed by local Church, military and police officials, and spearheaded by the Commission on Elections.

Incumbent Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez is running for vice-mayor of Ilog.

Saratan and other Talisay candidates also signed yesterday their peace covenant that renounced the use of threats and violence, force, intimidation and partisan armed groups, and other illegal means in the furtherance of their political interests.

On Monday, 12 of the 15 candidates of Kabankalan City led by Zayco also pledged to ensure peaceful elections in their city, by signing the peace covenant.

Signing of peace covenants were also held last week in EB Magalona, Moises Padilla, San Carlos and Bacolod.*GPB
