24 BEI members
face poll complaint

BY CARLA GOMEZ
Complaints for alleged irregularities in the 2010 polls filed only now against 24 Escalante teachers will not stop the Commission on Elections from including them as members of Board of Election Inspectors in the May polls, Provincial Elections Supervisor Wil Arceño said yesterday.

Arceño said the teachers only received subpoenas on the complaints filed against them before the Escalante Prosecutor’s Office on Tuesday, the day before they were to come to Bacolod to undergo COMELEC training to serve as BEI members in the May 13 polls.

The question is why were the complaints filed only now, almost three years later, just as the BEI training was to start, he asked.

He said the COMELEC will allow the 24 teachers to continue to serve as BEI members in May as there is no ruling that they committed any violations in 2010, just complaints.*CPG
