Clergy urged to campaign
openly in 2016 elections

Dilaab Foundation Inc. executive director, Fr. Carmelo Diola, called on the Dumaguete clergy to go down to the grassroots level and openly campaign on a house-to-house basis for people to use their conscience in voting during the May 2016 elections.

Dilaab is a church-based organization in Cebu that launched the “I Vote Good” campaign and while it is not endorsing any particular candidate, it believes that the Church must be actively involved in the upcoming presidential and national elections.

With only about 11 months away to next year's polls, Diola stressed priests and Church-based organizations are encouraged to go on a house-to-house campaign “urging and trying to form the consciences of the people, by calling on them not to sell their votes in whatever form”.moremoremore
