Some politicians in Aklan were on their feet following voters even at the office of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) until the registration ended last October 31st.
Even the following day, 1st of November, the All Saints’ Day, which is an important day for Catholic Filipinos, did not slow them down.
A number of provincial and municipal political candidates even campaigned at the cemeteries.
On that same day, some parts of Aklan received what was dubbed as a “blessing” as free water, noodles, and fans – with pictures of candidates for the 2013 midterm elections- was given out.
These free stuffs even reached the Municipality of Malay.
This had drawn varied reactions. While some were happy with what they received, some responded to it with raised eyebrows.
Meanwhile the COMELEC has previously announced not to use the All Saints’ Day for an early campaign.
