There are four more days to go before the May 2013 midterm elections.
However, candidates in Aklan are still competing in posting more campaign materials, while those posted in non-common poster areas have not yet been removed.
This is despite the notice that the COMELEC has sent to the candidates whose campaign posters were placed just about everywhere.
The Comelec’s instruction to take out illegal posters, particularly those placed near the schools where the pollings will be held doesn’t seem to have bothered them.
The reason why the commission was forced to do it their selves, said Mr. Getulio Esto, of the Provincial Comelec Office.
Despite the office’s demand letter, posters along the main roads and schools can still be seen.
An illegal posting is a violation against Comelec Resolution No. 9615 or the regulation of the proper campaign paraphernalia and common poster areas.
