BTAC, geared up for Baranggay and SK Elections

Written by: Jay-ar Arante

The Boracay Tourists Assistance Center is ready to ensure the security of the island on the coming Baranggay and SK Elections.

According to Police Community Relation Officer PO3 Christopher Mendoza, they already have preparations just like what they did during the National Elections last May.

Police personnel will be deployed to schools in Boracay where the polls will be held.

Mendoza said that they will be more observant and will beef up the security since the PCOS Machines won’t be used.

The Officer added they will also strictly implement the Comelec’s gun ban which will start 30 days from the election date.

The Comelec has earlier said that, due to shortage of time and funds, the process will be conducted manually.

Meanwhile, Comelec Malay said that they too are ready for the elections on October and had coordinated with the police force for the security of the Municipality of Malay and the Island of Boracay.
