Palawan Daily News - - Front Page - By Kia Jo­hanna Lamo

Com­mis­sion on Elec­tion (Com­Elec) opened fil­ing of can­di­dacy from Oc­to­ber 11-12 and Oc­to­ber 1517, 2018.

How­ever, as of Oc­to­ber 11, 2018, City Com­elec Of­fi­cer, Fernin­dand Ber­mejo said that there are no can­di­dates who filed dur­ing the day.

With the up­com­ing elec­tion, Ber­mejo re­minded vot­ers to wisely and choose the right leader for the city. “Si­nasabi ko lagi na kung pip­ili ka ng lider na mag­sisilbi sa atin, da­pat para kang pumip­ili ng doc­tor na oopera sa puso natin,” he said.

The City Com­elec of­fi­cer also said that ev­ery­one’s vote is pow­er­ful that it will have a

great im­pact to the lives of the com­mu­nity.

“What is in­volved here is your life, our lives, sino man ang mag­ing lider, maapek­tuhan ang buhay natin sa kanyang pa­mu­muno, so whether dalahin niya tayo sa kasagana­han o sa kahi­ra­pan,” he added.

He re­it­er­ated that wise vot­ing is al­ways the key.

“Da­pat main­gat sa pag boto kasi dito nakasalalay ang buhay natin,” he said.

He also said that the peo­ple must choose a “Ser­vant Leader” not a lead who will slave his realm.

“Da­pat ang piliin natin ay ser­vant leader, leader na paglil­ingku­ran tayo, hindi yung tayo ang maglil­ingkod sa kanya. Lead­er­ship is not lord­ship, ang pagig­ing lider ay hindi pagig­ing Diyos, magkaiba yun e,” Ber­mejo said.

The com­elec also warned not to pa­tron­ize vote buy­ing, be­cause vote buy­ing equates weak can­di­dacy.

“wag tayo bibili ng boto, kasi yung namim­ili ng boto, mahina ang kan­di­datura niyan. Yung bud­get na gi­na­mit niya pam­bili ng boto, dyan niya rin kukunin sa ka­ban ng bayan,” he stated.

Ber­mejo added that the city com­elec em­pow­ers their ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness cam­paign through tri-me­dia in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion.
