ILOILO City – To­day starts the five-month elec­tion pe­riod – Jan. 13 to June 12 – for the May 13, 2019 midterm elec­tions. Thus to­day starts, too, the na­tion­wide elec­tion gun ban, ac­cord­ing to the Com­mis­sion on Elec­tions (Com­elec). The gun ban seeks to pre­vent un­law­ful el­e­ments such as pri­vate armed groups and gun-for-hire groups from in­tim­i­dat­ing, in­jur­ing or killing any­one dur­ing the elec­tion sea­son.
