Un­der the covenant and in­tegrity pledge, the can­di­dates swore to abide by the tenets of the Con­sti­tu­tion, elec­tion laws, rules and reg­u­la­tions, and re­spect the sanc­tity of the elec­toral ex­er­cise through their words and ac­tions for hon­est, or­derly, and peace­ful elec­tions.

The can­di­dates fur­ther vowed not to em­ploy any form of vi­o­lence, force or threat that may im­pair, im­pede or un­duly in­flu­ence the free ex­er­cise of peo­ple’s rights of suf­frage.

Fur­ther, the can­di­dates promised “to en­sure the prompt, ac­cu­rate re­port­ing and dis­clo­sure of cam­paign-re­lated ex­penses,” stress­ing that they “will not of­fer or give bribes or gifts to cor­rupt the in­tegrity of the demo­cratic process.”

In or­der to prop­erly gain the peo­ple’s man­date, the can­di­dates also pledged “to re­spect the norms of con­duct ex­pected of pub­lic ser­vants” and “com­mit to run a clean cam­paign, ob­serve fair­ness, com­mon de­cency, hon­esty and good faith.”

They stressed that they “shall fight dis­crim­i­na­tion in all forms, pro­mote gen­der sen­si­tiv­ity dur­ing the cam­paign and not tol­er­ate any form of vi­o­lence against women in pol­i­tics.— JTD
