IPPO set to hold Peace Covenant Signing

Camp Francisco U. Sumagaysay, Sr., STA BARBARA, ILOILO, March 11 -- Iloilo Police Provincial Office, together with the Provincial Commission on Elections and the Philippine Army, is set to formalize the Provincial Peace Covenant signing on Saturday, March 12.

The 29 candidates who filed their candidacy for Iloilo’s Governor, Vice-Governor, District Representatives and Board Members are expected to attend the peace covenant signing to be held at IPPO Grounds, Camp Francisco Sumagaysay in Sta. Barbara, Iloilo.

The activity will be preceded by a mass at 9:00 o’clock in the morning to be officiated by Monsignor Meliton Oso, the chairperson of Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) and Director of the Archdiocese of Jaro’s Social Action Center (JSAC).

“This peace covenant signing is one way that we will be able to extract the commitment from our candidates to support us in making the National and Local Elections peaceful and orderly,” said IPPO OIC Police Senior Superintendent Roderick Augustus Alba.

Meanwhile, the towns of Iloilo have already formalized their local peace covenant signing with only six towns remaining.

These towns include Guimbal, Maasin, Oton, San Miguel, Tigbauan and Zarraga.  They are scheduled to have their covenant signing before March 25, 2016, the start of the campaign period for local candidates.#
