‘Prayer power’

Imus, Cavite - Authorities will use the "prayer power," aside from tight watch, in keeping elections in "hotspot" Cavite province safe, orderly, fair and tangible (SOFT).

This developed as the Provincial Commission on Elections (Comelec), Police and other concerned authorities, including the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) and some other religious groups, have expressed their readiness for the elections on Monday (May 13) with their plans and activities set in the province's six cities and 17 municipalities.

Superintendent Dionicio C. Borromeo, Police Provincial Office deputy director, said that the "power of prayer" will be used during the automated voting and counting day itself "to keep God's peace, love and care in everyone's heart."

Cavite, a province with a voting population of 1,789,438, the second biggest in the country, was placed by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) as one of the 17 "immediate areas of concern" or "hotspots" during the election period due to some prevailing intense political rivalries and activities.

The Comelec under Lawyer Arnulfo H. Pioquinto, the PPO led by Senior Supt. Alexander D.G. Rafael and other concerned agencies are doing everything to keep the elections peaceful, safe, fair and protected for everyone. (Anthony Giron)
