Posted on

DAVAO CITY (May 12)- Banaybanay Mayor Ada Lopez has decried the alleged harassment done by Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Regional Director Atty. Remlane Tambuang against police personnel who were safekeeping the Barangay Elections.

She has asked President Rodrigo Duterte to intervene and appealed for public vigilance for a safe and orderly conduct of the Barangay Elections on Monday, May 14.

“Mga kaigsoonan nako sa Banaybanay particularly sa barangay Piso, para sa inyong kasayuran naay nahitabo na commotion. Ganina lng putukan og pusil tungod sa election, normal na mo responde ang atong kasundaluhan og kapulisan ang problema ma low morale na ang atong mga peace keeping officers nato kay gisukmatan sila sa Regional Election Director sa COMELEC na si Atty Remlane Tambuang ang mga pulis intawn kay ngano mag patrolya daw.”

“Ingon daw sya hangtud siya pa ang regional director daw sa COMELEC walay mataas sa iyaha…,question, siya pa ba ang Regional Director sa COMELEC XI karon? Sugod karong adlawa transfer na sya sa Region XII, buot pasabot wala na syay karapatan para sukmatan ang atong mga kapulisan na maoy nagapatuman sa kalinawan sa atong lugar. Matud pa sa atong mga kapulisan mintras naa pa si Atty Tambuang diri sa Region XI, particular sa Banaybanay, basin daghan og mamatay apil ang mga inosenteng tao” she added.

Lopez said she has no other recourse but defend the public and the police officers. “I, for one has a death threat so dito ko dinadaan sa social media ang lahat ng panawagan para sa ating mahal na Presidente Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. I am begging for your help. We cannot do anything if there is a person like Atty. Tambuang who is powerful and who have everything—money, goons and guns para lang manalo ang kanyang dalawang kapatid na tumatakbo sa pagka Kapitan. As a Mayor & mother of Banaybanay, I would to ask your immediate response on this.
