Comelec launches educational video on campaign violations

By |

MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has released an educational video showing examples of campaign violations and urging the public to report them to the poll body.

The two-minute video features “Boy Bawal,” Comelec’s “poster boy against campaign violations,” and Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. The video was produced by the Education and Information Department (EID), Comelec said in a statement Monday.

In the video, “Boy Bawal” comically goes around the neighborhood looking for campaign violations such as oversized posters and illegally placed election propaganda and placing a big “bawal” sign on the prohibited election material.

Near the end of the video, Brillantes calls on the public to report all campaign violations that they see to the Comelec.

“A request has been sent to all networks for the airing of the ‘Boy Bawal Ad’ as part of the Comelec Space and Time for the May 13, 2013 Elections to be utilized exclusively for public information dissemination on election related-concerns,” Comelec said in a statement.

The video is part of Comelec’s initiative for citizen’s participation in reporting potential campaign violations.

The public may also tweet any violations they see to @Comelec and using the hastag #SumbongKo

    Unahin muna dapat ng COMELEC ang issue tungkol sa PCOS na walang source code dahil sa away ng DOMINION at SMARTMATIC na syang magpapatakbo sa PCOS. Ang pina certify ng COMELEC na source code bago lang para sa PCOS ay para lang pala sa na postpone na ARMM elections na pang regional lang. Ang source code na kailangan ay pang national dahil di lamang local positions ang pagbobotohan kundi ang mga senador  at party list din na national in coverage. COMELEC marami na po ang nakakaalam at di ito pwedeng di pansinin dahil kayo ang mananagt dahil nasimulan na natin na sa kapalpakan dapat meyrong mananagot. Kawawa kayo pag kayo ay magpagamit lang.
