Massive vote-buying in Surigao del Norte observed

Massive vote-buying also marred the Barangay and SK polls in Surigao del Norte. Reports reaching PIA showed that the going rate in a barangay in Surigao City was up to P500 per voter.

A resident who requested anonymity said since Saturday, she received a total of P1,350.00.

Meanwhile, PIA's Jennifer P. Gaitano reported from Agusan del Norte that Comelec was still awaiting for some ballots to arrive before 12 noon today.

Comelec Agusan del Norte Provincial Election Supervisor and Caraga Assistant Regional Director Atty. Roland Edayan said some precincts in the province lacked official ballots and they had already informed COMELEC Central Office regarding the matter.

Atty. Edayan also said, if said ballots will not arrive before 12 noon today, voting time of the affected precincts will be extended until 5 p.m.

Also, COMELEC will have to reset the precinct elections on the following day if ballots will not be delivered today. (PIA)

what else is new. vote buying will never ends as long as there are money hungry voters around. remember the law of supply and demand no demand no supply. it is really sad. phil will never improve and the sure losers is the town itself or barrios. probably money alloted for the projects will go to the wrong hands. again a repeat of what happened during the previous administration it is a vicious cycle.
