The Philippine Air Force delivers election paraphernalia in remote barangays in Tapaz

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) delivered election paraphernalia and personnel in three far-flung villages of the town of Tapaz in Capiz last week, and remain on standby for other possible support needed for the May 13 midterm elections.


“The PAF airlifted election personnel including our election paraphernalia such as Vote Counting Machines for Barangay Rizal Norte, Rizal Sur and Hilwan,” Election Officer Lene A. Sausa said in an interview on Saturday.

She noted that these three barangays, with a combined total of 825 registered voters, could take as long as 18 hours to reach from the town center by foot and motorcycle.

Ms. Sausa added that airlifting the materials and election officers is also part of security measures, although she stressed that there are no sightings of rebel groups in these areas. Lt. Col Dennis Q. Alcarde, group commander of the PAF-Tactical Operations Group 6 (PAF-TOG 6), said they are ready for further instructions from the Commission on Elections. “We are on standby… but after elections, most probably we will be providing them again with air support,” he said. — Emme Rose S.
