DILG asks LGUs, candidates to clean up campaign trash

DILG asks LGUs, candidates to clean up campaign trash

The Department of the Interior and Local Governments on Tuesday called on local officials and candidates to clean up their localities and remove campaign materials.

“The polls are over and the people have decided on who deserves to lead them towards genuine change. The immediate task at hand is to call on your supporters to clean up and rid our communities of poll trash,” Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said.

“Win or lose, show that you are a good sport and that you have the best intentions for your communities by being part of the clean-up drive in your areas,” he added.

Año said all barangay captains, mayors, and governors should lead the cleanup, together with employees of local government units, especially the sanitation division or environmental management office.

He said he expected that like in previous elections, there would be tons of trash left in the roads and public places leading to and in the polling precincts because of the numerous election campaign posters, sample ballots, flyers, leaflets, and tarpaulins that the candidates distributed.

Año said cleaning up election trash would not only make the surroundings clean but “will also be an opportunity for our people to gather and work together, turn a new page, and look forward to more good things for our people and our nation.”

“Let us show that we Filipinos have discipline. Let us remove any trace of the just-concluded polls and start cleaning our surroundings to prove that we have a clean motive in serving the people,” he said.

The secretary said the clean-up efforts in public schools, which served as polling precincts, should be fast-tracked in time for the opening of classes in June.

Año’s remarks were echoed by the Commission on Elections.

"Hey candidates — winners and also-rans — the elections are over. Take down your posters," Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said in a Twitter post.
