NCR all set for 2019 midterm polls

With all security preparations in place, Metro Manila is ready for the 2019 midterm elections, the National Capital Region Police Office said Friday.

“All the 8,298 vote counting machines were delivered to 723 polling centers, said NCRPO chief Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar.

“The final testing and sealing of the machines are all done. All official ballots were transported from the National Printing Office to the City Treasurer’s Office last week,” he added.

Eleazar said 16,000 police personnel would be deployed to secure Monday’s elections.

“The personnel deployment is not just in polling centers or canvassing areas, but also to maintain our anti-criminality efforts,” he said. “There’s no room to be complacent. Criminal elements might strike anytime, anywhere.”

He said the NCRPO would continue implementing the gun ban and checkpoint operations across Metro Manila until June 13, the last day of the election gun ban.

Eleazar told the five district directors of Metro Manila to “always ask directives from the Comelec” on possible security concerns they could encounter at voting precincts.

The NCRPO oversees five police districts – the Manila Police District, the Quezon City Police District, the Northern Police District, the Southern Police District, and the Eastern Police District.

“I have guided all NCRPO police officers to act in accordance with their mandate and conscience – to be above political affairs, to be fair, judicious, and determined so we can uphold the integrity of the elections,” Eleazar said.

“Arrest those who violate the Election Code, charge them and pursue their cases in court – that is my order to all our police officers. As such, I am requesting all candidates and stakeholders in this coming election to exercise prudence and fair play,” he added.

Eleazar said the PNP placed all its units in Metro Manila on full alert.

“Full alert means the highest level of readiness in all police offices and units and all personnel should be accounted for 100 percent,” Eleazar said. “All leaves are cancelled, except for those that are emergency in nature. All of our policemen are present in their different offices or stations.”
