Bets ink peace covenant

After both candidates for the vacant Negros Occidental 5th district congressional seat had signed a peace covenant yesterday, Provincial Comelec supervisor Jessie Suarez enjoined the winner of the June 2 special election to be magnanimous in victory, and for the loser to have the fortitude to accept defeat.

Binalbagan Mayor Alejandro Mirasol and his nephew, Board Member Emilio Yulo III, who are vying for the congressional seat, signed the peace covenant, that imposes voluntary obligation for them to obey Comelec rules and regulations governing the conduct of a peaceful, orderly, honest and credible election on Saturday.

The two candidates pledged to renounce the use of threats, violence, force, intimidation, partisan or private armed groups and other illegal means in furtherance of their political interest interests, as well as discuss only legitimate political issues and lay down platform of government through free and friendly manner.moremoremore

Binalbagan Mayor Alejandro Mirasol and his nephew, Board Member Emilio Yulo III, are running against each for the 5th district congressional seat. Mirasol and the father of Yulo, former Isabela mayor-turned Board Member Emilio Yulo Montalvo, are cousins.moremoremore
