Di ako suplado! Majayjay Mayor Jojo Clado notes strict Comelec campaign rules, reminds voters he’s not snobbish
The local campaign period will now begin, and Majayjay Mayor Jojo Clado has noted the strictness of the rules laid down by the Commission on Elections.
In a Facebook post, Clado said that under the latest guidelines, handshakes fist bumps, cheek bussing and selfies were prohibited during house to house campaigning and motorcades.
People who don’t belong to the same household can’t be in the same vehicle either, he said.
The penalties for violating these are strict as well, he said.
The campaign would surely be difficult, he said, event as he noted that national candidates have been flouting these rules.
But Clado said he would have to comply with regulations, as his rivals could easily make a big deal out of one violation.
He also wants to minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus, and of course, to serve as a good example to the people.
He just wants them to keep in mind that if he seems elusive to touch, it’s not because he’s suplado; he’s just following the Comelec’s rules!
“COMELEC GUIDELINES SA HOUSE-TO-HOUSE, MOTORCADE, AT MEETINGS HINIGPITAN.
Naglabas po ang Comelec ng bagong resolution 10769 na mas pinahigpit ang ilang probisyon ng dating resolution 10732. Sa lumang resolution, sa House-to-House campaign lang bawal ang mangamay, mag fist bump, mag beso, umakbay, selfies, pumasok sa bahay kahit may pahintulot. Ngayon pati sa motorcade ganun na din. At hindi pwede magsakay sa isang sasakyan na hindi magkakasama sa bahay. Mas pinatindi din ang penalty, kulong na tanggal ka pa sa pwesto pag nanalo ka at di ka na makakatakbo forever dahil sa perpetual disqualification.
Hayys, hirap ng ganitong kampanya. Considering na ang national nga sila pa yung unang sumusuway.
Pero ang hirap po kasi di sumunod. Isang picture o video lang ng kalaban, shoot ka na sa balde. Mahirap na nga din po baka sa dami ng nakakasalamuha naming mga tumatakbo eh kami pa ang magdala ng virus sa inyo. At syempre, bilang isang lingkod bayan, dapat maging mabuti tayong ehemplo.
Kaya wag nyo po sana iisipin na suplado kaming mga kandidato. Papalitan na lang namin ng flying kiss, ngiti at kaway.
#Covid,” Clado posted.
