3 Gâ€™S at work during Barangay elections â€“ PHL Officials | Manila Channel
Former ambassador and Chairperson of Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), Henrietta Tita De Villa, believed that the barangay election this year has become partisan and more violent.
"Violence has really escalated. Vote-buying, too, and sadly even vote-selling," De Villa said. Moreover, De Villa pointed out that the "usual" problems - voters not finding their names in the official Election Day Computerized Voters List (EDCVL), violence, and vote-buying - are hounding today's barangay polls as in previous years. She also stated that there are less PPCRV volunteers in today's polls compared to the previous national elections. PPCRV has only 100,000 volunteers out in the field for the barangay elections compared to the 370,000 volunteers on May and 670,000 in the 2010 national elections. De Villa explained that this is because their volunteers have to take a leave from poll duties if they have relatives running, and since it was a barangay election, more of their volunteers are connected to the candidates. "We have to keep our being non-partisan," she added. Meanwhile, a PPCRV volunteer in Cotabato was punched by a barangay chairman candidate who refused to leave the polling precinct after voting. "We urge our volunteers to report incidence of violence to the PNP and the AFP. Makipag-ugnayan. We are always part of the security team," De Villa said. She encouraged voters to directly report election-related offenses to the Board of Election Tellers (BET) for the cases to be included in the official precinct minutes.

According to the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) chairperson Henrietta de Villa, it is high time for the COMELEC to cleanse its official registry of dubious marginalized sectors.
Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) national chairperson Henrietta de Villa said the prayer service attended by the three leading possible presidential bets in the May 2016 polls had an atmosphere of friendship.
"It was an atmosphere of friendship. The cardinal (Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle) reminded them that we hope even when the rigors of the campaign reached fever pitch that kind of atmosphere, that kind of interaction among the three of them will remain so that the level of the campaign would be elevated, people also look for something like this. Ang sabi ng cardinal bigyan natin bagong dangal ang pag kampanya," she said in an interview. De Villa said that Vice President Jejomar Binay, Senator Grace Poe, Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and two other PPCRV officials, and the Cardinal all prayed together. De Villa said that invitations were sent to the three politicians weeks ago, adding that they might hold another prayer service with other candidates soon. "We might. We would think about it. The cardinal is leaving for Rome synod of family. He would be gone for the whole October, so after na lang we will see," she added. - PNA
