Ang Dating Daan members harassed, shooed away by election officers

Cansinala, Pampanga – Voters in Cansinala, Pampanga were shooed away by three members of Board of Election Inspectors and a baranggay captain because they don’t speak Kapampangan, a dialect in Pampanga north of the Philippines.

Local Philippine channel, UNTV  were also barred from covering precinct 19.   Reports from UNTV showed that voters, belonging from the Ang Dating Daan group led by Bro. Eli Soriano, were being shooed away because they are not supporting Tetangco, a running Mayor in the said province.

“They said that our faces are not familiar with them that’s why they won’t allow us to vote,” one of the voters barred from voting said.

ADD reportedly have been supporting Tetangco’s rival because of numerous harassment that the group was experiencing under the incumbent administration.

Daniel Razon, host of Pollwatch 2010 on UNTV 37, calls on the media men to be more watchful and report the said harassment to Comelec officials. [Citizen Report by Anne Gonzales]

Kodigo. While waiting for his turn, a voter makes one last review of his bet.

    not a good one..but God knows the real intention of what they have done..depriving one’s right to vote during election just because of unfamiliar faces they see,this is obviously injustice,everyone has the right to vote..

    yeah .. definitely injustice .. it’s never been a prerequisite to be able to speak a certain dialect to vote .. shame on those dishonorable acts done by dishonorable people .. !

    Bakit Kaya Ganuon Masyado Silang Takot Sa Mga Taga DATING DAAN Diba Sila Rin Ang May Sabi Konti Ang Meyembro Ng DATING DAAN. Siguro Yan Din Ang Nararamdaman Ng mga Unang Naglignkod Sa DIOS, Takot Din Ang Mga Kalaban Ng Israel sa Kanila Kasi Alam Nila Na May Kasamang Dios Ang Israel.Katulad Ng Mga Meyembro Ng DATING DAAN na May DIOS na pinagtitiwalaan. Salamat Sa DIOS Sa Mga Paguusig, Panggigipit at Pagpapahirap. Mas laong Titingkad ang Paglilingkod Natin.

    that is unfair just, they are just not faces on the place and they dont know how to speak kapampangan (language there) doesnt mean that they dont have the right to vote there? they should have the right as long as they are registered on that precint and i know this is another movement of those who lusts in power.

    well its another story of depriving the right to vote and its not justifiable may i say its immature then right?

    God knows every intention people make whether its good or bad and we cannot hide anything from HIM that s why we should be careful with whatever decision will make in life.

  12. If the identity of the voter is questioned, the voter must show valid proof of ID. Voter’s Religion is an irrelevant information in this case.
