Celso to electorate: ‘Beware of vote-buying’


Congressman Celso Lobregat  is reminding the electorate of Zamboanga City to be careful and don’t be persuaded by candidates or their supporters who will be engaging into vote-buying for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections on Monday.

Lobregat said that his office received reports about some aspirants for the barangay elections who are allegedly promising certain amount in exchange for the votes of their family and relatives in favor for the said candidate.

“As much as possible, I would like to remind the public to please maintain the sanctity of their votes, they should not sell their vote to those candidates who look at them as a commodity,” Lobregat said.

The solon added that in any conduct of electoral process, such news proliferates and cannot be avoided, but it depends of the voters on how they are going to treat the situation.

“We should be vigilant and inform the COMELEC of those candidates who are engaging in such unlawful actions before and during the election day, they should not be elected into office because of their ulterior motive,” Lobregat said.

While the session is on break in Congress, Lobregat will be in town to vote for his choice of candidates who will lead his Barangay Zone 3 on the May 14, 2018 Barangay and SK elections. – Dexter Yap
