AFP STATEMENT  |  Baranggay and Sangguniang Kabataan Election 2018

After a series of deliberate planning conferences that include contingent events, the measures, and the resources to address the same, the AFP is all set for tomorrow’s Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKEs). Thus far, there are no serious threat monitored in regard to the conduct of elections. Nonetheless, contingency measures were laid out including the deployment of sufficient number of specially trained and equipped AFP personnel in COMELEC-identified red areas. Despite our active involvement in the BSKE however, the AFP compliments its election duties with focused combat, intelligence, and civil-military operations. That is to help ensure that no unscrupulous individuals or groups—be they private armed, local terrorists, or Communist terrorist groups— take advantage or hamper the conduct of the elections. A peaceful, orderly, and honest BSKE is of particular significance to the AFP. By securing the people to go out and reflect their will in the ballots, we are assured of Barangays that will partner with the AFP in bringing about peace and stability in the countryside.” PAOAFP / MCAG
