MANILA — Philippine National Police chief General Dionardo Carlos believes that the conduct of a nationwide mock election this December 29 will help the police force to observe the actual flow of the process for the upcoming 2022 National and Local Elections.
“We will be waiting for the official advisory from Comelec regarding the planned mock elections. But definitely, the PNP is willing to extend assistance for this activity,” Carlos assured.
Carlos said that this pre-election activity will help the PNP in determining a strategic plan for the deployment and evaluation of the aspects that need improvement.
Under the Omnibus Election Code, the PNP personnel aren’t allowed to get inside the different voting precincts but are assigned to maintain peace and order around the vicinity.
The PNP will also be tasked to secure the transportation of ballots and other election paraphernalia. (ai/mtvn)
