CALASIAO  – Days into the campaign period for the national positions, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in the Ilocos Region reminded all political candidates to abide by the common poster area rule.
Election Officer Jeremias Mencias of Calasiao advised all national politicians to check with local election registrars of towns and cities to know the common designated area where they can display their campaign posters.
He said posting of campaign materials on trees, electric posts, telephone posts, bridges, and structures administered by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) as well as on the properties of the Department of Education (DepEd), is strictly prohibited by the Comelec resolutions.
He added that painting of campaign advertisements on public and private walls or fences is also prohibited.
Based on Comelec Resolution No. 9615, common poster areas refer to public places such as plazas, markets, barangay centers and the like where posters may be readily seen or read with the heaviest pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the city or municipality.
Mencias said candidates with campaign materials posted in places other than the designated common poster areas will be held liable.

Last week, the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Dagupan City removed all the campaign posters of national position aspirants displayed in areas other than the Comelec designated common poster areas.  (PIA-1, Pangasinan)
